3:23 am
single day so you can visit us reports 23 islands in a single cruise you can visit for destinations so i think out you cruising is good and this summer and talked to mom danger i think that moment is where. companies with the large cruise. tried to enter the orient to the market to quickly. but you know i think there's so much tomorrow especially for cruising next year and it looks like looking at greece doesn't have a big cruise industry at the moment it's been it's been waning over the last few years there are less companies now operating at a very good thing is that the cruise industry has all the protocols in place and all the enhanced sanitation increased air conditioning and all the prescreening so it should be easy to trace. if anyone comes down with the virus.
3:24 am
however just like any other place whether it's an ice skating rink or it's a girl or sort if it's that environment where you have in detainment tracing everybody it's a bit of a bit of a labor job all the thousands of people have launched in the german capital to protest against a virus or strictures that about 17000 demonstrators joined that rally before police moved in to disperse them germany is seeing a spike in new infections john mccain reports from valen. on saturday morning 955 new cases of corona virus were announced in germany and 7 new dance on saturday afternoon thousands of people came out to protest about the measures aimed at stopping the pandemic getting any worse the current rules are nowhere near a strict as early as june the pandemic but for some people they are still too harsh and they say scientifically unjustified. there are thousands
3:25 am
and thousands of scientists and doctors worldwide who have not heard silenced face since it all discredited as conspiracy theory defenders even though they've run entire universities protests against the coronavirus measures have been occurring sporadically for many months and this time like in many others elements from the far right of german society were present organize. saturday's protests had hoped to bring half a 1000000 people to berlin police only a small fraction of that number turned up there's no doubting the strength of feeling of many of the people protesting against the corona measures in the streets but equally there's no doubting the consternation these protests calls in senior ministerial circles not just here federally in berlin but also right across the states that make up the federal republic. just a few days ago ministers decided to implement mandatory covert 19 tests for everyone flying to germany from high risk areas and in the state of bavaria the
3:26 am
prime minister singled out what he considers the danger of thinking the threat from the virus is either over or exaggerated. we need to be careful that many individual cases in germany don't become a slowly progressing 2nd wave the main reason is that unreasonable behavior carelessness and in some cases a conscious decision to ignore hygiene protocols are unfortunately on the rise in opinion polls suggest many germans support that view 87 percent think it's right to wear masks in public 73 percent agree a mass the most covering is helpful but not these crowds in berlin for them what matters is their personal freedom to not wear a mask if they don't want to and to resist the very social distancing the vast majority of their fellow citizens except dominic came out berlin.

well u.s. major league baseball commissioner rob manfred says the league could be forced to shut down if corona virus infections continue to rise among players on friday the milwaukee brewers should have been playing their home opener against us and louis cardinals that game was cancelled after 2 cardinals players tested positive for 19 and there are reports that saturday's game will also be cancelled off to another food people from the cardinals organization tested positive i certainly understand the importance of trying to get back on the field but we recognize the importance of player and staff safety as well so. really sense for people's patience in all this. everybody understands that you know these are these are new times for us and we're trying to understand how to work through them when major league baseball began just over a week ago aiming to get through a reduced 16 game said joe 4 months off of the season was originally due to start but 17 games have already been postponed the miami marlins have had $21.00 positive

3:29 am
possible that really is i think the main thing is making sure and listening to that the demi ologists of the marlins outbreak was 1st reported major league baseball's initial plan was to just shut them down for 2 days the same players who were healthy players to baltimore well today for you know it's less time than the virus cities to incubate and eventually they changed it to be shut down for one full week but most epidemiologists are saying if you want to really get this fire's out of there out of the marlins clubhouse you have to shut the marlins down for 2 weeks major league baseball is guilty of trying to return to quickly when they very serious situation pops up there dressed up to a degree again the marlins and phillies will have been out for 9 days late in however really listening to the scientists here is going to be crucial before oh long day magic for jonathan isaak has become the fast basketball player and not to mail sharing the u.s. national anthem since the restart of the n.b.a.
