played, and he's the best and he's played in europe. every nation should be proud, proud of him, but i am maybe not even competent person to come in because there is a 2 sides in the one sort of side which support entirely. and he's big and another side. i am chief time boxing a and why i duplex an issue because i take care of myself, but mostly i think people around me. so it's not the case about no joke. and it was, it was not clearly, rather he got qualities and he, he's also not clear. basically he's q r codes on he's, he's documentation. so he knows perfectly that he's coming close to the enormous district regulations. so being fine or not, of jokers being 30 to one side, but being academicians in science,
7:06 pm
if you could assist us and someone who is very low, be the person, it's opposite side. so i do not joke, which is great at this moment, because if you, if you can, for the know the country of commonwealth, some other countries can follow regulation. and if you understand in europe, in some european country, we just bought the sink and get your visa and it gets you the way for 2 years then other countries has to follow. he's in his entire career. it's jeopardize and as jock of which as legal troubles unfold, australia is battling a surgeon corona virus infections. its most popular state of new south wales has reported a 3rd day of record number of deaths. hospitals are struggling with staff shortages on disrupted supply chains, leading to empty supermarket shelves. in europe, germany has reported its highest number of infections since the pandemic began more
7:07 pm
than 1900000 new cases. the highly contagious army con, very, it now accounts for most of those infections. health officials are warning if cases continue to climb. they could then swamp the health care system. the pandemic is also pushing germany to the brink of an economic recession. europe's largest economy shrank at the end of 2021 with output falling by up to one percent in the last financial quarter. another decline like that could force the country into a recession. over in the us, it's been reporting an average of $800000.00 new cases. a day for the past week, hospitals are struggling with their highest ever number of cobra, 1900 patients. the centers for disease control says the death toll could be as high as $62000.00 in the next month. we have 2 correspondent, falling wave of the kron infection sweeping across europe on the u. s. kimberly how kit is live in washington dc. but 1st, let's talk to dominate kane, who's joining us in berlin, dominic to, to give us an update on the situation across germany.
7:08 pm
the situation here is in one sense, worse than it has ever been. the incidence of cove it sought me here in the german capital is higher than it has ever been. the numbers of new infections across the entire country is higher than it has ever been. that number, and that number itself more than $92000.00 announced on friday. that's itself a rec hold. but 10 percent higher than the previous day thursday which itself was also a record at $81000.00. so it's very clear for medics and ministers right now. this is the worst headache they could possibly have in a political sense that trying to keep a lid on army chrome and in some people's eyes. failing at a news conference on friday, the question was put to the new health minister called lots of our that may be because some people say ami chrome is milder for most people who are infected with
7:09 pm
it, that it should be allowed to to run ravage as it were through the country and thereby helped build a heard immunity. this is the reaction. the minister came up with on this lana ford in duncanville swindle. i warned against the idea that we in germany should accept a full blown epidemic. the number of victims that we then would have to mourn is uncertain, is certainly too high, and it would also not lead to protection against further variance afterwards. because we cannot deduce from the current infection and rather is unlikely. it's worth also. bearing in mind that right at this moment, around 2 thirds of all the cove, it patients in intensive care in german hospitals are on vaccinated. remember that there are many millions of people in this country who still have had not even one vaccination. and it is they who the government trying to prioritize whilst repeating their mantra of where a mosque ventilate your buildings where possible and get that booster. why?
7:10 pm
because they believe omicron is a particularly dangerous menace as it were for them here in germany right now. thank you so much, sandra, calling reporting from berlin. well, for a situation across the us, let's bring in our white house correspondent kimberly hancock. the u. s. also reporting record numbers. kimberly. so where are the hot spots and how are the hospitals coping? well, the hospitals are still struggling, and that's why you as president joe biden, deployed another round of military doctors and nurses to 6 hot spots around the united states. 6, a states that are particularly high in terms of not only the infections, but also the hospitalizations and deaths. now in terms of how this federal response is be received by the general public, it's getting low marks because there's a lot of frustration that the president knew. this would be a difficult winter, would even it without the i'm a chron variant. and the problem is,
7:11 pm
is that still the public does not have widespread access to free testing masking. so what we're waiting for is further guidance from the white house on that. it's been promised for weeks. and we understand that some of that new guidance could be available later today on friday. so we're watching carefully for that. but in the midst of all of this, the overarching message from the white house has been get vaccinated. the problem is it's vaccination effort to try and at least force the federal employers as well as private employers with a 100 plus employees. is that the supreme court struck down that effort, saying that it was in violation of civil liberties. and as a result, only health care facilities that receive federal dollars can enforce this mandate. so this has been a problem for joe biden. he is getting low approval ratings. he's struggling to get ahead of the narrative that his promise to really get
7:12 pm
a grasp on the cove. it epidemic has not come to fruition. in addition, what we should point out given the patchwork of regulations that exist, we're seeing that further exacerbated by the fact that local jurisdictions alike. for example, washington d. c, were we are, are putting in place their own regulations starting on saturday. d. c will be requiring for you to go to a gym, a, a restaurant, to bar up theater that you'll have to show proof of vaccination. and this is something that is be pushed back on by conservatives in the united states, particularly the ones in congress, given the fact that congress is in washington dc. the riding high from that supreme court victory. and they say they won't comply with these local guidance in the end really mandates for those who have not been vaccinated to be prevented from entering these public spaces. so they're still a real tug of war going on in the united states over these vaccine mandates. and that is not expected to improve. but the good news and glimmer of hope is that the
7:13 pm
public health officials believe they may have turned a corner on the high number of infections from i'm a crime or i thank you very carefully. see what more the u. s president may have to say about that. okay, great. thank you so much. kimberly hallett reporting from washington dc. the office for the u. k. prime minister wars johnson has apologized to the queen officer to merge the party was held on the event on the eve. excuse me, off her husband's funeral to gatherings were reported to have taken place in downing street during a corona virus lockdown on april 16. the next day, the queen attended the socially distant funeral of prince philip, and on wednesday, for his johnson apologized for attending a separate drinks events. the barker has the latest from london. the government's bois on some already very much in crisis mode. and now this which isn't going to do the prime minister any favors. i mean, picture the scene, it's april. the 16th 2020 talk 2021. it was a warm evening. i know where i was that evening. i and inside the doors of number
