coronavirus is catching hospital staff as well as politicians off guard in germany. emergency wards like this one close to munich are filling up so fast, a patient was sent to italy for treatment. translation: the situation was foreseeable _ and could have been avoided. the right measures that would have prevented this health system from being put in such a situation again were not taken. lower—than—expected vaccination rates may steal christmas for many. christmas markets that do open may only welcome the vaccinated or recently recovered. translation: we can't do an hinu but follow these rules. it is a way to protect everyone. but politicians here are in the market for much more. many keen to unwrap restrictions for the unvaccinated on public transport for a return
to homeworking and vaccine mandates for certain professions. the incoming coalition government will consult state leaders on thursday. also from thursday, in ireland, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs will have to close at midnight and people will be advised to work from home. all to combat rising covid cases despite one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. all across europe and across our country, it is increasingly clear that we are experiencing another surge of covid infection. in the last week alone, we have seen the second highest rate of hospital admission in all of 2021. but in holland, there is political division over plans that unvaccinated people will no longer be able to go to cafes and restaurants with a negative test. with entry only for the vaccinated or those who have just recovered from covid. with austria's lockdown for the unvaccinated in full swing,
there are some questioning the wisdom of policies requiring mandatory vaccines or locking down the unvaccinated. this raises real issues of civil liberties. this raises real issues around human rights and it's something that governments should consider extremely carefully. but there are few easy solutions for europe's governments as cases surge. mark lobel, bbc news. the tensions are escalating on the border between poland and belarus. polish security forces have turned to water cannon and tear gas to push back migrants on the belarus side who are seeking a way into the european union. the polish government has accused belarus of trying to force those more migrants across the border in order to destabilise the eu. steve rosenberg reports.
first, they'd asked to be let in. now, they were demanding. in belarus, the migrants have run out of patience. these are polish water cannon being employed, and that is because, around midday, migrants on the belarusian side of the border started throwing stones and rocks and branches. and all chaos has broken out. the polish forces have responded with water, but also with gas — it's quite difficult to breathe. we don't have life here! four nights and five nights, and don't sleeping. my eyes. for two hours, the border crossing was like a battleground.
the european union says belarus is using migrants as weapons to destabilise europe. the belarusian soldiers stood and watched. they did nothing to stop the migrants who were storming the border. "why not?" i asked this officer. his reply, "no comment." and while water cannon fought off the attack on the eu's border, the young and the vulnerable took shelter. belarus may have engineered this crisis, but that doesn't change the fact that it's people who are suffering. this man is an actor from kurdistan. his brother sold his house so they could afford their tickets and visas to belarus. where do you go now? i don't know. to iraq, to europe, to the camp, to minsk... we don't know where we're going. we are like a ball, like a ball in the stadium.
belarus and poland, they kick us. when the violence was over, some of the migrants packed up and moved on. they'd come to belarus to try to get into the european union. now, it's destination unknown. steve rosenberg, bbc news, belarus. at least one person has died and several are missing in the canadian province of british columbia after heavy rain storms caused extensive flooding and triggered mudslides. emergency crusade at least ten vehicles were swept off a highway and they fear there may be more fatalities. the region has received one month's worth of rain in the last 2a hours. the senate in chile has requested that iraq rejected a proposal to open

did a 24—hour drumming with a whole team of people to the bbc news countdown clock, you have to look for that. do find it! i willjoin you shortly for the business stories. wednesday morning will be a little bit colder compared to the last couple of mornings. and, indeed, by day, it'll feel a touch fresher, too. but overall, the next 2—3 days will remain above the average for the time of year. i want to show you the jet stream — and there is a dip in thejet stream at the moment across the uk, and you can see the blue colours — so that's the slightly colder atmosphere that's spread across the country into the early hours of wednesday. and, with the clearer skies, that means that, in many towns and cities, temperatures will be around five celsius or so, especially out towards the east and in central parts of the uk. even colder than that in aberdeen, barely above freezing. but that means a lot of bright and crisp weather in the morning, especially across central, eastern, and southern areas of the uk. not necessarily in western scotland and northern ireland,
always a bit more cloud here and a chance of catching a shower. and you can see those temperatures actually not far off the average, just a fraction above. but look what happens on thursday — another change in the jet stream. it's bulging northwards of the uk and allowing for a stream of really mild air to sweep in from the azores. so, mild south—westerlies across the uk, cloudy and damp in western and northern scotland — but where the skies clear, where the sun pops out for any lengthy period of time, temperatures will reach around 15—16, maybe even 17 celsius to the east of the highlands because of something called the foehn effect — you'll have to look that up, not enough time to explain it. but look where we are, nine celsius is the average this time of november — we are talking about 17 celsius, eight degrees above the average for the time of year. and the same pattern continues in a friday, as well — east of the highlands, possibly 17, we could get 16 also east of the pennines, and widely around 111—15 celsius. and then, a reversal in the wind direction — you can see this time, rather than from the south—west, it's coming in straight from the north. now this looks pretty cold, doesn't it? well, it won't be that cold —
it will be relatively speaking, but actually, we'll be going down from 15 to around nine celsius, which, of course, is about the average for the time of year, give or take. well, it won't be that cold — it will be relatively speaking, but actually, we'll be going down from 15 to around nine celsius, which, of course, is about the average for the time of year, give or take. and tear gas to push back migrants.
