south african authorities have reimposed a curfew and an alcohol ban. with no vaccine millions across the world face similar prospects of cope with 19 cases continue to grow. welcome to you covered in special and dwi monica jones in berlin good to have you with us so experts have been warning of a 2nd wave saying it would most likely hit in winter but as we know by now sars cove too is full of surprises israel manage the 1st wave really well but only weeks later the country is struggling with a new coronavirus outbreak case numbers hit record highs this week the new normal 1st register your personal details and take a temperature check before you can enter a cafe in jerusalem student shot on live near spirit of the number of corona virus cases is once again bracing sharply she lost her part time job during the lockdown in march and april now she's facing renewed uncertainty.
12:46 pm
but i want to pray to the health issues and the economic situation students are getting infected people my age it's not only the over sixty's so it's frightening. and financially i'm still unemployed i still have to pay my rent. and then tell him i'm in there. early on israel closed its borders and imposed a strict lockdown for several weeks at a cost and employment rose from $4.00 to more than 20 percent but schools and businesses started to reopen in may a few weeks ago it looked like israel never get it its way quite well through the koran a pandemic that has changed dramatically special corner wards and hospitals and right through testing centers like this one had to be reopened these testing stations had closed because there was no demand now cars are lining up again
12:47 pm
experts are discussing what went wrong there were no strategic preparation. what will happen after the lockdown and what we've seen now the 2nd wave is lead is a result of that in action during the fair 1st wave and it's unfortunate because we're one of the few countries which ended the 1st wave with 300 deaths fewer infections and we could have revived economy very worried prime minister binyamin netanyahu was widely praised for his handling of the crisis 1st time around that has changed people are worried about defection quaver. new restrictions were announced this week including increasing fines for not wearing masks limiting the number of people in public areas and restaurants. it feels like you do serve you 1st shift done little bit who had just reopened this fish restaurant in town of
12:48 pm
beef you don't know if you're going to work tomorrow or not. last. tap and it was very surprising. this time we're more ready for that. but still the uncertainty is very. confusing another prolonged lockdown might still be on the cards a dismal prospect for most israelis who thought the worst was already over. and israelis aren't alone of course that threat is on the press and how do we deal with that steven taylor is professor and clinical psychologist and the department of psychiatry at the university of british columbia in vancouver and he's also the author of the psychology of pandemics preparing for the next global outbreak of infectious diseases it's so good to have you with us let me start by asking you do you cope with the pandemic. well it's important to set
12:49 pm
a structure for yourself and to set realistic expectations as we know those pandemic will be eventual be over we don't know when but it is trying keep on with your life as normally as you possibly can so but some people find the very difficult what would you say is worse for our psyche in such a situation having to deal with an invisible but potentially lethal virus or having to give up our social habits well it depends on the person some people have no problem giving up this the social habits they quite happy to sit at home other people find it very difficult so very much differs from person to person. people are experiencing this pandemic in different ways to some people the biggest concern of the socio economic impacts like not having a job for other people who might have preexisting medical conditions the biggest concerns of their physical health and what is vice could you perhaps give those who who really find it difficult to deal with it. what they need to reach out i mean
12:50 pm
for a start you could reach out to friends and family and connect with those individuals if that doesn't work there are internet resources where you can go online and get help for anxiety related problems so those sorts of things is important to do sorts of planning are a lot of resources out there were people need to go and look for them and what how big a role does our psyche have in actually spreading the virus are we actually contributing to spreading the virus. well viruses spread it depends on what people do it choose not to do if the lockdown ends and we go out to pubs and parks and beaches and and congregate together that is going to contribute to the the the arrival of the next wave so we need to consider our behavior that plays a vital role in the spreading and containment of infection and professor taylor and i report because you touched touched upon something our behavior in this report we heard that israel hadn't prepared for the time after the lockdown so what lessons
12:51 pm
can be learned what what could or should we do that at least we can prevent to the 2nd way for deal with it or. what we need to understand from a start it's very difficult to predict how things will unfold there are a lot of uncertainties and what's going to make it easier for people who have to go into a 2nd lockdown if health authorities can use the modeling or use the lessons i've learned from the 1st doctor to try and predict how long the 2nd lockdown will last that's going to help people cope if people are told ok you got to be in lockdown for say 6 weeks that's going to be a lot easier for them to deal with than if they didn't know how long they're going to be and so making this whole experience more predictable more controllable is going to ease the stress on people and therefore make it easier for them to comply with lockdown all right professor steven taylor there from the department of psychiatry at the university of british columbia it's certainly a learning by doing thank you so much for your expertise and your time thanks very
12:52 pm
much. well i'm sure you'll have many many more questions and to now is the time for some more of those our science correspondent eric williams stands by under ready to get some on says. can a mother who is a symptomatic breastfeeding. it must be terrifying for the mother of an infant to test positive for a covert 19 whether she displays symptoms or not because the relationship is such an intimate one physically that it seems highly unlikely that the baby won't contract the disease as well despite the threat though both the w.h.o. and most national health authorities urge mothers who have tested positive for the disease whether they're symptomatic or not to continue to breastfeed because the benefits of breastfeeding and skin to skin contact between mother and child substantially outweigh any risks associated with coded 19 for the child so it
12:53 pm
still isn't 100 percent certain that breast milk always remains completely free from the virus but but the evidence indicates that it's not really spread that way the mothers who test positive should however follow a list of precautions to try to prevent passing the virus along to their baby if this is an issue for you i recommend really taking the time to read the much more extensive information posted on the w.h.o. and c.d.c. web sites that can actually help calm your fears especially to learn that most newborns and infants who get killed at 19 have mild or no symptoms and will eventually as far as we can tell recover fully. so why do most infected newborns recover it easily. we aren't certain why
12:54 pm
there are. so few reports of babies with severe cases of coke at 19 because that isn't the case with other respiratory diseases like like influenza for example but there are several hypotheses that could be that differences between the infant immune system and the adult immune system are playing a role babies have higher numbers a some virus killing immune cells than adults have. infant immune systems are also less likely to plunge into into dangerous cytokine storms and and and don't forget that kids are not yet saddled with all this sort of baggage of co-morbidities that we acquire in the course of our lives things like like heart disease and diabetes a more contested school of thought says that because babies have fewer ace 2 receptors which are those receptor is that the virus uses to get into the cell that
12:55 pm
that's having an effect on disease severity but whatever's causing the phenomenon it's really not the 1st time that we've seen it in connection with a corona virus on children were also less affected during the sars and merce epidemics. and you can post your questions today on our you tube channel if you'd like to keep up with the latest developments on the coronavirus to subscribe to our new slate to just log on to d w dot com corona dash. well 2nd wave or no 2nd wave staying safe is a good policy in any case now one couple in brazil who is doing so in style once they get to their spacesuits on the they're ready to take on the world. and. are both in their mid sixty's and to are in high risk groups they hope to send
12:56 pm
