tv The Day - News in Review Deutsche Welle July 27, 2020 10:30pm-11:00pm CEST
heller's led the world going up in smoke. looking consecration the world on fire starts aug 12th d w we have 205 back in and dance with the babes. migrant farm workers they do the work that locals won't be except wages locals never would and this year in the middle of a pandemic they face a harvest of hazards like never before in southern germany almost 200 migrant workers on one form have tested positive for covert 19 a rural viral hotspot in a country suddenly caught in corona creep is the pandemic catching up with germany i burned off in berlin this is the day.
we keep warning and we keep being proven right corona is not over the death even if he isn't enough just we have 480 coronavirus tests and 167 positive results soon and get tested to belittle it including hoof couple offenses being erected in rank found says that nobody can leave him and this continent. we have to ask ourselves how we want to increase our chances of getting through this pandemic well we do get some to do even if germany seems stable compared to other countries we should be under no illusions extended to asian corona is sneaking its way back and with all its strength our government on the must. also coming up tonight the late us congressman john lewis will remember his fight for civil rights and will remember his vision of america for the world that he once shared with us i believe
if we can get it right here in america maybe we can sort of a model for the rest of the world. and to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome we begin the day with a reminder from down on the farm that the pandemic isn't go. and anywhere in southern germany in bavaria around $170.00 migrant field workers have tested positive for coated night seems the news today prompted by various leader to warn that a 2nd wave of the corona virus could already be in the making of germany has been praised for its early and decisive action when the pandemic arrived here in europe but that was 5 months ago now with more people traveling on summer vacations the number of new infections is rising again people returning from high risk areas such
as the united states must now be tested for 19 it's hoped that mandatory testing will keep the viral spread under control but that is little comfort to the legions of migrant farm workers here in germany when germany shut down and closed its borders back in march an exception was made for tens of thousands of migrant worker stood 10 the fields as we are learning tonight that exception came with exceptional health risks around 3000 people live in the bavarian town of manning and many are now waiting for coronavirus tests a farm is under quarantine after 174 migrant workers tested positive for cove and 19 officials are trying to find out how they became infected and if the virus has spread outside the farm. there are strict hygiene guidelines for businesses employing seasonal staff but various state premier says they were not followed.
officials on the local and regional level say that hygiene inspections work carried out at this farm but there are obviously feen violations of this truce and that's why action has to be taken now. he said been very it would tighten its coronavirus rules. even if you have businesses will face more frequent hygiene inspections and they'll be carried out by mixed teams from the public health commerce and agricultural departments which of from. the very it will also step up testing of employees and violations of social distancing and hygiene regulations could incur fines of up 225000 euros instead of 5000 before people in miami are waiting to find out if the virus has spread from the farm to the town if tests show that has happened they likely face a new lockdown. he is in the southern germany tonight for
a 2nd evening to you kate so what is the latest what more do we know about these 170 workers. well we know that one person is currently being treated in hospital and local authorities have said a handful of those employees hair at the farm behind me have tested positive 1000 have been showing the common symptoms of 19 and in the meantime all employees almost 500 employees including the owner and his family are in quarantine behind this fence that you might still just about be able to see through the darkness behind me here and that's 24 hour security in place as well at the moment to ensure that nobody leaves comes in without the correct authorization you know a lot of attention on this area and these people tonight that hasn't been the case though in the past has it we're learning that migrant workers here in germany they
have been risking their health to produce produce. this in we have a not just during the times of 19 during the pandemic either it's been our secret for a long long time some of the questionable and in many cases die a living and working conditions that a face that migrant workers seasonal workers a face with particularly those working in the food production industry we saw similar stories coming out just a few weeks ago when we had the clave in 1000 outbreaks and slaughter houses as well and the thought at least is that way might be seeing a similar case here in miami as well in bavaria we know from past events that many seasonal workers and migrant workers working in food production here in germany. under paid working very long hours for very little money and often forced to live in very cramped conditions as well which of course the perfect conditions at 19 to
spread like wildfire and it seems at least that what the local authorities here are saying is that some of the the hygiene regulations that have been put in place to prevent covered 9000 from spreading among employees hasn't been adequately implemented but i talked to the to the farm owner earlier this evening and he did night that saying instead that he feels like he's been scapegoated and that he's been left in the lurch by the by the local government here down in bavaria interesting. considering that these workers have all tested positive when you add this to the fact that it's summer in that people are taking their vacations and coming back many of them bringing. with them but all of that together how great is the concern that there will be a 2nd wave of coronavirus infections. that concern certainly is great and it is growing the robot clock institute for public
health in germany has said that the latest jump as well in the number of new cases is something to be extremely worried about and they are watching the figures closely we were seeing case numbers on new cases numbers of about $500.00 per day here in germany that's jim in recent days to over $800.00 and those numbers are expected to increase again tomorrow once all of those results come in from over the weekend so that all measures already being discussed here in germany whether that is going to be perhaps complaints or retesting for people returning from vacation in coming weeks but already several large apple back up in berlin where you are down here in munich and in front 1st as well there are plans to implement. free or voluntary i'm free tests for people returning from holiday but at the moment that not compulsory and over 80 the german health ministry is looking into the
legalities of how they could indeed make that compulsory for people returning to germany from holidays and make sure that people are tested and ensuring as well that they then quarantine themselves to 15 days you know the testing bottle here keep in the southern germany. thank you. in a 100 days democrats can win the white house flip the senate hold the house and win seats down the ballot in a 100 days and we can fight for racial justice and and ensure that black lives matter we can fight for americans with disabilities and keep families together while protecting dreamers. in a 100 days we can restore america's standing in the world and meet the challenge of climate change. we have a 100 days to organize mobilize and prepare for one of the most crucial elections
in modern history. in a 100 days. anyway. you know the democrats say they will win my next guest tonight is determined to make sure that does not happen i'm joined by solomon hugh vice chairman and c.e.o. of republicans over see solomon it's good to have you on the show you got 99 days until the election is there going to be a 2nd trial term yes and absolutely yes what and why i would like to explain why you for one same. way see right now want is total chaos and soccer moms suburban moms they want security they won't rule and order and on top of that when you see the polling and you have to ask the question call
accurate the polls are where they're going to high society. use political correctness to silence you and what happened you have a sign of maturity up there with the silent majority when you call them they don't want to say anything they don't they don't even want to take the call the reason is hope do i know this is in my import ear try to call me and try to trick me to say something then i say something tomorrow i'm going to fire some of them when he does he listen let me just ask you one thing you say these suburban mothers they want security actually these suburban mothers they want to be able to get a coded 19 test done and they want to be able to send their kids to school in safety as americans act as medicine backed tromp want to have that kids
go to school yes and you're right as medicine they want that kids to go to school the school the public school close to our all in areas cities states controlled by democrats so yeah i know that and my daughter is one of them what is the one thing that the us president has done in your opinion that will make schools safe for children in this pandemic president. using he's all thore to make show that those who can open should open and not only that and use the space socialists distance space to open schools and should be local control arms want to open school.
s. federal government is there to help them to achieve that goal so they can go to work and think combo purposefully la those kids at home and mom can go to work for political purposes some of that me as you can see let me ask you one point we have what we have going time and let me be is going to have a landslide oh no you have a 3rd all right let me just ask you one thing we have talked with the lincoln project we've talked with republicans against trump they are republicans working to put a democrat in the white house. what does that say about your party that you've got republicans trying to put a democrat in the white house that tells me traitors everywhere the oldest the people who are the strong people
give us what happened for example those people tried to beat in gage engaging chan and now chana at least all have our side well guess what they want. a lesson in their car trunk i suspicioned that is a claim of course has not been substantiated but some that were unfortunately were out of time solomon hugh vice chairman c.e.o. of republicans oversees solomon thank you very much come back and talk with us the closer we get to election day thank you. thank you all right keeping track of both campaigns will be my colleagues in washington in the u.s. she wus washington correspondent all of her salad he's going to be crossing the u.s. . he joins me tonight from washington. if you heard mr hugh there he was
definitely passionate about his position let's talk about the democrats the presumptive democratic candidate joe biden he's expected to nominate his running mate this week what kind of candidate does he need or brand it's going to be a very difficult decision for him so perhaps he might even be in need more than one candidate because 2 things you want to consider here and that is number one joe biden politically speaking is a centrist and that is of course great for swing voters and you talked about some of them in your recent interview those who voted trump in 2016 but perhaps are not so happy with his policies now and are considering joe biden and that the fact that he's a centrist is at the same time not so great for a very vast amount of bernie sanders supporters of the progressive candidate senator from vermont with his ideas on the left side of the political aisle so that
number one and then to of course joe biden is a very old candidate he's 77 now he would be 7778 by the time he takes office should he win the election so ideally he's looking for someone to compliment him not too old female he promised that perhaps even black progressive but not too much because that would put off the swing voters aren't so what names are being considered. well the list is very long brant but some of the most likely names that are circulating is california senator kemah harris she is fairly young black but yet another centrist of course also her companion was not very successful very much in contrast to elizabeth warren the message choose that senator who had a very successful campaign she would also be grateful to sandra supporters because she was also offering the same progressive ideas but then he she is considered radical by the swing voters also too old for many is so but those in spite of the 2
hot names there are many more on that list that is circulating for the congresswoman val demings for instance former national security adviser susan rice so we can be prepared for surprises once joe biden decides who his pick is a very difficult choice this time around for sure all right there's going to be a busy time between now and election day over salad on the story for us in washington all over thank you. i've. had to lead through john lewis from his former colleagues in congress the american civil rights icon is now lying in state in the rotunda in the u.s. capitol with head of his funeral later this week members of congress and a troubled history paid tribute to the longtime representative from georgia who is
president donald trump did not attend john lewis died 10 days ago at the age of 80. in the 1960 s. lewis was one of the leaders of the civil rights movement alongside dr martin luther king jr he later became a congressman and was widely admired for his championing of civil rights for everyone the w. spoke to the congressman during the presidential election campaign 4 years ago and we asked him what america do you want it is my hope that in the years to come that we were had an america. at peace with the south it will be in gun violence and that we will see it at all about children all of our young people receive the best possible education that we would do what we can to protect the environment i sell all the time we have a right to know what is than
a food we eat what is an ambient hurry. what is in the water we drink and as a nation and as a people we must be involved in saving does look planet save in this little space ship that we called earth. and let people live together. we have one family in america and we are one people and i believe if we can get it right here in america maybe we can serve as a model for the rest of the world. and i was the late civil rights campaigner and congressman john lewis speaking with us 4 years ago americans are bidding farewell to mr lewis now and those who knew him well are sharing their memories w. news washington bureau chief in his poll just spoke with texas congressman al green and she asked him about the memorial inside the u.s. capitol well it was very moving the honorable john lewis is
a person that calls 'd us to have great. emotional. pain in a sense that we miss him already and we we really wanted him to stay with us but we know that he's been called home but it doesn't mean that we don't have some degree of pain. i can recall how he was a calming voice when he was in congress i can recall how he made a difference in legislation a good many pieces of legislation passed because he was voting for it people would ask where is john lewis and as i sat there and i i saw the ceremony develop i just thought in my mind how a person who was born into poverty the grandson of.
sharecroppers. a person who has his heritage rooted in slavery. who was a son of the segregated south. that no one could have predicted at his birth that he would come to congress but who made his way to congress not because he was writing great legislation but because people knew that there needed to be a righteous voice in congress and he became literally that conscious of congress the moral compass of congress he had a true north when it came to righteousness and it was just an amazing thing to sit there and think of how he was able to make his way from the farmlands to the congress of the united states of america and to have the impact that he did on peace peaceful protests and on human rights and civil rights it was it
was quite moving somewhat painful but by the same token. we understand what many people say that his approach of fighting in the nonviolence way is not the right response anymore but you say to that. well that has been a monster of for many people for many many years this is not something new when i was led we heard this is well and before that it was said but i think that. gandhi gave us a great message about nonviolence and peaceful protest dr king took that message and he shared it with john lewis and john lewis took it to heart he literally became the sermon. that he preached he became the supreme superb example of what nonviolence and peaceful
protest is all about so i listen to people hear what they say but i disagree i think this is still the way he demonstrated on the edmund pettus bridge by putting his life on the line that you expose. the flaws and those who would suppress you at a press you. when you are peaceful and you can see how their anger and hate is harmful to society if they hadn't crossed that it went to this bridge knowing they were marching into brutality i'm not sure i would be in congress today because the voting rights act was passed as a result of their being there if they had confronted those men with those clubs if they had confronted them with brutality it would have been just a big melee on the edmund pettus bridge people would be talking about how they were
writing but they had the courage to show peace in the face of hate show love in the face of this hate and in so doing it changed the world i mean congress and a good many others are so i hear them but i disagree with you congressman president trump just announced that he won't come to the capital to pay his respects to lay down the us how do you feel about that. i think that. this is a day to say good things. to the very positive. and i will simply say that i'm here floyd very positive precent and i hope that all of the persons who come will be positive and those who will speak up. it is happening today will share a positive message everyone should this is a day of peace
a day for us to acknowledge that the world can be changed by one person who can make a difference if he's on the side of righteousness and john lewis was on the side of righteousness. i was the texas congressman al green there speaking with g.w. xena's poll well the day is almost done the conversation continues online join us on twitter a d w news you can follow me bring goth t.v. and we'd like to leave you tonight with the winds words of a true american son the late congressman john lewis and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see then if about 5 people have been discriminated against and it doesn't matter where they are black white latino asian american a native american but it's straight again muslim christian the jews. we all live in the same house the american house.
. tension remains high in the middle east and. israel wants to develop more settlements in the occupied territories. or a pro expansionist like mean hostile tallied increasing jewish presence in the west bank is a whole new mission. demanded drummond promised since israel and the west bank. 90 minutes on d w. i'm not going to think out of the gym i just sometimes down but i stand up in whip it up and greet the germans digs deep into german culture of looking at the stereotype of the quiet but in years in the future the country that i don't blame. yet new to change will take to this drama day oh do you know it's all about who they knew i might show join me to meet the gentleman from the w.
