rise in covert 1000 cases here in germany is leaving all of us here. very concerned . after we had managed to keep the number of cases stable for several weeks until we have again seen a significant rise in cases for several days or weeks. the government warns that didn't you call week 1000 clusters must be contained to prevent a 2nd wave. if now in the summer through our leisure travel behavior we cause a rise in the rate of infections overall infections then it will become all the harder to keep the situation under control this autumn. so far germany's health system has not been overstretched by the way. over the last 6 months or done 200000 people in germany were confirmed to have coronavirus and more done 9000 lost their lives. paul showed germans continue to support the cautious approach of
4:03 pm
government and i believe that the government has controlled the crisis well. compared to other countries germany has managed. in face of new outbreaks germany has announced it will introduce mandatory test for travelers returning from high risk countries. for more on this i'm joined already correspondent brady kid you are in bavaria in the town of mumming that is in focus because we've seen a massive. outbreak at a farm over there just looking at the way have reacted to try and control this outbreak does it give us some idea of how germany would respond to a possible 2nd wave. it certainly does and an indicator of that is exactly what you can see right behind me right now and this is
4:04 pm
a test center for locals here in the town of manning where just over 3000 people can now be tested for free after the outbreak which you mentioned at a local farm and it just took a matter of hours yesterday for this tent to be erected and today just across town a 2nd testing center was also set up so it seems that what we will see if there is indeed a 2nd wave of covert 19 here in germany is a very localized response and one concern that many people who are coming here to be tested it's a voice to me was the idea of a quarantine many people being very matter of fact about what the coming days and even coming weeks might bring here manning depending on how many more positive cases a confirmed here in this tiny bavarian town but it seems that quarantining and a lockdown even for an entire small district is the last thing that locals want to specially in the heat which i'm sure you can get
4:05 pm
a feel for right now absolutely germany wants to also impose barters testing on travelers who come from high risk areas can you give us some details of how this will actually work in practice particularly on border crossings not. well we could see an indication of how that might work in the coming days the bavarian said the local government cabinet here in bavaria announced today that from orcus 7th there will be voluntary tax senses assessed on 3 border crossings between the various and austria so that will give us some insight as to how that might work but already in the meantime the voluntary tests available at several a large across germany and also at some central train stations as well but the next step as you say would be to make some of these tests mandatory specially for people returning from high risk areas but of course there are
4:06 pm
a lot of the cool and legal questions to be asked 1st and that is something that the german health ministry is looking into but certainly something that we could see become a reality in the next couple of weeks did have a correspondent kate brady in the big things on in the maddening vertigo thank you so much. for this year to germany are digging up a garden in the investigation into the disappearance of madeleine mccann they're searching a plot of land near the city of homs which has been linked to a man who german authorities the suspect was involved in what abduction and the british toddler was 3 years old when she vanished on a family holiday and. 13 years ago the case has never been solved despite attracting global attention. almost spyro is following this for us tell us what you have for us. so this was 1st reported by a local newspaper in the city of hanover and then. to german media by local prosecutors there are certain elements that they did reveal so for example that
4:07 pm
that is taking place that there's an excavator that's also being used that police will continue digging that in other words that it's not finalized what is still not known from this particular search is why exactly they are in this month although it has been reported that the suspect spend some time in hanover starting in 2007 so those are key questions that still remain when it comes to the suspect the suspect is in prison in the city of here in northern germany for drug related offenses and he was actually revealed to be the prime suspect of this madeleine mccann case a few weeks ago especially after a german television program that deals with real crime investigations since then obviously this case has attracted particular attention not only in the english speaking world where it already attracts a lot of attention but also here in germany as well didn't lose time sparrow thank you very much for that 9 months after a right wing extremist

4:16 pm
a disease which vaccines under treatment and now available. globally. b. and c. after 325000000 people but only one in 10 of those people have been tested. and only one in point 5 received appropriate treatment. the world health organization wants to eliminate hepatitis by 2030 but some experts are now asking whether the covered 19 pandemic could derail that goal. welcome to you covered $900.00 special here on the news i want to get jones in the end good to have you with us sars cove too isn't our only enemy amid the coronavirus pandemic viral hepatitis continues to claim thousands of lives every day worth remembering what we're up against. their own main strains of the hepatitis virus referred to as types a. d and. according to the world health
4:17 pm
organization millions of sufferers unaware of the disease but slowly creeps up on them with an inflammation of the liver unbeknown to them all habitat is pathogens except for c. are preventable by a vaccine. the lack of testing also means many cases are discovered too late. and that for a disease that spreads easily and through poor food hygiene dirty water and lack of sanitation. the rest. are all spread via blood semen and other bodily fluids. for more i'm joined by all of them care the spokesman of the german association off research based pharmaceutical companies good to have you with us please tell me how is the fight against covert 19 affecting the fight against hepatitis.
4:18 pm
it's affected in 2 ways really one is that the vaccination campaigns get interrupted in quite a number of countries because. the health care system is so occupied with dealing with covert 19. the all the problem is that patients are afraid to go to the doctor because they are afraid to contract covert 19 in the waiting room really and so if they suspect that they may have got infected. some kind of appetite is they don't seek diagnosis and don't think treatment of course that is a phenomenon that we see with with a lot of illnesses heart attacks and so forth. is also known as the silent epidemic what actually do we need to know about it how how does
4:19 pm
it differ from code 19. well have a tie does this actually not one does the at least 5 different diseases they all calls by viruses to have a different holes so. dangerous one so really the most dangerous ones b. c. and d. and. these appetite is especially b. and c. and i can be really silent as you are in fact it. for you if without noticing you have no symptoms you'll feel well a ripping fine and only after year of when the viruses really. how much harm to your liver you'll start to feel sometimes that's why it's called fila right and of course there is no vaccine against hepatitis c. yet but there are certain drugs to treat patients as well talk about that in
4:20 pm
a moment don't go anywhere but let's just have a quick look at where we stand with the treatment for hepatitis c. and how this could perhaps also help 9000 patients. around one percent of the world's population 71000000 people have hepatitis c. . the virus is transmitted through infected blood for example from shared syringes toothbrushes razors and through unprotected sex. unsterilized equipment in touch to studios is also a risk that causes $3.00 to $4000000.00 new infections every year. the virus attacks the liver and causes an infection which can have serious complications such as liver cancer also ross says there is no vaccine but there are medicines to treat the infection for decades researchers have given intense study
4:21 pm
to the hepatitis c. virus that could help in the search for medicine to fight cough it 19. researchers at the university of mines in germany a fed reams of data into the super computer the computer simulates the effects of $42000.00 substances tested in hepatitis research against the corona virus the result for hepatitis medications contain active ingredients which could hinder application of the. rhona virus that discovery could accelerate the time to develop and other drug. of the german association of research based pharmaceutical companies i.d.d. we find a therapy that helps those hepatitis c. encoded 9000 patients but what are the chances well it would be absolutely fantastic if one of those trucks what do you really suited to treat covert 19
4:22 pm
because we know them well we know about the side effects are minimal so these are the kinds of math that you really want to have it just takes time the supercomputers right at the beginning then of calls you have to verify those results in cultures for example because they're out of the. logical system is not a level of complexity above a computer and if it turns out that you can use them in clinical trials so at the moment. from dramas actually different drugs. which contain antibodies which have been copied from antibodies found in the blood of x. patients x.
4:23 pm
covert 9000 patients so they seem to have the best chances right now in order to. cure well 900 patients is that one of the best shots that we're having right now. it's suddenly one of the best shots and it's the approach which you can pursue fairly quickly we know how to handle and it all days we know how to produce them mass produce them with a technology. and so if this turns out to be a good approach we can have a mass production of them and handling in the clinics quite quickly but these are just some of the many many approaches we have we have stopped counting something $200.00 plus madsen's actually tests the suitability
4:24 pm
against covert 19 among them some hepatitis mithun's right well that sounds promising and hopefully very soon we're lucky and find the right therapy for all those diseases from the german pharmaceutical industries association thank you so much for your time oh you're welcome thank you. well then how are animals fairing in the pandemic that depends of course on where they live and how they kept tipping gwyn's young ones of the brookfield zoo in chicago was visibly enjoying being prompted death perhaps just about a month ago and this is their thriving and growing fast brookfield susa indoor animal buildings of course have been temporarily closed to guests due to code 19. and the reason we show you this well we thought we share those pictures with you because many of you keep asking about animals and 19 in fact that is the question that. what are
4:25 pm
the optics on infection and pat. this is a question i answered in march based on a pre-print study that has since been peer reviewed and published but because it's asked over and over i guess it's time for a general reminder the authors found that of the common pets challenge with the buyer as ferrets could be infected but weren't very contagious cats appeared most at risk of both developing disease and passing it along to other cats dogs on the other hand didn't appear to be very susceptible but other animals might contribute to outbreaks a lot of mink have been called on fur farms and denmark spain and the netherlands in the last few months animal welfare groups say well over a 1000000 after the discovery that they could contract and pass on the disease not
4:26 pm
only to other meaning but also very likely to pets like like cats the fear is that fur farms could act as a reservoir for the virus and thereby contribute to future outbreaks in general though current thinking is that the chance of transmission from pets or other animals to people that it's quite low the infected maine cold on the fur farms in europe probably contract it originally from the humans who work there. the coronavirus pandemic has also changed the lives of millions of goats sheep and camels normally they now get sold at major markets ahead of. the festival of sacrifice this year fee is about catching the virus and keeping customers away and faced with deserted markets livestock breeders and traders attend to websites absence ocean media to showcase their animals festival of sacrifice is one of 2
