the laser industries schools will be shut for 3 weeks masks at trans stops asked officials conceded they may have relaxed route too quickly in the summer. where. i wasn't strong enough in the summer and i didn't insist on measures to protect us from the 2nd wave. meanwhile in france business owners in the capital threw a cocktail party protest to draw attention to their plight. barger in the middle of a 2 week closure that officials hope which stem the rising number of infections it hasn't and the public is bracing for new restrictions to be announced. your government needs to put in place strong and powerful measures in line with the economic tragedy that we're facing here and across france. across europe growing infection rates for measures and the inevitable health and

economic hardship to follow as they head for which there are no easy fixes. well germany is a coronavirus caseload is also increasing rapidly 5000 new coronavirus cases have been recorded in a single day the highest number seen here since april but with growing confusion over different sets of rules across the country 16 states german chancellor angela merkel is meeting state leaders to find a more effective approach meanwhile her health minister has his own message for the public. germany's health minister on getting a flu shot setting an example as he called on the public to get vaccinated as called in 1000 cases right in the country the flu season is also beginning sponsored it's important to keep the flu so people say out of hospitals and the german health system isn't overwhelmed. a lot of people fill it with coven 19 and on top of that
5:05 pm
a lot of people get the flu especially since they are 2 respiratory diseases with similar symptoms then our health care system can reach its limits. the incidence of new coronavirus cases in germany keeps rising and every day new cities join the list of risk areas. some areas in germany have surpassed the key threshold of 50 infections per 100000 inhabitants over the last 7 days including major cities such as frankfurt berlin munich and cologne as infections climb germany is trying to figure out how to deal with the new upsurge one problem the solutions differ all over the country in berlin for example there are no limitations for travellers from inner german risk areas staying in hotels there is also no obligation to wear masks on the streets.
5:06 pm
another city another set of rules in munich travelers from designated risk areas can only stay at a hotel if they show a recent negative covert test and masks are mandatory in some outdoor areas of the city the different rules are making it hard for germans to understand what they can and cannot do in essence no one can really remember this seem to be pointless. for a long period of time because more and more cities are going beyond which is. social issues and use here so the policy becomes redundant in a couple of weeks anyway. but the end of that chaos might be near the leaders of germany's 16 federal states are meeting with chancellor angela merkel in berlin for the 1st non virtual meeting in months some state premiers have already announced they will cling to the accommodation ban well others want to see it dropped the
5:07 pm
question is will the chancellor's personal and in person or 30 be enough to unify the positions. let's take a look at this we have professor to be escorted he's an epidemiologist at a hospital he is also director of balance of public health institute welcome to d w what would you like to hear come out of this meeting between i'm going to macro. germany's state leaders. you know i think we're all hoping for a base rule of the measures so it's not as confusing as just stated in the report it's very difficult right now to really know what you have to do in your own city or if you travel or if you have to travel to another city if that's even still possible so i think in terms of the communication it will be very helpful to have a more unified measure and is there a danger given the there has to be an accommodation for 16 different leaders is there a danger but they will level down rather than up there's always of
5:08 pm
course a reason for discussion and the pandemic has affected regions differently so it makes total sense that some regions have different opinions than other regions and say it's a german system but i hope that they will find a solution and they see that the increasing number of cases are an important turning point right now where everyone has to act to act jointly. the interest increasing number of cases is of itself quite interesting we're seeing 5000 new infections registered over one day an increase of more than a 1000 compared to previous days what do you think is driving this increase well this increase was expected we have the flu season we have to cold weather coming in so to corona cases are rising as expected actually not as high as i personally would have expected it early on and still not in the numbers that we see in other
5:09 pm
countries that unfortunately have much higher number but we see this trend we see an increasing number and we have to act now to ease lowered infection rate and to keep things open schools restaurants other businesses as long as possible that would be very important you say you would expect this because this is the flu season. why does that matter. with 2 diseases the 2 conditions becoming conflated. well the virus spread in the color season more likely and we know it is from for many many data collected over many years and so it's not really a surprise to corona infections also increase now and of course we're doing a lot of testing we don't lot of tracing but nevertheless this was expected and i hope everyone understands that the pandemic is always decided on the population level and we all can help to reduce the number of infections by keeping a distance wearing a mask and following the hygiene measures that we that we have we're seeing this
5:10 pm
rise in infection around the world this is clearly not just a german problem when you look around the world where if you look and say we need to be more like van. is no i don't think you can you can make comparisons to other countries setting is so different to health care systems are different the way people test or countries are testing is very different so i think we should not look reffed a left or right we should focus on what we can do how our health care system is doing and other countries should do the same thing. so there's lots of talk about a 2nd wave of infection is that is that the right way to look at it or is this just the way that these diseases spread this is just the 1st what doing it doing what diseases do well again we would have expected an increase in the fall in the winter so some people call this a 2nd wave so this is actually expected and it will also hopefully go down very
5:11 pm
soon and it's also expected they get better in the spring time or hopefully we have a vaccination soon that the numbers of infections go down again so i don't think there's something there's something very special about about the corona virus and this increase was expected to talk to you thank you for joining us professor professor to be a squirt. situation in the u.k. is also becoming worse and northern ireland's regional government is re imposing a tough lock down restrictions as infections skyrocket there are britain's prime minister barak's johnson's under pressure to go further than the newly agreed 3 tier system of regional restrictions for england critics are calling for a u.k. wide lockdown this week the government scientific advisory committee came out in favor of a 2 week lock down mr johnson who is out he said that would be
5:12 pm
a disaster for the country the u.k. has suffered europe's worst pandemic death toll more than $43000.00. corresponded to get mass is in london welcome burkett so the prime minister has been in parliament defending these latest pandemic control figures for england how about go . we've seen a dramatic change in tact from the opposition so far the opposition has more or less supportive what the prime minister was planning in terms of lockdowns so all the way through the law the hard lock down early in the year the opposition that was supportive of that masha and also when. then was the you know the it was less hard and people were allowed to do go about their business in a more normal way however now we saw that the leader of the labor position is really accusing the government of not following the science anymore because you've
5:13 pm
explained it expert committee that's advising the government on coronado has actually argue that something more is needed so that these measures that the prime minister has just recently announced which is 3 tier system so 3 different sorts of measures in the regions is not enough and they say it's how could break is needed another national locked down possibly not very long but that this is needed and what it would do to just stop the virus spreading from now and save the opposition is criticising the prime minister of not going far enough so that's the situation in england in northern ireland very few employers imposed europe's strictest 2nd wave lockdown it does seem inevitable that the rest of the country will follow. well know that island is one of the hot spots in the u.k. where you've seen a dramatic rise and cases recently however there are other hot spots for example in
5:14 pm
the north of england it's been reported that in the novel and that some hospitals are already overwhelmed and that they had to stop elective procedure as sort of normal procedures non-code related and this is something that doctors also in other parts of england are fearing that one doctor said he's hearing that a tsunami of cases is going to come and that it will overwhelm the health system so this is the reason that northern ireland has gone for something much more streaks and scientists are saying you have to do this is pressure from government advising scientists to say do this for the whole country at least for a limited period of couple of time in order to avert more damage later on in the year and then you carry is about to suffer a sort of double economic show with the coronavirus finally leaving the european union how economic damage or are these pandemic control measures likely to be.
5:15 pm
if you take for example the automotive industry they have already just from corona suffered so much they've seen more than 10000 of jobs being lost if you also take the automotive suppliers say already quite devastating they say that if also breaks it with no deal with no trade agreement with the e.u. if that would follow at the end of the year and with all the disruption that will and tail fall the supply change that could more or less destroy this particular manufacturing industry and we have this c.b.i. the biggest business organization really warning that whole regions could more or less be wiped out so it is something that business leaders are really looking at and they're hoping that at least it will be some sort of trade deal with the use of the destruction by bricks of this minimized birgitte mass in london thank you so much. well turning now to some of the other stories making news around the world
