i think they've not done the vaccination campaign any favors but safety 1st i think it was important to put patient safety at the center of things so it was the right decision but then you need to publish the information behind it immediately. the european medicines agency is to give its verdict about fears that astra zeneca causes blood clots on thursday but even if the vaccine is given the go ahead for a 2nd time confidence in it has been dented from information that we get is that the value of astra zeneca is greater than the risks but of course having any risk is not a nice feeling for this country i don't know. actually the risk of getting other people taking this my time is worth it or not because it's people are not being very clear about this situation if i had a choice i would take by on tech but if i had no choice it would take astra zeneca . doctor for he me hopes downs will not get the upper hand with the 3rd wave of
12:04 pm
covert infections approaching he says that would be bad news coming. as i can only say from what i hear many people are still willing to take it. germany has a shortage of vaccines a problem that will be much worse if hundreds of thousands of astra zeneca doses stay in the box and we are joined by qatar in a ballet she's a member of germany's social democrats and also vice president of the european parliament this is bali this is just the latest setback in a whole series of setbacks is it time to admit that the use vaccination strategy is failing. well that's it this is not e.u. phenomenon because there are also countries outside the european union who are now abandoning this 1st time that's an issue that's resident for example norway or
12:05 pm
iceland and there are countries within the european union who don't so it is not something that has to do with the european union although i must admit i would have liked this to be to have a european approach to be a get together also to put together your expertise of the different member states i think that could have been an added european value so if we look at if you are an average e.u. citizen. looking at the you how it's done to protect its people and if you then look at the u.k. the u.s. and especially israel isn't there a massive crisis coming in terms of confidence in the u.n. it's organs. well we'll have to see how it turns out in the end i mean there's no doubt that for example israel is doing an excellent job but israel is a country that is kind of constantly under threat so they have they have
12:06 pm
a really good logistics when it comes to you know now acting hands on quickly very good infrastructure and they are giving away the patients data. completely to to to the companies so you have to say ok do you want this to do you not you see the u.s. who are doing very well what they have done better than the you e.u. is to invest into production that i think you can say you has not done sufficiently but on the other hand the u.s. is acting very egoistically they keep everything to themselves if everyone does it certainly should be you should shouldn't be you have done the same to protect its citizens for example not exporting millions and millions and millions of doses outside of the you. this is a very very clear stick approach isn't it i mean if you do that you have certain regions of the world who will not have that nation at all so the e.u.
12:07 pm
has secured many more doses of vaccination and we will meet so so we do have enough it's just not coming quickly enough so what we would have to do is to invest and this is something that you can say you has not done enough but i don't think that this egoistic a cause that we have seen in the beginning or a pandemic i keep all my masters than myself all the interdict is to myself even if you have other reasons well too much more effective or within the european union we need solidarity within the european union and outside. the earlier you said that you admire israel for being so are prompt with it and being able to defend itself against a massive threat the u.s. under a massive threat and now you say we should we shouldn't be going to stick how does that go together. well what we need is do the right things and what we have what we lack of is that seem so it's there's no use it everybody grabbing more for
12:08 pm
himself what we need is is. raising production and this is what the u.s. did better the e.u. invested 3000000000 euros in in raising production capacity use and the u.s. invested more than 800000000 so this is something where you could say yes we could have done better there but then there is also this other aspect that i really want to stress even if it is a bit technical the e.u. does not have confidence in health policy so maybe the member states should get together and see we do not have too much you here we have 2 little so if we had more coordination more competence is concentrated and acting better together and i think this is really what we should covering about a vice president of the e.u. parliament thank you very much for your time in the spring holidays just weeks away european union officials are meeting today to discuss how to get people traveling
12:09 pm
again covered 19 restrictions mean non-essential travel is still limited for most europeans they use looking at introducing a so-called green pass as a digital document showing the travelers current covert vaccination backs a nation status of critics raising ethical concerns saying it could lead to special privileges and discrimination against those who have been vaccinated. call it a certificate a pass or a passport some kind of documentation is in the works for people to show they're safe to travel the european union is calling their proposal a digital green pass vaccination status would be a key piece of information but officials have stressed it wouldn't be the only it's not the bus fault it's a real suck to get laid you said but it's not only about vaccination it's about the recovery for the people who have had the sickness direction ation all the tests to avoid any discrimination between different citizens covered 1000 vaccination is not
12:10 pm
required in the e.u. critics worry that a so-called green pass could become a slippery slope to a vaccine passport thus discriminating against the unvaccinated data protection is also a concern the world health organization is against making vaccination a travel requirement and so is the i.c.a.o. the united nations aviation body tourism dependent e.u. members such as greece cyprus spain and portugal are eager to throw open their doors to travelers from places where vaccination is going quickly like the united kingdom and israel negative tests or proof of covert 1000 anti-bodies are also acceptable to many in the travel industry who. news today hundreds of thousands of jobs in austria depend on getting to travel normally again for business and vacation. think of it as mentioned you know. that's why i'm fighting to
12:11 pm
make this happen as soon as possible the green pass is one possibility for reopening borders reducing border controls and getting our economy going again this . e.u. officials say testing and quarantine will remain central to safe travel a little more than 10 percent of the blocks 448000000 people have received at least one shot of an approved in 1000 vaccine meaning herd immunity is likely farther away than the summer travel season. my colleague marina strauss is standing by in brussels where the u. commission is about to present plans for e.u. health says that if it's not me that what do we know so far. what i know is that possible if you watch it if it could could coupler meant this little book i brought mine here and it proves that i'm vaccinated against many things not to covert 19 so
12:12 pm
far but as you can see it's paper it's not digital so it's not comparable l e u y it and that's words that you commission wants to tench with that this possible new digital certificate that you once to make it easier for people to travel across borders again because we know freedom of movement is essential for the e.u. idea of idea of the european union and the idea is we heard it already but i repeat that because it's important the is that this certificate will prove if somebody is vaccinated it will prove if somebody has recovered from covert 19 or if somebody has a negative test result and what is different from like in comparison to other measures we've seen taken by that you commission so far is that it is actually a lot proposal because the e.u. commission has realized it does not account go far enough with recommendations because then you states just say ok that's nice it was but would still go our way
12:13 pm
for example when it comes to a common approach to shoot to go to border closures so on and the member states agree and what's the hold up what is still being debated. countries that are relying heavily on tourism for example agrees cyprus can't wait for such an e.u. why is it if it has to be to be put in place but other countries say it's not to do yet what kind of rights will be attached to such a statistic as critics fear that introducing it could be discriminatory against the unvaccinated and responsible commissioner toward the german media this morning he warns this it if a kid should be introduced by june 1st that means comes summer comes to certificate but that's really optimistic because not only e.u. countries have to create a common approach but also that your parliament and usually that takes
12:14 pm

minority and they say they face persecution in pakistan. every time an osama does the odd time here in leipsic it feels like a small victory in pakistan the call for prayer would land him in jail ahmed and his family are members of the ahmadiyya community and islamic minority which faces persecution back home 2 years ago they fled to germany. we live in freedom since we came we've been able to wear whatever clothes we want and when we want to veil ourselves no one tries to harm us my husband goes to the mosque and prays there and we don't have to ask ourselves whether he will come home or whether someone will come to the mosque and hurt us. the family only has tolerated immigration status here which means they have few rights and it anytime can be arrested and deported back to a life in fear they have heard that

a mass deportation is due to take place soon. sania it is not easy to leave your country and now that we have done this that we are here we're being told that we can't stay so where do we go. to use believe the movements founder was the messiah they are considered heretics in pakistan there persecution is well documented muhammad's shows a school books which tell children to fight the infidels signs at the shop entrances that prohibit entry for mahdi's photos from attacks on the mosques still unlike the u.k. in the us germany considers pakistan a safe country of origin malique says that the government has stepped up deportations. i believe that there is a lack of knowledge or a political will. but unfortunately this is to the detriment of the many persecuted people who live here and who are now being deported in large numbers or are still

12:19 pm
family over could wake up in their own beds say has just landed a few hours. but what a family it's just another round of weights in. the states it's bases in germany is still only tolerated it means they don't have this item here and they can get the cord and tie and that's the situation that many of these faces year around 550. from your research how likely is it that the ahmadi or deportees or those from other minority religions will experience serious home upon their return to pakistan. only when you research the topic to the front it doesn't take to it so long to realize it and it's like being persecuted in pakistan according to amnesty 'd international they say and it's part of this and franchise and targets of killing cyber malton on hate speech and the u.n.h.c.r.
12:20 pm
stands as well that pakistan is not safe well it's my distant turn. so it's not only what they say it's also been documented by international organizations that was not his face their situation upon return no i've witnessed so what i've heard from the family. is that many of their family members are actually inches into the new ground and that's basically being the court of fact by its line makes you very visible in the community it's in the spotlight here the while in the village that was was a drugs are coming back and that's for says or what they say here they don't want to be in the spotlight they wants to see this city they've won no one to know that he's what do you see any signs of germany my to change and stomp on this issue. it's this article to say there's definitely been an outcry not all of these this is
12:21 pm
the british who had to go though that took place this morning the pipes and sonic christian was due to be on the plane and asked if there was a public outcry it was noted by the link that the that's true in party and saxony it was actually released yesterday. but then it's difficult to see how germany or when germany would change that stance if in the vast amount of information about persecution that is available given the stance of the u.n.h.c.r. that i just mentioned living the way that the country is not treating of my views that means or other countries actually not deporting them back to fight or. in a mess and so forth but germany is still doing that so the only. solution that's left for the unity they've sent this to place public awareness about their persecution and all but. did i hear about to lose a family too often than thank you ladies. starting today right
