and if that's too wacky for you how about an opera singer to teach you how to breathe more easily if you're suffering from long covered they don't use london correspondent to get mascotte up with an operatic voice coach. knowing bubbles to help with. susie do basic training. she's developed special greeting exercises patience i'm sure some of them is a bit too hard work at the moment but what it does is it just allows your voice a little bit of a chance to un press. and she says it's thanks to susie that she feels well again and is able to take a few hobbies just a year ago she was suffering from a lung infection and needed oxygen. 3 months song
8:32 pm
i remember feeling so fatigued breathless. i mean literally from my bed to the bathroom i would just get breathless. shiva never dreamed of people rushing as would be the ones to help as. stand to show the heights. in weekly zoom sessions participants love to relax and improve that posture and roast a fool to breathe and just hold that for a moment we think a lot about. breathing down because. if you're breathing you're taking in lots of that and actually tend not to be expanding so just giving people tools to slow things down and i think the minute my mind is really out. there a being part of this is new to me. i could have never imagined coming
8:33 pm
out of that darkness all by myself so it's been a huge support system for me it's like my family now we had i guess you can say a common purpose to get better and more beautiful way to think. out and heal them at the same time the shiba dreams of singing on a real opera stage together with others like. that dream could. i soon as per week restrictions allow english national opera plans to state its very special opera. patients. through singing. run frances is a cardiologist and you cheaper and joins us today and covered special so can blowing bubbles special breathing techniques and things like singing actually help
8:34 pm
with long covert all or even help protect from covered 1000 in the 1st place. i think the honest answer is we don't know for definite because we simply don't have the data specific to kobe but we can compare to other similar kind of her spirit tree viruses and i think there's certainly when considering long coded and you know we have got. things to compare with post viral fatigue syndrome is nothing new but they've been rather neglected. i think in medical research so hopefully this will mean that we allocate a bit more resources to things like that i think yes breathing exercises certainly can have a role in the long type syndrome i'm not sure that it necessarily has a role in the acute setting in that sort of initial setting when you're infected and acutely unwell i think breathing exercises aside from just staying mobile and making sure your lungs are well ventilated i don't think it necessarily has
8:35 pm
a role there but in that chronic condition which obviously is troubling a great deal of people i think it has a role what about something like cold exposure you've looked into that quite a lot and i've been living here in germany for quite some time now and know all about coal exposure. yes i think this is an interesting kind of phenomenon that. maybe. is slightly kind of simplistic in how we looking at it but essentially that we know that exercise has obviously got many proven benefits to physical health and mental health as well and exercise is all about sort of making your body work a little bit harder most of us lately pretty sedentary lives and we're not getting the kind of physical exertion that really audi's evolved to do and so we're quite familiar with the concept of exercising to try and some of those benefits and cold exposure and maybe things like sauna both of which have an evidence base although i
8:36 pm
would just advise a little bit of caution because i think a lot of the claims that you'll find online are a little bit outlandish but i think it's all part of the same phenomenon of trying to stress the body in a controlled way and maybe improve our overall physical fitness so can you give me some of the tips that you give on your own on prepping my immune system achieve better handle a corona virus infection. well the 1st thing i'd say is that if anybody gives. suggestion about how to boost the immune system a bit too easy it's going to be too good to be true because i think the best way to keep your immune system in the optimum shape is by maintaining physical and overall wellbeing and fitness and that's with a healthy diet and regular exercise and a quick fix is on really going to do that so in terms of preventing infection you know again it's nothing too complicated it's all the advice you've already had social distancing ma squaring and those kinds of things no amount of immune system
8:37 pm
preparation is going to prevent an infection but you can prevent the severity by by having a good state so if you do get infected as long as you're in the best possible physical shape beforehand that's going to be your best preparation what about something like that make much of a difference. yes a younger i think actually has quite a considerable evidence base behind it now yogurt of course combines different elements you know we mentioned breathing which is central to it but also a physical exercise as well so in terms of things like the method which brings in a lot of you get practices alongside things like cold exposure so yogurt is a nebulous and off as i think many many benefits it should also be said that you know one size doesn't fit all so you don't have to can try to crowbar yourself into
8:38 pm
a yoga program if other. techniques work better for you but i'm a big fan of the benefits that yoga can offer and we've seen that not only in terms of the physical benefits but i think it particularly in this day and age medications enjoying a resurgence and that offers a lot of additional benefits on top of the of the physical side of things ron i guess one of the big questions is can you actually go as far as saying these types of techniques are viable alternatives alternatives to conventional medicine. you know i'd certainly be very cautious of suggesting anything like that and again i think that would raise alarm bells if people started saying that kind of thing conventional medicine. is is simply a way of talking about interventions that are tested and proven so that is nothing on natural one a natural about the other if things don't work then we don't call them proven
8:39 pm
methods and so i would always regard this as an adjunct but not a replacement however if you. pay attention to all these these preventative methods maybe you can avoid coming into contact with what is deemed this sort of conventional medical system and that's great but if you do get you know heaven forbid and then of course conventional medicine is going to be the thing that's most likely to help. us thank you very much for being on the show today thanks very much for having me. and over to derek williams for the last time this week and if you question about the availability of russia's ha growing karate vaccine. when will the russians public view vaccine be available in europe. since its launch last summer sputnik a has generated a lot of controversy but but some of that has died down since the publication of phase 3 trial data in january indicating the russian made vaccine is effective and
8:40 pm
safe india approved it for emergency use earlier this week becoming the 60th country to do so among them a couple of countries in europe including hungary and serbia slovakia also wanted to begin vaccinating people with sputnik v. as well but has become embroiled in a dispute with russia about the quality of the doses it received most e.u. member states however are waiting for the european medicines agency to weigh in it monitors new medicinal products seeking approval in the block and it makes them before ols to national health authorities the e m a is still looking at the evidence and still carrying out inspections if it does give sputnik the thumbs up orders from vaccine straps european countries will
8:41 pm
follow of course. because of the early controversy gaining wide public acceptance for the russian backed scene in the e.u. would i think prove tough sputnik be is also based on the same platform as the astra zeneca and johnson and johnson vaccines which in the current climate won't make the sell any easier but but with a approval if russian manufacturers can deliver another big f. then i suppose sputnik v. could start going into more arms in europe by the summer if you have a approval is withheld. the most of europe's national health agencies will also probably refuse to greenlighted. lastly lebanese doctor is among those who have developed an un orthodox method for testing people for covert 19 we leave you with the specially trained sniffer dogs that can
8:42 pm
detect the virus in a person in just a few seconds even in very early stages when a p.c.r. test with negative their margin of error is just 5 percent even so the techniques not intended to replace regular testing but has been rolled out in a number of airports like you by helsinki and sydney thanks for watching stay safe and see you again sir.

many of their ancestors came from. queen elizabeth and prince philip on a state visit to germany in 2015 their 5th official trip to germany together once again they were future stickley received some german travel to hundreds of kilometers for a glimpse of the royals. that's the most of my we just wanted to do it i'm very glad we did. they embody certain values tradition pride and the friendship between england and germany perhaps the cleaners and the queen is a special kind of personality when she's in germany you have to be there. the british royal family is very popular in germany royal weddings are broadcast live on german television and millions watch during state visits republicans can briefly become royalists. you. do project a lot on for the entire royal family because they are so present in the media but
8:55 pm
at the same time the royals personally want as little as possible to be known about them and of course many people find the tradition and the glamour fascinating ceremonial aspect that castle's the titles the carriages. but most germans don't want their own monarchy abolished in 1918 back by 2020 poll conducted by in protest the map showed that 85 percent were opposed to having a monic as head of state but germans are nonetheless very interested in the glitz and glamour of royal houses around europe. prince philip staff also touched the hearts of many germans german newspapers had emotional front page coverage the day after he died chancellor angela merkel praised his integrity his dedication to duty and his friendship with germany prince philip had a special connection to germany his parents were german nobility and he spent part of his childhood in southern germany to marry elizabeth he became british and
