ready to get. places in europe for smashing records. stick. to ensure. it's a treasure map. trotters discover some of europe's record sites. also in book form. the coronavirus knows no borders similarly there's one group of people that manages to target more migrants. there at a higher risk of acquiring and dying from covert 19. dantes patchy and the reasons are diverse. today we cut through their prejudices and racism to see what's behind
the trend. i've been fizzling welcome to the show in a moment we'll talk to a public health scientist about the dangers for migrants aside from what the state can do is also a lot we can achieve at a community level as our reporters found out. as a so-called neighborhood mother mona ramadan helps recent immigrant women and their families start a new life in germany for many a difficult transition made even harder by the coronavirus pandemic the last. people i really worn out and on top of that you have to overcrowded housing conditions at the emergency shelter where i help out each family lives in one room together they just need some space and the beginning of a pandemic you couldn't even leave the house playgrounds be a closed that was a disaster. overcrowded housing
conditions can lead to a higher risk of getting infected with the coronavirus today mona ramadan meets dia us 80 was lived in the emergency shelter since her arrival from syria with the help of the neighborhood mothers she recently found an apartment for her family. of course there were also many families that were in fact we then helped them to find out where they can go. because dia is a single mother she doesn't have a job yet once she has improved her german she wants to start an apprenticeship neighborhood mother ramadan is helping her. now. but. a recent german study has shown that unemployed people have an 84 percent higher risk of being hospitalized for cope at 19 but similar data for immigrants is lacking. skipped. i think it. will studies for example from the u.k. in the us that show that there is
a relation between migration and the risk of infection as well as severe cases. that has little to do with the fact that they are migrants but with the kind of high risk jobs migrants just reportedly end up doing your voice you've got you can get. jobs such as delivering packages or cutting hair which put workers often immigrants at risk of infection but data connecting health and socio economic status is limited in germany and does this extremist is that's extremely important because this way we can identify groups of people that have a higher risk and if we also understand why that's the case we can specifically do something to reduce the risk of these even finding out we hadn't. while more in-depth data could improve germany support structure for migrants for now neighborhood mothers like mona are the best lifeline they have. public health
scientist and physician rosé yon joins us from the german city of mannheim so should governments be focusing more on migrants in the fight against covert. the short answer to that would be yes absolutely. migrants are at a higher risk of acquiring and the dying from commitment you know over represented michael and i think it's those as well that even though it has to be i have to keep in mind that the situation isn't great so there is if you with regard to data have made ability and compare ability of they don't as well but overall we can definitely say that migrants are overrepresented. rose i've heard that as well for people who work in hospitals saying that cova boards full of people with migration backgrounds i'm a migrant too. should both already be targeting me. i
think i would like to make 2 points with regard to that question and 1st of all. the parts about 19 wards being. proportionately. so patients with the migration background we don't know. what doctors are experiencing and saying that can lead there is some some that's valid but is the right with regards to actual scientific valid and comparable data. yes migrants are more likely to get congress but with the rest of hospitalization actually the picture is inconsistent there are some studies that have shown that migrants are most likely to be admitted to hospital for coke over 19 but they're also studies that show the opposite so with regard to that the evidence is an inconsistent nonetheless the fact that across studies. re do you find
that migrants are overrepresented among coaches that team cases for example and we didn't they make out 32 percent of 19 cases but only 90 percent of the overall population so there's data that points to that. so yes what about hyper choice. i mean as a systematic a structural level we definitely need to improve data available that he would need to be able to more specifically say who is at a higher risk because my guys are very large group and that sometimes groups that have been identified as being particularly at a particularly high risk point can tell us some. yeah course. one group for example undocumented migrants that they have a hard time accessing health care and there's also migrant labor migrants because
they're unlikely to work in precarious jobs health care workers also for example seasonal every cultural workers there has has been a major outbreak for example here in a factory that was processing meat because labor conditions as well as for example being housed in like labor compounds all that kind of trees the risk of being infected with comaneci and of course the sounds you can use in refugee if you're also living in reception centers where infection the risk of infection can be high there's overcrowding there may be an issue with accessing health care. so it's important to look at those differences and then find strategies that target those groups that are particularly high risk by making sure they couldn't make nation efforts for example by making sure that there is appropriate health information available. those are just examples but there's
a lot that can be done i guess targeting the right micro group isn't always the easiest but i bet a refugee cap how do you go about that it's easy identifying the people but there are huge amounts of people living in really crappy quarters and we've looked at that in the recent revenue media reports and germany to also quantify how high is the risk within the offenders and we found it to be a 13 percent misc of the buyer spreading out instruction of the 1st case and we found that in 75 percent of those outbreaks a collective pointing out the whole study was implemented but this specific measure has actually increased significantly increased the risk of transmission of the virus in the facility so instead we recommend to. have more space available to households reduce the number of individuals living in it so that we make sure that sanitary facilities are not shared and make sure that health information is
available appropriate help is make if and then which is available and include reception centers in vaccination effort. on thanks very much for being on the show today you're very welcome thank you very much for having me. ever further reading the reviews that we refer to their size kovi to among migrants and forcibly displaced populations and clinical outcomes and risk factors for 1000 among migrant populations in high income countries. time for derek williams and of you a question about new variants and you vaccine it's. do new variants mean we'll have to create new vaccines and how long could that process take. in the news you hear over and over again that we are at a critical juncture in the pandemic and the global vaccine campaign is often portrayed as a race against new sars tobie 2 variants that could potentially prove resistance
to our current battery of vaccines variants that are more contagious or more deadly are frightening of course but as long as vaccines continue to protect us against them the race remains a question of logistics it's all about getting as many people immunized as fast as possible but another big looming concern that could change that is corona virus variants that might develop what are called in muniz state mutations that would allow them to evade even an immune system primed by vaccines to fight off an infection fortunately this is a situation that health authorities are familiar with since for example they have to update flu vaccines regularly because influenza viruses mutate quickly a lot faster than coronaviruses do so so experts designing the vaccines approved
for emergency use more aware of the danger and many modern vaccines are are relatively easy to update especially the messenger r.n.a. vaccines. trials with booster shot versions of them that target specific worrisome source code between variants are already going on and approvals are certain to be fast tracked if if red flags start popping up like like if significant numbers of people who were fully vaccinated against covert 19 suddenly began showing up in hospitals with severe cases long term the experts say future covert shots might actually combine multiple vaccines that protect against a range of variance just like today's flu shots often do. lastly the idea of sniffing out cove it is really catching on especially at
airports meet diamond and german shepherd in training to take the virus and sophie a labrador retriever in this exercise trying to find the one item of belongs to an infected person the training mare is that for drug sniffing or search and rescue dogs diamond and sophia said to stop work soon at the airport of el salvador similar programs are in the works in ecuador and chile. thanks for watching stay safe and see you again 6. can you hear me now oh yes we can you can have the last 2 years gentlemen so it's now we bring you and i'm going to a man called and you've never had to have surprise yourself with what is possible who is magical really what moved back and want. to see people full time on the way

and after 3 years of renovations the house of british mexican surrealist artist leonora carrington has now opened a museum. well it's not every day that an investigative journalist sees his or her story made into a feature film and even less likely the film will be picked up by netflix for international distribution but that's what happened with ono to hey a nigerian crime drama that not only gets under your skin but could have quite an impact on the future and perception of african cinema. shall not be every seen. until. they tell you that i was a very good actress a screw up. slow bus you know that this is not the real you are who are on. the court of law today feels like a crime writers work of fiction the young journalist goes undercover to expose the
sordid world 6 work and human trafficking in an injury and city. it is now my story but the now famous netflix film was very much based on the facts and experiences of real life journalists. it's a reward of exploitation. i mean social economic it was psychological exploitation of women i had to because. i had to become a sex worker. and mingle man with the sex walk as. city of your lost a friend who she says died after being trafficked to italy. in 2013 obviously set out to see how young women alluding to the trade she went undercover as a street walker in lagos and then for 7 months. i was able to follow
every day lives. and 7 years down the line i still try as much as possible. trafficking is $150000000000.00 global industry young nigerian woman a promise passage to europe but they are at the mercy of the traffickers in country rape sexual exploitation and forced labor. some of this lady is one case from local. and mean they got books so i decided to also tries it's with them into the next level in reality i wasn't a sex worker but in the army i was a sex worker i did what they did the only thing. i. was too happy to wiley because the real cost of. the
jury has a high number of traffic victims overseas especially in europe to chemist john believes that since its release in october 29 team has shone a light on notorious criminal trafficking networks. the feel has changed people's perspective about trafficking but what it has done in nigeria it has been able to bring forth the conversation around trafficking and a lot of people like i remember when it came out it was trending for a long time on a general social media we're just. created. after the field. full of unity the memories of our deal still haunt her. as every day trying to block out. the memories of the young women i came across even before the final journey. to searching for the woman she met on the street in
hopes to talk this through. and joining me on the line now from boston today is our film experts scott roxboro hi scott a very tough film about a tough subject and it generated a lot of buzz on social media as we just heard what kind of impact do you think this can have in terms of raising awareness to the problem of sex trafficking. i think you could really have a quite significant impact particularly in nigeria where it really exploded on social media i mean this isn't necessarily obviously not a new topic but also for film i mean just a couple of years ago netflix released a film joy which was also a story of a nigerian woman whose sex trafficked to europe but that that was made by an austrian and while it meets an impact here in europe and caused some waves it didn't really imply that packed the discussion back in nigeria with this new film maybe because it is told from
a nigerian perspective from an african perspective maybe it could have some real world impact. ok so we know of course nigeria's very very well known for its booming entertainment film industry that's known as nollywood but this really doesn't fit that mold does it. you know this definitely isn't a nollywood film i mean nollywood like like hollywood like bollywood basically is mainstream entertainment and the industry there tends to avoid controversial subjects and this film looks really unflinchingly at a subject that many nigeria that many around the world would prefer not to see now we've seen really sort of socially conscious impactful movies out of africa for quite some time but there's never really been an industry to support the making of these movies in till now that's now it's starting to change ok that's very interesting now you know today does seem to be part of a broader trend whereby the big streaming services like netflix are featuring more african stories by african creatives do you think we can expect to see more of off
this type of film in the future. oh definitely yeah that's definitely does look that's what coming i mean netflix is the pioneer here they've made a lot of these type of movies just recently from the british nigerian director and actor she would call the geo for the boy who harnessed the wind a phenomenal film and the interesting thing about this is netflix now the other team is are looking at africa as a market and they're realizing that if you want to get african an african audience to watch your streaming service you have to give them african stories and if the best people to tell african stories are not well meaning europeans or americans but africans themselves with for the 1st time african directors and have the money and the platforms to really reach a worldwide audience. well that's absolutely great news and we'll keep an eye on those developments and thanks for bringing us those background insights we'll talk again soon scott roxboro involved. all the documentary do not split follows pro-democracy protests in hong kong from the summer of 2019 until
the new national security law came into effect a year later it's been nominated for an oscar for best short documentary and following the nomination hong kong broadcaster t.v. be an announced that it would not air this year's academy awards for the 1st time in over 50 years well norwegian filmmaker under his hama believes that decision was politically motivated. democracy can say that if. we expect. anything to react to our documentary we are not surprised that they are not. we have been nominated. so we expected them to take action. authorities have set rights and freedoms in
hong kong remain intact but more than 10000 people have been arrested in relation to the protests many activists including us based josue who appears in the documentary have fled to the city to continue that advocacy. i mean obviously you know being nominated for us to be a very encouraging and motivating news for the people of hong kong who are still trying so hard to sustain a movement the hope is that the us cars can still be viewed online and hung. there for. and that is another story we will be sure to keep tabs on well she may not be a household name for everyone but the late leonora carrington was one of the last surviving members of the surrealist movement back from the 1930 s. british mexican painter and sculptor spent most of her adult life in mexico city she absolutely fell in love with mexico and there her house of nearly 60 years has
just been transformed into a museum. do you know a character in space know her magical paintings and sculptures. carrington was born in 1970 into our family in england rejected her upper class life in favor of becoming an artist she ran away to mexico and it's here her home of 16 in mexico city it's now being opened up as a museum. that is. going to have getting to know the book she writes the objects that accompany ted the things she thrives on this was the home of leonora and her family for more than 60 years and that meant filling it up with a bundle of things any family or do. was an asset. so nothing.
like illinois particular case i believe that will allow us to know or have a complete idea of who she was what she thrived on in order to create the entire universe of leonora everything she created that. they're not our goal ok echo cheering her long life carrington produced an extensive body of work that celebrations across mexico. only in order carrington. have fantastical not explored. since alchemy and the occult. a lifelong interest for carrington. the new studio house museum which holds some 8600 catalog objects and more than 45 of carrington sculptures and not only to show how the su really died today.
but it also helps to answer questions about what's. fueled countenance not test. something she would never have personally revealed in life carrington refused to be joining to discussions about the meaning of her work. found a collection of texts we found underlying phrases or textbooks we found drafts of. all these of findings the definitely for the right person for research is will be useful to explain many things with regards to who leonora canton really was and when she got her inspiration from yahoo groups have. fun accountants earliest and strongest influences came from her turbulent love affair with german sunni list next and sed who against the beliefs of the time greatly encouraged the young carrington in her work it was her son pablo vice his 2nd child to her 2nd husband
who convinced her to turn their home into museum after her death. in order to carrington died in 2011 at the age of 94 the story of her extraordinary life as one of the world's leading sunni realist artists consume be experienced she lived. all that is all for this time on arts and culture in the meantime there's more on the web site at w dot com slash culture and until we meet again all the best for lent. this is a tragic hour and finally being upset by the fans and. migrant workers not only do they use their wages to support their feel it. also supporting the local economy of their home country. new ideas to help ensure that their families
