africa, south africa, both the energy initiative green came forth. john environmentally friendly, sorta generate clean energy from forward. and hydro power is always energy. africa in 60 minutes on the w. o. o keeping schools sink from covered 19 vaccines, one defense. but most kids are still waiting for the job. in the meantime, testing is critical. children often don't develop of the cases of the corona virus, but they can spread it, putting teachers and families at risk engine tests so far made the grade. but is
8:31 pm
there a better way to stop the spread of the disease and benches all and welcome to the show. some german schools are now using the lowly pop test. sounds like fun. not all pupils so enthusiastic about it, but better than a long swab up the nose. database, right? are you ready in 30 seconds? go then it's been loaded. so the 2nd, the children that this element 3 school in cologne. which was the swabs. then go to a lab where they are tested for comparative you method names to make testing easier for young children. and it's quite good. it's definitely better than i know. last test. a shindig elkins park. i find this quite handy because afterwards i feel
8:32 pm
safe about whether or not i have corona danny over the smokers house. but the taste is disgusting. i always tried to think of lollipops and after was tasty still doesn't leave my mouth from the rooms that caps takes the cotton swabs to the lab, logistical challenge. because another 500 schools, i'm bringing their test here in the lab, the swamps that tested using what's known as the pooling method. this means all cotton swabs from one class evaluated together in one test. this is because the lonely test is expensive to save, pays around 50 euros analysis each month. if you take 20 swaps are presenting 20 students and divide them by 50 euro's then you get a good price. additionally, we would have to add the costs, the logistics,
8:33 pm
and the materials use on, but i think what absolutely competitive with the rapid pace, if the pool is positive, individual retesting is required. generally, the left doesn't deliver the results until the next morning, but that would still be early enough to break a potential chain of infection set and then click father. that's what you need from us. we are multiplying the genetic material of this virus by effect of 30 trillion majority. this means that you can recognize the virus activity when it is very low fee. and not only when someone is highly infectious and already spreading that virus load among their peers. on a mac mentioned sometimes, here at the elementary school, several infections have been detected at an early stage using the lolly test. although covet cases are currently declining in germany. all the kids will continue using the test at least until the summer holidays. what and whole life is head of
8:34 pm
the traverse. this program it finds the foundation for innovative, new diagnostics, a global alliance for the sector. in some places in the world, kids are being tested before, all adults of fully immunized, but early in some, in the meantime, tests and alternative in preventing the spread of cobra. would you say? definitely testing is really one of the most powerful tools we have to control the spread of congress. we can use to test to diagnose new variance and it protects those who are not vaccinated. and you know, to control outbreaks. you need to test to trace. and so i played and a lot of the kids are not protected by the, maxine, we need these accurate, affordable and child friendly testing strategies. and we saw some more effective or efficient ways of doing it there in cheap ways is testing children though any more challenging than testing adults? definitely the challenge is,
8:35 pm
i mean many as one of the kids said today the year the natal swaps. they are very unpleasant and it's often not easy to be with the kids to or to get tested. so if the child is uncomfortable with attrition and runs around and then the sample quality might be below and then the test is reliable. so there's a lot about testing approaches really inefficient way to get a lot of kids to the same time. so it makes more sense than, than the usual nasal and throat swabs. are there other, any other alternatives in development? well, many different ways to to test and we are constantly looking for, for less invasive methods like the nasal swaps not than the ones that go further in . but we also looking at new innovations and through funding from the german government and we looking into work for instance, face masks where we capture the virus in the mosque. other groups are looking at
8:36 pm
artificial intelligence when you, when you cough into your smartphone, and then you have an interpretation. you can use smart watches to monitor temperature. so that's another thing in the pipeline. so i work a lot on testing for children in regular basis. and one of the challenges we have here is that rely on the students about the stuff you caught up from the long and it's really difficult for children. so here we actually have to sometimes put a tube into the nose and into the stomach and it stays there for 3 days. then you wash the stomach for for the bag and get the bacteria out there. so we've used stool or the proof, the child tentative sample and it works quite well. so there's some procedures have different challenges and children are always the hardest group and we need really yeah, you recent research and development to make this happen. but i'm sure a lot of people, including kids, would be quite enthusiastic about the multitasking mask can. can you tell us more
8:37 pm
about that, how effective that would be? well, it's early days and there's a lot of research being done at this university of less than you can by other groups, and it's already being installed in humans. sorry, in at the moment. yeah. so we think of the source for coverage. we are starting to see the best new results coming up also for for t b. so it's an opportunity to potentially test for multiple diseases using this approach. and you know, once we out of code, it might be useful for us virus or flu. that kind of thing, but more than whether or not we're talking about little, big human beings. the thing about rapid test is that they're quite likely to deliver those false positives. we've often spoken about this. so is there any way around that? well, you know, they are, we are looking
8:38 pm
a lot at the trying to find simpler and affordable tests and it's very important to, to always have evaluations that compare different tests against each other. so you actually choose the best kind of test in each class. we're working here with, with apartments across the world to, to make these independent evaluations. for instance, the university clinic in heidelberg and shoving to berlin and, you know, some tests up better than others. and, well, we basically need to, to try new approaches and. ready yeah, for me, the lollipop approach really seems to be a great invention with for the situation right now in germany with, with a relatively low incidence. the right thing or the whole of their head of the tuberculosis program. it finds the foundation for an innovative, new diagnostics with some innovations and testing and the importance of testing for children. thank you very much. thank you. he'll turn now his derek williams with
8:39 pm
your question on vaccines and variance fall. the current vaccines cruising selected variance to search oh, this is another of those internet rumors that gain some traction in the last few weeks, because somehow it sounds like it might be kind of plausible, but it actually isn't to explain why. i have to go over some of the basics. again, all viruses evolve randomly over time, as they replicate. and a minuscule number of those mutations will prove advantageous. let's say that one of them makes a mutant, a lot more transmissible. and humans, while law a potentially dangerous new variance over time, that variance offspring could start to supplant earlier versions of the virus,
8:40 pm
simply because the variance spreads to more unprotected people in a population within a short period of time because it's more transmissible. so when you start to look for that barrier, specifically in that population, you see increasing numbers of people getting it a search. but that's an effect that can be traced back to the variance ability to spread faster, and people with no immunity, not something that's caused by or driven by vaccines. what vaccines do is turn unprotected people into protected people with immune systems that are quickly able to shut down any subsequent infections with source code to whether that infection would have been with a fast spreading berry and or, or a slower spreading one. in other words,
8:41 pm
they keep us from turning into factories where the pathogen can replicate a lot, and the less the virus replicates, the fewer chances it has to mutate. so in the long run, vaccines will actually help prevent other potentially dangerous new barion from arising by slowing and stopping the spread of stars could be 2 and drastically reducing the number of times that it's able to make copies of itself. mm. finally, we asked children age between 6 and 15 in dozens of countries to take part in a project, recording their impressions of the crisis. we leave you with their drawings, that not only convey the sadness and loneliness, but also the admiration they have for doctors and nurses. i
