8:30 pm
the victory a massive trial against the criminal organization for which state witnesses and the victims families are eagerly waiting. one prosecutor's battle against the mafia. the 60 minutes on dw ah ah, what a difference a year makes football fans follow the european championships. in some places, even with masks, the bands are playing before live audiences and people are travelling again. but it's all of that a good idea. just over a year ago, the corona virus made the world shut down, brought death and despair. i'm seeing young patients,
8:31 pm
old patient people of all age ranges, who are just incredibly sick and you can even hear it. now that as i'm walking through patients rooms in the hallway, you just hear oxygen. now, there are vaccines and countries where many people have had them more than half the population in the worst country, the u. s. in britain, that's even 2 thirds. after more than a year of code 19, we've become familiar with complex medical terminology, difficult biological concepts. but we also realize it's not going away that easily . britain and the united states are having trouble convincing more people to get vaccinated. delta very and spreading rapidly. and vast regions like africa, still lack of ac scenes. is it really time to celebrate
8:32 pm
in the welcome tier covered 900 special christ cobra and berlin? life is beginning to return to normal in many places as the worst of the pen then make it looks like it might be behind us. but there are spots in the world where it's a different story, like an australia where several cities are re introducing restrictions to try to contain new covered $900.00 clusters. some linked to the delta varied sydney and darwin have begun. new locked up while other cities are re introducing mask, where of the 5 percent of australia's population have been fully vaccinated. now the shows dealing and living with the virus is still necessary for now. covered 19 isn't gone. that's good. more on this from julian tang, he's a vi ologist and a clinical microbiology professor at lester university in the u. k. welcome to
8:33 pm
d w. julian, for more than a year, the current of iris has the term of the daily lives of people around the globe. now you've been researching respiratory viruses for years. how is this virus different so this far is not really behaving much differently from a typical pandemic virus. entering a totally sexual human population. i think what's different about this far as now is the way we can actually study it in real time and also track all the different computations as well as the case number, the death rates. the magic vis symptomatic transmission and infection plus also the vaccine development on the anti virus child being developed for this pandemic that the current of ours is not as badly as a bowl for example, nor is difficult to combat of h i v. nevertheless, it has triggered an unprecedented global crisis. how exactly
8:34 pm
so age are the terms attached to a certain group of the population. and the bill again is very geographically confined, whereas the, my team is really started. everybody from every country. rp socio economic status individual and also including the health care we'll get on the track to them. so this is a facet spreads very much one of the vein of influenza. the measles, for example. we also turn cause ation infection and it's very transmissible preceptor magically which is different from the previous saw a virus back in 2003. and also different from things like small fox and any bullet to some extent. because it can actually be transmitted up to 5 days before the onset and some people never develop symptoms at all and kill those spread the virus . and i was seeing a penetration into the, in the population in primary school, secondary schools, by these children mixing classes of 20 to 30 every day, 5 days a week and bring the vice home to the parents so that i don't care is and i was
8:35 pm
seeing much, much more of a focus of the population who haven't been vaccinated yet. now the younger population being more affected by the current of ours is one of the things that has many people worried when it comes to the delta vary. and how worried are you about this mute? so this for the reasons one is like is actually breaking through the double dose, vaccinate individuals in the population to come at a time when the vaccination of the older people have been mostly completes it. so there was still seen some breaking infections there, but now is focusing on the younger people. and the young people are the ones who are still working and driving the economy as well as in full time education. and also seeing an emergence of long coded in a greater way than previously. conspiracy was obscured by deaths and hospitalization cases. but now we see a lot of long period emerging, 50 sort of people having hard coded to get long coded. this may become a chronic,
8:36 pm
helps a burden on the society during when the current virus will started developing these various word among scientists was well, variance are more contagious, but probably less deadly or less likely to trigger severe cases. is that still the case when it comes to the death of area? so it's hard to say at the moment, and now we've got, you know, delta plus will be delta a y won carrying the south african form 7 n mutation. if these guys keep emerging and changing as we tried to assess, was very hard to find severity in a very different way. the one aspect that we haven't really upon now that we did discuss it last year was this idea of antibody dependent enhanced. but i just wonder whether the previous community given by vaccine or national question to the original who hand virus might be wrapped in a different way to these new a variance that may actually allows with severity of illness based on that baseline
8:37 pm
of immunity induced by the previous virus immunity or the vaccines which are based on the original virus. that's something that we need to look into. now, scientists have learned a lot about the current r, as in just the course of one year and quickly develop effective vaccines as well. what are the things that researchers do not yet know, and that they're specifically looking into ok, so there's just some news news about the mixed vaccine regimen, which shows that if you give one does a search and then a 2nd, those are the 54 weeks later you get a very good level of community service mixed max vaccine seems to work quite well. and even the reverse order seems to be quite effective. so that will help hopefully, broad. the vaccine options globally, of course, the money with actually to try and this. the other thing is whether read infections or breaks infections also have a kind of higher risk or lower risk of long have it. this is just national
8:38 pm
infections of the 1st time. we're not sure what the consequence the reinspection would be, because a lot of infections, a milder we don't know whether that actually increases or decreases the risk long have it as well doing in your opinion, have mistakes been made and research might have contained the extent of the pandemic briefly if you would yes, i think all of europe and north america realized that it could have acted earlier and will dramatically, from southeast asia and in australia, new zealand locked down the virus earlier to give time. so the fact seems to be developed and distributed or product ministered. so i think the countries like australia, new zealand, and sockets as in countries, got it right. the 1st part, the pandemic. but now what we're seeing is a increased degree of action hesitancy and refusal in those same countries actually did very well. control the virus because they see the price was less of a threat than the vaccine was effects. and that change in that mentality needs to
8:39 pm
be made to protect everybody from ongoing reputation virus and generation of new variance doing and tang of less than a versity. thank you for your thoughts and now it is time to put one of your questions to our science corresponded or williams paul? oh. new code 19 variance just grew stronger and stronger over time. oh, this is a tough question to answer because it assumes that evolution is predictable, which it isn't. mutation happens randomly in virus genomes, as they replicate, and the physical changes that those genetic changes end up causing. and the virus is what we mean when we talk about it evolving a tiny fraction of those mutations by just by sheer dumb log. they'll
8:40 pm
provide variance with evolutionary advantages of some kind, a big advantage as we've seen, for instance, with the alpha and the delta variance. as far as kofi 2 is if the variant becomes more transmissible for some reason, but trans miss ability can increase for a range of reasons. one is say that a variant is able to get yourselves to make a lot more of it than your average work day. sorry, cubby to virus can. another would be if the variant were able to remain viable longer and the environment hands increasing its chances of infecting someone. so very different reasons. same effect, see what i mean about predicting the stuff. so when you say stronger and stronger, which i assume means causing worse and worse disease, then you have to start by asking whether doing so would provide
8:41 pm
a variant with evolutionary advantage of some kind and, and it's hard to see how it would a lot of biologists say, a more optimal combination of traits for a virus is to grow, eventually more transmissible, but at the same time, less deadly. because if a pathogen doesn't kill people, they're going to be around to spread it to others, and they're more likely to let down their guard. and in fact, each other with it. so though we can't predict with any certainty what future, sorry, cubby to variance, well, work like many experts expect them to spread more easily, but cause less severe disease. could well be that within 10 or 20 years, getting over 19 won't be any worse for the average person, then say, catching a cold is today. but because of allusion isn't predictable. that's just the hopeful guess me evolution
8:42 pm
isn't predictable. well, that's all for this edition of code 900 special for more information about the pandemic. you can check out the cobit 900 section on our website at w w dot com until next time. thanks for watching ticket. the news . it's about billions. it's about power. it's about the foundation world order. the new silk road. china wants to expand its influence with this trade network. also in europe. china is promised partners, rich can fit in europe, and there's a sharp warning you want. wherever accepts money from, the new superpower will become dependent on in china's gateways. europe

many the we ask why? because the life of diversity make up your own mind. w. need for mines the greetings from balmy berlin and welcome to arts and culture. a psychological pressure cooker of a world, a wash in information inspires new work, fine german artist, noble breski, and also coming up efforts to preserve the ancient libraries of chin, get tea in mauritania, may be in vain as the sahara desert encroaches at an alarming rate. and durham, and also jennie up and back. 3rd, novel visitation, as this lead to pick for a summer must read,
8:45 pm
but steeped in history or normal risky is one of germany's most successful. contemporary artists he exhibits worldwide. but his current solo exhibition is right in his home town. awful. i pick, this infotainment explores how the pandemic age specifically has in many ways diminished our space of experience to the screens of our many technical devices. and how a world ruled by digital technology echoes other forms of oppression. me know, but biscuits takes artifacts from the past and uses them to comment on are complicated present. the result is an organized chaos of computers, doors, and fluorescent tubes, almost all of which originally came from the exhibition building. in so doing, he combines the design vocabulary of the 1900 eighty's with his art and the finish volume is,
8:46 pm
i think it's incredibly interesting to have this sort of bracket from the antediluvian 1900 east german robot. tron computers where they tried to collect people's data, but didn't really manage it to the current situation where our life is completely determined by algorithms and machines cycles. and everyone's got one of those things in their hand and stairs at a smartphone, a laptop or some other monitor laptop. and wanted to use. these are systems of fine that the light to burn biscuit has arranged in front of his paintings. and what i'm mistaken in them is an imprisonment within digital world being confronted with hatred and the insistence on self presentation, even against a backdrop of danger. biscuits painting is not suggestive. it makes direct even bold statements to the viewer in garish colors. the exhibition touches on teams of information, overload entertainment, and missed information on call. if we have an incredible flood of
8:47 pm
information on glove, we have an incredible flood of misinformation or as incorrect absurd theory of conspiracy fears and theory in on to and on the other hand, over the past months we've unfortunately not really had any new impulses in our real life kind of annoying and poison. obviously, for biscuit, he who was socialized in east germany. the like the concert hello offers an intriguing location for his flourish of he's seen this building has an interesting history. it was built as an extension of lights, estate owns data processing center here as and other such centers in east germany, the socialist republic was to become more digital with enormous computers. but the end of socialism put an end to those plans and the computers never arrived. not at the desk. he uses this historical legacy old robot drawn pcs and other remnants of the place and arrange his name and bonds. and i take
8:48 pm
on all that madness and like a child, i sit down among it all and rearrange alpha. so that's something i also do on the canvases with annoy me. i cut things up and glue them down again on mirrors are on campus. as i take a similar approach with the installation here and playing with the materials i find looking for what he stacks the objects layers and arranges them in front of his paintings which are from various periods of his career. but put together, they express a feeling of turmoil, supposedly innocent, vulnerable faces, viscous beautiful young men disintegrate, explode, or scream, and rage, ah,
8:49 pm
falling into an abyss, this light motif of biscuits can be seen in a large scale painting, which can be read as a reference to a fierce laden world whose downfall is being invoked is printed on. so i find 2 aspects interesting about this. one is the permanent fear mongering that the world will end. that's something that's been going on for ages. the world have been ending for centuries. and on the other hand, the question of how we represent our fear and how do we actually imagine that the world is going to end doll and we stand on this for dusty, very gay and build this in. so tainment shows norbert bisk is apocalypse, including unrestrained media consumption and the overwhelming flood of images. we struggled to process that has colorful paintings. the artist conveys both dreamily and clearly the restlessness inherent in our time. and in other
