2:00 am
we've got some hot tips for your bucket list, the magic corner for food and some great cultural memorials to boot w travel off we go the this is dw news, and these are the top stories. south africa has entered a strict national, locked down to slow search of corona, virus infections linked to the fast spreading, delta very and all gatherings and alcohol sales have been banned for 2 weeks. authorities have also imposed occur, few placed curves on travel and close schools. south africa is africa, the worst hill country. why the cobra? 1900. pandemic c o p as government says it has agreed to an immediate
2:01 am
cease fire with rebel forces and the warranty warranty, right? region, thousands of people have been killed and fighting and recent months and many more displaced. the announcement of the truce came after a rebel forces claimed to have taken control of the regional capital. nato and ukraine have begun, major naval exercises in the black sea. the u. s. and kia are leading the 2 way drills involving more than 30 countries. the alliance says they're intended to showcase this commitment to collective defense, russia annex the crimean peninsula in 2014, and sees the exercise as a provocation. as the state of renewed from berlin, there is a lot more on our website, c, w dot com the aah! scientists say the protection from b modernity and by on take pfizer corona virus,
2:02 am
vaccines could last year's of that means no booster shots, but that also means no major mutations of the virus and it's variance no guarantee there and no guarantee will get the existing variance under control either from australia to south africa, to bangladesh. the delta variant is responsible for new locked downs and in spain, it's threatening to turn the british tourists into this somers persona non grata. i'm bring gulf and berlin. this is the day the me no time, no room for complacency. we really face to my serious process. a kind of a panoramic since the early days in february, march, last year, the situation had gotten worse. along with many other countries in africa,
2:03 am
south africa, the massive decisions of infection the, everybody to be afraid of the people over the 1000 also coming up air conditioning used to be taboo in places like seattle in vancouver will not anymore a huge. he don't, has people living along the pacific coast of canada in the us feeling like they woke up along the equator? yes. hi. i mean you just stand around there like i you can breathe. it's so hard for me. definitely have 2 issues. yeah. yeah. the pavement, even grabbing my. no, thank you. go back inside. what's our viewers on p b s in the united states into all of you around the world? welcome. we begin today with reason to imagine a post pandemic world, free of any vaccine booster shots. a new study release today is adding to the
2:04 am
evidence that the m r and a vaccines. modernity and biotech, pfizer offer protection that is durable, durable, as in decades. but that will depend on how the virus mutates moving forward. and it is precisely the variance of the virus that threatened to dash, all hopes future and present. just ask the people down under australia is facing several outbreaks of the highly infectious delta v area. a lockdown is now in effect in sidney and will be so for at least 2 weeks. and it's not only in new south wales where the variant is spreading. it is absolutely necessary. the reality is we are not out of the woods yet, not by a long while. the risk to the community has grown in the past 24 hours. we are now in an extremely critical period. we must die lockdown while we keep this bar as trapped. well, they are saying the same tonight in south africa and it's all too familiar. their
2:05 am
south africa has reintroduced tough restrictions, including abandoned the cell of alcohol. it also extended nightly curfews as it struggles against a new surgeon cove in 1900 cases caused by the delta vary. here is south africa, president 0 rema folks. we are in the grid of a devastating wave that about all indications seems like it would be worse than those that have preceded it. the peak of this 3rd wave looks to be higher than the previous 2 waves of a more. now i'm joined by doctor john campbell. he is a health analyst based in england, and he is considered an authority on all questions about this pandemic. it's good to see you again. what is it about this delta variant? that means so many countries are now increasing. pandemic restrictions where they
2:06 am
were just emerging back into normality. it is just so disappointing branches and things looking like they're going well, and now we're sort of plunged back into the depth of it. it's the increased trans mis ability of this very now public health things and just said it's 64 percent more transmissible than the previous u. k. you can't alpha barrier. and when that was about 40 percent more transmissible than the original wild strain variant. so this is at least twice as transmissible as the original barrier that we'll be dealing with. and this means that measures that were working before such as household isolation. for example, a no longer working. now we're finding that the virus is spreading around the whole household. this is largely how it got seated in the u. k. people coming from india, they were isolating that, passing the virus on several of the members of the household. we're taking out into the, into the community and things in the you care of the case. they're going to magically up. i mean, today in the u. k. almost 23000 new cases in the u. k. just of the single day
2:07 am
about 70 percent of the past week. the, there's a really short increase in plate places that have this delta barrier and that the percentage of cases seemed to be pretty well doubling every week. somebody like germany and out about 15 percent. next we could well be 30 percent. very transmissible, high viable lobes, small numbers of viruses need to become, in fact, it is a big transmission problem. and what about the vaccines? is there now a consensus on which vaccines are or are not effective? or can protect us against this delta area? the big thing about the delta value is if you don't get a high degree of protection after one dose of either vaccines. so we're looking at about 30 percent for the oxford astrazeneca vaccine cover for the 1st dose, only about 36 percent for the final vaccine. but after 2 doses, the effects are really quite similar. and the protects again,
2:08 am
hospitalization and thickness, which is really the important thing about 92 and 94 percent protection. so even a low the slight differences in the risk of getting symptomatic disease. the chances of getting really sick are very good and we've got good levels of protection with both vaccines, whether it's the, the oxford or the 5 that we're using in the u. k. interesting point. know that the symptoms of changing quite a bit in people vaccinated. so people need to have the high index of suspicion for common cold type symptoms. so the most common symptoms now when people roxanne's a headache really no see sneezing and sore throat. so people are getting those the need to consider the possibility of virus go and get tested in case, but passing on to more vulnerable people. and you know, we are beginning this height of the summer travel season. some countries have re open to tourists under certain conditions and we know that thousands of people are traveling to the euro. 2020 football then use is another spike in cases inevitable
2:09 am
with this the you know, 2020 is a concern. the epidemiologist in denmark of identified 5 cases of delta, very and in danish fans, and they're pretty sure they got it from a football match. that means they go to outside, even the lower, the crowds are not at capacity. now the transmission outdoors would not have occurred with the original barrier because this is so much more transmissible. it's possible that the your football tournament could be a super spreader event. we hope not because it is outdoors, but there are cases and evidence of that now. and i really think we are taking with what we know today, we're taking quite a risk on carrying on with these large capacity football games. when you look around the world campbell, the places where the delta variant is really spreading almost out of control. and are there enough vaccines there for people to get vaccinated apps?
2:10 am
absolutely not brand. to me. we're actually looking at kayla to will to now we've got your the vaccination program. he's going really well. it's catching up with the u. k. it's actually accelerating the u. k. is reasonably good. the united states is kind of in between the 2 of the vaccines taken the u. s. has been slightly nerve of late. vaccines are going well in china, but pretty well everywhere in the world. vaccinations are low in russia. it's due to lot low uptake, but in most countries in the world is to, to low vaccine supply. and we know that because this disparity so much more transmissible, we need a higher level of community or heard immunity to suppress the virus. we're probably looking about 80 percent of people that we need to be commuting to really suppress this virus. we're nowhere near that in indonesia, for example, cases a spine thing. we've learned about a strange south africa with a delta variant countries. i'm particularly worried about bangladesh, pakistan my him are thailand, cam bodie, a vietnam, all the area seeing dramatic increases. now with completely inadequate vaccination,
2:11 am
we really need to have an emergency sorts of manhattan projects on vaccines for the world. doctor john campbell is always good talk with you, i can, but we appreciate your time and your valuable insights tonight. thank you. thank you. back the well to soccer. now, in one of the most intense rivalries in the game, some would say in all sport on tuesday, england will host germany at wimbley in the last 16 of euro 2020. historically, germany have come out on top and these tournament clashes with one exception, that goes way back. i wasn't even a sparkle in my father's eye when the 3 lions last claim victory against the germans at wim. the historical game with a goal that remains controversial today. i thought england's only major
2:12 am
trophy came in 966 when they beat west germany on home soil to claim the world cup courtesy of what's known in germany as the wembley goal. the rivalry has since made its mark on pop culture. germany both for world cup titles and 3 european championships there last year as when came in 1996 when they beat england and penalties shoot out in their own backyard on route to the final current. england coach garris southgate missed the decisive spot. kick in the semi final clash, england have traditionally made more of the rivalry than the german counterparts with the media often stoking the flames of this rather one sided affair. but now that has been a role reversal of sorts. japanese usual clinical efficiency has disappeared and 3 wildly inconsistent performances saw them not a loss, a win, and a drop to scrape through the group stage. meanwhile, the 3 lions have played less exciting but most solid football unbeaten in 3 games.
2:13 am
and yet to concede england fans will be hoping garris southgate could make up for his penalty miss. but against germany, it's never easy. the it's and for more on the big game we have a very on corresponded jonathan harding at wembley getting to you, jonathan your, there were the actions going to take place. we know there's tons of media coverage . the british media, they like to refer to the england germany rivalry as one of the greatest in all sports. is it i think that might be a little over the top if i'm honest. the whole basis of rivalry is that both sides also some level of success and quite frankly, england hasn't been able to do that against germany, oregon to anybody else for that matter and recent told them. and so i think that's part of the issue. i think it's a big game, but i think the rivalry is not what used to be, quite frankly,
2:14 am
the 2 sides are approaching this fixture in a slightly different way. more noise wearing his rainbow on by the so is england's captain. hurricane and both sides. we'll kneel before the kick off so it feels a little less like a rivalry and a little bit more like 2 teams standing or representing something bigger than football, which is perhaps more important than a football robbery. yes. or this very, very important observation there. england will be playing at home. is that likely to work in their favor? do you think? i think so. 40000 and fines are expected in the stadium. so that can only be a boost, especially in type games, which is likely, well, this will be germany and i've always had close games and they've played each other so that can only work doing the advantage, however, must also be said in a fight. most of the games or games for that matter at home. so there is a settlement of pressure to be involved here as well. you know, the expectation of delivering at home in a major tournament is that we've heard a lot about football coming home. well, it is tomorrow night,
2:15 am
but the question is for how long? you know, there's a little bit of risk here too for anyone involved. we know that the german chancellor americans, she's asked fans not to travel to london because of the risk of the delta variance . what measures are in place to stop the spread the virus? because of the game? well, every find needs to have a ticket. i need a proof of proof, excuse me, of negative test or proof of full vaccination, which is perhaps a standard procedure. but what i found most interesting was that face or mouth coverings are required, but not medical mosque. so the f f p 2 months that are most common in germany for example, are not necessarily the standard. you just need something to cover your face and mouth. so that is perhaps a concern, i think generally having 40000 people in stadium, which is it increased capacity from the group stages is also a concern. so there are some questions to be asked about whether this is a good idea or after all. and jonathan, before we let you go, it is prediction time with your show to the clairvoyant elephant.
2:16 am
so who is she going for this time? wait for it's there you go out of the drunk, it's germany. yes. he lives in hamburg z now. ready? correctly predicted the results in germany's last 3 euro 2020 games. i mean, you may have to trust in the task. so job and do you agree with this elephant? well, you showed might be yoda when it comes to predicting football. but i think the force is willing and we will c d w core is jonathan, know, are they yet? where be jonathan? thank you. the well, imagine the early summer temperatures you've always know now add a heat wave that doubles those temperatures. it is extreme and it's reality for large parts of the united states and canada at the moment. in one village in
2:17 am
canada's british columbia. the temperature reached nearly 47 degrees celsius at the weekend. that's a 116 degrees fahrenheit. the average maximum temperature there for late june is 19 degrees celsius. 67 degrees fahrenheit. the cooling due to beat the summer heat. residence sticks of the water as sister mama rose above 40 degrees celsius in seattle for the 1st time ever. yeah, i mean you just stand around like i you can't breathe. it's so hard for me. definitely have 2 issues. yeah, yeah. the pavement, even gravity. no, thank you. go back inside the heat was too much for these farmers market. this is very few times that we do close the market early,
2:18 am
most of the time of which we've ever had to close the market earliest because i know that because of the heat, i think is the 1st time we've ever closer to the temperatures like these are no coincidence. the past decade has been the warmest on record, and the 5 hardest days were all recorded in the last 5 years. the main thing going on is, is highly unusual weather pattern. but that being said, the climate change is real. our temperatures have warmed here, especially summer nighttime temperatures. and so that has just kind of raised the baseline in made this heat event that much more severe ma, some seem to revel in the extreme temperatures. many environmentalists say this heat wave bears all the hallmarks of a climate emergency. and for more now, i'm joined by david phillips. he is a climb itala. jesse join me tonight from toronto, the cool side of canada. at the moment, miss phillips is good to have you on the program. when you look at these high
2:19 am
temperatures in the western parts of canada, in the united states, tell me how much of this is extreme weather and how much of this is climate change? you know, brett, it's always the question that comes up any time you get a monster. hurricane super typhoon, a heat wave of forest fire. people always say coming out of our candle pipes and smokestacks. well, you know, i think it's, we know that climate change doesn't create a heat waves or hurricanes or major storms, but it contributes to it. you know, these heat waves are like our grandparents cheap way, the evil curd before. but what's different about the bread is the intensity of them be the statistic stuff and the character personality, the nature of the way. they're not all the same. this one is much earlier than we've ever seen before. typically in western canada,
2:20 am
we see the warm temperatures occur the end of july, the beginning of august. this is in june when it's typically not warm as time. we're seeing the area of the sprawling from the arctic circle right down to the desert. so west and, and know escaping it and with record breaking and we just broke a record for 84 years. yeah. and so i think that what time it change does it sort of wraps it up. it's sort of like the steroids for weather and, and so therefore it makes systems bigger and better, and, and more impactful. and so i think the degree, the elements of this heat wave are clearly has human dna, but it's not the total costs. but as we move forward, if we look into the future, should we be calculating more heat waves like this? to be a part of the weather. and she would be talking about a new normal when we talk about normal weather. well clearly, brett,
2:21 am
i mean there's no question about it. we, what you see is what you're going to get. it's a forecast for the future. and likely, we will see breaking records and record stanford for one or 2 more days, or else 32 years, not 84 years. and so my sense is that clearly get used to it. this is the new norm . this is the kind of weather event that we'll see more often, especially in a country like canada. i mean, we're the 2nd coldest country in the world. the snow use country, the world, people come and ask about windshield and polar vortex and, and frost bite. it's not these, these incredible desert, like temperatures, and so for us where we don't have air conditioning to speak up in the west, or even our buildings are not set up to shed the heat. is because it's a real dangerous situation. historically unprecedented, but from a public health point of view, it is quite, quite a hit. and so i think the,
2:22 am
the lesson is here, more of them stronger, more intense. that is the forecast going ahead and what you revise to people living, for example, in vancouver or in the united states and seattle in those cities. air conditioning has traditionally been taboo. and now, i mean, am i right in assuming it's mainstream, you're going to need it if you want to survive? oh, i think it's artificial cooling that is going to clearly be the the you can't buy an air conditioner or a fan in, in all the west coast of canada. and so that's going to be more, it's going to be only going to be built with built in air conditioning. i mean i'm, and that, of course, can make it worse because it can create more, more energy needs and, and that could wrap it up more. i mean, it's like a vicious cycle in a way, so i think people are trying to adjust to it. my best advice is to put off today
2:23 am
which can do next week, and it's going to come to annette. but clearly the people who are most affected by this are the elderly infants that don't perspire as well, and they have poor circulation. the homeless people were already seeing cooling centers are opening longer and hydrating centers. even industry is closing down because of the, the heat of the day. so it's something that it's just not factored into our, our plans in our strategies, but it's going to have to be going ahead. this is a lesson to, to learn. this is not something that is just a one off. it's going to be something that's going to be very much part of of the new climate here in, in canada. yeah, the 21st century climate. definitely not. 20th century. any more. mr. david phillips, senior climate ologist for environment and climate change. we appreciate your time and your insights tonight. thank you. thank you. brad. the, the official death toll from that condo building collapsing,
2:24 am
your miami has risen to 10 with more than 150 people. still missing, rescuers say they have not given up hope of finding more survivors in the rubble. why the 12 story building collapsed is unknown, but a former building worker says the foundations were frequently flooded with sea water. as a precaution, inspections have been ordered for all nearby high rise buildings that are 40 years and older. the started with south africa. we're going to end with south africa where the sardine fever has broken out. once a year, millions of sardines swim along the country's coast, followed by birds. sharks and fishermen rushing to get their share of the catch. our very own correspondent adrian creek decided to do some fishing himself. this isn't an oil leak. it's a shoal of sardine fishermen. gerald michael and his team
2:25 am
a waiting for this one. okay. yeah, no, that was within seconds. everything suddenly gets very hectic. one for the right one. go by. what i called thought in view. everybody's got 2 random shots. yeah, yes. yeah. oh yeah, between june and august, the saudis move along the east coast of south africa following the cold currents in the indian ocean. bigger hungry fish follow them. and so do the fishermen, the clothes or the shoals of sardines gets to the coast, the better the chances of a catch one pocket of audience. the medicine
2:26 am
is huge, disappointment when the mit gets caught in rakes. most of the sardines get away with a fortune with a few kilometers further on. another team has more like throw and catch us. 150 grades worth of sardines in a net 2 thirds of the fish i sold for more than 2000 euros. the rest goes to the team, it took a chance to gamble and paid off, and i can see the novice about the as you know in the game is very dangerous. as you can see. having to my thought, i had a cable go through molig. and that's the name of the game. we play with shocks, rocks net, rough seas, everything box. if you can get the fish,
2:27 am
you can make some money. for gerald bucko and his team, the 1st thing to do is repair the nets. and then go home, empty handed bed to bed. 3 bad luck, everybody i suppose, and they get to turn it according to buckle saudi fever. should be around for a few more weeks. to be a star. di know right. the day is almost done, but the conversation continues online. you'll find us on twitter either at the w news, you can follow me and bring got tv and remember, whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day. we'll see you then everybody who's the news.
2:28 am
the news. the news. the kickoff game. they stabilize and attack up our modern wing game changer. testicle. dream come true. we've got 4 of them who are causing quite a stir in the book. because after all, it makes a big difference on the page on the w. a. gym for radical islam.
2:29 am
pakistan moving towards a modern state pakistan the journey across the land contracts, major contradictions and use on d w. ah was the football fields, jewish life. that's what from producer owner and journalists who are exploring, delving into history and the presence that i would never have thought that could be
