6:30 pm
ah, where people come together, they wouldn't normally talk to each other. the american colony hotel in 45 minutes on the d. w. every journey begins with the 1st step and every language with the 1st word louis pinnacle. rico is in germany to learn german. why not learn with him? simple online, on your mobile and free to shop d w e learning course, nico speak? german meetings, he is dw aisha. i'm british banner g. s 2021 comes to a close. we're taking a look back at one of the biggest stories of the. yeah. the father, bon takeover of gone is that we look at the situation of guns, find themselves in after 20 years of democracy and look at what the future might
6:31 pm
hold for them. ah. after decades at war, the us and its allies called it quits, leaving the poly bomb in charge. and if there's a set of images that best capture up how of gonna react it to the poly bon takeover . it is these desperate people clinging on to where u. s. military plane as a default. gobble airport images from the 16th of august the day after the taliban into a bowl. the city's airport would go on to see what teens of death and hopelessness, as people struggled to leave the country. all of this leading to inevitable finger pointing at the united states court abandoning of guns. president joe biden would have none of that. the masters cannot and should not be friday or,
6:32 pm
and dine in a war that afghan forces not willing to fight for themselves. there is some truth to that while many brave gun soldiers did 5000 did surrender to the power button for guns. of course that meant dealing with the taliban, they feared, would exact revenge on people who worked for western nations out and stamped out in march and went outside public airport, hoping to be lifted as suicide bombers killed, more than $100.00 and just oz before the august 31st deadline, the last us soldier, boarded the last military, playing out, leaving the party bon fully in charge. not only that, if he's one of many who was there at the thought a bunch of up he's and i've gone john list whom i've spoken with over the years about development in i've got his son. he isn't though. huh. now. and i reached out to him to ask what it was like in kabul in those weeks of transition. we took to be
6:33 pm
quite honest. everyone thought that you know, the day the tall a bon would come, the world would and that there would be, you know, mass killings on the st. blood everywhere that you know, you would essentially be like an armageddon. and luckily it didn't turn out that way. you know, there was a lot of fear, especially like the day on august 15th, when there were rumors that the tall a bon, were coming into the city. you know, i was out in a very busy, highly traffic area of the city. going to meet a friend for lunch when, you know, i just saw hundreds of people just running in each direction. it looked like a disaster movie and you know, i was the last time i had my headphones on the street. they call, well, i take off my headphones and i'm like, what's going on? and people are saying the telephone or coming the telephone are coming. and everybody was running screaming like just trying to get into cars trying to get
6:34 pm
away. just panicking. it turned out that it was a completely false alarm and you know that in an upcoming until the middle of the night. but that was the level of fear going into it. and then the initial thing is after they actually took over and they can be seen everywhere on the streets of cobble, you know, the streets were very empty. people were afraid to go out. they didn't know how to behave. they didn't know how the tall, a bon would react. you know, there was no economy, most most stores, most restaurants, most businesses were all close to offices are closed. so not a lot of people are going out. and then slowly, you know, like more and more p started going out more and more women. although to be fair, you know, to this day there's, there's a lot fewer women out on the streets of major cities, including kabul than there would have been in years past. and even $56.00 could go, ah, but now what's happened is that the biggest issue for people is that there's no
6:35 pm
money. there's no money anywhere and you know, honest on is an entirely cash based society. it's the kind of play where if you don't have physical money, you don't eat and that has become the reality for everybody in the country now. you know, even if he were, you know, a 1000000 is a little hard interrupted, but if it's something that you're seeing the 1st time you are correspondence have been to problem behalf soon, the briskly leads me to ask you. do you think that the polar bond can actually run the country so far? they haven't shown it. because if you look at it, it's been 4 months since they took power and the taliban have not shown anything that shows how they would run a country, you know, they haven't put forth any specific exact laws thing. this is exactly what we want . you know, they haven't set up say like a specific tax code. they haven't, ah,
6:36 pm
they haven't made any official statements to say that these are, this is the way we envisioned this country. you know, it's been 4 months and i can't think of anything that they did. that is a concrete example of how they want to run the country or an achievement or so forward. i'm, you know, we're still using old passports from the republic. people are still getting documents that say the stomach were public on top of it. ah, you know they, they haven't, you know, that there's nothing. there's no specific law. there's no, deb really, there's no guidance and into what they want a country to look like. we left and even there with the time being i live at the fi . joining us from a don't have at the very 1st person perspective. thanks so much for joining us today. ok, thank you so the volleyball have done the fighting. now they need to do the governing and based on what that if you just said they appear to be failing. if something didn't correspond. nick connelly witnessed 1st time when he was and i've
6:37 pm
got his time in september. this is his report with a canister foreign reserve frozen. the taliban administration has chosen to paralyze the banking system in an attempt to stop hard currency flooding out of the country. in the process. they brought the whole economy to a grinding halt. i'm just waiting for my salary. i don't know the fusion, no one is ok, everyone is depressed here and no one dares challenge them for now. but i've kind of stones new taliban rulers know full well that tensions arising as ordinary africans, cash reserves run out. and new jobs prove almost impossible to come by. these tradesmen tell us they haven't worked in weeks before i would only work as a carpenter. now i'll clean toilets if i have to. we might end up starving or killing ourselves. and the taliban will cut your hand off if you feel i don't want to get into someone in a country when nearly all basic food stuff from rice to oil and flour or imported
6:38 pm
clothes banks. and currency controls been rising prices and scarcity. and then in october, the u, instead at least 14000000 gone. so that's about one 3rd of the population was caught on the brink of starvation. european union pledged 1000000000 euros in aid for august on, but as well, food program told me back then promises me nothing without follow through what the international community need to be doing so that you can do your job. and i've done this on to the international community. we thank you for the bridges that you made, that we really would appreciate the cash flow so that we could get that food into our warehouse. and since then, some cash has started to follow. france, for example, has delivered to 25000000 euros to the un world food program. the 8 group has sent food convoys over the border from just on into afghanistan. russia and china have also delivered winter supplies. the united arab emirates has reopened its cobble
6:39 pm
embassy. there are reports that saudi arabia and india intend to do the same. and china has met with the thought about in doha. qatar is acting as an intermediary for other western countries. one can only imagine that effort, such as these, we gather pace in the coming months. the people of abundance on need the world and the world will hopefully step up. but while small steps are being taken for the people have gone, it's, it's women appear to be moving backwards. since coming to the taliban have made it nearly impossible for all the girls to access education for women to work in government jobs and be visible on tv screens in a flash, some 2 decades of progress in women's rights have been lost. a back in september, just how one public university student described to us what she was feeling, you know, like when, when, when leaning fluid for greater light working,
6:40 pm
when he went to do to just use that. and suddenly, and one night if you can just damage just imagine. and now i might, you like i'm in a room, we only get it, you know, go for the, you know, whether or not this is the feeling they have right? well. and joining me enough, more is not getting a 100, she's from a minister of mines and petroleum of, of gone is done to joins me now from our slow down into days of gone this on. can women and girls be hopeful of a bright future? i was not love because the you know, the situation and the one they can put on there does not allowed to be a woman are not allowed to have what the woman that they have business all going
6:41 pm
to sit here and love their woman gentle enough to be able to continue to work. so there is nothing even as long given the hope that the change i want the office either why had there was abuse been dealing with the problem and demanding funded on listing at the policy and some yes, great policy for one woman. but so far we do see a change in policy. baby b, b 3 is just focusing on woman that matters. not that we need that woman, woman before being an active walker. this is the only need to help with galen mcenroe. paul, would you say the word for the engage with the regime, but believes that women have a secondary place in society a fact to leave with the father,
6:42 pm
especially there and we know that the the want to get them back and they don't have any. we have a good policy for women to construct the diplomatic engagement isn't but it continued that ethical relations in place is better for them to meet equal good ignition and good information i'm thinking here and that often don't even be getting them. so i don't think that they would continue like that. and part of this, it consistency persistency and working together one was leading. we'll leave it there for that. i mean, thank you so much for joining us to dinner just behind working together with one voice for the people have gone on. i'll be honest, it sounds hard to bet it isn't impossible. as we showed earlier, that is already a trickle of an effort underway. and here's hoping it down to a flood in the new. yeah. believe you're here today. there's more on our website
6:43 pm
deducted dot com forward slash asia. i'm going to see you soon. bye. ah. with the fight against the corona virus pandemic. how has the rate of infection been developing? what does the latest research say? information and context? the corona virus update the code 19 special next on
6:44 pm
d w. how about us? is she when i arrived here, i slept with a sick of people in a room as a 9th in it was harsh fear. i even got white hair and learning the german language help. yeah. a lot. this kids to me and quit though, but trinity to interact with the say, you want to know their story, meaningful migrants, verified and reliable information for migrants with oh, nurses on the front line in the battle against the pandemic. the new on the kron variant is a much more infectious form of corona virus. and as making the job of health care workers even more demanding. and they're at risk of infection every day due to the
6:45 pm
large number of infected patients. the world health organization estimates that at least 115000 nurses world wide have died from coven 19. and there are staff shortages and burnouts. the pay is generally low and working conditions are harsh. in many countries, nurses are fighting for better recognition. but apart from applause, as a thank you, they often get very little return. welcome to your covered 19 special. i'm daniel winter. the jobs of health care workers were all ready, demanding, even before the pandemic. once the virus struck, they took to the front lines and saved millions of lives around the world, came an outpouring of appreciation. but did anything really change? many doctors, nurses, kara's and hospital workers believe their work has once again fallen out of the
6:46 pm
public's awareness, leaving them worried that things will never change for the better. to hear from the people themselves, we travel to spain, india and germany. working as a nurse has always been demanding, even before cove. it 19 struck, but the pandemic, his successor, bated the problem. catherine bag, i can feel the impact on her everyday life. the i see you nurse from berlin is one of many who take care of covey patients day in and day out. it's a back breaking job as it was in classical strain is enormous. it's a huge strain working in this protective suit. and a psychological part also plays a big role. we take care of critically ill patients. that's our normal work, what we've been trained for. but now we have critically ill patients who can also put us at risk. this is really stressful and prosperous as to pandemic. hit nurses received a lot of praise for their efforts,
6:47 pm
but their working conditions didn't change. all the beds were full and then there's constant stress for far to little money. many also complain about like of recognition nurses in spain, especially dissatisfied, hundreds of them were recruited to help out during the height of the pandemic, only to find themselves jobless again, when the infection numbers dropped, they were informed by text message and others a, if that they bought a. com, i found this way of informing people about their dismissal. really inappropriate. i can find that and it shows 0 respect for those who gave their role. during the pandemic, palo a could have a higher lapierre. grunfeld got we got his kelley were desperately needed to keep the system working. and now it seems like they're just staff who are disposable there. when i'm on it, i ask them all, but shall i? little tiny bit out. but the importance of having enough health care professionals is now clear to many countries, especially as the pandemic continues. spain has also changed and more secular,
6:48 pm
currently putting in a lot of effort to create more permanent positions and ensure that fewer staff have to work in unsafe conditions of history. we hope the situation will continue to improve in 2022. and i'll admit when the laws for these women in india, the nursing problems in europe opened up new opportunities for them. the caregivers and nurses gained a lot of experience during the pandemic. now they want to also help to european countries. ben mic escandone in india compared to the west indies, especially the u. k. so i, again, i, i know that again, do the same for them also. we, how many st. you contained the band to make in the 1st few months? it was, it was a model for the whole world. and i, we believe that we can do the same in the, or in all the other countries. as with catherine burger, in berlin with welcome such support. the world may have to brace for
6:49 pm
a completely new era after all. for now, what we're talking about, the cone of iris may stay with us permanently, and we have to develop strategies as a yarmouth. we have to strengthen our health care system with enough staff, with enough equipment, with all the necessary tools. corona is not leaving us any time soon or not a little tired may subtler creating better conditions for the caregivers. this will remain one of the key issues in 2022 and we're now lucky enough to be able to speak to christian krygier needs, who's a long specialist, an intensive care physician. thank you very much for joining us, kristian. so from your personal perspective, how are healthcare professionals coping with the pandemic right now? i guess it's, it's more or less the routine now over 2 years, but most of our new says and also doctors, we shouldn't forget them. are very tired at the moment and you mentioned that before that there was a lot of applause in the beginning,
6:50 pm
but at least in germany it was not more or so. so we have not more stuff. we even have for less than that. 10 to 20 percent less nurses than before. and that's the major problem we are faced with at the moment. so it sounds like you're suggesting that more should be done. what more do you think can in practice be done to support health care workers? and one of the major points in germany is that we have really in nursing crisis. and there's no than crisis again by far earlier than the pandemic occurred. and one of the major problems in germany, it's a germany, is a huge economic pressure on the ospital. and that we have to treat many patients and have to last nurses and all the doctors were it. and that is one of the major point and depend damage really has a huge impact on that because they have to do more and you had to do more and the workload was even higher than before. and that is one of the major points. and
6:51 pm
therefore, i guess the 1st thing we have to do is to lower the workload and you can only do that if you have more colleagues. and the 2nd point is that especially the nurses earn more money than they do at the moment in germany. so understanding is a key weakness. what more should the government should health care companies be doing to bring more especially nurses into the health care system in your case in germany? and let me give an example in your k, for example, you have one nurse for vonn when elated patient in germany. one nurse has to care for at least 2 ventilated patients during the night. mostly for 3 patients. and that is one of the major points we have in germany. so we have to, i guess we need a yeah, let's say, and you're not in your health care system, but we have to reorganize the work. how we do that. we have too many hospitals in
6:52 pm
germany, and that means that to less nurses per hospitals are there. and therefore, i guess we have to concentrate for many her nurses in one hospital to lower their workload and to make life easy. i guess that is one of the key points we have to do in the future. ok, so a reorganization, a stronger recruitment drive and more pay. when we look at the, the situation that we're in right at the moment with omicron, how has on the chron affected admissions. so far as you can tell, because we're hearing different messages on the one side, it's far more transmissible that it is already very clear on the other early data appears to show that it could be a more mild illness. yeah, i fully agree with you so, so it's very early now with the army crunch. and in germany, let's say we have 2 weeks behind the other countries in europe, especially behind u. k, or france. and at the moment or the numbers are increasing. so in some parts we
6:53 pm
have 1020 and handbook, for example, 40 percent of all cases, all me chron, but we have today only 8 patients was only crohn all over the country on the i c, u. so it's very early at the moment, but if you look at france, r u k, it seems that at least on the i, c, u, b f. not such a search like we expected one to 3 weeks ago. and i guess we need at least 2 weeks more to have a definite to idea if it's, if it's really less severe than the data very end. and that is what we, what we all wish, at least for the i see you said the workload is low and the pressure is lower. there's plenty still to do christian, kara g. anita, thank you very much for speaking with us. thank you. and now it's time for you to ask and for us to answer his a view,
6:54 pm
a question for our signs correspondent derek williams. oh, who is considered a coven? 19 survivor. is it regardless of its severity? this is really more of a semantic question than a scientific one, but it caught my attention because i've used the term here quite often, but i've never really thought about it before. so let's think about it. the word survivor is a pretty dramatic one. the cambridge dictionary defines it as a person who continues to live despite nearly dying. now, that definition certainly applies to the many, many people in this pandemic who contracted severe coven 19, but didn't succumb to it, but not necessarily to everyone who tested positive for the disease. of the 2 members of, of my immediate family who had mild cases of coven 19, for example. they told me they wouldn't describe themselves as survivors. in
6:55 pm
scientific literature, the term is often but not exclusively applied to people who recovered after having been hospitalized with the disease. but there are also arguments for thinking of those who recovered from even a mild case as survivors um, studies have shown, for instance, that there are increased longer term risks for them as well, of developing the range of symptoms, commonly known as long cove. it and, and online support groups for the condition are full of people who got only a little sick from the initial infection. but have struggled ever since recovering with a wide range of ongoing life altering complaints. though i don't know anyone personally who suffers from long coven, i'm certain that many of those who do would also consider themselves. survivors who
6:56 pm
have to keep working to survive every day. so long and short, there doesn't seem to be a really narrow definition of the word survivor in the pandemic. but because cobra 19 affects people in so many different ways that shouldn't come as a surprise. mm hm. and that's a, it's from the coven. 19 special from me and the whole team stay healthy. stay safe and see you again. soup with
6:57 pm
a piece of injury. some in a city that never rest course between well and failed with stories where people come together,
6:58 pm
they wouldn't normally talk to each other. the american colony hotel ah, 15 minutes long d w. a pulse with the beginning of a story that moves us and takes us along for the ride. it's all about to perspective culture information. this is dw and d, w made from mines. oh hello guys. this is the 77 percent the platform for
6:59 pm
africa. you to repeat issues and share ideas. ah, you know, or this channel, we are not afraid to happen delicate topic because population is growing fast. and young people clearly have the solution. the future belongs to 77 percent. now every weekend on d. w how long does a moment a year, an eternity time. it can be measured precisely and did everyone experiences it differently as if there are different forms of time? time? a phenomenon,
7:00 pm
a dimension. if we know we won't live forever and illusion. about time presenting, he starts december 31st on d, w. ah ah, this is d w. news lie from berlin, germany tries to head off the threat from the arm across corona virus variant. protesters vent their anger as the government introduces new restrictions on private events and public gatherings. it also calls on the unvaccinated to step up
7:01 pm
and get the job. also coming up on the show, russia supreme court shuts down the country's leading human rights group. the enjo memorial dedicates itself to documenting the atrocities of russia stalinist past. will that be, are as crimes now be forgotten. and artist and activists as an alley mo holly's iconic photos. shine a light on black and clear culture in south africa. and exhibition in berlin. features there ground breaking work. ah, i'm pablo foley. las welcome to the program. germany has introduced new restrictions in an attempt to slow the spread of the arm across corona virus variant with new year's eve approaching its placing tighter limits on public and private celebrations. along with new restrictions, the government is also urging those still unvaccinated to roll up their sleeves.
7:02 pm
even during the festive season, thousands of people are getting their job. like at this vaccination center in berlin, at the moment, more than 70 percent of the population is fully vaccinated. and around 36 percent of all germans have received a booster shot. the boot the inform him from the 3 the booster booster. as right now, we barely giving any shots in vaccination centers up to 98 percent boost to judge. people who come here are already pro vaccine kind of actively sought out of vaccination and unable to people turning up here for a booster shot. believe it's the key to ending depend i make i think it's good more people who get vaccinated the better it is for all of fine wine also very important for me. so it's super important in the cutting. it's very,
7:03 pm
very important to me. i'm a bit worried and that's why i'm here. that's all been here. but i got it because my job is important to me and i come into contact with a lot of people. the booster and my health are important to him, and he has introduced new social d sensing measures and restriction, and of the so called to t rule only those vaccinated are recently recovered, may enter many venues and events under the 2 g plot through people also have to show a negative test result on top of that. thanks to these measures, germany has managed to have the number of infections, the 100000 inhabitants between the end of november and the end of december. and know you will also be here over the new year to vaccinate people, because we're in a really critical phase where in a situation where every day counters see it and where it's better to be vaccinated today, rather than tomorrow. our authorities fear a new wave of infection due to the army crime variant. we not only hit the
7:04 pm
population hard, particularly the vaccine aged, but could also affect the running of critical infrastructure such as hospitals and other public services. well, joining us is how your c p is a professor of epidemiology at the university of brandon. here in germany, i welcome to d, w. now over a quarter of the german population is still unvaccinated. so what actually can be done at this stage to convince them to get the job? yeah, this is a difficult task. it's not a homogeneous group. obviously there are some who us to go for the job. they need information that we need to sort of know a barrier access to vaccination and that will work, but we also have a hardened group of people. it's more of a built on song thing. it's not really about vaccination, it's more of opposition in general. and those ones, it's much harder to reach and i'm afraid we won't reach them with what is an offer now. right, that's going to be, it's still a tough job for authorities. now,
7:05 pm
germany, along with many other countries are saying at sharp rises in infections, but at the same time, we're actually seeing infections in countries like say, africa and denmark experienced there. and there waves a little bit earlier, dropped quite quickly. what does this data tell us about on the kron if these things come through as, as you mentioned, then this would be really nice. which would probably mean we haven't and quick wave this runs through the population. if that was the case, especially with a vaccination, right? that we have here and some in units you do to previous disease, then this will also mean that perhaps, you know, to generate the splits already be on the decline again, which would be very good news for all the, you know, hospitals and people expecting to be hit hard by the way of coming up now. all right, so we're told me at the, on the chrome wave net. what if there is another spike and a rapid spread of say, a new variant. what then?
7:06 pm
well as low as possible, but i'm relatively optimistic. this only current is really very infectious and reasonable for our ology. i don't think there are many other viruses that really have this, this kind of infected as it is now. so maybe best side, there's not too much more to expect. but you never know. we have experience a few very and so we need to be a well, you various, but we already gaining community to some degree against or future crone of ours as we, as we move along. all right, so some, some level of positivity that cautious optimism that are vaccinations boosters and of course masks the future. not just for germany, but also globally well, more generally say you need us what is on the agenda for everyone. and that can be achieved by vaccination. unfortunately, many companies, vaccinations are available as, as much as they in germany. so far,
7:07 pm
yes. is vaccinations, it's probably being ready for distance once. it is not continuously needed or again, needed and times of rises of peaks. but mosques. yeah. i'm sure we will probably need mosque once in a while, but not permanently every time all the time with us. so i think we just need to be prepared and better prepared than we've been. but overall, i think we are getting better. i think in dealing with the box, with army kron and other ends. ok, how you'll see professor of epidemiology. thank you for joining us on d. w. and all the best in 2022. here's a round up of some other developments in the pandemic. us health authorities have shortened the recommended isolation time for americans with asymptomatic, covert 19 cases down from 10 to only 5 days. australia has recorded another record surgeon cases as an outbreak of the highly infectious amik. wrong variant disrupts the planned reopening of the economy and turkey. has also seen infection spike,
7:08 pm
according to the health ministry you cases rose by 30 percent just on monday. that's the highest percentage rise so far this year. in the latest blow to russian civil society, the supreme court has ordered the closing of memorial, the countries most respected human rights group. it defends the rights of political prisoners in russia and helps victims of soviet era repression. the court agreed with the prosecutions argument that the organization violated a law on quote, foreign agents memorial and its support. her say the charges are politically motivated, rushes, oldest, and most important human rights organization. now disbanded, supporters defied a protest fan to gather in front of memorials headquarters. they said the decision was politically motivated. was the idea of critics of being eliminated. so is the opposition. anyone who wants to lit the moscow for russia and look critically at its history that is being eliminated, ib naya,
7:09 pm
your historical memorial was classified as a foreign agent. that meant the organization had to comply with various requirements. the court found it in violation of those rules. the n g o is now banned and must stop its work in russia. for many memorial represents the historical conscience of the country. it aims to make sure that the reign of terror in the soviet union under joseph stalin and the inhumanity of the gulag prison camp system are not forgotten. when earlier this month, russian president vladimir putin accused memorial of rehabilitating the reputations of nazi collaborators in world war 2 was a moment of using. the organization denied all allegations and wants to appeal. it's representatives say they may take the case to the european court of human rights. while for more on this, let's bring in. tatiana close cover. she's
7:10 pm
a lawyer for memorial. international enjoys as joins is now from moscow at welcome to d. w. tatyana. you were one of the lawyers representing memorial during the proceedings . why is the russian state so determined to have your organisation close down? hello. while the domain of the russian civil society has the space of the russian civil society has been shrinking for a d k by now and but the yield 2021 has become the worst year. and the situations has rated dramatically if someone's house while in the sleep of a year ago and looking up today, they would not recognize the landscape of the russians. and the fact that international memorial was dissolved today by the judgment of the supreme court as human rights cent memorial will most probably be tomorrow,
7:11 pm
by the judgement of the moscow city court is a very clear sign that human rights organizations are not welcome by you anyhow. in today's russia right now, we just heard russian opposition, politician grigory of lensky in our report. and he said, this ruling mark samir put in russia, changing from an authoritarian stay to a totalitarian one. now can your work or similar work continue under the circumstances? ah, we hope to continue our work until it is somehow legal problem is that continuing the worth of organization after the dissolution can be considered a crime. all non enforcement of duties shall decision. so that's why continuing our work to be a little bit problematic for us. right, well,
7:12 pm
memorial has been working since the fall of communism, collecting testimony and records about the victims of silence gulags. what's gonna happen now to those archives law. fortunately, as the judgment does not say that was the according to russian legislation or property organization that is sold by judicial decision should be forwarded for the purposes of the of the essential. so in fact, mean that it should be given to another range you which have similar purposes fortunate with the judgment, doesn't say that the liquidation commission will be a governmental one. so we hope that we are that we can
