8:16 pm
w. sometimes a seed is all you need to allow big ideas to grow. we're bringing environmental conservation to life with learning pass like global ideas. we will show you how climate change and environmental conservation is taking shape around the world and how we can all make a difference. knowledge grows through sharing. download it now, feel free with . oh, nurses that are 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 it's making the job of health care workers even more demanding. and they're at risk of infection every day due to the
8:17 pm
large number of infected patience. 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 cove. 19 special. i'm daniel winter. the jobs of health care workers were already 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
8:18 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 it's a nurse has always been demanding even the full curve. it 19 struck, but the pandemic has accessible to the problem. catherine burger can feel the impact on her everyday life. the i see, you know, it's from berlin is one of many who take care of cove it patients day in and day out. it's a back breaking job as little as eco 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 washed with as to pandemic. hit nurses received a lot of praise for their efforts,
8:19 pm
but they're 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 recruiter 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 that it's a, if that the body on my fondest way of informing people about their dismissal, really inappropriate. i can find that in that it shows 0 respect for those who gave their role. during the pandemic bellow, it could have a high lab be a wrong vehicle. we've got a dog. they were desperately needed to keep the system working. and now it seems like they're just staff who are disposable. that will m on it. i ask them all, but shall i? that was how did the data? 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 must hitler
8:20 pm
currently putting in a lot of effort to create more permanent positions and ensure that fewer staff have to work in unsafe conditions. rochester, we hope the situation will continue to improve in 2022 and i'll admit when the laws for lease 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 ban miguel gander in india compared to the west indies, especially the u. k. so i, again, i know that again, do the same for them also. we, how many stu contained the bantam again, 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 were cut and burger in berlin with welcome such support. the world may have to brace for
8:21 pm
a completely new era after all for an hour without without the kona virus, me stay with us permanently. and we have to develop strategies as 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. warner for less than 5 my 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 career needed, 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 a, it's more less a routine now over 2 years. but most of our nurses 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,
8:22 pm
but at least in germany it was not more so. so we are not more stuff. we even have 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 work? yeah, one of the major points in germany is that we have really in nursing crisis, and there's nothing crisis began 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 hospitals. and so that we have to treat many patients and have to last nurses and also doctors for it. and that is one of the major points. and the pandemic really had 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
8:23 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 understaffing 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. now let me give an example, in your case, for example, you have one nurse for one when he lated patient in germany. one nurse has to care for at least 2 ventilated patients during the night, but mostly for 3 patients. and that is one of the major points we have in germany. so we have to, i guess we need in. 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
8:24 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 easier. 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 of france. and at the moment the numbers are increasing. so in some parts we
8:25 pm
have 1020 and handbook, for example, 40 percent of all cases, all me chron, but we have today only 8 patients was only crime 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 if the 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 view,
8:26 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 merely 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 every one who tested positive for the disease. 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
8:27 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. some 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, 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
8:28 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 coven 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 a pulse with the beginning of a story that moves us and takes us along for the ride. it's all about the perspective. culture
8:29 pm
information. this is the w news and water d. w. made from mines. a animal i'm clever in and some of the smartest pigeons. their visual memory is outstanding. can you memorize $700.00 images and recall them at any time? for a pigeon, it's a piece of cake. to morrow today, in 60 minutes on d w. ah, we're all set to go beyond the obvious well,
8:30 pm

8:32 pm
it's a very close relationship monocle because i've lived here all my life. my school is just on the other side of the mountain here in the harbor where my kids also go to school. now i'm in the city is all about my previous life as well because the monocle racetrack is in the middle of the city. it's on my way to school. ah, do you cross the start finish line here and you can see the, the line painted, of course on the ground and you see are the starting grid here. so position is coming there. and then sometimes i get these flashbacks and think about how the whole city is transformed and then i was unfold position here a couple of times in a leading the way then and winning the race. nika, ross. there's one the legendary monaco grand prix, 3 times in a row from 2013 to 2015. he takes us for
8:33 pm
a ride around his home track and tells us about his life, old and new. the biggest day of his international racing career was november 27th, 2016. in the last race of the season. he clenched the formula one drivers world championship. it was the culmination of his international career. ah, when crossing the line, i knew that i was stopping to raise because i had thought about it a long time for 3 months before ready. once i was ahead in the champion to rattle wow, i really do manage to win this thing. it would be the right moment to move on because i had achieved everything i wanted to and, and it was time to, to take it another approach to life. so i had no idea what i was going to do after my career. and just one thing led to the next line, i made a promise that i wanted to do something where i can contribute largely to society,
8:34 pm
to other people. so nikko ross perry got involved in formula e, the new sustainable racing series, in which electric racing cars, do you get out on city racks around the world? an ideal combination for ross bands racing blood and sustainable entrepreneurial spirit. i'm a co owner. busy of formula and i always found the pity that around the formula erases, that they don't do more in terms of events. and therefore i thought a why it's such an opportunity. berlin raised, why don't we create this? is a tech technology festival around the rates in 2019 rosemary organized the 1st screen tech festival in a hanger f rylin's disused temple off airport. big business names from around the world network. here with the inventors and makers of green technologies and the future of mobility. daughter can time for this simply allow nation for innovative technologies. that's it. that is on this, i mean, i was able to indulge out in formula one. and now i can do so in sustainable
8:35 pm
technologies course. what? so it's a minute to midnight and time is running out of the fun. it's an exciting time in that field. and as a businessman, it's the field for me and my passion tightened in, but i was almost as wanted nima, hobby should decent price your foot, and you still have these innovative technologies might not be there, but also this massive positive contribution, right? you're in month, it's a win win by thought on the has has own. at the same time you can do great businesses and some ross back has a new passion. he calls himself a sustainable business man. he has founded a company and monaco that examines sustainable startups. if a young company convinces him he invests in their 1st steps and the world of green business, i really need to feel like enthusiastic when i see a startup, also with the idea that they're pursuing and, and the product that they're making like tear as the scooters that we see all over
8:36 pm
europe now another really a proud success story in the end and with tear it was a found who operationally was just absolutely excellent. and that's was going to come down to when creating a start up and scaling something like a and e scooter startup. and in the end, it proved to be right because operationally was just phenomenal. in the meantime, the berlin based t scooter maker has established itself as a global market leader, with a clever idea tear built its own scooters and developed an innovative energy supply system. when the battery runs down, it can just be replaced on the spot with a charged one. tier founder lawrence lumina, was always open to new and unconventional ideas. so why not sit down with a formula one world champion to talk about sustainable mobility? i had a dinner with him and i was, i was pretty impressed how, how, how he was looking at companies that you wouldn't expect from a former one driver who's trying to really be in an extreme sport to really think
8:37 pm
about companies in that way. i saw was very impressed and because he was coming from a very different background. but i really liked that we had a connection and he was, he said the cities would change. mobility is changing dramatically. he's a great ambassador for the company, but also in general for the industry of green tech and green mobility. my technology festival that i found the last year is on again. so check it out. we have big, big names, i end up as well, which i'm really proud of. you, president was enough on the google seo and real fast nevada flagler says if you wanna live in for an automated or so, what should i say? you could say hello world. hello audience. let's go live now to the world and even within just 3 years, nickel horsberg turned the green tech festival into an internationally renowned event in 2021. in addition to the base event in berlin, there was also
8:38 pm

8:39 pm
they put me next, the ag bob in the commercial bay. cool. and i was there in pop naked and dr. bon, you have to know very traditional german company owned by the government. and here's naked, an almost naked here in top. topless iggy pop sitting in the train and asked laughing at each other. that was like a 1st time ever bunch of on to take such a risk. and he usually gets other sports stars on board for his projects to for his him on for example, who caught the world's attention when he took part in the grueling global regatta. voluntary globe and drew attention to the destruction of the environment. a realized what an opportunity we have. because with our sports we have a phenomenal reach. so it's a perfect vehicle to use to generate impact, to encourage everybody was following us to join the movement with us.
8:40 pm
nicholas bags, name opens doors in sports, business and politics. ah, he has really made a credible conversion in terms of his personal attitude to mobility. ruined him, i said him from already paid for it, so we're missing a lot of it. we need people whose enthusiasm can help promote technological development and act as ambassadors or he can do that. that's not a formula. one driver can't change the world on his own, but together we can distribute those. i like what he does. if you look at everything he organizes, it is really impressive. fungi uses his fame to do the right thing. let's start on and i'm a contact card on file for you with a formula, one world champion and his image attract all sorts of prominent participants to the green tech festival. even pop stars sting showed up flu
