4:30 am
ah, hello guys, this is the 77 percent. the platform for africa. you'd be beat issues and share ideas. you know, or this channel, we are not afraid to happen. delicate the african population is growing. and young people clearly have the solution. that future belongs to you is 77 percent now every weekend on d. w with
4:31 am
yourself on the highway a man and man a really money. i'm with america. i the wednesday. yeah.
4:32 am
ah, i and have a monday normally in food, along with a go for them. monday must be monday i live with the corona virus must go on. but how we does that have family in chile, a country where over 90 percent of the population have been double vaccinated. and
4:33 am
since december, children from the age of 3, have also been getting the job plus an interview with epidemiologist to be as could what lies ahead for 2022. what developments are we likely to see this coming year? the only chrome variant is spreading rapidly across europe. infection rates are increasing at an unprecedented pace. but you might not know that looking at the streets of downtown berlin, to the dismay of some locals. unless they managed to get more people vaccinated, the numbers will go out that are for paramedics. and so it by the cities, emergency services are already under strain done by spam. yes. locked during the very 1st to lockdown. we set up a crisis team to put together a pandemic on the hot. here. we also have the option of the local volunteer
4:34 am
emergency tina alamos absolute and we have concepts or dealing with higher infection rates within the department side. and deborah had owned more than 80 percent of his colleagues across the city have been vaccinated, but they still take extra precautions yet. has anyone entering an official department building? does a self tested test to push the idea of getting away from it all is tempting. but whatever destination you choose, there is no escaping the corona virus, especially now as omicron spreads across the globe, we met people who decided to board a plane anyway. well, the tourism and aviation industry's struggle to recover from the pandemic. $400.00 a jumbo jet is approaching the tarmac at palma de majorca
4:35 am
airport. after months of lock downs and travel restrictions german tourists are again flocking to the spanish island. demand is huge for getaways in the sun. people are tired of the pandemic and eager for a change of scenery for felix ebbing. a. that means hopeless on the horizon, after a year and a half on a reduced hours furlow scheme. as the pandemic curtails commercial air traffic. many planes and pilots were grounded as early as the school will. not because of coven, i spent 15 months on furlough, and off work. that's a long time. by the longest i've ever been away from fly. so it's a very special feeling to be back on board and back in a plane. so full speed, it had then, far from it. army kron has brought a p landing for passengers and airlines alike. fears surrounding the more
4:36 am
infectious new variant prompted a range of countries to tighten their entry restrictions again, practically overnight. tens of thousands of flights were cancelled over the holiday season world wide. here at the airport in berlin, feelings are also mixed. these passengers are checking in for a flight to 10 a reef where visitors are looking forward to sun and spring like temperatures and rapidly rising infection rates due to the army kron variant. and we'll sort of, if i'd known what would happen, i probably wouldn't have booked this trip. eyes of a shyness mister bolt i've taught them is still going to be nice and we just needed the break. yeah, horrible vend us in october. so if we'd known this in october, we would never book this trip a good, a sobering development for the airlines still just recovering from the original slump. and for the pilots and flight attendants,
4:37 am
to at the start of the pandemic, germany's biggest carrier lufthansa had to be rescued by a 9000000000 euro government bailout industry. experts are now concerned that army kron could put a damper on the rebound. the sector had seen over the past months, reminisce, mission and if we don't get this situation under control quickly, the industry is looking at additional losses in the billions. we've almost indiana and the airlines would have to massively reduce capacity and continued to try to sit things out also. and companies that can't stay afloat under those conditions might need another round of government am alina finance young chrome? the renewed uncertainty is also affecting holiday makers on the ground. take thailand, a favorite destination for many europeans and winter. in november, it eased travel restrictions for visitors, but now the rules have been tightened again. tourists are again required to provide
4:38 am
documentation including cobit tests and vaccination certificates. the pandemic has been an enormous challenge for a german hotel owner high off on keller. he runs an iron vader retreat on the island of who cat is. is it to be honest? it's still too complicated for and most people aren't even aware of what's actually required when they books who come visit. the only find that out later on. the most money for hotels that often means customers cancel their bookings or delay their travel plans. the entire sector from hotels to airlines and travel agents is feeling the effects loop hands a pilot fail x ebbing are still hopes that the ation industry will get back on an even keel soon. in the meantime, he's continuing his sessions in a flight simulator to maintain his skills 1000.
4:39 am
when will things go back to normal? if ever a question people around the world are wondering about what to epitome urologists reckon we asked to be as could from belinda shelley t university hospital hello. hello mr. quote. thanks for your time. there again, you're welcome. yes, yes i yeah. we've been living with the pandemic for 2 years now. we have on hand, at 1st, i thought we just have to be patient for a few weeks and then it would be over tab. did you feel the same way? oh, or did you expect the pandemic to last for months or even years of am one after what? al, so i added on 9 as it was somebody on, you know, i didn't expect it to last this long either. normally you can stop a virus from transmitting and by isolating infected individuals and the population . and that's what we didn't even have us viaz gustavo, this month. and this of the trajectory this took was something that was very difficult to predict at the start. again, some unsung guns near fall. susie,
4:40 am
so the way things developed did surprise all of us including me of course. and once ali rushed had some to socially speaking to leash. i'm. i'm had asked him, how have we learned anything over the past 2 years about which strategies were successful and what would you do differently in the future on a bathroom and the trees. if you get down to the vic, we've learned a lot and continue to learn more every day this month. and that's why it's important for us to realize that we're facing a global public health crisis saga inflation. the virus doesn't respect borders lives as you can not all completely isolated. again, communication with the general public has to be clear and direct lately simon's class. i'm as discuss 50 that something very important that we've learned when you can't just produce a vaccine in some corner of your life and distributed globally. ideally, you have to find companies in each region to produce and distributed locally. and once the situation improves, which it will at some point, will have to remember that guessing i see in stuff out when the 1st vaccines became
4:41 am
available around a year ago. every went felt pretty optimistic chimera. but soon new variance gave rise to new worries and concerns like defiant, say about which vaccine protects you best against the new variance, ny of evils, valley anthem dot lafayette not like new data keeps coming in. and the situation will certainly continue to evolve results design does at the moment, it seems that the m r n, a booster vaccines do lower the risk of developing severe disease that they can't prevent it entirely up, which obviously nobody ever saw that applies to the delta variant and as the latest data suggests, also for the army, kron burial valiant as high as that. so the vaccines do provide a kind of baseline protection. it's perhaps less than against the original strain or the alpha variant, but they offer very good protection against severe disease. what's forced me and
4:42 am
after a booster, that seems to hold true for alma crohn as well again, to, to get it. and does it like in the way that the vaccines are being distributed globally, is quite simply unfair. to what extent is this vaccine nationalism responsible for the fact that the pandemic is still ongoing? judge good in that aspect does play a decisive role vendor yet shawn, if we were at the point of delivering boosters everywhere in the world, when the risk of new variance emerging would be significantly lower toyed leash, he would see that. and if we can't manage to comprehend and address the pandemic as a global challenge for, it will continue to spread around the world lighter. that's part of the problem open owns on to and this is help me to problematic. russell satellite needs to happen so that we can look back at all this in a years time and say, okay, the pandemic over for bi. you're missing the respect for we have to take it seriously and be prepared to respond to an evolving situation in amish. we need to
4:43 am
be prepared for the likelihood that there will be new vaccines even which again, should be made available to everyone. so it won't even, and it's vital that we fight this pandemic on a global level. became that includes consequences not always directly linked to the viruses, like mental health and the economic impact on certain parts of society. we have to consider the effect on children, the elderly and other groups. we have to address their needs and those impacts to and be proactive in addressing them so that in a year or 2 we don't find ourselves facing a new situation involving long term harms that are in indirect result of the virus and electric. thank you mr. coin to leave a site, which is chance is violet. ah, in some parts of germany, children are returning to school despite rising infection rates. but in
4:44 am
chile, many parents have been homeschooling, their children in hopes of protecting them from the corona virus. that's why the country launched a major campaign to vaccinate children about a month ago. schools in chile are currently on summer break, but pupils are due to return to classrooms by march at the latest. before christmas elisa and matilda wrote a letter to santa claus. their biggest wish no more homeschooling. so their parents gave them a somewhat unusual bonus. christmas present. girls were of the get vaccinated. right. oh wow. little elisa need some encouraging women. oh, why not? we already said yes to getting vaccinated. so mosques on, let's go. oh
4:45 am
oh, oh, andre moraga. then cecilia, now bona, have taken time off work to escort their daughters to one of the mo bile vaccination centers in la serena, a city in the north of the country. this one is located next to a famous lighthouse. the borrow monumental a p c r test center has also been set up here to detect people already infected with the corona virus as quickly as possible. 9 year old matilda is the 1st to get her jap. but her little sister isn't at all keen on the idea but with encouragement from her parents and the promise of an ice cream afterwards . it's all over in a couple of seconds. oh,
4:46 am
look at some of them familiar. we've talked about it together because it's a decision we have to make as a family model as parents. it's what we want for out children. glinda, it's about their save in my yard. that's why we went ahead with a even though our little one wasn't happy, it affects the health of all of us, so we all have to take care of each other. okay, so that's why we did it. animal them. after the jab, they wait half an hour, but both kids are doing fine. were you nervous? yes. why? and by gaining it was the 1st time i got a vaccine williams with thank i. did it hurt? no. do you want more children to get back unaided? yes. why, again, it's been 2 years already. we wanted to finally be over the rest of the hanger. jessica more? no. so don't know if we want them to see their relatives again. my,
4:47 am
the mentally, the kids haven't seen their grandparents with their uncles and aunts for a long time. something tikwa had on the it were us. now there are finally vaccines thiel, so from here on, we're all safe trouble. city i give up. when i look what i gave them over the hill, currently and chalet more than 44000000 vaccine doses have been administered. around 90 percent of adults have received a 2nd dose. in early december 2021. the country also started vaccinating children as young as 3 way the under secretary of health says the vaccine drive is a success on d. give some, but that, that i think though, might, for the children themselves, an infection is often asymptomatic as we saw. but we want to prevent the virus from being transmitted to the elderly. my god, who we already know are the most vulnerable group. my son, he just at the same time, will that with kept in mind that school resumes in march. i'm up on the seat is
4:48 am
enough. so by then we'll be able to say that this group is double vaccinated to los he has as buddha, the family can now go home with the renewed peace of mind. the sisters are looking forward to seeing their grandparents and their friends from school again. no science correspondence, derek williams has been following the progress of chiles. vaccine roll out, though it's not yet dominant. the highly contagious on the chrome variant is now on the rise in chile to the discovery and spread of new mutations is an additional issue of growing importance for avi. was world wide o disassembled analysis, the blurry tree distinguish between variance. since the announcement that south african scientists had identified the new variance that the w h o has dug,
4:49 am
amr crohn, a few people have asked how they were able to do it. so today, let's take a closer look at a, at a absolutely groundbreaking technology that in the last 30 years or so has changed the life sciences really more than any other gen, no mac sequencing. now, like living organisms, viruses carry around all the information to make a new virus in their genetic code. in the case of sars covey to, that's a long strip of coiled r n. a made up of around $30000.00 chemical sub units called a nucleotides. together they encode for the $29.00 proteins that are produced in an invaded cell to make more copies of sars go be to. now if that code changes a process that we call mutation,
4:50 am
it can therefore also change how the proteins are structured. what the w h o calls variance of concern are mutated versions of the virus where changes in the code have made its proteins more effective in some way. so to distinguish between variance in a lab, all you have to do is read the genetic code in the viruses in a sample on it's different and it's identifiable for, for every variant reading and genetic code sounds simple, but developing the systems to do it was not we've, we've only recently improved the process to a point where it can be performed quickly and accurately enough to do things like a detect and track virus variance. as they spread the crude generation of systems
4:51 am
and cold, high throughput sequencers, they've only been available commercially for about 15 years. and detecting viral variance is, is just one thing they can do. the ability to detect genetic similarities and differences in species and, and individuals has impacted fields from evolutionary studies to personalized madison and really fundamental ways in many countries, people who want to go to restaurants, museum, so crowded outdoor events have to provide proof of that kind of it statist by a vaccination, negative test, or recovery, and many countries, including austria, italy and israel have introduced covet cos, pulls as has argentina. our porter, alejandro diblasio, took a tour of boy in his iris to see how the system is faring
4:52 am
with it. summer afternoon when the site it's done to have fun, but now to help on you need to call the bus for the 1st step on our tour takes us to a very big event. a crucial football fixture. barocha central is hosting kil, makes in a local playoff to decide entry into the 1st division. fans are keen to share their excitement, but authorities hope they won't be spreading the virus. i say, dr. are there any melinda? it, dad doing? joshua is our leader. what do you think of the coven pass? gunter, italian. it's great. we have 3 kids at home, and of course i've had my 2nd shot, jojo meant to shut dingle, charlottesville and elsie boy go, now we're all vaccinated,
4:53 am
all of us. oh, i forgot, i guess is vexed. argentinians suffered under one of the hardest loc downs world wide. the restrictions ment, dramatic economic consequences for many now the majority of people are vaccinated and the death rate is going down. the province of went aside ace requires proof of vaccination for large, open air events and indoor locations. some fans aren't allowed into the stadium. goopy now you're being denied entry because you don't have a pass. i made them a buffet. we've got one but the phone, batteries empty. yeah. now what i did does is he my video lab and then she'll try turning it on again. maybe it'll work that up, but she's backed. yeah, yeah. i know i went on before this police officer tells bands they won't get in without a cobra health pass,
4:54 am
but checks don't seem strictly enforced. did they ain't nobody your help pass? no, no. yes they do. and what did they want to do? that they don't care that much here, but it's important. yes. we continue onward to our little gay. another suburb of buenos aires. we're paying a visit to a fitness center. what is the response to the coven passed out? you? good. like there's always a few of them who don't want to, but when you have a word with them, they appreciate it in everyone's interest to be sure what at all what do you think of the past to enter jim? he sent me about his a. oh, now when he, when does it seems to be an effective set up his in again, nasa, but i'll be coming here a lot. see, because i know that every one is vaccinated. i am our next stop is low. must they zamora on the southern outskirts of went,
4:55 am
oh saudis, it's reportedly home to one of the best burger places in town. the employee taking our order asked to see a coping passport. correct? how do customers react? anybody? i don't know. it varies in a 1000000 e, some people behave well, but others make a fuss and get very angry or even violent math. and then c, as in alpha, they feel that their personal liberty is more important than government regulations . or the general health of the country is the only diarrhea with omar you get all sorts yeah. by you get some people who won't comply and then leave high, but when okay enough and no, but some people start arguing and are nasty to me. would be in law, need that, that have been my. once you take a seat at your table, you're allowed to remove the mask and talk into your meal. out on the streets in the open air. there is no mask requirement. they could put your
4:56 am
thoughts on the cobra, past requirement for bars and that anybody's a member of him i'm vaccinated and i think it's a good thing and he says he's okay luck. it seems to be our only option to you after law. when you come on it, i feel sorry for people who don't want to get vaccinated. we're not a fair, but i don't want to get infected by people at the next table i. i've shown consideration towards them by being vaccinated myself. i loaded all but i was going on. if i go down to my denied this just beginning when the site is lately made. so phone battery has been run out. i need they go with passport to visit more pops. boom. ah ah, with
