1:03 pm
a great deal. so module improvements, but still pretty appalling conditions. and for the most part, they will spend yet another day looking out of roles of barbed wire and polish border guards and right police determined to make sure they do not cross over into the you. and as that knowledge sinks in that there is really no way forward. well that of course gives way to desperation. and on tuesday night there was another wednesday night rather another attempt to breach the board of defenses at a point 80 kilometers. also south of here, according to the polish defense ministry, several 100 people launching a sort of coordinated move with a decoy operation on one side, throwing stones to detract at distract the border guards at another point, trying to break through the fence, allegedly, with the help of the better solution border guards will that attempt failed. meanwhile, attempts are ongoing diplomatically to try to resolve this crisis to high level phone calls between chancellor merkel and alexander lucas shank of this week. ostensibly, according to the german side,
1:04 pm
to talk about making aid more accessible to these people. but the estonian foreign minister on wednesday night said that alexander lucas shan't go, had any effect made clear his terms for ending this crisis. he said that he wants sanctions stopped and lifted and he wants to be recognised as the legitimate leader of his country. well, sanctions are going ahead as we understand it, and it seems highly unlikely that the european union will change its mind about a 2020 election in bella. luce widely considered a sham follow a brutal crack down the opposition, all of which leaves alex lucas shanker. if you think about it, looking somewhat high and dry, he is a man, according to the european council for foreign relations, who is if effectively still engaged, existential battle for his own political survival. and a man who probably doesn't care what happens to the people trapped on his side of the border now. okay, just wait for one moment. there. joanna,

1:06 pm
away. whether that's one flight or 2, that's a lot of people. it might be a military transport. we don't know. and we also don't know whether they may be further repatriation flights laid on it, which more people may sign up to be part of cs. it could be part of a trend that represents and easing. but remember that all the people over there an awful lot of them remain extremely determined to find some way to cross into the european union. that's why they're there. that's what they came that to do. and equally remember that it remains extremely uncertain just what alexander lucas shank may be willing to do. ok, joe, and how they're reporting live from the poland beller is forward to thank you very much indeed, jonah, and a little later in the program, we will cross one of 2 correspondents, any rock for more on those repack creations that will be at the bottom of the era now armenia says the russian mediated cease far with as a by sean is mostly holding falling violence there. earlier this week,

a corridor and by implication, something it would control but russia, which mediated last year ceasefire. and has peacekeeping troops on the grounds in the going to car back, and armenia has played down that language and look for him. come clear. reassuring we are getting close to concrete decisions which are 1st and foremost based on the notion that countries will retain sovereignty over roads passing through their territory. as if by john and armenia accused each other of starting this latest round of fighting. but what is clear is that sticking points over those agreements signed in that piece deal last year, need urgently to be resolved. robin 1st year walker al jazeera tbilisi. clinton was still a heads, only use our including brittany, the latest on the disaster unfolding in western canada zone for

1:11 pm
europe. once again, it's the epicenter of the croon of ours pandemic. even before winter, fully takes hold. in germany's oldest christmas market interests and traders wonder if the virus was once again steal the festive season and their profits this momentous moment. i think the problem is that the trade is feel a bit abandoned. we didn't know what's going to happen. are we going to open up the rules going to be changed? and yes, on sleepless nights we think about the goods that are ordered. no one gives any information about what is going to happen. and when germany's fault, waive is raging presenting and only emergency for the parties that form the next governing coalition. the outgoing chancellor. should this star wanting to give me the panoramic situation in germany as dramatic. i can't say in any other way than the 4th waivers hitting our country with full force. default wave has tightened its grip on neighboring belgium. in response,
1:12 pm
the government is extending the use of face mass and again, making more people work from home. yes, fostering the 1st observation is that the alarm signals are flashing red. we see that we have a very high number of infections in our country. we also see that the number of beds occupied in intensive care has doubled in a week. and we have crossed the red line with 500 beds occupied. in the czech republic, where deline infections are hidden, new records proposed come and restrictions on the unvaccinated, half triggered protests by large, unmasked crowds in prague. did glance at her said that i am at this scar. the situation is truly dramatic. i am again asking every one to get vaccinated. really selfish are these people who don't get vaccinated and end up in hospitals. i endangering healthcare for other citizens of a fear keenly felt in many parts of europe, where people are bracing for another winter of uncertainty. brown got up there. i'll 0 with
1:13 pm
a new wave of cove at 19 sweeping across europe. governments are scrambling to responds. germany's parliament is deciding all new measures after fairly infections reached their highest level since the start of the pandemic, around 2 thirds of the country's population still hasn't been vaccinated. i'm in france. president macro has re introduced restrictions including the compulsory wearing of masks for children and elementary schools. and the requirements for covert pass to access public places since they've been extended into next summer. will the netherlands, they've returned to a partial locked in on saturday. restaurants and shops to close early and crowds are banned from sporting events. the country is also running out of coven 19 test. kids will. joining us now from amsterdam to discuss, this is the freeze face science and medical journalists, covering government policies on coven 19 across the you. it's good to have you with
1:14 pm
this oneal, just even use. we've got vaccines, which we didn't have at the start of this. we've got treatments which we didn't have at the start of the panoramic, so why our case is still rising. yeah, well. busy i think most governments in across or are they expected and their advisors as well to to the curb. the curves with with vaccinations, but they've been surprised by the extent to which the virus can still spread among the vaccinated in on top of the infection agents. so just that kind of an issue now it is an issue and it is this a dos of options. you're the left for the governments because what do they need to do to tackle this night? there are, of course, the hard measures like lock signs, but people quite right. they feel that they've suffered enough for the great gauge
1:15 pm
that the governments are indeed very reluctant to do more than the minimal. but that's their dilemma now as well in the netherlands, and i think it's in most countries across this continent. is there been late in re imposing a stricter general measures just like our partial look down. and a lot of experts are still doubting where that is, will be enough to get the repetition number under one. again to get the curve down . and they're discussing additional measures that we are discussing. now, department has been discussing to g, so people will only get into cinema or a bar, or a museum with a pass showing that you've been vaccinated or recovered and no longer tested. but critics day was dead, only works with a low transmission, and the transmission is very high now. so it won't help us a lot on this short medium term only in the long term and trying to get more people
1:16 pm
vaccinated. it will take like weeks before that helps. so the problem is the and vaccinated people isn't it one part of it. i think it's a combination of investment people and the high transmission so. busy we're all responsible in a way that this the on vaccinated people who end with the greatest of respect to teaching up all the medical resources that are putting the strains on public services. so give it a month, is it not time to start looking? don't the unvaccinated as they're doing, and austria. yeah that's, that's not that much discuss the government. and i think they're rightly are very afraid of even increasing even more increasing tripler zation in the industry and society and. and as i said, it's also been said by the data analysts said, okay, most of the people in the hospitals are, are affectionate. it and,
1:17 pm
and relatively it's, it's a lot more, but also quite a lot of vulnerable people that are w vaccinated fully vaccinated are being taken up and out into the hospital. so we're not done. and the particular area within where they like weeks the next. so our mission is what we're started the restrictions last saturday. we'll take 2 or 3 weeks before we see the result in the hospitals will probably get into the red zone in the most hospitals before that. so it won't help us now. maybe for the rest of the winter. it's it, it, we needs more people get fed to get vaccinated. and that's all the difference is also with across europe. like in france or in austin austria front is doing pretty well actually. now the vaccination rates are pretty diverse. in germany is it's lower than in netherlands or in denmark, it's even higher. so that also depends on what you, what measures you're taking,
1:18 pm
what are that are proportional sort of against and vaccinated people. so how much of this is done to politics then? because it really seems like the politics of protecting people feelings is impacting on the well being of, of the public that people say we don't, we want to protect our rights and don't want to be getting vaccinated. and that's having an impact on people to you don't think it's time for governments to, to stop worrying about hurting people's feelings and actually take some action that's going to knock this virus on the head was indeed a sentiments very strong here in the netherlands. it has been historically as well . we have a very strong voice of the particular people from the more stricter christian regions they have been against. vaccinations are obliged vaccinations. and now there's a lot of strong like individual right people and they're very focusing on
1:19 pm
individual rights. whereas public health is also one of the founding rights of our society. so indeed we should do more and that we should discuss how i don't see. busy a lockdown just perfect native b unvaccinated people coming in in the redlands, but they're still becoming strict trans, stricter and but, and what i think they should become more honest about it because they're really afraid of that sentiment and they're making it more strict and stricter for these and vaccinated people as well saying that they are not so and people that really get take that anymore and more. oh, i'm sorry, i'm sorry to jump and how much if there's just one final question, how much of this a reluctance to get vaccinated would you say is don't see to all the, let's say the drama when the astrazeneca vaccine was roll dates. and there was a lot of criticism from, from top political officials across europe about how effective this
1:20 pm
u. k. developed vaccine would be. do you think that a lot of the, the politicking around that has impact seeds, people's willingness to get vaccinated across mainland europe. i think it's part of it. i think it's a combination of all these things that were this. also these stories about the m r n a is experimental. there are, does very vague assumptions and stories about people not being, becoming, being able to get pregnant again. and then on top of that, there were all the strong bose just stories and the way that was handled. i think it's a mix up a lot of people who just don't really care even though they're they don't think the think i might get the sexy later. and that's so sad because people end up and asked about and said i should have taken it. ok. you have to freeze, great to get your thoughts on your analysis there. thank you so much for joining us for months to time. we appreciate it. thank you. so korea has recorded its highest
