2:02 pm
since the 3rd of the population hasn't yet been vaccinated. on thursday, the lower house of parliament approved new restrictions. let's get more on all of this now from out there was dominic cane. you joins us that live from berlin, so just days out of imposing restrictions on unvaccinated people in austria. now the whole country is going to lock down. yeah, you have to look at what's happening in austria through the prism of these ever upward trending figures. adrian, the reality for many austrians is that it has been a sliding scale. almost that one week there's been one set of restrictions, then the next week, more restrictions, and now we're into full lockdown. clearly the reason for this is because of the incidence of cove in many parts of austria is in 4 digits more than a 1000 per 100000 of population will. that is a very considerable number. and full,
2:03 pm
many politicians in austria right now. it's too much and they say that even though people are being vaccinated, they say that, that the problem is such that they have to lock down. remember that austria is one of those countries where around 2 thirds of the population has been vaccinated, but that still leaves a 3rd who have not. and yes, of course, that include the 3rd who have not includes children. but it also includes a large group of adults, people for whom the vaccine has been freely and readily available for many months indeed. and yet they have refused to have the vaccine. the point to make is that the scientists emetics and to do the ministers in austria say effectively, that the numbers that they see, the numbers of people coming down with cove, it every day, the vast majority of them are the unvaccinated, and it's to them that they were originally trying to target the measures, but now they say the problem has become so big that only a national lockdown,
2:04 pm
which in 1st in his 10 days but could be extended to 20 days, is enough right now. and then clearly moving to forcing everyone to have a vaccine by fair in february of next year. well, that shows you quite how seriously the medics and ministers in vienna are, are taking covered right now. and is that the but the situation in germany to where also at the thought of the population is, is yet to be vaccinated in the countries health. but as the says that, that germany is, is in the midst of an emergency. yeah, this point here is similar sorts of fractions of the population. one 3rd in austria and vaccination, one 3rd in germany, unvaccinated in australia, it's a few $100000.00. we're talking about in germany, it's potentially 15000000 adults who remain un vaccinated. now some of those people may well be people who have recovered from an initial burst of,
2:05 pm
of cove it and have and have to wait a 6 month period before they can themselves be vaccinated. but it has to be we shouldn't assume in use, but a healthy assumption would be that the vast majority of the unvaccinated have not had cove it and don't want the vaccine. and those of the people to whom ministers medics and scientists, particularly those who spoke this morning, that's not i've either from the robert cock institute, the head of the agency that tabulate all the information related to cove it and the caretaker, health minister yan, from their rhetoric as it was directed pointedly at them. but the point here is that when mister spawn talks of an emergency situation, that's a little bit of politicking going on there because the lower house of parliament yesterday, the wonders talk yesterday passed new laws. one of which was to say that the emergency situation, these are the covert which has existed for many, many, many months now will that will expire in a week's time. so he's politicking a little bit there when he talks about an emergency because his party doesn't like
2:06 pm
what was passed by parliament yesterday. but in terms of the reality for all the germans who were watching the pronouncements of mister spon and mister vila, it's not what parliament passed yesterday. it was a ministers, the minister presidents of the prime ministers of the states and angle immacule and all have shots. what they agreed yesterday evening, which is decisive. that is, that the new metric which will be used to determine what sort of measures will be brought in. that's the number of the incidence of a 7 days of people with cove. it being put into hospital and the ruling there is pretty simple. what they're going to do is they will require different states in different places at different times, but all will have to, to tighten their measures and bring in what's called the 2 g rule in germany. it's vague illegal. what that means is that anyone who wants to go to any public place will have to be able to prove that they have either recovered from the, the virus recently all that they have been vaccinated. and yet further,
2:07 pm
stringent rules might be not that far away, which would be where would be the 2 g plus, where you'd have to have proved to be, have recovered, or to be vaccinated, and to have a negative test. the one thing they haven't done yet here in germany is they have not followed the austrian pattern with loc. dan's. but it is worth making the point that they are following almost as like a mirror image, but still in slow motion, the way austria went 1st, they tinkered with the rules for the unvaccinated, then they brought in this to g rule. now the austrians have brought in lock down. the question for many in germany right now is, will they also here in germany, be going in to lockdown out there is thomas cane reporting live from berlin. dominic, many thanks. india's government has made a dramatic, you turn as announced that it's withdrawing 3 controversial farm laws. the legislation had triggered nationwide protests that lasted more than a year. the government introduced the measures say that they'd modernize the
2:08 pm
agriculture sector, but farmers said that the reforms would hurt their livelihoods. now, prime minister landrum audrey is so telling them to go home. i'd met up today. i have come to tell you and the entire nation you that we have decided to repeal the 3 laws summoning we will conclude the gotten the short process of repealing the laws during the parliamentary session that begin to the end of this month. revenue. today i'm asking all my former friends who had been protesting nick to return to your homes, your farm land 0 and your family is number one out from alzheimer's poverty natal, who's at a protest site. when the ask us a few jelly, i'd one of the trip sites where farmers have been protesting for nearly a year. what you see around me are temporary structures they set up last year when they decided to camp out until the government revoked the 3 agriculture laws that pharmacy lead them was all and benefit big corporations. now, earlier today,
2:09 pm
prime minister in the ranger mode, the made a sudden announcement doing what the formulas had been asking for nearly a you. but these formulas. and so just to say they are not willing to go back yet. it is a big tree. they have been congratulating each other, and some of them have even been busting firecrackers, but they don't necessarily trust the government. they're waiting for the parliament to officially revoke these laws. they also point out that the prime minister in his announcement today missed a few critical points. for example, on nearly $700.00 farm was have died during the course of the protest. the other issue is the issue of guaranteeing farmers a minimum price for they produce it something farmers have been pushing for, but did not find mention in the prime minister's speech. the announcement comes at a critical political juncture to states that most of these farm was in protest as come from that is punjab and not their probation are headed for critical state elections. early next year to day is also interestingly,

2:11 pm
there's been around 180 people that they have treated in 40 minutes away from here at another hospital. we've heard that there are 3 men that had made it across the board and have been in the forest for a considerable amount of time and the receiving medical conditions. the activists have called media to attend because they believe that the board of force will turn up and push those people back across the border. that's been main concern of activists and humanitarian workers here. but another news, the russian president vladimir putin as had a phone conversation with his brother, russian counterpart, alexander lucas shanker, where he stressed that minsk and the european union should be at work and cooperation. and also the ro by the russian president, alexander lucas shanker, had a phone conversation with germany as the angler. merkle where he proposed, he offered humanitarian gateway from bella, rouge, to germany, for 2000 refugees. and in turn by the roost, would return around 5000. that were willing to their home countries that this was rejected by the european union and,
2:12 pm
and germany. but we've also heard that the british are to send more troops here. we understand in the last month there were 10 that were helping polish authorities with the board. and now they're going to send another 100 nice and clear why poland is seeking help from the u. k. the u. k. a not in the european union. and also the u. k. doesn't have a fence along its borders because it's an island. meanwhile, there's been a powerful intervention. i said from the ears commissioner for human rights. absolutely very powerful in some cases, scathing. now what she has done is she said that the, the picked, such a situation is sustained by a narrative of security. she's criticize the state of emerging that emergency that's been brought in here alongside the border and that seclusion. so now we've been reporting about, that's occlusions on that stretches along the border that compet encompasses around a $180.00 villages and towns. and in that seclusion on age,
2:13 pm
workers are not allowed to go in journalist and not to like to go in to the con, get up right next to the border to let you know what the polish authorities are doing to keep people out. know what she has said her that it's or has harmful consequences, an agent and it stops agencies from providing humanitarian assistance. and she also said the stopping media from going into that zone are it stops or limits much needed transparency and accountability and journals should be true poor from across that border, freely and safely. now she also said that this policy of pushback, pushing people back across the board, as i mentioned earlier earlier, and she's had consistent reports of people coming into the country, crossing that border, seeking asylum, and some needing urgent medical attention and been sent back. and she said that this was an acceptable but she praised local human rights organizations and agencies that i've been trying to help people that crossed that border. but she also added that there is a palpable atmosphere of hate and fear towards people that also that surrounds
2:14 pm
humanitarian aid. and that follows a group of doctors here who were giving age to people that crossed at border and their vehicles were attacked. and she urged the government here to investigate that . but she also said that that state of emergency that, that exclusions on shouldn't be extended or once it ends in december. now the government here is looking to extend the exclusions on or although the state of emergency. oh will end, but they want to maintain the exclusions on stopping agencies and journalist going again and as she has spoken and very tough and strong to and against them. as soon as i said, beg, they're in, hein, oscar on the polish side of the border with baylor roost and said many thanks indeed. warrior keith is a specialist on the legal and political aspects of migration. he says he has no doubt the poland and the e. u of breaking international law. i think we have to treat them as if they are asylum seekers until the point of which they failed to reply for asylum. i'm sure
2:15 pm
the door is very, very clear on this. people are entitled to answer to cross over to answer country and then and on to only at that point, they are obliged to express their desire to apply for asylum. so i think at this point we have to treat them as if they're asylum seekers, even if they were migrants, they would be a case that the way that they've been treated is morally terrible and audio video legal. but yes, at this point i think asylum seekers is the only sensible sentence is not legal for them to on iraq, frances, all to deploy as they have gone, as i mean at the moment on the polish border, i apologize but, but there are 5 armed people for every one, man, woman and child who's attempting to her and poland, and no, it's not legal, it's, it's absolutely legal. does come to light that are in conversation with anglo michael arms. alexander lucas shanker offered that they should be 2000 people allowed to enter. poland, a lot, 20 you through a humanitarian corridor on the european union has dismiss thigh. they are out of hand. yes. the european union is acting absolutely illegal and it knows ease. the
