desperate need of relief. and for more i'm joined by professor toby escargots he has an epidemiologist and the director of the institute of public health at the sheraton a hospital here in berlin dr carter calls for the lockdown being extended are growing louder are they justify. unfortunately yes we could expect that the numbers are not going down over the christmas holidays and in new years the hospitals are full use of full and because we have a high rate of infection still going on these numbers won't go down so unfortunately there's no out of chance but to extend the lockdown now as we're going into this new year what about schools and kindergartens the should they be allowed to reopen. it's very difficult really to make this disease but i think with the constant infection rate and the hospitals being full that opening schools for a normal school days not possible so we definitely have to find different solutions
9:03 pm
for that so what would be the way forward at there that is remote learning going to be the foreseeable future of schooling or is there another way that they could safely reopen. well it's a communication of things steve vaccination has started as you have reported and we hope to number of people getting vaccinated are substantially increasing over the next weeks we have to learn to really that the locked on is is is working alternately and we have to maintain to see as minimal people as possible so that the lockdown actually is working and we get the numbers down we need to get these numbers down otherwise you will not see any relief for the hospital staff and any relief for the i.c.u. use well let's talk about that mass vaccination program because it's no secret that germany has had a bumpy start there the distribution of the vaccine is falling behind what was planned so how concerned are you about that situation. well we know since weeks to the number of scenes available norma's lee in the beginning of the end that's
9:04 pm
exactly what's happening and i do not know all the details but for sure you could have organized in a different way in other countries is certainly better other countries are worse so we definitely have to continue to think about how to improve the situation and to vaccine as many people as possible and what specifically do you think needs to be done there to make sure that as many people as possible can get the vaccine as soon as possible well have enough vaccines available 1st of all i think the test and those are ready to stuff it's ready and as soon as enough vaccines are available hopefully we will see that more people or people get vaccinated and what are germany's locked out exit plans i mean what is the way out of this in the end there's been now multiple lockdowns here it seems like they haven't worked we're now talking about an extension is there an end in sight. well in germany we have to understand with that we didn't really have the heart lockdown where we have to stay home what is called a few at 6 pm or so and we really cannot leave the homes in many of the states in
9:05 pm
germany so and we decided to leave christmas open a new us open to see friends and family up to 5 people from different households so that was in my opinion not a good decision so we definitely have to understand that we need to work together now to get these numbers down and then we can discuss what we can do to open public life hopefully as soon as possible a strong call there for a continued lockdown until they make is brought under control talk yes epidemiologist and the director of the institute of public health at the sheraton hospital thank you very much. and in france a travel is limited and a large gatherings are prohibited in an effort to limit contacts now police in western france are investigating how thousands of young people were able to join in on illegal raids as the number of coronavirus cases has reached. as the sun rose on saturday the police moved in hundreds of party goers were aidid
