5:15 am
now some breaking news before we go reports from taiwan say a train has day railed in a tunnel in the east of the island 1st responders say several people are believed to be dead and many others are injured we'll bring you more in our next bulletin ok that's it for now more headlines coming up in 45 minutes to. the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. has the rate of infection been developing what does the latest research say. information and context the coronavirus update 19. on t.w. . what keeps us in shape what makes us sick and how. my name is dr carlson the i talk to medical experts. watch them at work.
5:16 am
and they discuss what you can do to improve your health. stay tuned and let's try to stay good shape. was it a mistake to send our children back to school. the number of infections is rising rapidly among kids and what do we do we prioritize teachers to get vaccinated sooner children are still at the back of the queue. but kids can also get sick with coated 19 and seriously 2 what's more they can also develop what's known as long coated meaning they can suffer long term damage regardless. whether they have shown
5:17 am
symptoms after their initial infection or not their crucial age were development it could impact the rest of their lives. so are we doing enough to protect our children because there could be much more extinct for the young in this pandemic than we have so far wanted to admit. welcome to cover $1000.00 special i want to cajones good to have you with us now we all know the feeling of being out of breath after going up the stairs for example that's quite normal usually but not in times of covert 19 and not when kids are affected what does long colwich do to them a condition that keeps covered 900 patients down for weeks even months beyond the initial illness an italian study on long coded children surveyed kids and teenagers 5 months after being diagnosed with coverage 19 only 42 percent of them had fully
5:18 am
recovered 36 percent showed 102 long covert symptoms while 22 percent showed at least 3 sometimes symptoms such. sleep disorders breathing difficulties muscle and joint pain plus exhaustion headaches and an over a lack of concentration basically all symptoms that ultimately stop kids from being kids full of energy and life frances simpson is a lecturer in psychology and counseling at coventry university in scarborough she also co-founded the campaign long coded kids and she joins us now good to have you with us you and your children had 19 last year when did you know it was covert 19 given the testing was still scarce. not really a question we became ill at the beginning of march and at the time of the sea that the narrative was very simple about you know. that there was either. a flea
5:19 am
like thing with a cough and a temperature or. you know if you went through colorful all that you would under you know in hospital being by places so when we got this you know i can tell with the range of symptoms that was like a cult my door so had different symptoms my son has this is again initially you know i didn't really put 2 and 2 together. and it was only when i lost a sense and take all of the time that was an unknowns. but when i do that in iran at the time of the pandemic it was the most. the most or time in google and i thought ok going to into together i think this must be current of iris . and i tried to speak to doctors about it they said oh no that's not so it was very it was very difficult to get people to actually police that was that that was that was that of course everybody was googling back then because we knew so little
5:20 am
about it so when did you realize that you might actually suffer from what we now know as long cove it. so i have for me i just didn't seem to make a recovery so that wasn't to kill your time i think after about 6 weeks i had a brief recovery. and then i was ill again but it felt very you know described as like a roller coaster of different symptoms coming and going. and the occasional day to day and then worse they just felt like i wasn't really getting better and it felt such an unknown kind of illness because of all these to my daughter was really call it for 6 weeks. and then she. didn't really get better she to kind of continue but she. you know north korea and other symptoms i mean just
5:21 am
like i thought just so we just saw pictures of your daughter and your son just now as you were telling us. we just say that what we now know is long cold it that it manifests itself differently with children than with adults. well we've done some research with long kids and we've we've sort of stumbling that actually a lot of the symptoms are very similar. but children tend to have an increased amount of gastric issues but then we have found children and do not with you know appendicitis you know or our scientists we see quite a lot they like symptoms you know the employment shape multisystem disorder we see similar symptoms to that but we're also seeing. new to us psychiatric symptoms you know so things like. seizures so
5:22 am
there's a real gummer of different symptoms and children kind of manifest differently and so there's a lot of the same symptoms that are out there are certain features that seem to be in late in the previous cohort there is of course still very little known about long cold even with adults and that is probably why you co-founded a contained known as long as the kids what are you hoping to achieve with this contain. well it's both a campaign group under support me. so i joined forces with sammy mcchrystal and he was the founder and we joined forces in october because you know we were part of different support groups and campaign groups for the adult community and realize that there was this there was just a lack of anything for children and the children not it was just being locked out completely of all discussions so we came together really to to provide agree or
5:23 am
parents a difficult place to be quite often the parents are elam's out untouchability who are l. an illness to be being denied or parents sometimes feel like they're being. got flight it or it was so it was really just allowed to come in and find other people and then from that we thought that they were ok we need getting the message out that we need people to know because we are not going to see a change in the support for our children unless we actually raise awareness of it that that was not so frances you and your children would you say you have fully recovered now. difficult to say i'm much better. the last really i mean i was really ill until about 10 so from march. and then i and i took some time off work to read it completely and now i think i
5:24 am
have a relapse. probably twice a month out of a few days and i have to go you know take without but after wrath i'm quite aware of you know when right and my children know they're not better they they have relapses whenever they do anything. they went back to school. last couple of weeks to see how they're going on and they've been ill since they eventually get well francis and send a thank you so much for sharing your experience with us all the best to you and your kids of course thanks for being on the program on cue. well last year no one dared to hope that we'd have a vaccine the says and while most of us embrace this fantastic achievement we also wonder if there could be any unwanted side effects it's time for your questions now
5:25 am
science correspondent derek williams. could a vaccine course a positive p.c. on result. just a quick reminder 1st that p.c.r. stands for polymerase chain reaction and tests that employ that technology are considered the gold standard for for detecting the viral genome in swab samples now because some vaccines use information from that genome could they also trigger a positive result this question comes up all the time and the answer is no believe me if it did then you would have heard about it because millions of vaccinated people would have suddenly started testing positive for coated 19 after getting shots that would there would be no way to distinguish between them and asymptomatic carriers it would be chaos but nothing even remotely like that has
5:26 am
happened no if you get back a positive p.c.r. result it's almost certainly because you've been infected even though you might have coincidentally received the vaccine a day or 2 before hand don't forget that it takes your body around to we to to build up a significant immune response after you've received the 1st dose of the vaccine and in that time people do catch covert 19 quite a few i get e-mail from them all the time the science behind why vaccines can't cause a positive p.c.r. result is fairly complicated but basically boil. it's down to the fact that none of the currently approved vaccines used a full version of the real virus 2 to kickstart an immune response instead
5:27 am
they're based on short specific stretches from the stars to view to gino that that actually degrade pretty quickly and so they're not detected by p.c.r. only replicating buyable viruses so if you test positive it's time to talk to a medical professional the vaccine is not a blood. and eric williams will be back to answer more of your questions again tomorrow before we go and this is not an april fool's joke if you're anywhere with a mask requirement you will know the problem every time you want to eat or take a sip of your drink you have to remove it potentially putting yourself and others and risk well is a possible solution the nose only mouse it allows you to take a bite while maintaining at least some level of protection and 0 dignity it's been invented by researches in mexico with street food is particularly popular although
5:28 am
it's better than nothing the w.h.o. points out that a mask that covers the nose mouth and chin is certainly passed. and that's all for this edition of out kobe 19 special for me in the team as always thanks for watching stay safe. welcome to the city of the future. instead of the permanent traffic she. would instead of concrete. pillars instead of air pollution. new concepts for the mega-cities of tomorrow. made in germany. t.w. . africa. 2 young visionaries.
5:29 am
with a dream. jonestown and matches have you found the social innovation academy talent to come here to learn how to turn their ideas into successful businesses i never knew that's what i'm doing this big i am now. in my country for go. 60 minutes on w. . but. most of times are good for the. former. drug of the most. part yet. the industry is controlling your
5:30 am
thoughts of the great books of the 20th century. the present day hoax is. the treated no more. manufacturing ignorance or to make good on to. eat. if you live in the country sight yes surely familiar with the smell of fresh air the sight of a clear blue sky and the fire. field of wide open space it's simply gorgeous and that may make you wonder why anyone would choose to move to the city of the fact is 3 quarters of the world's population now live in towns and cities that is
5:31 am
over 5000000000 people and as these areas grows so do the problems from traffic congestion to soaring energy demands what we need been visions our topic today are made to welcome now did you know that one in 8 people not only live in a city but in a mega city sharing limited space with millions of other inhabitants and now imagine those millions on their way to work not sure if the term rush hour still applies in order to ensure people can actually move from one part of a city to another new mobility concepts and need it and sooner rather than later. mushrooming megacities are a global phenomena there are now 3 times as many urban areas with $10000000.00 plus residents as just a few decades ago. but as cities grow so do their problems.
5:32 am
better than cities are microcosms of society we can observe all the opportunities and challenges in a very small space like under a looking glass and. the biggest conurbation on the planet is greater tokyo population 38000000 followed by jakarta with around 34000000 delhi mumbai manila and shanghai each home to more than 20000000 people as are the biggest metropolis is in latin america sao paolo and mexico city. traffic is a major problem in megacities but there are new ideas out there on how to tackle it . we're also used to cars that we can't imagine cities without them anymore but if we were to experience that we wouldn't want to go back to cars that's an obstacle and. this is how cities might look in future if different kinds of road
5:33 am
users were separated one road is for fast moving electric vehicles another for pedestrians cyclists and scooters with the 3rd a prominent reserved for pedestrians only. welcome to the woven city a project under development by japanese carmaker toyota a prototype city and living laboratory for cutting edge technologies. here all vehicles will be self driving and run on electric power or hydrogen the mini city itself will be powered by solar and geothermal energy with everything coordinated centrally by ai technology. it's been designed for a part. elation of 2000. people he kluger but we need it smarter ideas about how people can move around. in a city with 5000000 residents and 3000000 cars that are idle 90 percent of the time you just need to do the math. so that you could probably reduce the number of cars
5:34 am
by 80 percent. going with a smart sharing system people could still enjoy the same level of mobility mentioned. meanwhile at the other end of asia in saudi arabia there are plans for a new megalopolis knee arm a linear city comprising for. the pet project of the saudi crown prince is said to cost an estimated 500000000000 euros road and high speed rail transportation are all electric and underground. nicknamed the lie because it's meant to be 170 kilometers in length is designed to be carbon neutral with a 5 g. network driving all manner of applications. right now it's a thinly populated and undeveloped area. we want to create sustainable infrastructures that stimulate economic activity. which will in turn create new
5:35 am
kinds of jobs and economic development in saudi arabia. the country is seeking alternatives to its oil based economy neon should also goose tourism and attract startups and media production companies the entire city's energy requirements are to be supplied from renewable sources. huge amount of sunlight and ideal wind conditions so our energy system will run exclusively on primary energy. grids energy will then also be used for desalination. because water is a big problem here. it's an acronym for a new future the plan is to create a city for 1000000 people in just 10 years but is that really feasible. let's combine them if the 2 projects have something in common it's that they're not
5:36 am
what was originally hoped for blueprints and reality are miles apart the projects assume a managerial perspective which ignores the fact that cities are more than just infrastructure what draws people to living there is not something you can plan just like last plan. no one city and me arm 2 visions of eco friendly high tech cities where people can actually enjoy life but will they actually get off the ground. well all i know is that compared to cities like tokyo or mexico city but then it's a village and it does have lots of parks and green spaces like tree lined all of us other streets are getting busier traffic is getting worse it's not just cost delivery vans and buses and of course more people are riding bicycles and there's often not enough room for everyone thinks must change and that's why city planners
5:37 am
are joining forces with start ups to come up with new and sustainable concepts. who owns the city streets of berlin are increasingly busy with cars cyclists but. all this he gets around by bike. for nuthin i know. and i don't want to live in a noisy polluted concrete jungle i want to live in a city where people chatting on the pavements have been don't have to shout at one another over the roar of porches was it not ours to puerto. montt form fix my palin was set up a year ago for the city cycling community its allows users to see for example where there's a new cycle past or where
5:38 am
a new one is planned it already has over 1500 users the idea is to put pressure on urban planning authority. artie said planning a new bicycle boulevard or new bike racks the public can say whether they approve of the plans. so you can see what's possible what the public sees as a priority and what it sees as less urgent where there is less demand. balance population increases by about 20000 a year according to forecasts the city will be home to some 4000000 people by 2030 . how can traffic be reduced. how can traffic flow be diverted to reduce congestion and pollution these are questions that a group of scientists are seeking to answer with the help of data collected by traffic cameras. in the united by let's take a busy berlin street as an example
5:39 am
a street you think would be quite dangerous for cyclists. i would look at that trajectory see if they often need to overtake trucks and buses say and see if that could be quite high risk of time to put in. their findings could be used by urban planners to redesign busy cross roads for example. traffic patterns are constantly in flux recent months have seen a 25 percent rise in cyclists on poland streets. when the pandemic hit the city created a number of pop up cycle paths. but the fix my palin team says there's still a lot of work to be done. and you know. compared to other cities the mayor and the city government aren't very invested in cycling policy. in paris and london it's a political priority. for subsequent. not
5:40 am
yet but the vision reasons city are working hard to get berlin to speed. the green with pop up a bicycle past it's going in the right direction but the future of mobility will still include costs and while many consider any cars oil electric cars a sustainable alternative to gasoline and diesel power transportation it's not that straightforward is a look at some of the issues. electric cars like me are still quite a rare sight there is only 11 and a half 1000000 of us worldwide that's just a tiny fraction of the estimated $1400000000.00 cars in total but our numbers are growing e-cards use raw materials mined in south america the democratic republic of congo and china these include lithium cobalt and rare earths needed in our
5:41 am
batteries it merely extracting and transporting these materials is an environmental nightmare often carried out under inhumane conditions. their reserves are abundant studies show that worldwide deposits of these materials could meet demand for years to come one good thing about us e-cards is that we don't emit greenhouse gases although manufacturing certainly does all my components still have to be produced but my power train only has $200.00 parts as opposed to a combustion engines $1400.00 where my electricity comes from is another huge issue renewable sources or fossil fuels the good news is that the share of green energy is growing which definitely plays in my favor as battery technology improves the range of e-commerce is increasing. right now it's rarely more than 500 kilometers
5:42 am
and often way less finding a tracking station can also be an issue. as to our batteries 95 percent of them could be recycled in an environmentally friendly way but it's still not economically viable. but i recommend you sit back and relax it's surely only a matter of time today electric cars cost more than conventional models but that gap is closing the day of climate friendly affordable electric cars may be about to dawn. so whether electric gas or diesel far too often cars end up stuck in traffic jams why because there are simply too many cars on the roads but we can look to mother nature to find a perfect example of how to keep traffic running smoothly and i'm talking about. i
5:43 am
when it comes to regulating traffic they seem to have it to figured out there are no jobs on their motorways. bad traffic bad drives. and highways are also super busy but clearly run a lot more smoothly. in the human world which congestion on the roads is a normal part of life we even keep track of record breaking jams. when hurricanes rita hits the southern united states in september 2005. 2 and a half 1000000 people fled juiced and or tried to the resulting tailback on interstate $45.00 heading inland towards dallas reached a length of 160 kilometers for 48 hours. in the run up to the 2014 world cup in brazil the roads in and around sell paolo gridlocked 340 kilometers of
5:44 am
stationary traffic almost equivalent to the distance from sao paulo to rio moscow november 2012 the notorious russian winter paralyzed much of the biggest country on the planet for 3 days and 3 nights snowstorms plus the highway between st petersburg and the capital. but how do traffic jams actually come about. the main reason is that you do not have enough capacity. of course they are the reason some of these reasons reasons are not that they do not happen that often. dumb people sometimes make driving mistakes of course for instance they did not pay enough attention and then they have to break our. words. there is a very. 60 percent or 70 percent.
5:45 am
3 percent. serious. yes there is no words to get it if you're going to get it. but the hand world runs differently. in our business as he has with ants the principle is one for all and all for one hardly applies to motorists on the road everyone's thinking what's the quickest way of getting to my destination individuals focus on themselves and don't care about the others. drivers have a lot to learn from hands. on office when the time for action. drivers. are called to serve it with them and there is a thing which hinders the voices to be deceptive. it is just
5:46 am
different. the better good is. not seen that it is if you know if it. meant any system of them and their job to their defense the way forward certainly to this situation still it is user to vote but it's not for the system to display and so answer cooperate and have a common goal humans on the road to in a way they each want to get from a to b. but the lack of cooperation results in countless people wasting vast amounts of time in traffic jams how much time precisely telemetry experts have the figures take for example germany's biggest city think tom-tom has made this kind of statistics and they have a number of days home much more time have you invest in your daily commute and from early in this number is about 30 percent in other cities it's much much worse. 3rd
5:47 am
spot goes to bogota residents of the colombian capital spend an average of 230 hours a year going nowhere fast that's almost 10 full days the frustration can sometimes boil over. number 2. and $29.00 drivers in the indian megacities spent an average of 243 hours stuck in traffic. but when it comes. world beating congestion look no further than many. researchers worked out that in 2019 road users in the capital of the philippines last 257 hours of their lives to the commute too many self-absorbed drivers with big egos crammed into narrow spaces
5:48 am
. anti waste by contrast are always busy but never congested how do they manage that. communicate via sense they have to lands to produce them various pheromones convey information such as danger food all this way. i think it's long work for the community you don't like the system of demand that once you're. working or slow it sure is not stopped by individuals because. i don't think that you can teach the people to be. and still penned on a communal effort and adapt as conditions change humans communicate not so much with each other as against each other and while costing us precious time that comes at a financial cost as well. as theirs even if the speedo they didn't take you to notice . highway if you say they floated on it or to

5:50 am
working a traffic system which has a much larger capacity that's near of today and. insights romance might soon be translated into better traffic rapid change better attitude it's ultimately up to us we need less ego and more consideration for others it's better to cruise at a moderate speed for example then speed and slam on the brakes. perhaps then we'll be able to see of ourselves a lot more time and money and devoid scenes like this. 'd and how do we get into a city pops help without a doubt but what about those places we actually spend most of our time in buildings from offices to homes shouldn't they to be more eco friendly and healthy now ancestors lived in what nots perhaps it's time for this material to experience and
5:51 am
run a sense. a poet with demon a forest. cares that they have nothing to do with the story. the story is about construction sites concrete buildings and the hopes and dreams of people living in concrete buildings. maybe it's forests full of did they dream of so there is a connection after all. that might explain why would is a fashionable construction material. it's those almost 20 percent of new builds in germany made of wood. just about anybody who enters a home made of wood is almost all was overwhelmed by its quality and that most fear . if you go into a newly built would announce you'll feel wonderful from the very 1st moment thanks
5:52 am
to the structural design and the very special atmosphere. thomas company is developing what is said to be the tallest wooden apartment building in germany 29 stories 90. 1 have to go up in building. cities decided that the entire district should be built of wood school buildings made of timber and there is some justification for that we have to aim to be climate neutral in our city's trees of bound c o 2 for centuries and when the timber is used for building it remains bound. that the key difference between wood and concrete. concrete is getting a lot of bad press nowadays a key ingredient is cement and according to the un's intergovernmental panel on climate change the cement industry accounted for 3 times more c

o 2 emissions than commercial. every haitian in 2019. another u.n. report says construction and building usage of a source of 38 percent of global c o 2 emissions. concrete is the default construction material at least for large scale projects and entire new concrete courses going up in the district of berlin. only one building currently under construction will be mostly made of wood only its foundations and staircases will be made of concrete architect robbie has been working with wood for well over a decade. definitely definitely pioneers and such we've also suffered we had to overcome many obstacles met with a lot of resistance from your therapies we had to assemble a team of experts and of course convince our clients property owners to begin with
5:54 am
it was anything but easy i thought. biden 48 in berlin is a recent project of his the 6 storey co-op with about 40 apartments is almost entirely made of wood and a finalist with a 2021 german sustainability a board for architecture. to be honest our practice didn't originally warm to wood for ecological reasons it was 2007 i started thinking about wood perhaps 2 years earlier for it's especially specter. beautiful it was only later that i learned how to go friendly it is and that it binds large amounts of c o 2. out of. the wonderful high rise it's not just meant to be eco friendly but also an exercise in inclusive and social cohesion it won't be condos for the rich but rather housing for people of all income levels. it's about living
5:55 am
in a neighborhood in a community if you live in a project like this you. to have the right attitude toward his world because it lives and moves in creeks. you have to be able to and want to deal with that. but to build with timber you have to cut down trees how eco friendly is that was. always certainly shouldn't just chop down entire forest so they're gone forever we need to use the resources we have in germany and central europe and felled trees selectively importing timber from further afield would be less sustainable. construction as it gets started at the lower house site in downtown berlin but if all goes to plan the wooden skyscrapers should be standing by 2026. and that was the final urban vision for. this edition of. from me in the team here
