10:10 am
welcome back guests under strict hygenic guidelines it's a comeback story for portugal which back in january had one of the highest corona virus infection rates in the world. philip schultz went to the capital this been to see how they did it. sitting in a cafe with friends still a dream for millions possible again in portugal nearly everyone spent the last 2 months are told this was forbidden but now shops primary schools and cafes are open again and people are delighted. sighs it feels almost euphoric simply to be able to sit here and watch people walk. in the so-called wanted i was in no way against the lockdown it was very important but i think we now all really need to be able to enjoy life again instead of just going to work and then looking at our own 4 walls. what i miss the most was just looking out at the water and drinking
10:11 am
a beer. central lispund looked like this for the last couple of months everything was closed the government ordered most people to work from home i read it in response to a disaster portugal had the world's highest corona infection rates the health system couldn't cope intensive care units were overwhelmed lockdown took daily infection numbers from more than 12000 at the start of february to fewer than 400 just 9 weeks later here outside lispunds largest hospital more than 40 ambulances had to wait in line in front of the emergency ward during the worst days of the pandemic now only a few covert patients have to be treated in the intensive care unit and a field hospital on the other side of the street was close to weeks ago some observers are already talking about the miracle of parts about noonish believes more in science than miracles and if you're damn ologist he's a member of the portuguese government's coronato advisory group he says one of the
10:12 am
most unpopular lockdown measures could have been decisive. who cannot take when the interview learn numbers went down somewhat when we 1st closed the shops and made remote working compulsory but it was only when we closed all the schools that the infection figures really started to fall at pretty devious we faking to get out. he says despite the progress the danger is not over and the pandemic will continue to affect people's lives even into the next year and the locked on was tough on the economy pushing unemployment up by a 3rd right now though many portuguese people are enjoying a moment in the sun. and despite half a year after stretches germany is still struggling to contain a 3rd wave of corona virus infections the high caseload is fuelling calls for a tougher lock down but some german states are experimenting with easing
10:13 am
restrictions. a quick testament to his he's like sports and cinema visit sir lived again summerland in western germany has become the 1st state to start loosening restrictions elsewhere scientists and some politicians are reporting for stricter measures among them chancellor merkel's conservative party leader i'm a large share he's suggesting a temporary tightening of restrictions until enough people have been vaccinated for a decent book at this site until that point in time and we are talking about 2 or 3 weeks we should make another effort to limit public life if you've been common supping mesh with criticism also from the opposition. for over a year the only thing policymakers have been able to come up with is shutting down public life telling people to stay at home locking down selling the same old policy with a new slogan with. all stars he's are hoping to accelerate the country's sluggish
10:14 am
vaccine rollout by allowing 35 carriers and general practitioners across the country to start administering the jobs this week but in the capital berlin the vaccination there 1st has experienced a further snag with deliveries delayed by waffle sororities called technical problems to vaccination centers start to close on tuesday because they ran out of doses frustration by the situation the people in germany are calling for a unified approach. the way the 3rd wave is looking it will be even more devastating than the 2nd that's why i think there will be another hard lock down politician somehow can't seem to come up with anything else it will just lock down until everyone is vaccinated. we should 1st implement the measures they've already agreed upon they keep changing the rules
10:15 am
then they disagree then everyone does their own playing it's hard to understand. if our leaders manage to stop arguing then there will be a hard lock down there's probably no other way to solve us. but the country's federal political system is getting in the way oh timidly it's the states that decide on an implement that measures for now chancellor angela merkel is not intervening but she has warned off if the situation demands it she could try to take matters into her own hands. and political correspondent thomas sparrow joins us now from her lead thomas i.c.u. staff in germany are warning that there are not too many beds left how hard is this 3rd wave hitting the country. it is certainly hitting the country very hard in particular because of the more prevail and corona virus variant which is being
10:16 am
described as more contagious and contagious also for a long gun which has led to an increase in the number of corona virus cases here in germany and also by the way to a growing debate about what path the country should take in the next few weeks and in the next few months this is by the way a debate on a situation that is not only happening here in germany also in other european countries and in many of germany's neighboring countries as well which only makes the situation here in this country more and more difficult and more and more challenging there are a few caveats a few good news spot of all this situation one of them being that the number of deaths have been going down and also a positive development when you look at the infections among germany's older population but all in all the situation is certainly very difficult when it comes to this 3rd wave of the coronavirus pandemic and it's taking place the pen demick we have to say against the backdrop also of federal elections that are coming up later this year tell us you know in terms of management of the pentameter how
10:17 am
politicized has it therefore become thomas and how is that potentially impacting the prospect of further lock down measures. well it has always been political right from the start but it is. important to stress now that it's becoming more and more political more and more intense as germany gets closer to that all important federal election in september which will decide the successor to call in the german chancellor and unfold this city all parties involved all candidates involved are trying to position themselves appropriately when it comes to deciding what profit germany should face in the next few weeks and in particular to decide a very important dilemma that politicians are facing whether the country should calf early cautiously open up all where the stricter restrictions should be in place to try and deal with this 3rd wave of the pandemic thomas sparrow in berlin
10:18 am
thank you some other developments now in the quran a virus pandemic in france the number of patients in intensive care is at its highest in almost a year for instance now in a month long lockdown india has hit another new record number of daily cases new delhi mumbai and dozens of other cities are imposing curfews to try and slow the soaring infections and a top official at the european medicines agency says there is a link between the astra zeneca vaccine and rare blood clots the agency is expected to release a new assessment of the drug this week. or brazil has reported more than 4000 new daily deaths from covert for the 1st time the nation's pandemic death toll is now approaching 300 and 40002nd only to the united states experts say the local variant of the virus as calls of the latest surge which has pushed the health care system into a breaking point right when president bos'n otto has also opposed the lockdown measures

as damaging to the economy but many of brazil's poorest citizens are crying out for help they say the government's pandemic response has failed them and without more aid many risk going hungry. these protesters a sending a message to their government brazil is hungry. here and sao paulo's largest openness residents say emergency aid doesn't go far enough i mean that is there though my fear is that my daughters will go hungry one of them still under 18. this is also my granddaughter and i think to myself well they go hungry and. up until december the brazilian government provided those in need with around $1000.00 euros per month in aid community centers like this one have been offering free meals donations have dropped. president both scenarios administration is once again
10:20 am
