infection nights i eating daily record highs, pushing more and more parents to get their children jabbed to slow the spread of the virus. the danish government has announced that cinema theatres and concert halls will be closed. restaurant opening hours will also be restricted in neighboring germany. the health minister has raised the alarm alecia front and i'm, i'm assuming a massive fits wave. that's awesome. we have to prepare ourselves for a challenge and all that we have not yet faced in this formula in these are formed on the copper infection rates have been rising rapidly across germany to the easy spread of on the kron with sun rights soaring even higher as a result, the german government has now classified denmark and other countries, including france and norway as high risk areas. travelers will have to quarantine
4:04 pm
for 10 days upon arrival unless they have been vaccinated over covered from a corona, virus infection. chi cooper, schmidt's as a journalist and molecular biologist, he joins us from right here in belin l. okay. so our travel bands and restrictions really justified but i think we have to look at these 2 things separately. and there's a lot of uncertainty still about what exactly the impact of lama con will be. what we do know is that it spreads really, really fast, and that it is going to lead to a lot of infections. so that's the reason that for instance, in a country like germany where we still have a high number of you know, an immunized people. we need to be really careful. and that's the reason that restrictions are being put in place. and that seems to be the right call at the moment when it comes to travel restriction that is much more complicated. we do know that this virus is basically everywhere at this point. and you know,
4:05 pm
all you can do with travel restrictions really slow down the spread of virus to your country a little bit and a little bit of bread within the country. but i think we're probably past that point. so i think that we should really be concentrating on what we can do within our own borders to, to prepare for this way. ok. so let me ask you a question. as on many people's minds, basically that's only kron affects the vaccinated and vaccinated in the same way. again, you have to be really careful and look at, you know, different scenarios here. most of the data we have at the moment is for people who've been vaccinated, either with astrazeneca or with spies or maternal vaccine. and what we see there is that the protection from symptomatic infection, so from the mouth, disease let's say, is very, very low. if you had to shut the vessel danica, it's quite low. if you've had 2 shots of pfizer, and if you got a booster,
4:06 pm
it is much, much higher. but the most important thing, of course, at this point is the question, what happens with severe disease and the data there for the moment? i mean, we're still getting a care of picture, but i'm quite hopeful that the protection from severe disease, if you're vaccinated and goose is really high. and so there is a huge difference between people who've been vaccinated and boosters and people who are vaccinated as we entered the new wave with this very, which was still trying to understand better exactly quick one before you go. so what really needs to be done to prevent new variance appear in every couple of months? how can we break that cycle? well, it's a complicated question because the biggest thing we can do to reduce the variance emerging, of course, is to reduce the number of infections worldwide. as long as this virus replicates in hundreds of millions of people, you're always going to see a lot of mutations and then you have natural selection acting on this. and in the
4:07 pm
end, you might get very, instead of a team unity or have other advantages when it comes to trans miss ability. so okay, that's one thing that we can do right now. the hope of course, is that with new vaccines, we might be able to avoid infections and especially severe disease better. and in that case, at some point, maybe we can treat those virus as a lot of other viruses that we are infected with every year. that's the whole. ok. generalist and molecular biologist cai cooper. smith. thank you. let's now look at some more stories making headlines around a world. the philippines disaster agency says that that toll from type when right has risen to betty one. the storm also left massive destruction and it's an official see. many people are still missing. more than 300000 people, let their homes to escape the typhoon, which was one of the most powerful in recent years to strike the philippines. 3 workers had been killed in italy after

4:20 pm
there are problems with aid for victims, with a disclosure of mistakes by security agencies. and with the wider investigation into how the attack came about, authorities quickly determined that the terrorist was working alone, a conclusion that was probably also an attempt to explain why they hadn't sufficiently monitored andres networks. and why they didn't stop him in time. 4 days after the attack on us army was shot dead by police in italy, effectively ending a criminal case against him. but country to what police and intelligent services of claimed i'll research suggests that armory was not alone. wolfe, he was instead part of the international terrorist network of the so called islamic state or ins, with connections to the would be caliphate center of power in syria. or
