8:02 pm
the standard strengthens out population now vaccinated. the m morrison. government has been about border control. i'm done this, there's been this great tension around celebrities, not only in sport, film, stars, and j. v. stars mothers. i'm coming in to australia as a time when people were forbidden from a from australian citizen, permanent residence, are allowed to visit, so that their home country jock of each, his well known for his opposition to mandatory vaccinations and his in the past refused to reveal his status this week in a stipend, he confirmed he had tested positive for cove at 19 last month and requested a medical exemption to play in the australian open. he now could face a 3 year ban from re entering australia. this ministerial ruling could see jock of each to puerto before the australian open begins on monday. when he faces the 1st

8:04 pm
vaccinated before traveling to australia. death, no doubt, that the joker, superstar not on the serbia he is now left for the month. super play is danny, played and he's the best and he's played in every nation. so be proud, proud of him, but i am maybe not even competent person to come in because there is a 2 sides in the one serbian side which supports you entirely. and he's big and another side, i am chief time boxing a and i to plug in issue is because i take care of myself, but mostly i think people around me. so it's not the case about no joke. and it was, it was not clearly, rather he got qualities and he, he's also not clear. basically he's q r codes on he's, he's documentation. so he knows perfectly that he's coming close to the enormous district regulations. so being fun or not, of jokers being 30 to one side,
8:05 pm
but being the dimensions. and so i think if you could assist us and someone who is very low, will be the person, it's opposite side. so i feel good not joking greatly at this moment because if kids, if you can use the country or coming up from other countries can follow regulation. and if you understand in europe the some you know, you can just pop up and get from your visa and it gets you the way for 2 years. then other countries has to follow is in his entire career. it's jeopardize and as jock of which is legal troubles unfold, australia is battling a surgeon current of virus infections. its most popular state of new south wales has reported a 3rd day of record number of deaths. hospitals are struggling with staff shortages on disrupted supply chains, leading to empty supermarket child. in europe,
8:06 pm
germany has reported its highest number of infections since the pandemic began. more than 1900000 new cases. be highly contagious. ami kron variance. now accounts for most of those infections, health officials, or warning f cases continue to climb, they could swamp the health care system. on the pandemic is also pushing germany to the brink of an economic recession. europe's largest economy shrank at the end of 2021 without falling by up to one percent in the last financial quarter. another decline like that could force the country into a recession. donna cain reports from berlin. the situation here is in one sense, worse than it has ever been the incidence of cove. it certainly here in the german capital is higher than it has ever been. the numbers of new infections across the entire country is higher than it has ever been. that number, and that number itself more than 92000 announced on friday that itself
8:07 pm
a rec hold. but 10 percent higher than the previous day thursday which itself was also a record at $81000.00. so it's very clear for medics and ministers right now. this is the worst headache they could possibly have in a political sense, the trying to keep a lid on army chrome and in some people's eyes. failing at a news conference on friday, the question was put to the new health minister called lots of our that may be because some people say ami chrome is milder for most people who are infected with it, that it should be allowed to to run ravage as it were through the country and thereby helped build a heard immunity. this is the reaction, the minister came up with on the learner for them to 1000 us. and i want against the idea that we in germany should accept a full barn epidemic. accept the number of victims that we then would have to mourn is uncertain, is certainly too high. and it would also not lead to protection against further variance afterwards. because we cannot deduce from the current infection and rather
8:08 pm
is unlikely. it's worth also bearing in mind that right at this moment, around 2 thirds of all the coven patients in intensive care in german hospitals are on vaccinated. remember that there are many millions of people in this country who still have had not even one vaccination. and it is they who the government a trying to prioritize whilst repeating their mantra of where a mosque ventilate your buildings where possible and get that booster. why? because they believe omicron is that kimberly dangerous menace as it were for them here in germany right now. and the u. s. has in reporting an average of 800000 new cases a day for the past week. hospitals are struggling with their highest ever numbers of co, with 1900 patients. the center for disease control says the decimal could be as high as 62000 in the next month. our white house correspondent, kimberly hock,
8:09 pm
it says that health system is under immense strain. the hospitals are still struggling, and that's why you as president joe biden, deployed another round of military doctors and nurses to 6 hot spots around the united states. 6, a states that are particularly high in terms of not only the infections, but also the hospitalizations and deaths. now in terms of how this federal response is be received by the general public, it's getting low marks because there's a lot of frustration that the president knew. this would be a difficult winter, would even it without the i'm a chron variant. and the problem is, is that still the public does not have widespread access to free testing masking. so what we're waiting for is further guidance from the white house on that. it's been promised for weeks. and we understand that some of that new guidance could be available later today on friday. so we're watching carefully for that. but in the
8:10 pm
midst of all of this, the overarching message from the white house has been get vaccinated. the problem is it's vaccination effort to try and at least force the federal employers as well as private employers with a 100 plus employees. is that the supreme court struck down that effort, saying that it was in violation of civil liberties. and as a result, only health care facilities that receive federal dollars can enforce this mandate. so this has been a problem for joe biden. he is getting low approval ratings. he's struggling to get ahead of the narrative that his promise to really get a grasp on the cove. it epidemic has not come to fruition. the u. k. prime minister's office as apologize to the queen after merged a party was thrown on the eve of her husband's funeral. the drinks were held downing street on april 16 last year. this was in a corona virus lockdown when socializing indoors with band. and the nation was an
