6:06 am
he's 48 years old and one of 19 intensive care patients at this hour from hospital the 2nd wave of covert 19 has arrived and is different to the 1st. ringback we have a lot of older patients in the 1st wave some young ones too but now they're almost all young which means age 15 or younger. and there's another difference to what happened in spring the hospital is treating more seriously ill patients from neighboring belgium 5 arrived last week alone the hospitals head of medicine ses belgian took too long to introduce new stricter measures against covert. jim is an example of what happens when these decisions are made too late there isn't enough capacity so we're taking in more and more belgian patients. during the 1st wave just under 50 patients were on ventilators of this hospital at any one time but
6:07 am
even that place huge demands on the whole staff. but the benefiting now from the huge amount of experience gained. we had standardized procedures last time. i will reactivating those standardized procedures having these standards is very beneficial even if we get more patients we can just implement them. how well the system copes with the 2nd wave also depends on stuff availability. and there are shortages already in some hospitals caused by covert 19 infections or quarantine and those on the front line of the fires you can covert haven't really recovered from the 1st wave. and. even if we had vacation time we were here there was no real time off and after the 1st wave we still had to deal with normal cases and also all the paperwork that was left from the 1st wave no. there's little time to relax because the number of patients who
6:08 am
are seriously ill with covert is set to rise again experience shows that 2 percent of kovi patients and in intensive care. so there will be more i'm expecting more intensive care patients than in the 1st wave. they were just under $3000.00 then i'm afraid it's going to be more this time. here in harken the hoping to rise to the challenge all the way through the 2nd wave of the demands on all of them will be great. pollution and also india's capital delhi all year but a winter sees the air quality deteriorate trast sickly it's a toxic soup that stings the eyes burns the lungs and makes it difficult to free and delhi now appears to be heading toward another surge in covert 19 infections health experts worry the smog could worsen the spread of the virus and make it even

6:14 am
a future without president trump. trump is completely reinvented what the party means for the better and that's how he broke the blue wall because he appealed to blue collar workers he appealed to people without college educations he appealed to the working class of this country want to conserve this american ideal empowerment of the hero's journey of pulling yourself up by the bootstraps and that's what the left is is targeting and threatening today even among young voters the classical left and right to political divide still dominates right and with at least a quarter of all u.s. voters under the age of 30 the higher than average turnout will have a big impact on the results. for washington w. news and berlin up next as the documentary tomatoes and green that examines the driving factors of migration and gone up but before we go we want to show you what the tail end of a hurricane looks like take

6:16 am
tomatoes. they could be goners red to gold the soil is ideal and they've been cultivated in the country for decades yet ghana's tomato factories now stand empty and farmers are opting to leave the country. the reason is that tomatoes have become gambling chips in global trade policy as have other products africa is a lucrative market shipments of canned tomatoes milk powder and frozen chicken from industrialized nations promise huge profits. global trade policies are destroying domestic markets and forcing people to leave their countries edward for one no longer harvests tomatoes in ghana but in italy hauling conditionals.
6:17 am
gonna build up its tomato industry after gaining independence in 1957 the country was keen to develop its economy and utilize its own natural resources today all of ghana's tomato processing plants have shut down including this one in poilu group there are many reasons unstable power grid unsuitable tomato varieties and the global trade policy italy china and other countries are dumping canada and processed tomatoes on ghana if they look for it there's a very strong and. honest critique i'm not proud of what
6:18 am
a freshwater. unconquered you know what i found at oxford is very good for you and for the bar girl after reading this i reacted after sort of. your preview for for for for. for last year i do 2 months for it gets full go tomorrow if you see do with the. line don't know market and this factor. so i was just crying vents and doubting god now grows onions instead of tomatoes he also used to work at the factory he and other former workers still come here they can't bear the thought of giving it up. this factory once provided a livelihood to an entire region
6:19 am
a new this a good of the factory and mood. of the factory because if this fact is working a lot of people are getting to some hours it past produce is very soft. and everything is weak. there's no in the field this machine is moving. here all the time it was a headache that you have something that graph talk lives is is there sitting at you and not working is something not to do forced rigid. if this factory is workable it is it is going to be the light of the north. trade policies are a global competition and the more powerful players stand a better chance at accessing the most lucrative markets it's the people on the ground who lose out.
