this is deed of lean years of live from berlin a moment of reckoning at the united nations general assembly world leaders convene for a special session focusing on the coronavirus of endemic as a global death toll surges above one and a half 1000000 think collectively calvi a path out of the pandemic also coming up. germany's public health agency warns the country is still far from containing the 2nd wave of corona virus infections this week's daily death tolls are the highest since the start of
a pandemic. i'm told me a lot of boy it's good to have you with us covered 19 and the road to recovery that's the focus of a special session of the u.n. general assembly almost $100.00 world leaders are taking part of a 2 day meeting coincides with the release of a u.n. study that shows that more than 1000000000 people could be living in extreme poverty by 2032 to the long term effects of the coronavirus. german chancellor angela merkel addressed the assembly via video link she stressed the need for global cooperation to ensure equal but equal access to vaccines around the world through the need we must never forget that the pandemic can only be truly beaten in the long 10 when everyone in the world has fat. access to effective vaccines.
oh the coming the pandemic in the long term also means doing everything we can to a much stronger with regards to future challenges and crises to this and we need cosa international cooperation above all with strong the international organizations then we can succeed acanthus in us paul is washington bureau chief you know it's good to have you on the program at the u.n. summit secretary-general onsen a good terrace has urged the world to work closely together in the fight against a pandemic this close cooperation is always hearing a lot about how has this message been received in the u.s. . berthing tell me there is anticipation that the incoming biden administration will help bring this country together and maybe even the world as the pandemic continues to roar throughout this country biden just announced in an
interview that he will make wearing a mosque a mandatory and will also americans to wear a mosque 100 day from his 1st day on in office and you mentioned that the situation there is still on the rise again give us a. more of a picture of what it looks like that. well to be honest it is really frightening at the moment the worst predictions are starting to come true here in los angeles just announced they will be out of i.c.u. beds by christmas california just issued a stay at home order so each day breaking records for infection cases and deaths nearly $3000.00 deaths were reported on tuesday alone and so with winter around the corner as well in the united states as in many other european and other countries health experts are just concerned the worse has yet to come.
we hearing you know with the loss of vaccines expected to be rolled out soon for example in the u.k. but in the u.s. we do have a number of people large numbers of people who are against. such vaccinations how effective can best immunization campaign be. yeah that's really a concern there is some resistance about the vaccine here in the united states and i think it is fair to play that the politics from the white house all playing a role in that it is so the concern of the people is that it was developed too quickly and that there is worry that the side effects have not been tested enough so it will be a huge challenge to the medical and science community to explain the data and be as transparent as possible we just learned today that 3 former u.s. presidents clinton bush and obama actually said that they would take the vaccine
popularly live on television to prove it is safe for the general public and this will be a important and major p.r. company. will be following that whenever it does happen in this poll in washington thank you here in germany the head of the public health institute says the country is still far from bring in the current wave of coronavirus infections under control a partial lockdown in place since early november has stabilized the numbers but it's not yet achieved the expected drop. in the coronavirus pandemic is not yet letting up in germany. the head of the country's federal health agency issued a stark warning. many people are still getting infected with cold and 19 and the numbers are still too high they are on
a plateau but they are not yet falling noticeably. we also see that the number of serious outbreaks and deaths is increasing from week to week but since both of these always occur with a certain delay we must expect many more here. germany has been under a partial lockdown since nov 2nd the daily increase in new infections has leveled off with just over 22000 cases recorded on thursday but this but the restrictions on public life the numbers haven't dropped significantly and this week the country reported a record 487 deaths the highest death toll since the onset of the pandemic with no clear change for the better insight chancellor angela merkel announced on wednesday that the partial lockdown will be extended until january 10th restaurants bars and leisure facilities will remain closed and context will be restricted some say even that is not enough the southern state of bavaria is considering tougher
measures. in the coming weeks we'll really have to ask ourselves whether all these measures are enough whether we can keep the country in a sort of half sleep like this or whether we should be clear and consistent and impose even stricter measures in certain areas with some exceptions will be made over the christmas period to allow friends and families together. in berlin some think a loosening on restrictions over the holiday is a good idea while others fear it may be too risky. because it's very difficult at the moment people can't meet with friends they can't see or their grandparents and maybe these few days will have a positive effect on our lives and. will only make things worse if we cause the restrictions and then we have to beat back the virus again for. still some long weeks of coronavirus restrictions
ahead with hopes pinned on the forthcoming vaccines. as the world prepares for mass vaccinations in the new year it's highly likely that supply will not meet demand 1st and that raises questions about who should be at the top of the vaccination list after months of doom and gloom a shot of hope or rather millions of them but well most agree that anyone who wants to get vaccinated should be able to demand is likely to outstrip initial supply that's why the world health organization is now recommending that health and social workers. over 60 years of age and residence and stuff. get a facility should be played a taste for access to over 1000 vaccines. their recommendations closely mirror the plan announced on wednesday by the british government which said it will start
vaccinations later this month. in countries with federal states like germany or the u.s. the question of who comes 1st and who will have to wait will be left to local authorities in the meantime german chancellor angela merkel has sought to come critics. nobody will be forced to vaccinate and this is a voluntary decision fog of the question of who will be vaccinated 1st is being discussed. but i think i can already reveal this much 1st and foremost of course we have nurses doctors and people in high risk groups. who many have hailed the new vaccines as potentially game changing the beginning of a brighter future but across europe an air of euphoria mixed with clouds of caution . it will inevitably take some months before almost blown on
protected. code so it's all removed right to that is we celebrate this sort of typical achievement we're not carried away with overoptimism. fooled into the naive belief that the struggle is over it's not only after 60 to 70 percent of people have become immune to the virus will the pandemic be considered defeated and reaching that point worldwide will take time. or less and now at some other stories that are making headlines around the world the german city of here has held a minute's silence to honor the 5 people killed when a vehicle plowed into pedestrians on tuesday a 51 year old man is in police custody prosecutors say the suspect was under the influence of alcohol and that there are no indications of a terrorist motives. british police say 4 people have died and one is

reporter katie stephens no kitty she explained want just cements expelling table is right hi tell me what it's like he said at the phonetic spelling table assigns a code word to each letter of the alphabet which you could menus over the radio on the telephone to avoid miscommunication or misspellings there's an international version of this called the nato phonetic alphabet you're probably familiar with it alpha bravo charlie so for example if i was on the telephone and buying a plane ticket and i needed to spell my name i would be quito alpha tango india eco now of course germany has its own version of this with words that phonetic table is up for review this year so that's what this is all about so what's the issue with this german table well is a bit of a history lesson here so prior to the nazi era the german phonetic table actually contained quite a lot of jewish names but after the nazis came to power in 1034 they simply eradicated all of those jewish names from the phonetic table and replaced them with
more germanic sounding ones so to give you some examples dov it or we would say david in english became dora samuel became sikh fried sometimes they just took other words if they couldn't think of a name so not tan or nathan became north pole meaning north pole and zacharias became 2nd. now this is the part of the nazis not he made james drive to eradicate jewish life of germany and it came just a few years before that ultimately culminated in the holocaust with a mud it's have 6000000 jews now after the nazis were defeated at the end of the war some of those names did refer back to the jewish version but it's the nazi era fashion that's remained the dominant one in use that jenny writes itself with what was a girl who is magical really what one sat and want all summed up. along the way maurice and critics for not joining us from athens lock stock.
