this is d w news live from berlin the us takes a major step towards a conquering the coronavirus an expert advisory panel endorsers the biome take pfizer vaccine as the country sings more than $3000.00 deaths in a single day also coming up the e.u. leaders result of bunch of blockade and pos a massive new spending plan that includes billions in coronavirus relief. and the head of germany's disease control agency ranks as the a law office daily covidien fiction's reached
a new break or high is germany heading towards a tougher locked out. i'm jared raid thank you for joining me we begin the show in the united states which is now on the verge of authorizing the country's very 1st coronavirus vaccine an expert panel made up of. scientists and doctors has been scrutinizing the doctor from the bio and take the vaccine trials it is now issued an image and see recommendation to the food and drug administration which is a major step towards a mass vaccination campaign in the country regulators in britain and canada have already approved by own take have approved this vaccine for use in their countries . let's go straight to washington now where our correspondent all of a salad it is standing by hi there all of us so an expert panel has endorsed this
vaccine is that it does that mean it's approved now well that was the last big hurdle at least jarrett so we're almost there it was a recommendation as you mentioned about the food and drug administration the f.d.a. who was then in charge of issuing that emergency authorization usually always follows those recommendations so that said we are also in a very grim situation in the united states as you know yesterday a new record was said 3000 people died of covert 19 so it's very clear that that panel would say yes to the buy and take pfizer vaccine also given that it's already approved in the united kingdom but what's missing now of course is the for the formal authorization of the f.d.a. and that could happen as soon as tonight or tomorrow and looks to be a formality as you say let's talk the next steps now how quickly could have vaccinated vaccination program start and what would this look like. well
the u.s. government hopes to get some $20000000.00 people vaccinated until the end of the year and that could even start as soon as the f.d.a. issues its final approval the city of washington d.c. will relocate is currently preparing for 1st vaccinations to take place next week so senior citizens will be 1st as well as front line workers those who are really exposed or at risk and of course there are also some challenges ahead as you know the the vaccine has to be stored at minus 70 degrees celsius so there are some transportation issues resulting out of that you need special equipment special freezers unnecessary and that is a problem in particular for the rural areas of the united states which does not have access to such equipment all of it there is a lot of people in the united states who will be needing a vaccination what is the general attitude among the american public to to
a vaccine how do they feel about it well it's hard to map out a general attitude jared is it's very it's very different in the coasts and along the coasts and in rural areas but latest poll suggests that some 60 percent of americans are now willing to get vaccinated that's up and it was a little bit less a bit earlier there's a lot of misinformation and conspiracy theories circulating also on the topic of the vaccination and of course at 19 in general of course and therefore 3 former presidents have come out and they want to get vaccinated in front of the cameras to raise awareness also to make people to raise the credibility in fact and those are george w. bush bill clinton barack obama so it's a bipartisan a bipartisan effort here and the hope of course is that as time goes by and more people get vaccinated also the acceptance grows within the american population and
that's our correspondent in washington d. w's all of a salad thank you very much olivia. involved here in europe leaders in brussels say they've come to an agreement on the e.u. use 1.8 trillion you or i botch it which includes hundreds of billions in coronavirus relief funds member states poland and hungary had blocked approval of the budget of a plans to tie the money to respecting the rule of law bought a compromise brokered by germany which commonly holds the u. presidency ended the deadlock after a tense few weeks the jovial atmosphere at today's e.u. summit suggested e.u. leaders knew what was to come. oh i swear on these 2 men the prime ministers of poland and hungary had threatened to veto the entire e.u. budget over plans to link funds to rule of law conditions today we feared that we might be. attacked in an unjustified 3 year fighting for the victory of the
of the common sense both felt a lot was at stake and for the e.u. 1.8 trillion euros roughly one trillion for the next 7 year budget and a 750000000000 euro rescue fund to help breathe life into the e.u.'s virus had to con him. but just in time for dinner a compromise table by german chancellor angela merkel seemed to do the trick council president shell announced on twitter that all 27 member states had reached a landmark agreement the deal was done. but not without controversy the changes could see rule of law proceedings delayed by years in viktor orban case until after the next election but it seems this was a concession that had to be made to him block desperately needed funds before christmas. michael let's bring in our correspondent matus in brussels good to see you they go so a year leaders have managed to save this budget the standoff is over what exactly
were the concessions that got everyone to agree in the end. right so you can boil it down to 2 key can concessions are 2 offers that were made one is that something that will simply delay things because the european court of justice will now have to look at this mechanism and basically confirm that this is fully legally functional and secondly there will be a declaration signed by a member states that everyone agreed to tonight and that is that this rule of law mechanism will only be applied in a fair manner so it will not be you misused for political pop party political gains if you want and that was a concern that hungary and poland at least that's what they said that was a concern they brought forward so now that that this is out of the way the money can flow and if you want it's been a bit of a political thought but at the end of the day quite
a historical day that this huge amount of money of this rescue fund is now being put on the table and it's the 1st time the e.u. is taking up debt something that germany for many many years has avoided and that is now taking place the 1st time and the money does will now flow as you say and we know that a big chunk of this package was made up of is made up of coronavirus relief fund so what happens to this money now. exactly this money when we're talking the loans and grounds about the same size of this money will 1st go to those states that are most in need those states the hardest hit by the pandemic for instance italy and spain now before they can unlock their share of that money from that fund you have mentioned they will have to come up with a financial plan and. a suggestion how to restructure their economies before they can actually get their hands on that money but basically the money is
now there lots of it and it will start from january next year onwards ok stay with this it's been some busy days in brussels because there's another of course unresolved issues the post breaks a trade deal british prime minister boris johnson as we know met we've seen live on the line the e.u. commission president to discuss this issue let's listen to how boris johnson described parts of the meeting on thursday it was put to me that this was kind of a bit like twin. view case one when the e.u. is another and if the e.u. decides to have a haircut then the u.k. is going to have a haircut or else face punishment of the e.u. decides to buy expensive handbags the. expensive happens in the u.k. has to buy expensive hand back to or else face terrorists and clearly that's not a sensible way to proceed unlike any other free trade deal. haircuts and handbags new york talk history the issues that that stand in the way
of this deal. well 2 key issues are still sticking points i want to fishery which i think can be resolved because you have interests on both sides you have you fishermen shipping fishing in british waters and on the other hand you have pretty fisherman who are trying you're selling 70 percent of their catch in the e.u. now the more difficult thing is the internal market the so-called technical term of level playing field and was hiding behind that technicality is the idea that you need to have the same standards if you throw away barriers and tariffs you need to have fair conditions so if one country has a standards they it cannot be that the other country simply dumb stare cheaper products cheaper early produced in a less of a quality on the other market i think what the british prime minister here on the other hand is referring to is the norwegian model which is the idea that the other country is forced to follow the standards what the e.u. in this case of the u.k.
is looking for is some sort of a mechanism where you can agree that there need to be tariffs to be introduced a once one country deviates from a certain standard and from what i've been told from diplomats here that's a completely fair and logical consequence of any trade deal that was to be made ok that's a corresponding matters they in brussels thank you very much. stic look now at some of the other stories making news around the world today israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has welcomed the rocco's decision to normalize relations in a deal brokered by the you with donald trump broke the news on twitter calling it an historic breakthrough under the deal the u.s. will recognize morocco's climb over the disputed western sahara morocco is the 4th arab nation to recognize israel in recent months. and celebrations have been held here in berlin to mock the start of the jewish hanukkah festival thing clue
did lighting a lighting a lighting ceremony i should say for the 1st branch of a giant menorah on display at the city's brandenburg gate german health minister against attended the event along with leaders of the jewish community. was saying here in germany they've been too grim developments in the coronavirus pandemic here thursday sora new record number of daily infections and more than 20000 people have now died from covered 19 in germany that's despite weeks of a partial lockdown which hasn't had the effect that authorities have been hoping for the head of the country's disease control center is warry he's now urging germans to stay at harm of a christmas political momentum is also building for a tough a lockdown over the holidays with some regions already introducing new restrictions . with only 2 weeks to go until christmas the looming question is will the
hard lock down come before or after the holidays the president of germany's will but call institute is concerned that curve might have been flattened but efforts to reduce infection rates have yet to show effect. our calculations show that the plateau we're on is extremely fragile the situation could easily go sideways again leading to a quick exponential growth of case numbers explode into the arms. especially in assisted living facilities the situation is problematic according to german authorities residents of nursing homes are more at risk than ever. currently we're seeing double the amount of outbreaks in assisted living facilities than in spring and every outbreak affects a lot of people are tough and several states are now considering tightening the measures already in place berlin's government is considering closing all non-essential retail schools may switch back to distance learning and extend the
winter break. i believe these 2 and a half 3 weeks will give us plenty of opportunities regarding disease control. state leaders are hoping to set out a coordinated road map in a meeting with chancellor anglo-american. if you get a moment of fun also if you miss the gathering looks likely to take place on sunday . we were very interested in getting together as quickly as possible in order to rapidly gain clarity about the path our country will follow you to open door at one point a cute. in light of recent developments religious services over the christmas holidays are also in the balance. then i mean if there is a possibility of a religious gathering endangering lives i'll be the 1st to call things off. the so-called most wonderful time of the year now marked by fear
a new lockdown in germany isn't a matter of if but rather when. there's more on this coming up right now into w.'s coronavirus special is more on the developing news after w dot com and also twitter instagram to a directory thanks for watching. the phone against the coronavirus tend to have a. has the rate of infection been developing what does the latest research say. information and context around a virus update 19. w. . how does a virus spread. why do we parent and when will. we just threw the tag.
