do we know if the virus strain is already present in germany seventies top viral exist because stand aust news one of the leading experts worldwide when it comes to sars called to. him said on sunday morning that the virus mutation has not been seen in germany so far he whites are berlin's leading hospital the 70 and like i say he is the leading expert in the current corona virus that's causing so much headache so he hasn't seen it yet but of course there's an extreme risk that as we speak the virus mutation is on its way right and the u.k. has again a tightened coronavirus restrictions for christmas amid a surge in cases and what's the situation alike here in germany germany also tightened its restrictions last wednesday germans were initially promised an easing of restrictions because of course christmas is the most important family holiday here in this country and then under makola 16 state premiers looked at the latest
6:04 pm
figures of new infections and just said ok the current measures have not worked enough and we have to tighten the restrictions again so very tight rules apply for germany as well you can only meet with 5 people and in certain areas of the country when you infections are extremely high you're not even allowed to go out at minds right deja vu correspondent nina has thank you very much for your reporting. as we've heard concern about the new strain has led british prime minister boris johnson and to reverse plans to ease coronavirus restrictions over the christmas period he's imposed an effect of a lockdown on london and on the south east england and has a need of the capital which is usually bustling with shoppers at this time of year almost unrecognizable millions of people have been forced to cancel their christmas plans under the restrictions the prime minister is facing why discredit criticism
6:05 pm
for the decision. however britain's health secretary says the government had to take quick action this virus the new strain was out of control we've got to get it under control and the way that we can do that the only way you can do that is by restricting social contacts. well let's get more from mohamed money or here's a very from lancaster university in the u.k. dr minyard how concerned should we be about this new coronavirus strain well thank you very much for asking this one because this is really important to any mutation that occurred into the spike being but that makes the surface of the virus has some concerns because through this spike but again the virus and body and become successful so over the top and we have noticed that so many mutations outlook are rich out relatively little or no impact but this particular variant that have
6:06 pm
emerged now has $23.00 mutations which are significant in terms of disease to also disability so therefore it seems like this why this is more successful and more fitter this means that it is possible for one person to another person and from one of the community quite effectively and of course the big question that everyone will want to know as we see a light at the end of the tunnel is will the already developed vaccines a still be effective. well that is again really important what i just want to highlight is that when vaccine works vaccine doesn't work against one part of the virus it works against different components of the virus for example there are more than 2030 different sites within the 5 but again against which the vaccine is effective so if one or 2 mutations occur still the other one would protect against the infection so as it stands now the mutation that we have had to fire the air in the u.k. have literally no impact on to the vaccine effect of that so therefore the vaccine can be developed by the pfizer astra zeneca would have no impact on the this why
6:07 pm
the secretary on raising the immunity and also to really neutralize this waras i'm sure that's a relief for many to share but look at this mutation was 1st discovered back in september do you think the british government should have reacted earlier well this information was provided to the british government in the early october that the test cases were reported in can't reach and but then it's a product quite quickly in the other part of the inland and since then the government has been reporting on to this infection and we have the scientific community have been there and you find those mutations that are becoming more prominent but usually take a little bit of time before they become the dominant strains within the population so it was just just a few weeks before when the virus became so probably not. identified forward positive cases were belonging to this strain and that is how it made to the surface . to actually start to take place thank you very much mohamed when your environment just from a plane test a university. let's turn now to some of the other stories making

sunday's is as much a part of everyday life as having breakfast a neighborhood just won't keep quiet it's here that you finally get to meet your neighbors. for all the demonstrative good humor fear is never very far away in minsk most people here don't want to be recognized and only agreed to be filmed wearing them asks one person who is willing to take that risk is media 20 she's only ever known one leader at xander. was to book she knew back in august we felt the change was really close it felt like it was in breach of just a day or 2 more and everything would change. 4 months later we're not where we wanted to be. dollars. was. police emerge out of on mock bans scattering the marches in all directions dozens of
6:18 pm
smaller demonstrations in parallel across the capital means making the police's job that much harder for the hundreds of protesters still routinely arrested each week and the stakes are rising the courts hand out a harsher sentences. look at the the fear only really hits you when you get home and read about everything that's happened that day online. i always carry a set of instructions with me to tell you what to do and who to call in case you are arrested. eventually the protesters recruited continue this time without the help of modern technology so often protest days and the loose government has switched off mobile phone networks. the real. their protest from the locals is over what. we got really lucky one time the police were using stun grenades we got hit by some shrapnel that was nowhere to hide and all we could do was knock on people's doors so we moved from house to house and eventually there are about 30 of us hiding in one woman's house she
6:19 pm
looked after us and wouldn't let us risk leaving the house unless we had a lift to pick us up. this is one of the seniors. but not everyone is as impressed. as the march reaches its conclusion the question is as ever how to get home without getting arrested. because it really feels like we've changed as a country have a happens now that can't be reversed conduct appears to be true but. no one can say with any certainty how long these protests will continue or what they might still achieve before most of these young better russians are protesting giving up doesn't seem to be an option like. the us has the highest number of corporate 19 deaths worldwide. this is partly because president continues to downplay the threat of violence the consequences are from.
6:20 pm
south dakota one of america's least populated states but yet the virus has spiraled out of control here like nowhere else in the u.s. in the city of sue false a mask mandate was put in place recently without sanctions many citizens remain defiant i think it's a good idea that people wear masks but some people balk at the idea of being told to do so i think with some of the shut downs are doing and the picking and choosing that they're doing is making it very difficult for a lot of businesses like most of the people nowadays like even ehlers are not worried but i think it's for the best like there's her. south dakota now sees the highest hospitalisation rate of the u.s. and there is no relief in sight. i see you wouldn't out of schroeder is one of them he and his colleagues working 12 hour shifts trying to save those who are at

the brink of death. a task which comes with the personal toll we deal with a lot of dying right now unfortunately not everybody's recovering how we'd like it's a little harder every day people are coming in and typically for acquiring much oxygen a lot of them end up getting a breathing tube. and from there you know it's just a battle for their life i kind of see and understand his weekly press conference mayor paul 10 hakan of the republican party updates his community about the latest developments the mayor has been criticized over his handling of the pandemic in this part of the country i think there's a fierce independence a lot of people have made the mistake of calling a cowboy country at one point and people didn't appreciate that but the point of that term meaning we're independent we don't like people telling us what to do. christina bjorkman wishes for more government action against the pandemic in
6:22 pm
october she lost her husband took over at 19 after a 30 day long struggle at the hospital her ordeal. where. she says his death could have been avoided with stricter rules. the whole mask mandate got political and should never been political and should have been a medical thing and i think it just got so blown out of proportion and i think maybe it came from our president. he started it. christina bjorkman is pinning her hopes now on the president elect and a nationwide mask mandate once he takes office before then thousands more could die from cold at 19 in south dakota and are all the rest of the united states. the coronavirus situation is also a concern in turkey. the government only recently began publishing the full number

6:28 pm
