germany, health officials or warning, but the true scale of the crisis is not yet known. because of a lag, and testing and reporting of cases over the holiday period, while army cra, numbers have exploded across europe, germany has buck. the trend here, infection numbers have remained relatively low over the past few weeks. but that com may be deceptive. cases have been under reported over the holiday period and many think a steep rise in the infection rate is inevitable. and for the 1st time in weeks, cases have actually started to go up. but there is a marked shift in where the virus is heating hardest. where it's just a few weeks ago, the south eastern region. so the biggest number of infections now it's northwest and germany, that is seeing a spike in cases. this is likely due to the spread of army crown cases from neighboring netherlands and denmark that have seen a sharp rise in new infections. austerity is fear, a new wave of infections could affect the running of critical infrastructure such

as hospitals and other public services. this is prompted a debate on changes to quarantine roles with officials suggesting shortening isolation periods for people who test positive for cove at 19 munoz over. emma allows for if everyone suddenly drops out, then we can close the whole store. if just one person is left, they can't move from one department to the next and then do the checkout at the end . that's impossible this on mercury. while most people in germany support the measures currently in place. nationwide some 35000 people took to the streets again on monday to protest against germany's corona virus restrictions. many protesters are also angry at the new government plan to introduce the vaccine mandate. more and more politicians have come out in favor of it, but it will be up to the german parliament to decide with a vote expected at the end of february. so how do we make sense of the fact that surging infection rates in europe haven't been matched by surging hospitalization,
7:04 pm
rates? i put that question to martin mckee, who's professor of european public health at the london school of hygiene and tropical met. well, i'm not sure city coupling. what we are seeing is that the risk of hospitalization is much lower than it was without earlier variance. but we are seeing that as cases are going up, hospitalizations are going up, albeit not to lot, not to the same extent. i think what we've seen with success of variance is that they're changing in terms of their transmits ability, but they're also changing in terms of the pattern of disease that they're causing. and there's no doubt that oma chrome is causing less severe lung disease. although there are still some concerns about his impact and other body systems, but it is good news compared to what it could have thing. and so the arguments will, will be hard in capitals around the world as certainly are around europe. so was this about army crime? was this about government actions? was this about government over reactions or was this about vaccinations?
7:05 pm
what's what you're taking this this, this machine with so many moving parts? well, it certainly wasn't a bad overreaction when a new very comes about, particularly one like, oh mac compton has so many different mutations compared to what has gone before. a would have been crazy not to have responded very rapidly to taking the precautionary principle. dot said, yes, we have been relatively fortunate. the difficulty is that this is a variant that is evading, to some extent, the existing vaccines. now, the vaccines are still hugely important and protecting against the other barriers. they're also providing some protection against micron, but it is able to break through both prior infection and the facts and, and vaccination dot clearly is a challenge. and what we are seeing under number, if you're ready, all the european countries, is that even those that were bringing the rich time very markedly, like austria, particularly germany, the netherlands, were beginning to see an uptick again. and that's where they're concerning. right.
7:06 pm
another is news of another variant that's been detected in france and traced back to camber room. it's hard to keep track of these. this is another one that we should be concerned about, or if it's just part of the process of, of what covey does. i think we need to be concerned about all of these. and i think one of the messages that needs to come up very strongly is that europe in countries need to increase their sequencing capacity. there are some countries united kingdom, denmark are doing very well in terms of the proportion of cases that are sequence, but not everybody else is. so therefore, we can easily be missing that with this particular very and it dos look like it's having some localized credit. the minute, but it doesn't seem to be competing on the front as far as we can tell up the minute. so there is likely they're likely to be other various that are going to be causing us more problems. but i think we just need to keep an eye on this one or not. perhaps get too worried about it for now i i that's very clear. thank you so much for joining us, professor professor martin mckay from the london school of hygiene and tropical
