6:06 pm
the deal was brokered by the german chamber of commerce as china has barred most non-citizens from entering the country to prevent the introduction of new infections. and someone who was on that flight was our correspondent mathias berninger he joins me now from tangent where he's in quarantine mathias hi tell us more about the person who tested positive and what that means for you. it was 34 year old engineer from a small place in the south of germany authorities have relayed released quite a bit of data he entered the country without symptoms and with a body temperature of 36.3 degrees. that is what we know so far he must have tested negative in frankfurt because he was on that flight and passengers were tested before the flight so now you know we haven't heard anything
6:07 pm
but let's just have a look 1st at what hour this flight was organized and how the security measures were let's have a look. i am here in frankfurt airport usually one of europe's busiest airports it's eerily empty these days a few people however are queuing up in front of a lounge in the basement. we still have 12 hours until the parsha but we've all been samone here for a test the virus test and of course if anybody turns out positive they can opt for the flight. we are passengers on the 1st flight to china in months next to me in the queue is the enter family christian works for a major german company in beijing. this is quite a hassle but it makes me feel safe so i kept it on the flight. the virus test is just one of many security measures to prevent the infection from being imported
6:08 pm
back into china again this is not a scheduled flight but a charter flight organized by the german chambre of commerce and it's seen as a test for many countries who are eager to get their business executives back into the country temperatures screened at the gate and we get a test result. not just happened upon arrival the family as everybody else will have to quarantine for 2 weeks in a hotel room companies are to obtain multiple commissions from the chinese authorities for their employees and all of us had to pick up a special visa had one of the consulates flight was even postponed a few days because not everybody was able to get the paperwork done in time finally we are on our way our temperature is checked several times throughout the night. upon arrival health authority offices board the flight to check the temperature

6:10 pm
janni fascinating fascinating to say that in a show now that you'll finally back where he say things going from here in china. well the question is at what pace can the country open up of course the economy is suffering from the lockdown as it is in many places we've seen all these measures we've been tested price twice for the virus and once for the i'm sorry but it's a temperature in take it and still it seems if this is confirmed if this was not a false test which is also a possibility for the false test result which is also maybe a possibility if this is called it shows that it will be very hard to get things back to normal. it is a virus that seems to be spreading easily and it will take a lot of time until it's under control in enough places to make traveling
