2:04 pm
indian tell your region but so far only a few 100 coronavirus infections have been officially registered here. mostafa good then thinks turkey is coming through the crisis relatively well he believes decision makers in europe are deliberately warning against trips to turkey in order to give their own tourist destinations an advantage. all my ideas that germany exit very biased they declared us a risk area but open borders to countries that are in a much worse situation because they know italy for example they have more coronavirus cases than turkey and a higher coronavirus death toll a lot of chilled me to say secure. many share food and frustration and tell us historic old town is normally filled with tourist bartering facilities but now the sellers fight for them restaurant owners and taxi drivers are wondering how long they can keep going. with the attributes we only have

2:06 pm
decision makers in europe that turkey is a safe destination this summer they are actively lobbying many countries right now to open their borders to lift travel warnings ankara has launched a so-called healthy tourism program which sets criteria for health and hygiene in airports and airplanes as well as in hotels restaurants cafes or at the beach and hotel know most of the told me that the authorities are quite strict when it comes to making sure these rules are being followed and don't tell us afterward for example we saw thermal cameras checking passengers temperatures there also working on setting up a coronavirus test center there so many things are being done but then it's also important to keep an eye on how the outbreak develops and i mentioned that the coastal tourism hops in turkey have seen relatively low numbers off coronavirus cases but overall in the country we're seeing
2:07 pm
a search in the number of cases again they have in fact doubled since the beginning of june when turkey lifted most of its coronavirus restrictions we're now at nearly 1500 new cases a day and that's probably something european decision makers will take into consideration when deciding about you know lifting travel warnings or changing travel advice to 3rd countries like turkey where this travel warning from the german government for example is that straining relations between the 2 countries the tourism industry very being very important for the turkish economy. well germany's travel warning that is not just a travel warning for turkey but for most countries outside the e.u. so-called so countries but because turkey is such an important destination for holiday makers in germany and germany also has
2:08 pm
a lot of population with takis origin this has turned into a political issue it certainly has the potential to turn into a conflict maybe old though turkish officials are trying to you know be very soft in how they express their reactions we know that the turkish government is very unhappy about that german travel warning but let's listen to what turkey's foreign minister said recently. how he reacted we are disappointed that some countries extended their travel advisories for turkey or publish lists classified as a risky destination there is no objective and scientific reason in these steps turkey has proven itself in its fight against 19. so they are disappointed germany on the other hand says they need to monitor how
2:09 pm
the outbreak here in turkey it develops they also said they don't want to have to fly german citizens who are stuck somewhere abroad be it in tokyo elsewhere they don't want to have to fly them out once or if the situation worsens but many also say this might not just be about the pandemic but also about politics because german targets relations are quite strained there is a number of contentious issue issues the libya crisis syria the refugee crisis all the human rights situation here in turkey so some say this travel warning might also be a means for germany to seek some political concessions. d.w. correspondent in istanbul for us thank you. for authorities in one of 2 german districts on the renewed pandemic lockdown say the opening 5 new centers for people to get free coronavirus tests the aim is to carry
2:10 pm
out $10000.00 tests per day in the town of little off people being told to expect long queues the neighboring districts have become hotspots after an outbreak at a local meat processing plant that infected about $1500.00 people. in the meat cutting section the 10 yes it's the center of the outbreak 2 thirds of the workers here have tested positive but why did the virus spread like wildfire here scientists suspect it could be related to the air cooling and circulation system in the plant but it's here. what we didn't know before is that under these circumstances the research elation of air can keep aero souls moving that is a risk factor we weren't aware off this long it was enough to stiffen works as an air conditioning technician in the city of deuce book according to german law all workplaces need to be supplied with fresh air the tiniest meat processing plant is no exception to my on the brink of this there are cooling
2:11 pm
systems based on research elation they lower the room temperature to between 6 and 10 degree celsius but the machines used for that only move the existing air around they don't add any fresh air. experts now speculate that the research relations system may have spread the virus throughout the plant because the air is not purified doesn't consider these appliances aren't built to carry filters if one is installed the machine won't be as effective as before it's like buying a sports car and adding a heavy trailer it just won't go as fast or. the air circulation is to blame he says lingering arrows souls couldn't withstand the movement and yet slaughterhouses are increasingly becoming carona hotspots. and lower saxony 45 infected workers from a turkey slaughterhouse are currently quarantined in these army barracks and the
2:12 pm
north rhine-westphalia 79 employees of a donor combat factory tested positive even though the conditions here are much better than a tenuous and still the meat processing environment was fertile ground for the virus. in other coronavirus news around the world right now officials in the english beach town of bournemouth have to clear the major incident after massive crowds flock there and hot weather authorities said ignoring public health guidance on the coronavirus was responsible the declaration allows them to initiate an emergency response including the deployment of additional police patrols. u.s. health officials say as many as 20000000 people may have already been infected with covert 19 almost 10 times more than the number of confirmed cases this is the state of this as the state of texas pauses plans to reopen its economy i mean

a surge in covert 900 cases. in india it's been almost 3 weeks since authorities began lifting coronavirus restrictions and cases during the capital delhi has become the worst affected city with health facilities buckling under the strain of rising infections officials are rushing to extend testing to millions of residents . the sharp rise in cases in delhi has seen it crowned the coronavirus capital of india the government is being heavily criticised troops pull contact tracing on to lack of medical facilities. we're coronavirus in itself is a huge problem but we should think of implementing policies and facilities that aim to reduce people suffering we shouldn't implement policies that hamper the system and create chaos. in the state of delhi alone infections are expected to surge in the coming weeks government estimates show
2:14 pm
there could be around 550000 cases by the end of july in response the delhi authours has announced house to house corona virus screening in the city itself. going door to door will help the government to detect patients and it will help to curb the spread of coronavirus. part of here is people who have a high temperature as if they have corona virus all tested at least they will have the satisfaction of knowing whether they are positive or not if they are positive they will know if they are negative they won't be anxious about it dell is authorities and not only faced with the unprecedented challenge of stopping the spread of the corona virus the shooting of beds is also a major ongoing issue the indian capital's luxury hotels and stadiums could be turned into field hospitals even spiritual centers in delhi are designated for
2:15 pm
conversion to covert 19 cafes sillett is. joined by. what's behind the sudden explosion of corona virus cases in delhi. well the sudden spike has been observed says does the city of delhi started coming out of its log downstage for the past 3 weeks a lot of economic activities have been allowed to do many people outside of going back to work 2 if you go out on the street you see people have more or less resume their due to do not this is one reason why the transmission rate has increased and we must remember that delhi is a very highly populated city that actually one of the most populated cities not only in the country but in the world so a city with a population like this it's very easy for a mass transit transmission to happen where the government has launched a massive survey in which it plans to record the health details of all of delhi's
2:16 pm
nearly 30000000 residents the companies. that is quite a big challenge but for the past couple of weeks that we have been seeing that there's a sudden surge which many reports and experts are saying that this surge is happening because delhi had started testing very aggressively over the past one week they have been many days that we have seen that will treat how the new cases are being detected on a podium basis in the city so to control of situations like this they do need a strategy like my so will and so they are in 20 more product line health workers to go door to door and conduct these screenings basically and finding out people have symptoms the idea is to conduct the serbian every single house along the city to the 1st week of july and difficultly create a list of people who can fall into a high risk category and apart from that there are plans of conducting an antibody test as well just that's whether anybody has had a part exposure with the white house. what other measures is the government taking
2:17 pm
at the moment to fight this pandemic. well at the moment not only don't we but the national government itself is scrambling to implement out in steps so that you know the spread of the white house can become the latest one being that they really have canceled all the trains that had started playing between different states for another few weeks 20 some special trains will be allowed to move the international flights from in suspended more and more halls and stadiums are being taken in and can work it into covert care facilities the national government on its part is maintaining a regular coordination with all the other states and we must know that there are states also in the country which are taking calls of their own that are states which are also taking their own poll of how much of how many restrictions to implement and how much activity they can allow people to resume. correspondence from thank you. well india's confronting the growing across is as parts of the

2:26 pm
police that leads to the police abusing their powers for them to continue by making it even worse. brussels police declined to talk to us about police violence and racism but in an interview with flemish radio the federal police chief acknowledged there were occasional slip ups but he also made clear there was no problem of structural racism. with the recent lifting of the lockdown measures some pressure was taken off policing but it seems there is still a very long way to go to restore trust between police and communities. before we go some football news liverpool have been crowned premier league champions clinching their 1st english league title since 1990 after beating crystal palace for nail on when. stay they simply needed the closest rival manchester city to lose or draw and city duly dropped points and london won their 1st chelsea that means your club become the 1st ever german coach to win an english title.
