9:09 pm
a heart attack my heart hurt for hours afterwards i screamed and cried i was in real trauma for several days afterwards. she's lived with the diagnosis for 6 weeks now under spent the last 2 here there are strict protective measures in place at the clinic director daniela veges one of a handful of ex covert 1000 patients the others here are recovering from cancer surgery. therapy here consists of physical exercise breathing sessions and methods of relaxation directed and elevate spends a lot of time here on the cross trainer. said the right targets only been 3 days now that i haven't had to sleep so much and lie down during the day there is this strange extreme tiredness after covert. viewed. tightness on the long lasting loss of taste are typical symptoms after covert 19 and. what's surprising for us is that the damage done to the nerves during kovac 19 massively limits our patients
9:10 pm
mobility the psychological strain is also severe they've survived a life threatening disease and they keep thinking about what could have happened it . director danielle of it spends a lot of time thinking about her father he was in hospital with cancer and the coronavirus in the spring she was only allowed to visit when he was dying 2 days after his death she had the 1st symptoms self and couldn't attend his funeral something she discusses with a doctors here. more and more covert 1000 patients are being admitted to rehabilitation in germany health insurance companies have started covering the costs to ease the pressure on hospitals dirt and yell of it is not immune and feels liberated. just a few days ago i laughed out loud for the 1st time that's when i thought oh here i am again i can laugh out loud and from the bottom of my heart that wasn't possible
9:11 pm
for weeks. she plans to get her immunity tested regularly but for now she's looking forward to life after 1000. where dozens of countries have launched contact tracing apps to monitor new covert 900 factions in an effort to keep the virus contained it's been exactly one month since germany rolled out its own internet we want to ask is it working to ensure that my colleague in essence is here at the big table with me so i mean what do we know i mean has it made a difference well there's 2 things that health experts are looking at here that's how many people have downloaded this app that's one thing and in germany that's looking pretty good 16000000 people have downloaded it in the 1st month so markings of 130000000 that's right it's about it's about 19 percent and an oxford study said that in order for an app like this to be effective at least 15 percent of the population have to use it and another thing that experts are looking at is how
9:12 pm
people are using this app are people registering that they've tested positive for the corona virus and is this information being passed along to the other users of the app the problem here is that the app in germany is very privacy oriented data privacy or and they don't store user data so it's almost impossible to have any real statistics on how people are using that so if they're not storing it in the data then that is proof that it's very conscious of data privacy is that a hindrance though to actually trying to prevent the virus from being spread oh yeah data privacy experts are praising this ad for how good it is and not field but it definitely is a hinderance to how how researchers how that app developers can look at how this app is working so in other words the question whether or not this half is working. we have to assume we have to assume it's working right everything is based on estimates so far and whether or not that's affecting how it works is another
9:13 pm
question so there is no evidence in other words that the data privacy is actually making it worse and some people are even saying that it's it's more functional because the real important. here is how many people are using and the evidence says in germany 16000000 people 16000000 people have downloaded the app in other words the more data privacy the more people download the better the. theory less big brother you have there you downloaded the app right on the day it was released i think and what's been your experience i see you're still looking healthy that's right yeah and i still have my privacy so i download this app and it was pretty easy i mean you just do it once you leave it on your phone you leave your bluetooth on i have a low risk assessment i have like a green box on my phone that says that i haven't come in contact with somebody who has the virus in the past 14 days that's a good sign there were some problems in the beginning it said that exposure logging
9:14 pm
was not possible and when i went through the steps to make exposure logging to turn that on and it didn't change how the app was set so i couldn't figure that out hopefully that wasn't my fault but there are some reports of users experience being less than ideal but so far a lot of people have downloaded it and that's good news if you want to run the trust factor is really important there is always i mean thank you i spent 5. years watching the news and here's a reminder of the top story we're following this hour a turkish court has sentenced the german turkish journalist dennis puja to 2 years and 9 months in prison for spreading terrorist propaganda was in prison for more than a year without charge in istanbul he was released in 2000 each scene. i don't forget you can always get the w. news on the go just download our app from google play or from the store that will give you access to all the latest news from around the world as well as push
