due to last until december 6th, which will journalist carry sky ring is in vienna and joins us now. kerry, tell us more about the new measures. austria is taking to fight the pandemic. this is very similar to what we had back in march when the hand demick 1st started spreading across europe. people have to stay at home. they can only go out what are called the life basics such as food and medicine and medical care. there's an exception to that one post in the can visit, as long as that person is a close relation or a dependent person. so, extremely restricted movement. as of this morning, people are waking up to this. it's not where they expected to be. in this poll, after, in the spring being in control of this virus, austria has now suddenly lost control of it. for what 2 austrians make this, are they supporting the new measures that are being taken?
9:03 am
i think they recognize most people recognize the necessity for it. the daily infections last week hit a high of 9 and a half 1000 on one day, and that's in a country with a population of less than 10000000. so the figures a speaking for themselves, that if something is done and on the street, you see it. the number of ambulances moving around the streets when you're driving in the traffic over the past couple of weeks and during the night has increased dramatically. so it's not just the daily rollout of the figures. it's the evidence that people are ending up in hospital and people are dying in greater numbers. how is the health system coping with the scary? it's fair to say it's right on the limit and it was pressure from doctors, from health professionals that really pushed the government in the end towards this move. they are now saying we have almost $500.00 people in tents of care. and
9:04 am
that's the limit really at this point they have to decide who gets and who doesn't . so that's a life or death decision which doctors didn't want to be forced to make. and they were part of the decision making process, i guess, for the government to finally. and many people are saying, rather too late to introduce these measures. what about the government? is it in for creating criticism for its handling of the pandemic for having to take this step? now the government was praised for its early handling of the pandemic, austria, if you remember, was one of the 1st countries to come out of lockdown in europe. and now yes, there is criticism of the government, the opposition hasn't really been able to make much moch. i would have to say the social democrats are in opposition. we have a coalition government of conservatives and greens, and they generally been credited with handling it. well, this decision to leave it until now until such
9:05 am
a high rate to introduce this lockdown. that is definitely bringing criticism from both health professionals and from the opposition. carrie, thank you very much for bringing us up to date there. that was journalist carrie stiring in vienna. or u.s. president elect joe biden has warned of fatal consequences over the trumpet ministrations continued refusal to coordinate with his transition team. on the pandemic. president trump has so far declined to be free to begin a formal administration handover process focusing instead on disputing his election loss. well, here's what biden had to say during a speech in delaware. more people may die. if we don't coordinate, the vaccine is important. a solution to your vaccinated. so how do we get the vaccine? how do we get over 300000000 americans vaccinated? what's the game plan? it's a huge, huge, huge undertaking to get it done,
9:06 am
prioritize those greatest need and working our way through it and also cooperate with the world health organization and the rest of the world in dealing with this. if we have to wait until january 20th to start that plan, it puts us behind, over a month, month and a half. and so it's important to be done at the be coordination. now. now, hours rapidly as we get that. obeid scientific advisors are planning to meet with drug makers to map out a nationwide vaccination plan without assistance from the trump administration. the u.s. is seeing its biggest spike in corona, virus infections and deaths. since the start of the pandemic, new cases have more than doubled in the past month. the latest hot spots are in the central states, such as north and south dakota, wyoming, and wisconsin roots cons, and which are reporting record number of hospitalizations. in terms of new cases,

9:21 am
$200000000.00 euros swath of fish in british waters each year. 10 times more than the u.k. side pulls out of the water. the french would like to keep bringing home red mullet like these. caught on the u.k. side of the channel despite breck's it everything will grind to a whole 2, but maybe we can still salvage something. i don't think it will be a death sentence for coming, but it would be a catastrophe for our lives. for everyone here. there are no walls in the sea fisherman, like all, if you had to stress many species, are born in french waters and move to british seas. once they've matured. for centuries, the 2 countries have been sharing their fish in their waters, hard to imagine that this could suddenly come to an end. the separation line in the channel runs right here. if there is no deal,
9:22 am
the french fishing boats and the european fishing boats will lose this entire zone . and we will all meet in this small area of the belgian boats, the dutch and the french. so we will then systematically over fish, and this will quickly lead to bankruptcy own fate. that also holds true for bigger boats. the captain aull is unloading pollak called off the coast of scotland. some of these fish will be sold back to the u.k. . meanwhile, british fisherman sell around 70 percent of their catch to the europeans. it's a matter of taste what they don't like. they sell to the french who are crazy about u.k. course. see spider place and dover sole or difficult shows. we trust both sides and we have to save jobs and find
9:23 am
a solution so we can both survive. they have the fish, we have the markets, we have the internal market with a few 100000000 consumers. feel it, should we put all this into question? we've managed to work together for decades and decades. in $5000.00 jobs depend on the fishing industry. if there is no breaks and free trade deal, the town's future is at stake and small operations would be fighting for survival. after quick break in the harbor, he's heading back out into the channel, u.k. waters. oh, only 40 minutes away. but politically, britain and the e.u. remain oceans the pot. astronauts flying with aerospace firm space x. have safely docked at the international space station after
