2:03 pm
the lawmakers also sent a personal letter to european commission president or the love fund and the european council presidential michel. we asked the commission for their response and we're told this summit was too important not to attend. we've been raising our concerns and we discussed further how to improve the human rights situation, the protection of human rights in the kingdom. and we will continue to pay off most attention to this question. if you officials say it's important to maintain dialogue and keep communication channels open, but human rights groups argue, the leaders must use this summit as an opportunity to ramp up the pressure on riyadh and hold the country to account for human rights abuses. they demanded it, at least all the women's rights activists currently in jail should be released as soon as possible. after all, one of the themes of the g. 20 is women's empowerment. earlier i spoke with christiane bhutto specializes
2:04 pm
in international trade with the bertelsmann foundation. i asked him if saudi arabia was the right host for the event, despite its human rights record. well, whether or not they are the right host. probably not. but what's actually important is that the international policy response to it has been lagging behind the challenge for quite some time. and it's really important that the international community gets its act together and steps up the measures that are taken against it and then make and its economic fallout. so i say it's very important to talk, even if this meeting is hosted somewhat unsavory 1st christian, the summit starts, as you mention, as we hit a critical phase of the 19 pandemic. all of these economies represented need the vaccine to bounce back. how much more competition for access to the vaccine be part of these discussions?
2:05 pm
what's really important is that b. find a strategy to distribute the vaccine world. what if we don't manage to do this? curb? it virus can come back from a remote corner of the world and will haunt us again. so it's really important that we find a way to coordinate the distribution effects scenes that we do so effectively. and that the financing, which currently still persists, is closed. i guess there will probably an element of competition who gets it 1st, which will be unavoidable. but what's really important is that eventually everyone gets it christian from curve into the great unknown of this form. this time around, this is likely donald trump's last appearance on the world stage as us president. what are the other nations expecting from the outgoing president? well, this is a really important meeting. i think expectations are very low and that has to do
2:06 pm
with donald trump. his american 1st approach has turned out to be extremely short sighted and hasn't served america well and it hasn't served the international community. but they said that the international quality response has really been lagging behind the challenge. what i meant this we should have acted earlier than we have, and over that relieved country us, rich countries have thrown an enormous amount of money at competent code. it and poor countries haven't been able to do that in the same degree. so donald trump will probably go down as a president that has had an effective response to this massive crisis. and everyone, i think, is waiting for joe biden to assume the presidency and to see more than the ship from the united states in commenting this crisis and others, christian broad project manager for the bettles men foundation. thank you so much.

2:12 pm
there's no reason for us to leave ancient dates from the 9th century. for days, armenians have been coming here to take a final book. the mood is a mix of grief and defiance. this is a holy place for us when we drive along this route, we usually always stop here. now we came to say good bye. we probably won't be able to come here any more. i hope this won't be a final farewell to come here again. i know that we aren't afraid of anyone . should we be scared if this is the world know that this church is armenian, and will always be armenian. russian peacekeepers have been stationed here to guard the monastery. some of the armenian visitors bring them sweets to thank them. already the stands in the
2:13 pm
landscape. the village around it is deserted. for days, many locals in the area have been burning their own houses, leaving only scorched earth behind for us or by john. the owner of this house was already gone when we arrived the peace deal that armenia and azerbaijan signed officially ended the war here and now. but it's clear that people's anger burns on in nearby villages. people tell us they're still unsure which areas will ultimately be under control. for now is staying with relatives in the village of it in which will stay armenian. she says she's waiting to find out the fate of her town. i don't know what to do. my things are there and i'm here. i thought myself and was
2:14 pm
injured in the last war. i don't want them to take our land. if our house is taken, i'll go and burn it. the mountains of may now be peaceful, but many of the ethnic armenians leaving say they would rather keep fighting than lose so much of their homeland sport quickly. and in tennis, daniel medvedev kept up his perfect record at the season ending a.t.p. finals. as he won his 3rd and final group match. got a pretty comfortable time of it against yeager schwartzman in straight sets. russians form and london is in stark contrast to his debil of the tournament. last year when he lost all 3 matches, things are about to get much hotter. medvedev will play 20 time grand slam champion referee on the dial in the city. fun of the top story, we're following for you this hour, us pharma giant pfizer and its german partner beyond tech biotech. rather thinking about agency authorization for the corona virus vaccine. it's the 1st corona virus
2:15 pm

2:16 pm
working hard listening to keep you informed. don't overwhelm, we're all in this together. on together. make it. stay safe, everybody. stay safe. stay safe, priest, stay safe. let me put it this week on the world story. it's another strict lockdown in france. fighting indifference to corona in turkey. but our journey begins in the usa, the city of el paso, texas is one of the country's carona hot spots stretching hospitals and funeral homes there to their limits. and basso is on the border with
2:17 pm
mexico. but no one is talking about the wall anymore. the pandemic is raging here. numbers are sorie. right now we have about $241.00 in patient cases. now out of control with about 45 days ago, we only have 30. but a lot of those people that you see going into these tents will, i mean they will wind up inside or have authorities are already arranging to move patients to other cities. if the hospitals become overwhelmed, planning for months of strain, we have to make sure that we are ready for this winter. not only here in el paso, but also around the country. resources are finite. there is already a backlog in dealing with the dead. raffy generated more outside the hospitals, serve as makeshift more to ari's. funeral homes in the past so are so overwhelmed that families sometimes have to wait a week to bury a loft. one funeral director 7 selves are struggling to cope earlier in this race
2:18 pm
is one year to the level of stress is very high because it is not comparable to how it used to be some months ago we had around 30 services per month. right now we're having around 18 reasons for me as this is where the economic effects, the pandemic can most clearly be seen. downtown el paso seems abandoned by some money of all works just around the corner. for him, the presidential race is not over yet, nor for president biden is not going to be the president is a woman currents going to be donald trump. he fears his business might be hit by the pen demick, but now he has orders until july next year. republicans, he says, are good for the construction sector. despite his support for trump, he has his own opinion on covert $1000.00, specially after he tested positive. everyone is going to get the virus and we're going to fill up the hospitals. testing is one of the crucial instruments to avoid
2:19 pm
to this problem. we get cordy needs 10 testing centers in the past, so he works for a private company that is being paid by the state of texas. that his main concern in the pandemic is not political. i don't have fully knowledge of what joe biden is planning to do in his administration, but until now we haven't had any kind of difficulties with the current administration. i don't think it's a matter of resources. the main concern is how to communicate to the people. what to do or not? trump supporters biden supporters to different sides that seem to come together in the past. 10 european countries have reacted to the drastic increase in chronic infections with curfews and lockdowns. france's new regulations are strictest of all impressions from paris even under
2:20 pm
lockdown, the french are taking to the streets as opposed to during the 1st 19 wave schools here are staying open, but teachers don't feel safe. we have between $20.25 pupils per class. we are trying to impose social distancing, but in our classrooms, we can at main street, we have a distance of 40 centimeters between each pupil. and that's all that she's the most similar study to say. we were hoping the government would reinforce sanitary measures, but they haven't or at least not sufficiently so we don't understand that. we fear the government is abandoning us. now to tell us you'll need to lash out. they are getting support from their pupils who have been blocking school and transfers and posting videos online that show a lack of social distancing. also unlike during the 1st covert, 19 wave more shops open and large parts of france's industry are still up and
2:21 pm
running. and yet, this is still one of europe's strictest lock downs, with people only allowed one hour a day and only within a radius of one kilometer of their homes. most french think the government was right to confine them, but many criticize the method. i don't understand why big supermarkets are no longer allowed to sell books, clothes or toys, just because small shops that sell the same things are closed. the government is just not good at explaining itself. that's going to meet this will cause lots of unemployment and bankruptcy. why are they leaving big supermarkets open by closing small shops? megastores often take in hundreds of clients and small shops. only one ought to think. they are much safer. and yet the government is staying the course. even though the spread of the epidemic has been slowing down in turkey, despite an increase in infections,
2:22 pm
there's been widespread indifference toward the corona, regulations. the government is trying to change that the city of $60000000.00, in which the corona virus is spreading. and one of the teams that are fighting to stop it was the last image on is a dentist. at least she was until the pandemic started it. she's been a contact traces since march 1 of around 35000 in turkey. and if you're in your book, seen from here, the size of the city can be scary. and i sometimes wonder where this pandemic is headed. but as a doctor, i have a responsibility. i try to think positively and knowing that i help people this would motivates me and keeps me going at the long reduce
2:23 pm
the tracing team manages around 10 households a day. they work in shifts almost around the clock. the goal is always the same. track down test and isolate those who have been exposed to someone with 90 and all of this as quickly as possible. googles 1st case today is the call, x. is all family. the mother recently tested positive. now the father has symptoms trouble. what you call a close up close, or if the test is positive, gergen will also try to trace his call texts. the whole family has to stay at home for the next 14 days. after each visit protective clothing has to be changed. good job is time consuming. and strenuous, but it's worth it. she says. as in many other countries,
2:24 pm
people's vigilance here has slackened in a recent survey. more than half of the respondents in turkey said the corona virus does not affect all warry them. and critics also blame the government for this lack of concern because the health ministry no longer reports the number of new infections every day. but only the number of symptomatic patients john uncuffed, undiano of the opposition c.h.p. says the government is hiding the real scope of the pandemic. so slow here in istanbul alone, the number of cases is 20 times higher than the tally from the ministry of health. i'm saying this with regret, but the figures and information we have given are not correct. we're going to, you know, john is on her next house call. she does not want to take part in
2:25 pm
political discussions. she knows the debate about the numbers, but doesn't want to get involved. that more and more people disregard the coronavirus rules frustrates her brain, which is surely good. it makes me sad. we are putting so much effort into this. but what's the point? if so many act as if nothing can happen to that one. and if this doesn't change, we won't see an end to this pandemic sticking because of google hopes that she will soon be able to work as a dentist again. but she also knows that her new job will be needed for quite a while. germany is currently in the midst of a partial lockdown. schools, stores and businesses are open, but the government has restricted social contact among people. many oppose the measure.
2:26 pm
the alexanderplatz in the popular shopping in strolling a safe distance is not guaranteed safe politicians. that's why there are compulsory mosques even outside. that's finished its own for i find it terrible. why should i put on a mosque out here? when nobody's working behind me? you have to be able to bring fresh air. i'm with mine at all. no one i do not find it. ok. and mosque has to put on in certain places because i mean that it's really going outdoors. what is actually supposed to happen in public buildings. i'm just trying everywhere but not here in a public square. and you can cut to politicians need to explain more clearly what they're doing to combat the gun. think in my view,
2:27 pm
the whole thing doesn't only depend on the politicians. the whole thing is, a social g.t. like many others in a democracy, all people have to support it in some form or another in the law. we will have to live with this virus somehow. and we actually need a social debate, how it's going to look exactly to be true of what can go through with mobile storage, because don't talk so much that something has to be pushed through. now, will it go on like this? will the wave get higher and higher? and of course one has to austin question, what we still have to do not to lose do for news and we're doing not mom doing even more hardly possible for the restaurants and cafes in the capital. they have to close for a month. again, this can be seen almost 5 kilometers away in the trendy district of friedrichs, on there usually hundreds of people in this pub district, tourists,
2:28 pm
but also i think everyone here is not affected is fine with it. so i don't have any big problems to do without now for a while, but also only because i don't and have nothing to do with it. but i can understand that people are angry and secure and that a directive sets them possession like that's left, but will they show up the same time? most restaurants have invested a lot of money in hygiene measures. some officer had to go to at least a little money when
2:29 pm
streets with color, when houses are down and the art works on beautiful and tasty, then it's time for your all maxed. this time it's $3.00 stylish, edible masterpiece this year. robotics next period here and more beer. what else is there? today i want to find out what munich's got to offer for turner. it's time to come here for education. how about heaps of art? history and culture? or something like a 60 w. . we speak different languages,
2:30 pm
we fight for different things. that's fine. but we all stick up for freedom. freedom of speech and freedom of press, giving freedom for a global news that matters. d. w. made for mines is the breathtaking landscape in oscar was considered so beautiful that it was copied by the chinese will see more of it.
