n.i.c.u. and those that will follow are part of a new process. they could be the future of granting opportunities, global news that matters. d. w. made some lines this week on world stories. 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 corona hot spots stretching hospitals and funeral homes there to their limits. at basle is on the border with mexico,
4:17 am
but no one is talking about the wall anymore. the pandemic is raging here. numbers are soaring, right? now we have about $241.00 in-patient, coburg, 19 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 our hospital. 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 back luck in dealing with the dead. referee 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 case
4:18 am
is more yet it was 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 are having around 18 regions where this is where the economic effects of the pandemic and 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. north of president biden is not going to be the president of the immigrants. going to be donald trump. he feared 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
4:19 am
to this problem. we get cordie mates 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 el paso. 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
4:20 am
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, it may still have a distance of 40 centimeters between each pupil cannot tell that she's the most. simmers your senator hopeful said. we were hoping the government would green for senator kerry measures, but they haven't or at least not sufficiently so we don't understand that. we fear the government is abandoning us 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 cave in 1000 ways, more shops open and large parts of france's industry are still up and running. and
4:21 am
yet, this is still one of europe's strictest. lockdowns, with people only allowed out 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, and this will cause lots of unemployment and bankruptcy strickly. why are they leaving big supermarkets open about closing smallest megastores often take in hundreds of clients and small shops, only one on t.v. . 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,
4:22 am
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 endemic 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 there on
4:23 am
the tracing team manages around 10 house calls 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 collects is all family. the mother recently tested positive. now the father has symptoms true will put, you call it will close up closer if the test is positive, google will also try to trace his yes, the whole family has to stay at home for the next 14 days. after each visit, protective clothing has to be changed. job is time consuming and strenuous, but it's worth it. she says. as in many other countries,
4:24 am
people's vigilance here has slackened in a recent survey. more than half of the respondents in turkey said the coronavirus does not affect a worry 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, angelo, of the opposition c.h.p. says the government is hiding. the real scope of the pandemic is thought will because will cost so slim. 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 go google an image on his on her next house call. she does not want to
4:25 am
take part in 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 winning, 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 them? and if this doesn't change, we won't see an end to this pandemic sticking. it is a good 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.
4:26 am
linda alexanderplatz in the popular areas for shopping in strolling a safe distance is not guaranteed safe. politicians think 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 now? 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 in moscow to not put on in certain places a minute 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
4:27 am
in my view, the whole thing doesn't only depend on the politicians. the whole thing is, a social g.t. like many others in a democracy, people have to support it in some form or another. in the law. we will have to live with this far as somehow, and we actually need a social debate, how it's going to look at exactly what can go through both mobile storage because don't talk so much, something has to be pushed through. now will it go on like this, with the wave get higher and higher. and of course one has to austin question, what we still have to do to reduce due for worst news and what did not mom doing even more hardly possible for the rest 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
4:28 am
are usually hundreds of people in this public strict tourists, but also as i think everyone here is not affected is fine with it. so i don't have any big problems to do with out now for a while, but also because i don't walk in the hospitality industry and have nothing to do that. but i can understand that people are angry and secure and that it directly affects them professionally. 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 to go to at least a little money. we're
4:29 am
all in this together. it was the slogan on social media. back when the corona pandemic started around the world, it is since then become clear that the poor are suffering economic inequality that to reinforce beneath the waves, norway wants to fight climate change by storing carbon dioxide emissions in the ocean floor. problem solved. the project promises to be a lucrative business. but critics of the technology fear the new complements and are calling for a return to natural field to storage. to d.w.
4:30 am
the us census of the day, the need to keep a hold for all the action on the 4th time from the bottom of the bell is at the last dragon. as word has called a halt. 3 years to the real books on welcome to global 3000. this week we focus on one of our world's biggest problems, inequality societies, where the gap is huge between rich and poor, and where many people are being left behind. and that was before the pandemic. we go to indonesia, which due to the coronavirus, lockdown is currently in the midst of a baby boom. it's making life tough for many mothers. and in the face of this
4:31 am
rising inequality, we ask, what can be done about it and discover that we can learn a lot from europe. why? in many societies today, there's a sharp divide between rich and poor, between those who have and those who don't. and despite living in the same country, these different groups often feel little connection to each other. u.s. president elect joe biden, put it like this. this gap in escape me. it's having the effect of pulling us apart. the numbers, say it for themselves. the world's richest 10 percent own 83 percent of global wealth and the wealthiest one percent owns an amazing 44 percent of global assets. nor is there much hope
4:32 am
on the horizon. in many countries, the global pandemic has widened the gap between rich and poor. around half of the world's 3300000000 workers have either already lost their jobs or are at risk of doing so. foreign, like i'm thinking, it goes without saying that all people are morally equal. but that appears naive or even cynical in light of the vast and enduring inequalities between rich and poor in countries around the world. when the coronavirus pandemic erupted, it was often claimed that it hits all social classes equally hard. some politicians and celebrities even went so far as to claim it would help promote equality in society. a bathrobe clip from madonna is just one example
4:33 am
but is that true or not? i can't think of a single country where it is in use or start a conflict or want that would mean the richest, lose on the poorest and least affected. what we see is the exact opposite of public health researcher richard wilkinson studies the social and health effect of income inequality. what has been happening during and because of the pandemic corresponds to a central thesis of a book. he coauthored the spirit level, published in 2009. life is much shorter in lower social class. and in britain, if you take the richest and poorest 10 percent,
4:34 am
you find perhaps a 10 year difference in life expectancy. and i sometimes say, the biggest social injustice in modern societies are human rights abuse. in countries with high levels of social inequality, the rates of covered 19 infections and deaths are also high. the gini index is a measure of income inequality. south africa and brazil are both very high up in the rankings, meaning they have some of the highest rates of inequality. according to this measure, the united states has one of the highest rates among developed nations. the virus has hit, especially hard. ellen works in berlin for oxfam, an ngo that focuses on alleviating poverty worldwide. the pandemic has hit in the world that was already characterized by massive inequalities driven by the climate crisis and poor working conditions.
4:35 am
of our analysis shows that the pandemic is merely making preexisting inequalities, even more extreme, and hits the poorest the hardest for the tough and learned what makes countries marked by extreme inequality so vulnerable, more vulnerable than even some of the least developed countries. it seems one contributory factor is the interaction between rich and poor. the 1st person to die of covert 19 in rio de janeiro was a 60 3 year old domestic worker. she caught it from her employer, a very wealthy woman who had been infected with the virus in europe and passed it on there are many such stories, domestic workers that contract the virus and introduce it to their families and neighborhoods where it can cause devastation and living at very
4:36 am
close causes drives infection among people who have no way to protect themselves. right, there is still into action between rich and poor households, which also spits the virus. the difference is that the rich seek medical treatment while the poor often don't all can't. statistics show that the poor have been disproportionately hit by the pandemic, both regard to their health and their opportunity to earn a living. according to the gini index, south africa is the world's most unequal country. millions of deliberate found no work at all for weeks on end during the lockdown. many others also lost their jobs . hungry and angry people took to the streets to protest. with looking at years of calling our way back to where we were. and we were already in quite a bad situation with regard to the labor market. and
4:37 am
so it's just very, very scary for, for the structure for the, for the less skilled south africa. the world bank estimates that covert 1000 could push as many as 150000000 people around the globe into extreme poverty. and there's no evidence that the disease is an equalizer, not even in developed nations in the wealthy and knighted state. more and more people are so desperate that they're lining up for food donations. aviv 19 has been likened to a knicks ray revealing fractures in the fragile skeleton of the societies we have builds while we are all floating on the same sea. it is clear that somebody in super yachts with others are clinging to the lifting debris. what can be done to reduce inequality in some scholar, say governments around the world need to introduce a minimum wage,
4:38 am
implement affordable health care for all raise tax rates for the wealthy and giant tech companies, which are doing great business in the pandemic. and affirm the importance of the welfare state i see one could thing possibly resulting from the crisis that the state and its actions will be less discredited. with what is the both is a state supposed to do right now. we don't want big grand projects ever got nothing to do with empowering people. so what the pandemic has made very clear is that if people have basic rights in prayers to quality, you know, and quality education and the ability to actually do their best as individuals. that's also the key, surely empowering yourself is a very to cope with or even if governments and societies commit to reducing inequality, it could take decades to achieve significant progress. some inequality scholars say,
4:39 am
even now individuals can make a difference less self-seeking, more solidarity and empathy with others. the pandemic may have brought out the best in many people. i think as well as reducing the differences in the short term, we have to do things about the trust among us a more equal to that is more cohesive. more public spirited, more concerned with is better in many different ways. the current pandemic will not be the last crisis the world faces. but what seems clear is that more equitable societies are also more resilient in many ways, and thus better prepared to face the future. and this resilience is far more than just a theory. finland, for example,
4:40 am
boasts one of the narrowest gaps between rich and poor in the world. and so far, it's managed to navigate the pandemic fairly on scathed. in fact, now whether e.u. country has such low infection rates, finance governments headed by prime minister's son a marine places, great emphasis on welfare policies. in south america to one country has proved exemplary cheering the coronavirus crisis. europe, why? we headed back to find out more this year has been a stressful time for the family. in montevideo. guillermo was born 2 weeks after the start of the lockdown in itself a joyful occasion. but they couldn't share it with anyone that will get any help. because on a christina and her husband, martine, along with the children,
4:41 am
had to go into quarantine. there was a suspected case of covert 19 and their circle of friends. they were there in the boat also, it was terrible for us because the grandmothers couldn't come. no one follows all my brothers. no one could come and the baby, it was really tough. only gradually were they allowed to visit the following months were full of uncertainty. as you're a great went into lockdown on a christina, works as a psychologist and noticed the strain on her patients. it was a constant climate of fear. but there was a threat that you had to protect yourself from something that was eating away at, you know, science or not it all. when i saw all my patients who worries most of them or younger people where you might have thought they would just go with the fly. but now they struggle just
4:42 am
now 7 months later, the world looks very different. the borders between europe way and its neighbors are still closed, but the small country is so far doing well with less than $100.00 deaths and only a few 1000 cases overall. although infections have now risen sharply again, schools and universities closed for a few weeks in the spring. it was the same for shops but now the streets are busy again. many people voluntarily wear masks in public. there's still a need for caution, but there is also an obvious sense of relief that things are not worse than they are. the mood is also one peek at the posture research institute. when the pandemic started in march, they were able to respond immediately with nationwide testing. the testing kits came from these laboratories. they think the approach taken by the government helped were not. i think one of the big advantages in poor guy compared to other
4:43 am
countries, was that both the president and just coronavirus team were good, supported our scientists right from the start of so that the scientists were then able to make decisions in good time. and i also think that or why as one of the few countries worldwide with an integrated health system where everyone has the same rights when it comes to medical treatment worth of mary for decades, europe way has invested in its welfare state and that appears to be paying off now in the crisis, the country is home to around $3500000.00 people. poverty is definitely an issue in some areas and impossible to overlook in the capital. still, the mayor of montevideo is proud of the city and says here too, everybody has access to health care with a wide array of why has transformed its public health service over the past 15
4:44 am
years. now in this emergency, it's exactly this system that's playing a huge role. this video has the best health service of any city in the whole of latin america. if you know your equates former president jose move, he is one of those credited with reducing the gap between rich and poor. during his 5 years in office, he's simply known as paper. here he was president until 2015 and invested heavily in health education and social welfare. now 85 years old, he agreed to give us an interview in his garage. but it's almost a certain level of prosperity allowed us to develop a social democracy that has shaped the entire country not only structurally and materially, but also in terms of our way of life. we are no
4:45 am
a country known for its tolerance, where people are very civilised in their dealings with each other. but also when there are differences of opinion or economic crises are going to only go personally . i think it's one of the best places to be in the whole of latin america, part of the or maybe go to the in the back to the family. they've been enjoying meeting regularly with relatives and friends again. so what do they think is the secret of your equates relative success in this crisis so far? apart from the good political decisions, they think the country just got lucky to a certain extent. perhaps it's a different mutation of the virus that we have had. that means the cases aren't as bad as in europe, and perhaps it's the climate yet in the saying what a lie that i have no way. there must be some other reason. a few
4:46 am
months ago, they never thought their lives would improve again so quickly. but none of them will forget the anxious period around here most birth any time soon. unfortunately, most countries not like europe, why? when it comes to fighting the pandemic. the current crisis has made life much harder for many people, particularly women. lockdowns have led to a sharp rise in domestic violence. and aside from this, women are the ones typically taking on all the extra child care and home schooling responsibilities. statistically speaking, women also have a far greater chance of losing their jobs or falling into extreme poverty. in indonesia, many women have other things to worry about too. even newborn
4:47 am
babies, where a face shield in the maternity ward of this hospital in jakarta, the covert pandemic is affecting everybody in indonesia are you has just given birth to her 3rd child. her joy is tempered by concern. she's a homemaker and her husband, a driver. used to work full time, but now only has 2 days' work a week. yeah. i'm very worried. my baby needs milk every day and other things as well. but our income is much lower. now. we have to somehow scrape by when you have to be from, you know, d.v. ra, you had chosen to have another child before the pandemic hit. but hundreds of thousands of women in indonesia got pregnant during the pandemic without planning to. this is bond on 150 kilometers east of the capital. she is pregnant,
4:48 am
but she didn't choose to have another child. during the lockdown she ran out of contraceptive pills. the local chemist was closed and condoms are not widely used in indonesia. then her husband lost his job and now money is in short supply. but he said, during the lockdown, the public health clinics didn't want to see women who only needed contraceptives. yeah, i could have come to see a midwife privately, but that would have been much too expensive and even know that i'm pregnant. i can't afford to see a midwife to get a check up. the daughter siti and son, java both still go to school. money is tight, even without a 3rd child. you r.c. has applied to join the public health insurance scheme, but she doesn't yet know if she's been accepted. it doesn't cost anything. if you're poor. i hope you'll get health care for free.
4:49 am
we don't really have any alternative. well, it makes me dizzy to think about the future and something, i'm sorry. i hope it works out. the nativity for you that employees of the national population and family planning board. go around making announcements via loudspeaker. you can have sex, you can get married, but don't get pregnant. men, restrain yourselves or use contraception. the authorities are worried about the surge in the number of births. young thing that allows you there are various methods of contraception and injection of pill condoms. yeah, yeah, i mean, the tree on t.v. is a midwife who works for the family planning board. she tells women about their options. she's one of 24000 counsellors across the country. even before the
4:50 am
pandemic, 17 percent of pregnancies in indonesia were not by choice. but because of a lack of access to contraception, the coronavirus has made things worse. scepter jante enter. colleagues have only recently gotten back to work. and that's what happens during the lockdown. men and women spend more time together. the men were at home off work and the women didn't dead to go out. many didn't use contraception and that has meant lots of unwanted pregnancies. absent, it's estimated that the lock down will mean as many as half a 1000000 more babies than usual. the authorities want to curb the boom. so septra jante and her colleagues go door to door advising women. and providing contraceptives often double the usual amount. yeah. how do you review my haleigh gave birth to her 1st child a couple of months ago. now she's decided to use contraceptive pills. i might even
4:51 am
decide they want to at about my normal the midwives remind her to take them at the same time every day without fail. a few houses further, they visit, uni. she has one child and until now she has gotten contraceptive injections, but they only work for 2 or 3 months. so now she's decided to go for a hormone implant. instead, it works for 3 years. the state will cover the cost if women from very poor families get pregnant accidentally, the children often suffer from developmental deficits. because the pregnant mother and later the children don't have enough to eat you. horsey rarely leaves the house. the number of new covert 1000 infections remains scarily high and she wants to keep her unborn baby as safe as possible.
4:52 am
yeah, i get more and more read every day. what does the future hold for us? how can we even survive under these conditions? that when you get there, and i'm a god and separate the in the government was aiming to have the number of children with development deficit's due to poverty. within 4 years. the pandemic baby boom will make it harder to fulfill that ambitious goal. and now we head to kenya to make this week i am going to cheat
4:53 am
my name is faith. i'm 17 eos was living much when that relationship merope in january to my dad i love going to school simply because i believe me, but i wants to make my life be better. make me sex, says you flora when i'm freely i love listening to music. i love dancing,
4:54 am
and they love great interest there too late in treating my feeling a little well, they're big global programs. i think of well, but you are of most places and it can really affect when this form of children now most likely to not to be able to go to school. they're not to get their basic means they want and they can not to dress well. they cannot, he too well. so it's so sad and then that being we have the global warming. when it's gams, there's drought, and these drought, there's no food. when there's no food and people are most likely to stab. and even leading to a day of my
4:55 am
hope for the cure chat, i would like to be done with my high school stand lose. and then i join one of the big universities in kenya, or even on the road. and question my criteria. and the basics are super in my own allegedly, i mean people practitioner, not in their freshman to say no, the whole d. all plus the same criteria. what's makes me happy. it's just everything i don't mean simply because i'm grateful for what i have in a way out in the form because of myself because of my peer and i just as myself. so that's why i'm happy, i'm happy holidays. and
4:56 am
