6:33 pm
transforming china into a global power. he wants to make his power felt all across the chinese society as well. he has boosted the military and launched a crackdown that is muzzled the tech ty coons like ali baba's jack mar. in recent weeks, she has been stepping a pressure on the sovereign island of taiwan, which trina considers its own. but one challenge he has yet to overcome is economic head winds. growth is slowing amid an energy crunch and supply change as russians. and there are still concerns about china's real estate market. she's image has become so elevated and so sensitive that the communist party has sought to curb all of their alternatives beyond its officially crafted version of who sheeting is even to go so far as to force the cancellation of a book. talk this october about she in germany, the author of that book, adrian geiger's told us then why he thinks china is doing all this. but i'm feeling
6:34 pm
is and what they even told us, it's because, you know, there's such a cult of personality around she. she pin and now in china and even to portray him as a human b is her too much and im derived sim. perfect. so he was the walls to something like this. we don't care about it. the only mentioned it in the sentence in the book, even this is too much because there is a show him in china is something like like a super esto, even like, like a god. and what she says goes, his government has pushed a number of reforms aimed to erode individual ism and push for more devotion of the self to the state that's shown up in the way china has dealt with the pandemic ordering entire cities to get tested, vaccinated, or go into lockdown. it's extended to the bedroom with china's birth rate dropping

6:36 pm
a vendetta from the west. we'll meet you with our calling. we have already elaborated our position that were firmly opposed to act as ice faults, yankee doodle. to lot out of the senior politician pung, accused of rape. john gully hasn't responded to the allegations. but while china tries to block out the issue, the w t a has been pushing for an investigation. the decision to pull out of china was its boldest step, helped by pung success as a player. china accounts for hundreds of millions of dollars for the women's tour with the beijing winter games just ahead. the international olympic committee is under pressure to do more a 30 minute video call. it held with pung, didn't assuage concerns. it led to criticism that the i o c was playing into china's hands with human rights watch calling it a quote hostage video in a recent
6:37 pm
d w interview. and the i o c. you know, it's, think about it this way. if, if you know, you're asked to participate in making, you know, helping make a hostage video, do you jump in and say yes. now of course you gout, you try to find ways to actually assess the person on protect your own reputation, which is all the ios is doing here. pun has received support from many current and former tennis players who have praised the w t decision. one question now is whether other sports bodies will follow that lead d. w also reported this year on beijing's campaign against wiggers. millions of the predominantly muslim minority have been held in detention camps. but even those spirit imprisonment are subject to harsh surveillance measures as mathias bowling are reported back in june . the surveillance of the week as starts at the
6:38 pm
entrance to their home. a few years ago, faced scanning devices suddenly appeared and residential compounds all over the city hall rooms. they had direct dealing to the police. on the outskirts of the city, we managed to film a cluster of data centers. police data and surveillance footage are processed here . an app on their phone alerts policeman once software has identified a suspect under glo surveillance are those who have recently moved to a different city. i've traveled abroad. ready guar in an official suspect data base, who use an unusual amount of electricity bows. phone is often disconnected. again, we have stopped from filming what is happening in saint john is seen by observe is around the world as a crime against humanity. a system reminiscent of the darkest periods of the 20th
6:39 pm
century. the poet by today's technology mathias ballinger, who files that report had to leave china after working there for several years. harassment from citizens and police while out doing his job, made it unsafe for him to remain in the country. now, we can't talk about china asserting its influence. if we don't talk about taiwan, tensions between china and taiwan are being described as the worst in decades. beijing has sent dozens of warplanes to fly repeatedly over taiwan air defense zone, prompting accusations of intimidation with she warning that quote, it has never ended well for those who betray the motherland and quote. so how does taiwan view china's actions? here's t w's tie. pay correspondent william yang. while the mood in taiwan remains relatively calm, defense officials over here one, china could be launching
6:40 pm
a full scale invasion against taiwan by 2025. they also set that china deployment of military aircraft into time. once a d i z is intended to wear down the islands air defense. the sako rays on tactics is viewed by many security experts as one of the greatest security risks in the region. because they think in the events like this, if there is any miscalculation, it could lead to a unavoidable military conflict between both sides. however, taiwan remains very confident that it has the capability to deal with the rising chinese military threat. and it does not expect any countries troops to get involved, because they think the ultimately the responsibility of defending taiwan breasts with its troops and also its people. they have also laid out the plans to modernize its military weapons and at the same time also to race the combat readiness of its troops. germany will likely take a tougher approach to china given the new coalition government, the green parties,
6:41 pm
and lena bear, bach is now foreign minister in an interview to german newspaper taz. she laid out her vision for berlin's interactions with beijing, saying quote, dialogue is the central building block of international politics. but that doesn't mean we gloss over issues or remain silent on them. foreign policy based on values is always a combination of dialogue and toughness. eloquent silence is not a form of diplomacy for the long term, though many have believed so in recent years and quote, that's careful diplomatic language. but the greens have consistently taken strong positions on taiwan on china and on human rights. we spoke to no, a barkin senior visiting fellow at the german marshall fund for how he thinks this will play out. one area is simply on human rights. i think we're going to see a more outspoken german government on issues like she and john on issues
6:42 pm
like hong kong. i think on taiwan as well. we'll see a change of tone from the government. i think another area is, is euro, you know, i think bab bulk has made clear. and this is also in the coalition agreement that she wants to push for a more unified european approach to trying to. this is something that medical under, under outgoing chancellor uncle and math goal. she, she paid lip service to this but didn't really pursue it. and i think was accused by others in europe that sort of presuming, pursuing german interests rather than, than a broader european approach. and i think, you know, it's going to mean just more confidence in bed box, said this in a, in an interview this week. you know, europe has the leverage over china. china needs european markets, trying to need european investment. so taking a more competent approach in,
6:43 pm
in dealing with china, less self censorship. bell book has said she wants to end this sort of culture of silence. that's it for today. there's more on our web site. we'll leave you today with cheating. king's a china, this year has seen him and the party exercised greater control over people's lives, directly in pursuit of his vision of a more powerful and united china. thanks for watching and good bye. with the fight against the corona virus. pandemic. how has the rate of infection been developing? what does the latest research say? information and context?
6:44 pm
the corona virus update the code 19 special next on d. w. 2016. if a good bye to the queen casa, want to see if germany was for me. the last few years have been quite a ride in burly, in touch with averted on the home when it comes to gem abuse. and of course i always look in the eyes birch is, but perhaps the biggest on the new hobby of mine, i'm no longer approved. i love to be and then you'd better repose america. but when you're feeling multiple giving you realize that coach is just another way of living . are you ready to meet the driver and then join me, right? just do it on b, w. ah, ah, germany now has some of the world's strictest rules for people who are not fully vaccinated against coven 19. the country also has
6:45 pm
a vocal minority who refused to get the jap many subscribe to conspiracy theories, and call themselves queer dangers or transgressive thinkers. they've been protesting against the increasing rules in germany, and now many or so fed up, they're leaving some anti vaccines are now looking to get away from the locked downs and restrictions of their home land, even to places as far off as south america. ah. hello and welcome to deutsch of those covered 19 special. i'm see from beardsley in berlin with every wave of cobra. 19 illnesses in germany comes a new backlash from those strongly opposed to the health measures taken in response, including vaccination protests and refusal to wear a mask in public places or the actions that most commonly take. some however, have gone to more extreme measures. olga and vala cone came to who are now in december 2020. it's
6:46 pm
a small town with around $15000.00 inhabitants in the south of paraguay. it was founded in 1900 by german settlers. the cons. appreciate the peace and quiet here and the countryside make the boil. the cones emigrated from stuttgart and south western germany to paraguay together with valez brother and his wife. they said they can lead a free life here without coven restrictions, is also of labor staying healthy. for many more years. yama, we have more time for ourselves. that's what it looks like. well, without fear keeping animals growing our own plants but vague and assign. langford, for i live just living freely. that's to plan more than 1000 people have moved from germany to paraguay in the last year. the cone brothers want to set up a business repairing cars like they did in germany. they hope they can have time for their family life outside of work or in bushel
6:47 pm
l'oreal in by the in germany. both of us were employed. we both worked in the long hold act in iraq. the kids were in school and in kindergarten. there were vis elton olga. we hardly saw each other, but i thought is all wrong sometimes for 2 or 3 days because i had to work more to earn money. pennsylvania and some of those who have emigrated here are turning their back on cove restrictions in europe. vitaly folks who now works as a pastor for the community and whole anal explains the ha, number of migrants. with his religious perspective, the lobby didn't parkway, in red, gothic and then i found paraguay on a world map. coleman and gaunt said like the time has come and he will be there he was. and as it was said, bob. so it came to pass. i also led an online for a more and my subject was a wave of migrants to paraguay. my team of law. i novilla also on that on that
6:48 pm
paraguay, other members of the german community in holland l. like in a honda who arrived a few months ago from the us, are much more forthcoming about their rejection of the coven measures and vaccines . all of that isn't something paraguay should go along with she says, a cabin. thus i decided to come here because we noticed that through this harem of iris situation, everything was tightening up, becoming more difficult. because more and more people actually had to flee germany, austria and switzerland. i mention, we think they lost their jobs, and soon they won't be able to go out shopping. the funnier i bite stella, and now they're announcing a vaccine mandate type. it's couldn't be the sean island info slung and it still remains to be seen just which coven measure is paraguayan will implement in the course of the pandemic until then,
6:49 pm
the emigrant families will try to find their new home here. address sick is professor for socialization and conflict research at the university of bill of health. here in germany, professor, thank you for joining us on the show. would you ever have imagined that it would get to this point where people would actually immigrate overseas? because of coven 19 measures? no, the immigration of groups, especially feminine, is not a new petal. and members of the protests have already emigrated and support us live abroad. they have emigrated to reasons of conviction, as well as to escape prosecution. so we have in class we have some in class in canada where former journalist office, real estates, we know that one of the most critical spokesman is now living in turkey. we know the formation of the us book community historically it's, it's one of the strategies of the protesters and the denial to caught up with the
6:50 pm
situation. but what, what is now relevant is to observe what happens in these colonies. is there further radicalization are they producing propaganda so and we need to link it to the multiple forms of protest in the immigration. it's one part of the social media offer a lot of of possibilities to create these parallel societies and communities. you said that it's just one part of this protest. it does it tell us something important about the intensity of the opposition here in germany and other countries, or is it french, how would you look at it? no, we would say that this is one element and may be the last step in the process of radicalization . so the, the one group is leaving the country. the other group are further radicalized in to, into a polarized ideology and into violence where we speak about radicalization. i speak about a radicalization into ideology and violet and spent this immigration is one part.
6:51 pm
it's a central element. why? because the distancing the distancing to the former system, the distance thing 2 o 2, the former networks. so the distance to traditional and majority norm syndrome is one of the most relevant elements in this radicalization and it's growing every we saw in the last week we saw around 50000 people in germany in the streets. we have over 30 to see 1000 right wing us who count themself among them. we have network of corona deniers at the study spied by the university of vienna and edinburgh estimate that nearly 9 percent of the population of germany belong to the steamer and it's a very heterogeneous group. and the distance is the central element. not too long ago, in fact, we saw a torchlight marching from the house of the health minister in saxony. that's a german state. do you expect to see more violence,
6:52 pm
especially as we near this debate on a vaccine mandate in germany? nice lacy clear evidence of her the radicalization. when we defined radicalization as extreme ideologies and violence, we have an increase in public statistics in a group based and, and racist based hate crimes. and we see many protests, it's not, it's not that the amount of people is increasing. so, so, so the corona protests and 20 trained t that we saw, huge protest but, but now it's going very much low color. and, uh, the people who are now in this movement become very extreme. and the mandatory vaccination. this, the topic of monetary vaccination was always the bridge to the center of society. so for example, in spring this year we run a representative, sorry, in germany and 70 percent. this representative survey agreed to the statement
6:53 pm
corona's use plus re max a nation and 18 percent. archie agreed, and this, this mandatory vaccination is not perceived by the protest. us as something which is good to fight the grown club iris. but it is a complete, complete giving up of their freedom and it's increasing the idea we have to show resistance. and so right now we are losing all, all rights. all right, andreas sick as a professor of socialization and conflict research at the university of feel a felt here in germany. thank you very much. thank you very much. now it's time for you to ask and us to answer. here's of your question for our science correspondent dirk williams. why do i need a coven 19 vaccine if it doesn't prevent me from catching the disease?
6:54 pm
oh, i think that this question more than any other illustrates how governments and health care authorities have, have really struggled with messaging in this pandemic. i'm to answer it. let's go back over some of the stuff that they could have probably communicated better. first, i think, is the fact that despite really great efficacy numbers from clinical trials, the vaccines that we have are not perfect silver bullets. and we should never have expected them to be. what they have so far, proven to provide is some very effective short term protection from serious illness and death caused by cove. it, it would be great if that protection were indefinite but, but there are indications that it might be last long term. and then we'd hoped one recent model based study that's gotten some attention, posits that if sars covey to becomes and dominic then re infection and people who
6:55 pm
got at once could on average, occur again in just 16 months now. if correct, that obviously has implications for durability of immune response in vaccinated people as well. but that's just one prediction. and over the course of this pandemic, it feels like those have proven wrong a lot more often than they've proven right? so i would encourage people to focus more on what we really do know now. um, like the crystal clear data based statistics published by the c d c and the u. s. they've showed that although vaccines haven't prevented coven 19, or it's spread complete. they, they are unvaccinated. people are still 5 times more likely to test positive for the disease than vaccinated people are. and more importantly,
6:56 pm
unvaccinated people are 10 times more likely to end up in the hospital and 10 times more likely to die. so does being vaccinated guarantee you won't get covered 19 or, or maybe even die from it now. but for at least a while may be a long while back. seen certainly do stack the deck a lot more in your favor. boom or science correspond derek williams. there i'm seeing there's a in berlin, that's it for our show today. thanks watching. they help with with
6:57 pm
cheese known for his venus sandra, but a tele renaissance genius. but she also had

a dark side for years he painted hel, just as masterfully and mysteriously as the poet dantes depicts bought italy's inferno 15 d w. no small acts can inspire big changes to meet the people making a possible on e go africa. joined them as they set out to save the environment, learn from one another and work together for a better future. ah many thoughts to you all for tuning in africa in 90 minutes on d. w. o .

every journey begins with the 1st step and every language with the 1st word alert. clinical niko is in germany to learn german with why not learn with him. with the chef, it's simple online, on your mo bile and free t w's e learning course. nico speak, german made easy. ah, i'm just kinda, i think that's hard. and in the end it's a me, you are not a lot of to you anymore. we will send you back. are you familiar with this with the smugglers with lions, the what's your story. ready i mean, wasn't, i was women, especially and victims of financing. i love to take part and send us your story. we
7:00 pm
are trying always to understand this new culture. so you are not the visitor, not the guests. you want to become a citizen in full migrants, your platform for reliable information. ah, ah ah, this is dw news live from berlin, the latest surgeon cove, at 19 cases, worrying governments around the globe. many are imposing new restrictions and looking for ways to stop the rapid spread of the highly transmissible. omar con
7:01 pm
berry also coming up galle maxwell found guilty of helping sexually abuse young girls for a decade. survivor say is a step forwards towards justice. for the victims of jeffrey epstein, we miss you. we love you. we thank south africans remember nobel peace prize, laury and human rights activists, desmond tutu, ah, and william bluecross, and it's good to have you with us. surgeon covey, 19 infections, or worrying governments around the globe. many are hastily introducing limits on new year celebrations in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus official say the highly contagious omicron variant is driving the latest search. despite
7:02 pm
a shortage of tests, the u. k. has been reporting record breaking case numbers just like denmark. many countries in europe, a seeing unprecedented peaks amid the rapids spread of the omicron variant in germany. case numbers are also rising, but for now still comparatively low isn't in schools. and overall, we're a bit more disciplined than some of our european neighbors. asia mosques are especially effective against on the chrome that sets germany apart. we cannot forget that england and denmark, bailey had social distancing measures in place recently. and masks were not born. that is certainly different here in germany, just as in bought one sandwich lunch one, unless the end of the year come may be deceptive. few tests were administered during the holidays and numbers reported more slowly. health minister col lauterbach says the actual volume of cases could be 2 to 3 times higher, and a spike may be seen quite soon. queues at test centers are increasing. this location in berlin carries out over a 1000 tests
7:03 pm
a day. this and we feel it's coming that the numbers are slowly increasing on the same thing by mid january. that should be a more realistic picture of the situation. but the number of confirmed omicron cases is increasing at a faster pace in northern germany as entirely possible that the proximity to scandinavian nations is a factor. omicron is very dominant there, so the virus may be traveling over the border. i think everyone understands that a virus will not stop at border studying is just the was fun again finish. i had my other federal and state officials in germany a do to meet on the 7th of january to map out a strategy to combat the spread of the virus. let's dig into this a bit more. we have dr. faculty on the line in epidemiologist and a senior fellow at the federation of american scientists and he joined us from washington dc. dr. welcome back to deed of e news. first, you know, so we were hearing, of course, every day, these record number of cases all across europe. and yet there's plenty of resources like booster shots and increase testing and masks. so what then is driving this
7:04 pm
latest surge? well, thanks for having the 1st booster shots work, but booster shot role as you know is very inadequate. is incredibly slow. many places they take time for to work, and con, increases exponentially. will do, sir. you can only roll them out, logistically feasible as you can, but this is a virus on current is $5.00 to $6.00 times more contagious than delta, which was already twice contagious in the strength of last year. so we're talking about strain that potentially 10 times more contagious than before. nothing we do right now is enough to keep up unless you think of something on a blanket decide what scale. and that's why when the mitigations were used to p, i'm across delta and other barrington check will be sufficient enough against all crime. and with high cases you're going to boom, the number of people infected and ultimately overwhelm the hospital. so you talked
7:05 pm
about blanket restrictions there, i guess jerry about locked downs and we've seen countries take different approaches, some of them lighter or touch some of them heavier, but yet cases are huge everywhere. is there an argument for fewer restrictions like we've seen in the u. k? no fewer restrictions is not the way in by the way they blanket mitigation. i don't necessarily mean lockdown. you can have, for example, back in passports. you can have much more aggressive things like math mandate which, you know, germany, austria already have and of course premium no more clock, no more surgical. ready new spitting mask premium. all of these are blanket mitigation in these blanket mitigation or what is needed to curtail or exponential arrive. and of course, if those are not enough, then you have to go to the next layer. but there's other things like ventilation standards, indoor air, just infection. all those are blanket level societal guidelines and ro,
7:06 pm
army that could be put in place in lieu of a lockdown. and of course indoor dining restrictions as well. but we need blanket restrictions because boosters increases linearly. this virus increases 5 to 6 or more contagious, lee and exponentially. that's why what we do now with boosters. it's too late by itself a to curtailed, as we have to think of more aggressive measures are right. dr. r eric faculty, we have to leave it. there are lots more of course we can talk about and hopefully we'll get a chance to thanks for joining us. and let's have a look at some other developments independent mac, south african researchers. i found a booster shot of johnston, johnson's coven, 19 vaccine is 84 percent effective, that preventing hospitalization. frances banning the consumption of food and drinks in cinemas, theaters and sports menus, as well as on public transportation. as part of its efforts to stop the spread of
7:07 pm
the corona virus, and new york city will ring in the new year at times square. despite record numbers of coven, 1900 infections, the event will be scaled back with smaller crowds and visitors will be required to have proof of vaccination. and for some of your other non pandemic headlines, russian president vladimir putin and his u. s. counterpart joe biden are set to discuss tensions over ukraine in a video conference in just a few hours time. washington has warned that the massive russian troops build up near the ukrainian border may signal innovation. mosque however, chooses nato of eastward expansion, doctors and sudan, se security forces have shot dead 3 protesters as thousands demonstrated against military rule. tens of thousands of people brave tear gas and defied a security lockdown in khartoum and other cities. they're calling for a peaceful transition to free elections. police in hong kong have formerly charged
7:08 pm
to senior editors from the online pro democracy news outlets stand news with sedition. they've been identified in court documents as former stand news chief shown from quinn. and patrick lam. yasmin comes a day after authorities rated stand uses offices. a jury in the u. s. has been british socialite, elaine maxwell guilty of helping the sex offender jeffrey epstein, abuse under age girls over a period of years. after 5 days of deliberations, the new york jury found maxwell guilty on 5 counts, including recruiting and grooming epstein, teenage victims. the verdict could see the 60 year old spend the rest of her life in prison, recruiting and grooming teenage victims and trafficking a minor. these are the heavy charges of which british socialite, galle maxwell was found guilty by the new york jerry. the road to justice has
7:09 pm
been far too long, but today, justice has been done. no one, no matter how powerful or well connected it is above the law. delaine maxwell is the daughter of british newspaper. baron robert maxwell, in court accuser showed evidence of maxwell's close relationship to late fine and sheer and convicted sex offender, jeffrey epstein. epstein was jailed in 2019 based on charges of sex trafficking minors, but he committed suicide in prison while awaiting trial. in the current court case of killing maxwell, she was found to have helped epstein systematically procure young girls some as young as 14. the charges against maxwell were brought forward by 4 victims, but many more feel they have been served justice. this is a victory for all the victims of miss maxwell and abstain. moreover, i think this is a victory for all young children, boys, girls, women,
7:10 pm
and men who are victims of abusers like this. it will give them the needed push to step forward and to speak their truth and to hopefully get justice like these young girls have with respect to miss maxwell, the defense as to 60 year old is being used as a scapegoat for other people's crimes. i. we firmly believe in glens, innocence. obviously we are very disappointed with the verdict. we have already started working on the appeal, and we are confident that she will be vindicated everyone the healthy, have a happy new year. how you doing, maxwell now stands to spend the rest of her life in prison. if she receives the maximum possible sentence of 65 years, let's get more now from heather driven a. she is from the rape abuse and incest national network. it's the largest non
7:11 pm
profit anti sexual violence organization in the u. s. thank you so much for being here to talk about this important topic. what does this mean exactly, for the survivors? this verdict has come out. thank you for having me 1st to are so relieved to see the guilty verdict and this trial and for the survivors you have been so great and gone for so much to reach this moment to finally see someone being held accountable for what they experienced. we know that for survivors of sexual violence, the odds of having a perpetrator held accountable are very low on. so this is a strong message that people can be held accountable even years later. and even if they are powerful and well connected. exactly. so because that so often is not the case, do you think this verdict, is it a turning point anyway? will there be more accountability to perpetrators or more protection for survivors and victims? i think this is part of the positive pattern that we've been seeing. you know, we've seen several high profile,
7:12 pm
very powerful individuals from harvey weinstein to maxwell now being held accountable for their crimes. and that sounds a powerful message to people. we know that the statistics are low for how many people actually get justice through the justice system. in these kinds of cases, particularly when they are stacked up against a perpetrator with financial means with powerful connections, a lot of survivors feel that it might just not be worth it to subject themselves to the reach harmonization that often goes with the legal process. if they don't have a chance of justice, hopefully people are seeing that that tide is turning. that was heather revenue of the rape abuse and incest national network. speaking to me just a little earlier. now people in south africa have been paying their respects to archbishop desmond tutu in a memorial ceremony at saint george's cathedral and cape town. that's where the anti apartheid icon once delivered. sermons against white minority rule during the
7:13 pm
