8:05 pm
a virus and from my point of view but you have even more the next days and so it may be a good idea however on the other side you should. keep in mind that you also have the risk to impart the virus in the whole country not even by that not only by the patients transported by the people transported but all that the flight crew may be and so you have to be careful that you don't import the virus that all of it was safe and you have people all around the world especially here in europe asking how dangerous is the virus now what do you say. you know it's difficult to say it's be cannot compare it right now with other viruses the rate tell it to 8. to 2 and a half percent so it's. mostly elderly patients people are affected and you
8:06 pm
have to have a basic disease so you can compare it maybe was a very strong and a wife. and we understand that australian science is they've created a lab version of this strain of the coronavirus trying to under stand in nature russia and china say that they've started working on a vaccine health fast and science is deliver an effective vaccine in order to stop this outbreak. you know they mention that they can test the they are exene. and then maybe july only in a small amount of people because you don't know if the scene might have side effects or anything else so it's not not possible to test these already and the whole population so we have to wait until these tests are fine and afterwards you
8:07 pm
can continue to that scene. but that maybe take even more time than i have a year we have been told that the germans who are being brought back from will be put in quarantine for we understand 2 weeks is is that a reasonable amount of time is that the time that is necessary. it's a minimum time i would suggest because it's a. time however if you have one people in this may be infected and he will be get ill and let off the one week so the other wants maybe still have to be caught in time or so it depends on if you have infected people in your county and face and if they have a context you need to primetime them all separately so that you can avoid that and maybe you can be find this 14 days but i think it's difficult ok martin the lab for interdisciplinary medicine in frankfurt tonight martin we appreciate your
8:08 pm

8:10 pm

8:11 pm
really watch it without being touched people have been working together for so long and they had formed relationships and of course many british parliamentarians they just broke down in tears when they realized that this was the final time they were standing up there and talking for even within the european union and they had to just fold up take their boxes and leave yeah you can only begin to imagine what they must be feeling the debate as you said that usually emotional one has to listen to what molly scott keto a pro european british member of the u. parliament in the green party what she had to say today i hold in my heart the knowledge that one day i will be back in this chamber celebrating our return to the house of your thank you. as you get a standing ovation there people are going to yours with their what were the other
8:12 pm
moments there to remember. today. yeah how could you not feel for her and with her and so many of them really felt that even you know the few that did this the number of parliamentarians who had just 6 of months because they were just elected last year felt bitterness but others who had sort of saw the life's work go down the drain people had been in parliament many times so many years they were leaving in tears and it was oh really only if his affection that was that was sort of triumphant and saw the work of their political life sort of at a summit the culmination and saw this is a triumph for everybody else left in tears and in the end they saying all right lang syne and holding each other's hands and i've never seen anything in all those
8:13 pm
years in the european parliament people are standing up there and hugging each other and singing together and so it was just an incredibly emotional event and all the bitterness of bricks it and all these these struggles and all the fights was people and so many times you know some of them must have thought you know those bloody folks would they finally leave but today all this was wiped out and they realized that they were the friends and partners and neighbors and this was really a wrenching goodbye and it is certainly a positive message to take away that despite the fact that the u.k. used leaving the e.u. there was such a sense of camaraderie they are today on display for the world to see or basically brussels i was literally that you. were some of the other stories now in are making headlines around the world an official in the democratic republic of congo so is that $36.00 people have been killed in

8:17 pm
rejected the plan but international reaction has been cautious saudi arabia saying it appreciates trumps efforts under this plan palestinians would gain statehood but give up wards tracts of land jerusalem would be the undivided capital of israel but with parts of the city's east reserve as a palestinian capital. tear gas fired in the west bank as israeli troops respond to palestinians protesting trumps peace plan netanyahu has dubbed it the deal of the century but people here are adamant that they want to accept it. does not give us any of our rights as palestinian people therefore we reject the deal of the century we want the right to return we want to just solution. deal of the century has been totally rejected and it's a shame for anyone trying to support it. it's places like this the turkey
8:18 pm
part of the control over sea jewish settlements in palestinian territory they're viewed by palestinians and the international community as illegal but trump still would allow israel to annex them something many of the say there is here which supports. it give security to the settlements and give security to israel if they implemented as it is written there will be fewer terror attacks less danger on the roads and also from an economic point of view it will move us forward . donald trump has been pushing ahead with policies supportive of israel my vision presents a win win opportunity for both. a realistic 2 state solution that resolves the risk of palestinian statehood to israel's security the very heart of the land of israel where our patriarchs prayed. our prophets preached and our
8:19 pm
kings ruled has been outrageously branded as illegally occupied territory well today mr president you are puncturing this big log. both in the u.s. and internationally there has been mixed reactions to trump's plan which most hopeful that trump's vision for peace. yet protests continue in the west bank 6. well political correspondent kate brady got reaction today from your gain hearts he is a member of the german parliament and foreign policy spokesman for chancellor merkel's conservative c.d.u. party. so had donald trump has described this deal as the deal of a century what's your opinion. one of the biggest challenges we have in security issues is to find a solution for peace between israel and palestine. i appreciate that the president
8:20 pm
stays to the 2 state solution but i am afraid that probably some of the demands he mentioned towards palestinians concerning the territories will not. open the door for negotiations and unfortunately every new attempt on a peace process which is a failure at the end might increase frustration on both sides and maybe increase the confrontation and not decrease and therefore we have to be is very careful with such proposals so which elements of this proposal do you think could realistically be implemented at 1st glance it seems that mr netanyahu is being offered everything that he wants while the palestinians seem to be being offered very little. they offer the 2 state solution they offered probably that could be capital of palestine but they ask for. legal control over the territories that are now
8:21 pm
occupied by israel and i think this is a very crucial point for the palestinian side and. if you look to them and to the political situation there i think it is not a strong leader that is able to jump over fences and to file into a breakthrough new ways of negotiation with the israeli government or probably with other partners and i think there's a huge lack of trust wise words have between the conflict crops and therefore probably the starting point for a new peace process should be building up a new trust though that probably negotiations can be fruitful that what we saw yesterday evening. i wish it would lead. to a positive result but i'm afraid that it will not lead to a positive result and what does germany stand right now and netanyahu has plans to annex some 30 percent of the occupied west bank we are government to state to the
8:22 pm
united nations resolutions this is a question concerning territories but also not the status or legal status of jerusalem i think going behind that or to united nations resolution basis is. not decreasing the conflict but potentially increasing the conflict and if we germans can't do anything to to build trust between the 2 confrontation. sites then we will do that today we heard the speech of israeli and president evelyn in that order one must talk and he said both sides have to make compromises not only the israeli side but also as a palestinian side but also wise words and i think this is a good message on that day. thank you very much or another setback for the u.s. campaign to stop china's hu away from building 5 g. networks over worries of the european union is urging member states to screen and
8:23 pm

interference by known e.u. states or state backed actors are becoming more sophisticated and more widespread the european commission is asking member states to assess the risk profile of 5 g. suppliers and apply restrictions when necessary whether or not that's the case for huawei remains to be seen. the e.u.'s decision mirrors measures approved by the united kingdom on tuesday both the u.k. and the e.u. a falling short on demands by the united states for a blanket ban for the chinese firm. this is the w. news in these are our top stories hundreds of foreign nationals are being evacuated from the chinese city of the epicenter of the corona virus outbreak and it comes as authorities confirm more cases of the virus and with the death toll rising to more
