migration for the difference on how to bring about peace in libya and syria. i'm 75 years after the liberation of auschwitz death camp we ask what more germany needs to do to address it's not your past and ensure the holocaust never happens again. i'm for girl welcome to the program france has announced a 2 cases of the deadly corona virus from china the 1st to be reported in europe a short while ago french health minister agnes supposing announced of the cases have been confirmed in paris and bordeaux both patients had traveled from china she warned that new cases were likely to follow then china the virus has killed at least 26 people in affected more than 800 others the outbreaks epicenter is the city of will hodgman who. by province but it's now spread to at least 12 cities
10:02 pm
which are all now on lockdown. a city of 11000000 people with almost no one on the streets trains planes buses cars almost nothing leave so enters with han . hospitals and the epicenter of the outbreak of overwhelmed with patients so overwhelmed that authorities have now decided to build a new dedicated hospital from scratch hoping to complete construction in just 6 days. in existing hospitals health workers are working tirelessly against the virus. knows includes it would of course we're worried and so are our relatives. but we're nurses and will do our job as long as we wear the uniform just by the rising number of cases the world health organization has refrained from declaring a global health emergency. to d.g.
10:03 pm
which is provided by the emergency committee is that no more of the time. but china isn't taking any chances transport links within and to a number of nearby cities have been cut and the fear of contagion has produced dramatic scenes like here at freezing the airport where a man suspected of carrying the virus was confined to a quarantine container. the lockdown now covers more than 30000000 people and it's putting a serious damper on the union new year holiday. as a look at the efforts to combat this virus and wherever viral or just i'm 101 here who is from like us to university welcome to day w. so now we have a 2 new cases reported in france how prepared is europe for this outbreak. well not really i must say because i've been saying these things for last 2 weeks that the british and that we are having at the moment at any or indeed you and you
10:04 pm
can also entire europe these are insufficient the reason is that people have been given only a little act that some instruction about the clinical side of this virus that is insufficient because if some people have a very good level of citizenship they might be able to understand that but if you know any announcement over there on the course even they are intermingling with the patient of it that the traveler that are coming from other countries so there is a there is not really a much preparation especially for the situation that is going to be out there not only in china but abroad so we should expect more not just in europe but around the world absolutely the problem with these kind of lattice is they are highly contagious continuous mean that it can transmit from one person to enter the person very easily and a lot of the factor that is very important to understand for general public is that these why this is have been in china for
10:05 pm
a while so they have some sort of immunity need assistance i mean is that we don't we mean in europe we don't have any exposure to these what is it before so bold why this is if they had by chance come to us it would be a lot more impact than what we are seeing in china because we don't have any existing immunity to assist us i mean a speech like this is there's no further problem with detecting and controlling this the fact that its symptoms could be pretty much anything that could be flu that could be a cold. that is one of the challenge because if you just see. anything that could be the same as like a common slope that is one of the challenge however looking at the history because if we look at all of the cases those have been reported in china but also abroad they have some legs and we move on so my office is has right from the beginning is being that of all those people or the traveler who are coming directly from war on should should be caught and teams should be tested at least for the temperature and
10:06 pm
if there is any temperature and some sort of signs we should definitely put a special focus on to those patients because the disease if if some of these cases would go on noticed and both the general public you can assume the damage it would cause so at this stage your recommendation if you were asked would be that we look at people coming from from will have boots on and check temperatures and that should be done across across europe at all sort of ports and airports absolutely absolutely because if anybody says well they are inspecting people the test site come up is the temperature and it's pretty easy to do it said i must counting you have a thermos can just add before added it will tell you how much temperature is there and if there is a temperature there is no harm to look on to the street they have on the person is coming home and if there is any need to be screened we heard in the report though the world health organization has decided not to call this an international. health
10:07 pm
emergency so what does that tell us. well that tells us that. they look more onto the historical perspective of these guys as they thought that the why this and that has caused infection in total and 3 was not put under emergency situation as well which killed more than 800 people anyways so what they've been really looking into the current context is really underestimating the potential of these viruses that they could pose into rest of the word here the largest has not been there yet so there is no harm if i would be having any power to decide about there's no to put relatively so what does this really mean if they were to be up against you for international concern is that they will say don't develop collate all the efforts internationally instead of nationally and then make a strategy we're told this infection so there is no harm doing so thanks for
10:08 pm
