well but he has press conference and among players as he took his 1st training session with no date yet fixed for the season to resume. you're watching news from berlin for all of us here berlin thanks for the company see the market but. after. combating the corona pandemic. where does research stand. what are scientists learning. background information and. our corona update. coded 19 special next on d w. b r fighters want to start families to become farmers or engineers every one of them has a plan of the initial. sending is just the children who have already been the boy
and those that will follow are part of a new process. they could be the future. granting opportunities global news that matters d. w. made for mines. countries react to the pandemic we have travelled by slow downs. fighting for every life in one of germany's rotavirus office box so european countries are starting to relax more restrictions won't all this time. no is not the kind of next measures. europe is unlocked schools businesses restaurants and factories have all been
shuttered for weeks now people are to moralize with the arrival of spring they've been enjoying what they still can the sun in the park some fresh air but many are missing a sense of community some countries like denmark and austria already beginning to lose them the most severe restrictions others think it is too early for them to know what the experts is the virus on to control can public life return for normal and will the warmer temperatures now arriving in the northern hemisphere slow the spread of the disease. these are some of the questions we'll discuss in this edition of covert 19 special here on the w. news i'm chris coburn really good to have you with us now the longer the shutdown is in place the more pressing becomes the question when constricts social distancing measures be eased here in germany public officials are yet to decide on an official strategy so let's get an expert's view to be escort is a professor of public health and if it in me ology at berlin's shot at
a hospital welcome to our program to b s let's talk about the weather 1st here there have been some including the u.s. president saying that rising temperatures are bad for the virus are they. well if you look at ski areas it's reporting factions and if you see this further up the virus that there's really no differences between regions that are warmer and regions that are colder so i think the virus is really not affected by temperature it is true that you're into cold weather season that is skin inside and those inside your throat is more susceptible 'd for getting an infection that may be a factor but it don't think that it by rights is really affected by temperature so springtime meaning it's not necessarily a bad time for corona. it's not a bad time for the buyers it's time for for us and enjoying the sun roof and so fully getting some fresh air certainly that sunshine helps a lot of moves it's
a good time for all of us it's and spring right now but what about iras i don't think that makes much of a difference to me as the number of reported cases in germany is declining in italy and spain the countries hardest hit here in europe are reporting receiving death numbers where are we in the timeline of this pandemic. one thing one has to understand that the virus cannot be stopped the reasons why these measures and the physical contact restrictions i'm place is to allow the health care system to leith and some regions even in germany we know that. hospitals are really on the edge so this was the reason why we certainly support it these these measures now and then it is really over the so-called units he is reaching that is a long way to so if not relax some measures it's not that iris is gone the virus is
there and we have to deal with the virus for quite some time until we have pixelation able or until enough people have been infected with the virus and have immunity against the virus nevertheless the severe social distancing measures they are taking their toll on people and number of public officials here in germany and other places are talking about lifting some of the strictest countermeasures is it the right time to do that. well scientists than many experts agree it is not discussing this office the air nobody likes to cook is really hard nash's entering into place this is the right time will be improving in 2 weeks in 10 days nobody really can tell what it thinks is a good time now to discuss how we can lift this restrictions and how we can move into the future and as you know there are medical data also of the economic data
social they are psychological data and all of these is not really helpful or for the health of the people so we have to really start to think of how move on to to really start to go back to a life that is certainly not the normal life that we used to but to a life that makes sense and makes. us starting businesses again and allowing kids to go to school so i think it's a good time to discuss this right now all right lester let's talk about they have now germany's academy of sciences one of the most renowned research institutions in the country says primary and secondary schools should gradually open again and it should be mandatory for people to wear face masks on public transportation what is your take on that. i think these are her goods and reasonable of such actions many experts from various fields have been involved in this recommendations and i
think that there is a really good starting points we all have to understand however that if restrictions are lifted that we may see an effect of the healthcare system again and that we have to increase some of the restrictions that potentially this will be not a law for some time we have to evaluate this very 'd carefully indeed exports are doing to stoop to recommence specific measures to get politicians who then has to make their decisions but i think the recommendations of the national academy of science are 'd leading reasonable and they are good starting points also it is important that they set that should not really isolate specific care groups such as the elderly or such as people with certain medical conditions i think that was also a very important state and to me as briefly one of the most important aspects of such a strategy of easing these restrictions well it is. new
really have to know what is possible and people what they can do i think we all society understood the importance of defeating his virus and the importance of the patient of the healthcare system so i think we should also count on on to society that they really work with everyone to make this. epidemiologist to be escort thank you for talking to w. thank you. so the discussion over when and how to access the lockdown is still waging meanwhile spring has arrived in many countries in europe and in recent germany people try to make the best of their situation over the easter weekend which meant catching some rays while trying not to catch the virus. spring has caught and in parks across germany you wouldn't necessarily know with that the country is in lockdown having spent weeks cooped up indoors many people
are experiencing a fresh appreciation for nature. you can send me nothing from the tree being at site but of course i'm not meeting friends or socializing and it has a calming effect last thing. for me it's liberating to be actually in a chair tools. in germany you are still allowed to go out alone or with one other person but it out to exercise all right just to prevent it from fresh air. even when you're soaking in the spring fun you still need to make sure you're sticking to social distancing rules. another man who certainly wishes he'd have more time for a nice walk in the park but our resident corona expert eric williams has been very busy thinking about and answering the questions you sent us here's our latest installment. can you get the coronavirus and share any symptoms.
based on what we know right now it looks like around one out of every 6 people that catches 19 gets seriously ill and develops difficulties with breathing symptoms and others who have tested positive for the disease range from serious to very mild and some people who test positive have no symptoms at all at the center for disease control in the u.s. believes as many as one in 4 people who get the disease show no symptoms know about vital information to have as asymptomatic carriers might remain perfectly healthy themselves but contribute dramatically to transmission. how many people are asymptomatic would also help us nail down the real mortality rate of the virus which continues to be guesstimated and finally it's important in terms of fighting the disease if we can figure out why some people don't get sick that information
could help us in. race to develop therapies. could survive in cave 19 meaning me this question is closely tied to the question of why some people can carry the disease but are are asymptomatic from what we've seen so far the corona virus infects everyone but some people don't develop symptoms and that probably has to do with their genetic make up past research has shown that genetics do have an influence on the course of viral infections and scientists are looking at some key genes very closely in the covert 19 pandemic especially the ones that include 4 and controllable the expression of an enzyme in the cell membrane called ace 2 it's what the corona virus uses as a gateway to get into the cell could variations there make some people more
susceptible than others maybe it's pretty unlikely though that there will be a single genetic variant that determines whether you get a mild or severe a case of covert 19 the 1st wide scale research studies in the area are ramping up now but they'll take time to carry out and evaluate. and if you have a question for us about the virus simply post it in the comments section of our v.w. you tube channel and that wraps up today's edition of covert 19 special for more on the event i make to check out our social media channels and our website that's d.w. dot com which has dedicated covered 9000 pages in 30 languages i'm chris cuomo and thanks for watching and before we let you go many scientists around the world are calling on governments to provide people with face masks if they intend on easing lockdown restrictions on taiwan seems to be a step ahead on those sorties there has sort of vending machines where people can
