cologne. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program india has recorded a new surge in coded 19 infections daily cases have topped 168000 pushing india past brazil to becomes the world's 2nd worst hit country authorities are hoping to curb the spread by imposing new restrictions and trying to persuade more people to get vaccinated but many states are also complaining of a vaccine shortage. an indian festival unlike any other. the cause for celebration is quite different. this medical college is taking part in a so-called vaccination festival
9:02 am
a 4 day program to accelerate the national rollout. i'm visiting all the vaccination centers in my area and congratulating the people being vaccinated and the health workers including doctors nurses paramedics and everyone involved in the vaccination drive we are doing is to encourage vaccination what i was going to get in india is a vaccine drive had been relatively successful but a recent shortage of doses forced some vaccination centers to close. prevention measures vary across india lockdowns are in force in many areas including maharashtra the hardest hit state. owned by i think a lockdown shows the failure and incompetence of the local government logjams are not a solution to anything businesses have been suffering for over a year now i have a business myself and can tell you how much i've lost. with new infections skyrocketing and deaths rising steadily many are all too happy to get jobs.
9:03 am
it's hoped the vaccine festival could make it safer for the crowds who still turn out in huge numbers to india's famous religious festivals. and for more of the story let's bring in. what could this vaccination festival achieve especially considering the dramatic surge in new cases in the country. let's not. are not new to india or you will be you know if you want to encourage people to join out do was participate in the act of welcome back because even though in europe has recorded and. given a small traction. and you still falling behind on a good speed have recorded instances of backing has didn't seem not enough the odd laying out this is a plot an attack by the prime minister do you lose his pocket of being do i ask you

multiple measure of late night was 24 hour 24 hour x. nation drives as well as just actions on bars and restaurants and any kind of market gatherings because these new venue devised ask users to use it as a given all those challenges that you think you've highlighted there how high is the optimism that these measures can indeed be effective. but aren't you to look at behavior and just see. this is something that national government has pointed out you need to eat but once again even mild distinctions are ruled out on the other hand we have. to leave it out i'm not religious that's what that is do we make now with thousands gather and get or do you get books coming out that many of these people who don't last that 8 neck shoot going on in the states as we speak and what these is not a massive political jackies including those hated by the national body the part you

don't that why do you keep to wind it is so much we want to be still finding out how why did you quit i don't don't see the giant fascination she's not doing better because of the source but again soon quiet talk to predict what the numbers continue to try and sneak maybe because people are not getting up at all she's the mission just fall in delhi thank you and now for some other developments in the pandemic china's top disease control official says that the country is formally considering mixing covert $1000.00 vaccines to offer greater protection against the corona virus that is after data showed china's domestically produced vaccines for less effective than some alternatives australia has scrapped its target of an ocular late in the adult population by october health authorities say that the astra zeneca vaccine should no longer be given to people under the age of 50 and health workers in the united states have broken a new record by inoculating 4600000 people in one day officials say that more than
9:07 am
72000000 people have been fully vaccinated. let's take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world. israeli public media have cited intelligence sources saying that the spy agency and mossad carried out a cyber attack at the iranian nuclear facility hit by a blackout on sunday iran has blamed israel for the incident and vowed revenge ukrainian production restarted a day earlier at the plant in defiance of a shaky international agreement. protests have broken out in the u.s. state of minnesota after police fatally shot a black man relatives have identified him as 20 year old to want a right. the state governor says that he is closely monitoring the situation tensions are high in the city as the trial of the former police officer accused of killing george floyd takes place. in germany it is
9:08 am
a dual for angle america's mantle at the head of the conservative ticket germans go to the polls this autumn to elect a new government and after 16 years as chancellor angela merkel is not running again well now her christian democratic union party and its bavarian sister party of the christian social union are close to deciding who will replace merkel as the conservative candidate for chancellor and those 2 politicians are running have a look army lush it has already succeeded merkel and want to respect she is the christian democrats party leader and also the state premier of north rhine-westphalia he is a close ally of anglo american coming up marcus order also wants the job he is the bavarian state premier and leader of the bavarian christian social union soldiers national profile and has broken during the pandemic. both say they are ready to take on the top job. of a career we've announced that we are ready to stand this candidates for the chance
9:09 am
of the ship. and we've agreed it should be a good process. as we set off towards this shared goal involving both parties and of course together with a parliamentary group. than the face that we have established both as a suitable and both of us are ready it's important that we show respect to one another i can say 1st off regardless of how the final decision turns out we were together very very well. and the chief political correspondent melinda crane is standing by belinda walk us through how ultimately the candidate will be chosen. it will be chosen ultimately by the leadership of the c.d.u. of the chancellor's christian democrats as mr surjit himself put it it is the big sister of these 2 conservative sister parties and he said he will respect its
9:10 am
decision if they want him to be the candidate candidate then indeed he is glad to do it now the leadership of the c.d.u. is meeting today and we've heard that there will be a decision within the week that apparently is what the leadership wants of what mr soda wants what's noteworthy here is that actually mr nash it has the bulk of his support in this city your leadership group within the parliamentary group of the c.d.u. and within the population at large there are many who would prefer this to search but it seems that the city of leadership is concerned about a shift in the balance of power toward their area and that just shows that between these 2 sisters there is quite a bit of rivalry and therefore this is by no means a done deal mr lasher himself thinks he has a very good chance is to come up with what are some very interesting dynamics linda
9:11 am
and of course it's coming at a time when you know the c.d.u. has taken a big dip in the polls tell us in terms of you know looking at the broader public who is writing highest only look at the opinion polls. opinion polls at the beginning of april showed that absolutely it's mr souter who is far and away the more popular candidate in the population at large 54 percent of those surveyed said they would want surgery where it's just 19 percent she preferred mr lasher so there is a very good deal of support within a larger population and we've seen that in recent state elections where the c.d.u. did not fare well in fact last year the vote to be mrs green party. from. lash it has been positioning himself as being the most committed of the 2 to upholding merkel's legacy how far is that strategy going to go for him you think. well what some people would consider his strength can also be seen as
9:12 am
a weakness he represents a continuity for the c.d.u. a middle of the road pragmatic leader well established there even much in the in the mode of a little america herself but for all of those who are frustrated particularly with the c.d.u. leadership during the pandemic with the government's handling of the pandemic with the scandal over mass for your mint within the c.d.u. they will be looking toward new leadership and certainly that is what mr sort of represents he's not a great deal younger than mr lasher but he almost looks like a new generation he's more innovative he's older and he has made it very clear that he's interested in working with the greens and as i mentioned they have in fact been gaining in popularity nationally so in many ways mr surrogate older choice mr lasher it the more cautious choice but there are some within the c.d.u.
9:13 am
who say that if the leadership has the party's interests at heart it will take mr surtur because he is the one who can help the party prevail in september melinda crane with a view from her lead thank you. coronavirus restrictions are being eased further in england today and what prime minister boris johnson is calling a need or step toward freedom some people headed for a drink after midnight as pubs and restaurants reopened for outdoor customers jams hairdressers libraries and shops can now also open their doors again for the 1st time since england went back into lockdown in early january and today's move follows a fast vaccine rollout and falling numbers of corona virus cases and deaths that authorities are warning against complacency. for more let's bring in barrett mask who is joining us from london bear get how big is the anticipation right now. it's really a day that
9:14 am
a lot of people thought couldn't come soon enough as you have mentioned some people flock to balls at 12 midnight even in small places up north and minus degrees loyal customers were going to bars because they really waited for the day i speak to a small restaurant here in london and they are booked up outdoor spaces booked up until june so people really are trying to make the most of it had dresses as well booked up for months and months on end because english people have a rather long lockdown for really almost since the beginning of the year and this is the sense that certain retallack to normality which is starting today and the lifting of curbs it only applies in england how about other areas of the u k. well yes it's a devolve power in scotland for example there will be no changes on this day and
9:15 am
wales people will be allowed to travel again in 2 way out so there was a travel ban that the english people could not go across the border that is being lifted but altogether even in england i have to say that there is a cautious opening for example when it comes to meeting indoors meeting other people indoors privately that's still not allowed to people are only allowed to mix outdoors or in shops and public places but for the next opening for the next stage there will be another few weeks almost a month so that the authorities can see what each step opening is actually doing with the pandemic in them has had its fair share of opening to the end then seeing for example and last winter a huge 2nd wave. of people have been are now being much more cautious and how would you you know in that context and with that background how would you gauge the mood would you say right now i mean is there
9:16 am
a sense among people that this could really be the beginning of the end especially given you know the rate of vaccination or are there concerns to your point that there could be another dramatic wave. i would say it's the hope that this is the beginning off the end but it's really far from a certainty the vaccination has been very successful and people are feeling a bit more secure but then there are also many scientists who are warning that this is not a safe place and the world is not a safe place that we see the virus ravaging in other countries and there is a scab that could be new variants that maybe the existing vaccines that we have to employ here in the u.k. would not be effective against sue there is still the caution but still today i would say for for many people at least celebrating this little victory that there is some the matter to resuming to the life on the streets in england to get mass in
9:17 am
london thank you. the irish prime minister me home martin has warned against a resurgence of 6 tarion conflict in northern ireland his comments coming after some of the worst violence in the province in years last week scores of police officers were injured in clashes with mainly pro british rioters angry over the northern ireland's new economic status following brags that now unrest has been spreading in the pro irish nationalist community. and an easy calm in belfast writers have battled police for the last week now they have pulls the violence abs of respect for the queen following the death of prince philip. but that is unlikely to last. a full protest as a way forward i mean if you show up dying all options and you don't do not listen
