8:06 am
government has not taken the clear on why it is more serious heat even long long standing stones of or just off the government within the media have come out and oscar what exactly happened. and how has the government responded to this criticism . well the government is not teaching he could this is a move that is so quiet it is absolutely just you can think for only 218 months on it's fought over the last week we have heard about it often do we don't want that action to go up and down and just. earlier today we got a strong statement from the embassy in australia criticizing an article in an australian news and blamed them when the government or its handling of the crisis is saying that this is misleading and malicious so the government legally says that they are doing the best of the vaccine go without a strong. read to the press and that even investigate why i'm source is not knowing
8:07 am
but they refused to admit any mismanagement on their watch all right that's our spanish reporting for us and david will be touching base with us throughout the day thank you michel and germany's chancellor angela merkel has confirmed that germany is sending medical aid to india as part of an international efforts to bring the covert 1000 crisis they under control the event on the wall we'll work with other countries to ensure that we can help india we are working hard on finding ways to get oxygen production facilities there the whole of europe is working on that and i also discussed this with the prime minister of portugal today they are currently holding the e.u. presidency and we want to do everything we can to help india. and here's a look at some of the major developments in the penn demick the united states will start sharing up to 60000000 doses of esther's

8:10 am
to discuss the vaccination drive. chancellor angela merkel dubbed it a meeting of hope the situation in germany remain serious with daily 1000 cases still alarmingly high and the number of coronavirus patients in intensive care still growing but the vaccination drive is picking up speed so much so that germany may soon be able to offer vaccines to everyone not only those at high risk. on the whole we expect the people in the high priority group will be vaccinated by the end of may. that means that depending on how many vaccine doses we get we can abandon the priority list as of june at the latest. this is not mean that everyone can be vaccinated immediately but that everyone can make an appointment. after a slow start during the 1st few months of the year now around 23 percent of
8:11 am
germany's population has received the 1st dose that's thanks to an increase in deliveries more reliable supply chains and fairly doctors now also administering the shot. with more and more people vaccinated the debate on whether they should enjoy more freedom from restrictions is also mounting chancellor merkel said the government is preparing legislation to ease some measures those who have been fully vaccinated or those who have recovered from corbin 1000 should be exempted from having to get tested to go to non-essential shops or from quarantining after returning from abroad they would still however have to continue following mask and social distancing rules. i think that's unfair a more nuanced solution must be found. it is absolutely clear to me that people who have been vaccinated must get their basic rights back it's not a question of whether they get special rights but that they can live normally again . i think it's good but it's
8:12 am
a pity that it's not my turn yet but her turn may not be far off chance and america's promise to offer every adult in germany a vaccine by the end of the summer seemed impossible to many only a few weeks ago now hopes are high that her pledge will be met. and for more on this i'm joined by news shelf and author and yes so why has chancellor angela merkel and the leaders of germany's 16 states not been able to agree on what freedoms vaccinated people could have. well kristin in the last few months of this pandemic we've seen lots of these meetings between the chancellor and the state leaders that have dragged on long into the night where there's been lots of controversy debate it's been incredibly hard to find consensus and it was almost like this time around they decided this was going to be meeting with some good news and they put the difficult decisions off and it
8:13 am
was clear from the start that the most difficult decision of this that was on the agenda at this meeting was the really reinstituting basic rights for those who've been vaccinated. and it seems that decision has just been pushed further down the road really and also bear in mind that here in germany a national lockdown law only just came into effect on saturday infection rates are still inching up at the moment. and of course if you look at the figures we just saw it there only just over 7 percent of people have actually been fully vaccinated . so it does seem still pretty early to be making those decisions about what rights they should be getting back right but this is happening as we exit saying that this vaccination drive is kicking in yet what the growing amount of vaccinated people now increase the pressure for them to be granted more freedoms. well yes and no
8:14 am
really of course as more and more people are vaccinated there's more demand for them to get their rights back and the economy needs it badly too of course. but it also makes it easier in a way of course you have more people vaccinated you have more support for the you know for giving them their rights back and it also there's an argument that it might persuade those who've been reluctant to get vaccinated and to get finally get their job but also this could all be a very short discussion in a way because if the vaccination drive really does go ahead as quickly as merkel has now promised and everyone can you know apply to get a vaccine come june then we may have reached herd immunity as soon as anything and may all be able to lead normal lives again that's an issue of not reporting for us thank you anna. now anyone looking into the sky last night in berlin was able to catch a glimpse of the so-called pink super moon shining about the german capital it's
8:15 am
named after a pink color that blooms in the spring time the moon occurs when the planet is at its closest angle towards earth in its orbits here it is illuminating some of the city's most famous landmarks like the brandenburg gate. i caught a glimpse this morning studying stuff that's if you have to date has business next i'll see you at the top the next hour.
