english football on its head. future breakaways they're now turning to germany with the biggest biggest ownership work in the premier league. hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us india is covered 900 death toll has surged past 200000 it's one of the highest death tolls in the world the numbers are rising fast driven partly by a new more infectious berry and countries around the world have begun sending medical aid to india including desperately needed oxygen as the wave of new infections overwhelms its health care system hospitals are being forced to turn patients away as authorities scramble to get equipment to those who need it most. in some indian hospitals not. oxygen supply has run out finding.
people who might have survived the disease are dying as a result. there's no oxygen in all of town. so that a night my mother was admitted 3 days ago i was told she was fine and recovering all the tests were done then last night they said they didn't have any more oxygen she passed away. for the whole hospital's an i.c.u. units across the country are overwhelmed after weeks of a sharp rise in cases the health care system is collapsing. oxygen has become the most precious of commodities. i'm buying or to that i put it toward your order of the federal who come to that level. they are lowering the oxygen level one. but it needs to be higher. so this is the
problem would be to bomb them. with oxygen and hospital beds running out the government is scrambling to get equipment to the areas that are hardest hit. we have come to stocks and that's moving across the country using the country. to get it to the places that need it the most emergency supplies from the u.k. have begun arriving and more help as promised from abroad to be gets heated after the final details have been clarified with the indian side the 1st shipment should be on its way in the next few days. but in the meantime many indians are left to fend for themselves. doing all they can to care for loved ones some drive for hours in search of oxygen. i have come from very far to collect oxygen from my father. that i'm scared that although the oxygen is available today
what will we do for it's not available tomorrow. but until help arrives on a larger scale many people in india are left gasping for air. for more now i'm joined by tara rabid she's a spokesperson for the world health organization in geneva switzerland thanks for being with us this morning 1st of all we've seen pictures of hospitals in india being overwhelmed for days now can you tell us whether or not the pandemic in india is peaking or could there still be worse to come there. well morning good very difficult to predict. how this situation will all but it's important to really use your need for health systems in india. people try to protect themselves as much papers possible and if they follow my eyes there is being human bias how so aren't you as in any country when you have
a sort of combination of factors such as new variants that are likely to be more transmissible. gathering when the nation levels are low and people are reacting from the most heart attack behavior we can see do sort of explosion although we have not seen any other country on the scale that we need to need to stand with with india now and try to help as much as we can what role or the new virus variants that we're hearing about in india playing in the pandemic there. well the virus is changing and this is normal and w.h.o. we are following and monitoring these changes that occur as the markers transmit. ovulation. we have
a batch file or in the you not preparing that have been. in. brazil in south africa who can be a good job more likely to be transmissible. in a foster way that original ones when there is a new you want it has been you got to fight primary on need to understand more but it seems the barrier as well has the capacity and potential to attach human cells more easily ducks would obviously and you need more people being infected and that's what we. need to now is to try to know as much as possible this transmission rule a meeting short of people who are. followed her advice book necessarily go to hospital go but i think you are at home possible. here government.
to provide the right information to your heart. is also a consideration if you screening. permission you know where bags. of course what about the oxygen situation in india does the country have another medical oxygen or are oxygen supplies just not getting through to the areas that need it quickly enough. well there are reports of shortages of oxygen different parts of india the government. being got back trying to increase the production of oxygen in different parts of the country they're also using their air force to try to to dispatch supplies were immediately as you have already said in your program there is also international mobilization that we ensure. is providing more 1000. concentrators
us has already committed to provide $10000.00 and 1st of dollars have already arrived other countries like singapore or russia are saudi arabia have also have also started as well as you know european union started to do to mobilize support. use it is important to say that in the absence of 00 drugs for corporate banking we have only one that has been. recommended for progress of course because terry's and i found that those on the oxygen is a lifesaving and quantity and we hope that that shortages will be or comes to. mr us or a bitch thank you very much for talking with us that was tariq yes or a bit from the world health organization in geneva. now it was billed as europe's biggest indoor rock called search since the start of the pandemic

mass events can be safely held music promoters worked with one of person owners main hospitals to put on the concert and doctors say fears of a jump in infections have proved unfounded. noise when it was not a super spreading event there's not been an excess of cases and in fact there is no sign that transmission took place during an event which the public health experts believe that a combination of ventilation face masks and testing can work the venue holds 17000 people but only 5000 were allowed in. because it was a move that if we had detected 6 people who tested positive after the concept for have been able to identify the exact moment when they were infected. for example 2 who attended were later infected by their mother in law but if this is that this

socialists legally accountable for their crimes when most in post-war germany just wanted to forget the past imprisoned in the 1930 s. as a young jewish lawyer and committed left wing power fled to denmark and sweden years later he returned from exile to track down nazi criminals. after the war it seemed logical to bring about what we had dreamt of. though we were idealistic and probably over to mystic. power secured convictions against s.s. members for atrocities committed at auschwitz but only against considerable opposition that's probably a move on the problem was that people holding senior positions in the judicial system had themselves be nazis and that meant he was facing institutional resistance. national power had little trust in officialdom when he found out that
out of a human one of the architects of the holocaust was hiding in argentina he told the israeli secret service rather than the german authorities he was driven by a desire for justice and accountability. it was a great humanitarian he fought for justice and democracy not died sudden in 1968 his unrelenting battle for a better germany took its toll on his own house. the european super league to block all calls to a huge uproar among fans especially in england where 6 premier league clubs initially joined the breakaway league before withdrawing now to prevent future defections the premier league is looking at some major reforms here's more from d.w. correspondent charlotte chelsea pill in manchester. could this set the ball to english
football meet at c united of manchester's youth academy award that training for a club doing things differently. if the united at both owned and run by the fans. were just ordinary people. who actually love focal i've got a passion for football it's not a business all of the money's made goes back into the football club back into the community. in order that we can try and you know climb the leaks. and continue to make a statement as to there's a different way let's see united was set off in 2005 in protest against the takeover of premier league club manchester united by an american billionaire they're now seeing a surge of interest upping their membership by roughly 20 percent over the last week alone it's driven in large part by the actions of 2 clubs just a few miles away manchester united and manchester city are among 6 english clubs
who last week signed up to a new european super league which abruptly collapsed on to outrage from fans so many it's a watershed moment. terrible idea just the money grabbing it's on by billionaires who know nothing of the game don't care for the fans don't care about grassroots football in the u.k. demise is pretty nice to be out of and is pretty terrible but falls along kind of. excessive incremental. vulture capitalism this place become a business today's arness for a long. so it's not trying to do in terms of football the sport but we just never know when subsaharan is where you know they haven't got the clubs at best it's all about the money for. the super league debacle has supercharged schools for change here with everything from the ownership structure of clubs like manchester united to regulation now being publicly debated and many are looking to germany as a model there's a growing chorus of voices calling for english football to emulate germany's 50
plus one model that would give founds the majority voting right giving them the final say is now transcending football and getting political traction thank you so much that not everyone can unite behind at the moment we have a bi is a basic interest of this board protects clubs. so i think that's the reason for the for the for the slogan be so popular the government is now running a family review into english football with the german model among the reforms being discussed but there's skepticism meaningful change is possible in the meantime fan and clubs like f.c. united of forging their own path proof that an appetite for fun that tickles growing i think it's. time for change. events of the last week of just demonstrate it and spites me fortunately it was more than 50 plus $100.00. i think there is an opportunity now for the supporters
groups to continue to do the right light yet play so many in england the idea of being for the fans can feel like a thing of the past to united it's a model for the future. let's bring in kiran mcquire here he's a football finance expert at the university of liverpool in the u.k. thanks for being with us so fans are demanding more rights in determining how england's premier league operates what's so appealing about the german ball i think it's it comes across as a very simple model english fans have always been impressed by the body organize ation all the german fans they were ability to work together their ability to achieve change at issues such as monday night football and making sure that didn't take place so. there is a there is an affection from from english fans towards the the german approach to
football that it is much more than orientated and that's why it's had so much support to date in terms of these proposals. what reforms do you think are needed in the way english football is run. well i only don't think the 50 plus one model would work because it would involve giving significant compensation to existing shareholders so therefore i think we should be focusing in terms of governance perhaps having fans being able to appoint non-executive directors so that if they were being catered to boardroom level it could be that the government could introduce legislation to it so that fans would have some form of the share which is a effectively a nuclear option giving them and the opportunity to veto significant decisions such as the name of the club whether the club can resign from only and moving the club stadium to to another to another location and decisions which are which will impact upon the fans and for many generations going forwards of football ownership and how
it's ron this is a very powerful deep pocket to be a group of people how much appetite for change is there among those who run football in england. and there's not as far as the owners are concerned most football clubs are seen as trophy assets some obscene as potential investments which can be bought run to prove few years and then sold at a profit so as far as the owners are concerned they are very much keen on preserving the status quo and move what they want to do as much as possible was to remove the risk from paul because there are 6 seats big clubs in the premier league who do about an existing financial advantage over the office and their main concern is that if they don't qualify for the champions league that will give them a financial hit so they put their decision was to simply remove the risk of not
qualifying for the champions league by having a type of football where winning football matches wasn't important in terms of generating revenue and profits and this discussion we're having it was pushed forward by the collapse of the european super league what do you think the consequences will be of that effort to create the european super league going for i think has been a breakdown of trust as far as the football or far as he's concerned those clubs who were members all 5th of the super league which was effectively a franchise organization and the fact that they were also operating at the same time in theory on behalf of both the premier league and you a for that has left that credibility in tatters we've already seen fallout to boardroom level where manchester united chief executive edward he's now leaving the club and they certainly seems to be a greater appetite from the governments in the u.k. at least for some form of structural reform in terms of the governance and
financing of the guy kiran mcguire football finance expert at the university of liverpool thanks so much and good. in bundesliga news buy in munich have hired rb lepsius you leonardo's mon to be their next coach next new coach next season by and believes he represents a new generation of coaches sunning the 33 year old to a pile of year deal. yulian novels mom became the youngest coach in bundesliga history when he took over at hoffenheim in 2016 the coaching prodigy helped them qualify for the champions league for the 1st time ever. since 2019 he's been an r.v. leipsic the bulls have been title contenders every season noddles man has been at the helm and last season he let life speak to the champions league semifinals in a historic run not goals months sides have always made it difficult for byron
munich to defeat champions were forced to find a new coach after hansei flick announced he'd be departing at the end of the season . because i'm ok this is especially for other clubs i wouldn't have ended this contract and it cost buyer a reported 25000000 euros to get noddles money out of his rb life the contract early if that's the case that would make not was among the most expensive coach in the sport's history. the decision very good i believe it's the right direction for byron munich to go in but also it bothers me a bit that flick resigned but could not this month there's a younger option i think is the right step. if you should not lose money grew up near munich has always made it public that he stripped of coaching byron one day and now the 33 year old will start living his dream on july 1st when he officially takes over and by. you're watching g.w.
