  • huge hopes of being invested in this little job, the hope of life returning to normal before fear and masks and social distancing drinking.

  • But reality looks very different.

  • The vaccination campaign has only just begun on.

  • It will be months before anyone's guard can be let down way.

  • Don't want to split our society on at this point when not everyone can get vaccinated on when It's not even clear whether vaccinated people might still spread the virus.

  • There can't be any special rights for immunize people way that may be so, but divisions may crack open in Germany.

  • Nonetheless, restaurants have a right to throw out unwelcome guests.

  • Businesses condense.

  • I'd who to employ.

  • It's their right.

  • Of course.

  • They can say that somebody who's a bigger danger because they haven't been vaccinated, so we want to limit our risk.

  • Will Germany become a two tier society?

  • Airlines that only admit vaccinated passengers pubs, which refused entry to the UN, immunized.

  • How long does the vaccination work for?

  • But otherwise I'm in favor of people who've been vaccinated having advantages.

  • Things should be the same for both groups, Aziz.

  • Long as it's possible that vaccinated people might still be contagious.

  • There are people who can't be vaccinated for some reason, but there are also people who don't want it.

  • Should I be considerate about, um, went off Mandy's course?

  • Alexis names Alter the position of the German government is clear.

  • No discrimination between those vaccinated on those not and if necessary, that will be written into law.

  • Germany is reckoning with its highest daily coronavirus.

  • Death toll.

  • For the first time since the pandemic began, more than 1000 people have died in a single 24 hour period.

  • Germany had a relatively low death rate in the first phase of the pandemic, but has seen a steady increase in recent weeks.

  • Restrictions meant to stem the spread of the coronavirus have been tightened since November.

  • A current locked down, due to remain in place until January 10th, now looks likely to be extended.

  • Here's German health minister, Jens Spahn, speaking moments ago, 1129 deaths this morning alone, 1129 families will experience this new year in mourning.

  • These numbers show how brutally this virus still strikes.

  • Three infection and death rates also showed that we're still very far away from any kind of normality thing in this situation.

  • I don't see how we can return to pre lock down mode as hard as it is.

  • This also applies to New Year's Eve tomorrow.

  • It is a necessity that this is to become the quietest New Year's Eve that Germany can remember.

  • I'm joined now by DW political correspondent Emmanuel Shah's Emma Stern and somber words from the health minister there, even as the vaccine is being rolled out across Germany, what do these numbers tell us about the situation here?

  • Well, it's simply tells us that the situation is not good.

  • You mentioned that this is the first time that there's over 1000 deaths recorded in a single day.

  • There's more than 22,000 new infections.

  • Now the head off the Robert Com Institute, which is, uh, monitoring the pandemic here in Germany, say that this could be due to the backlog to the delay in reporting those infections over the festive period.

  • But this could also be designed that scientists were fearing off the beginning of a third way for early January after the festive period.

  • So just as Health Minister Jens Spahn say this is bound to mean that we won't be returning to normal any time soon.

  • Everyone looking for something to hang onto as we move into the new year.

  • Emma, Is there any room for hope in the near future?

  • Well, President, talking about the last time I talked about the light at the end of the tunnel when referring thio the rollout of the vaccine So this could be the lights.

  • The only thing is that we don't know how long this channel still ease and the pandemic being far from being over.

  • There's still some tough months ahead.

  • Added to that, there's protests continuing process from people who don't approve the handing of the panda me by the government or from anti vax.

  • Is that being said, two thirds off Germans plan to get vaccinated and has Mr Jens Spahn said he was hopeful that the vaccine will be made available to the general public by me.

  • 2021.

  • All right, D W.

  • Political correspondent Emma shares thanks very much for that.

  • Meanwhile, Britain has become the first country in the world to authorize the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University.

  • It's the second vaccine to receive emergency authorization from the U.

  • K authorities after the biotic Pfizer jab Trial data suggests the latest vaccine is less effective but easier to store, and transport authorities say they plan to start rolling it out within days.

  • Britain is struggling with a surgeon virus cases that are threatening to overwhelm hospitals.

  • I'm now joined by John Campbell.

  • He's an independent health analyst and educator and joins us from Carlisle in the north of England.

  • Dr.

  • Kamel, thanks for joining us.

  • This pandemic is hitting your country and so many others very hard at this time.

  • How important is this new vaccine?

  • It really is.

  • But this new vaccine is the best news we've had in the pandemic, and it is going to change the situation entirely now in the United Kingdom.

  • We're going to start a mass rollout of this vaccine from the Fourth of January.

  • We're going to be vaccinating a million people a week.

  • From that point on, that's only going to build up the logistics and infrastructure develops.

  • Ondas Well, is that what we're going to do is we're going to give one dose of this vaccine on, then wait a 43 months before we give the second dose.

  • So that means an awful lot of people are going to start to get a fairly good level of immunity straight away without waiting for the second dose.

  • And, of course, it also means we can vaccinate many more people.

  • So it really is going to change the situation in the United Kingdom on din time in Europe.

  • But this this vaccine, this new one Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine is the second.

  • But we've already seen in trials that it's not as effective as the by on tech fires of one.

  • Is it good enough?

  • It certainly is good enough.

  • Anything over 50% is going to be efficacious.

  • But we had the managing director of fires are making a press announcement just a few days ago, saying the efficacy of this would just be a good as the Pfizer in the Madonna vaccine.

  • Now we don't have the scientific data on that yet, but it's looking very promising on The key seems to be in the gap between the two doses, so giving a longer gap between the first and the second dose seems to increase the efficacy.

  • So although we have efficacy figures of, like 62%.

  • 70% up to 90% depending on the dose ing regime.

  • What he says is we found the right formula, and we should be up there with the others.

  • So we are expecting high levels of efficacy.

  • So yet?

  • Yes, it is good enough on.

  • We believe this vaccine is safe.

  • A swell.

  • That certainly sounds promising.

  • John Campbell, independent health analyst.

  • Thank you.

  • Okay.

  • Thank you.
