10:05 am
steve this coming up with its own set you shouldn't and metal depending heavily what kind of soldiers they're seeing the state of mind that i just mentioned for example which has the lid considered a complete lockdown because they are watching the drink almost 60000 users in guest orders so it is just yesterday for example on the other hand we have a state like denny that sent a good mark incident automatism to measure a late night 24 hour 24 hour vaccination drives as well as just actions on bars and restaurants and any kind of mob gatherings because these new venue devised ask users do you suppose you've given all those challenges that you think you've highlighted there how high is the optimism that these measures can indeed be effective. those aren't who did it will create behavior and the kind she does. this is something that national government has pointed out you need to eat
10:06 am
but once again even my oldest actions are ruled out on the other hand we have invented a. religious festival that is under way by now with thousands gathered and it already deployed coming out that many of these people are without lost that a national was going on in the states as we speak and with these there's another massive political jackies including those headed by the national party and. so while there is a surge when one's we still finding out how did you quit i don't see the drive through x. nation should start doing that or the cause of the surge but again supply it's hard to predict what the numbers continuing to try and sneak peek will i'm not picking up precautions and i suggest while in delhi thank you. and now for some other developments in the pandemic china's top disease control official says the country is formally considering nixing covert 19 vaccines to offer greater protection
10:07 am

10:08 am
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 a lot of people thought couldn't come soon enough as you have mentioned some people flocked 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 that outdoor space is 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 endured a rather long lockdown for 4 really almost since the beginning of the year and this is the sense that there is. to normality which is starting today and the lifting of carbs it only applies in england how about other areas of the
10:09 am
u.k. . well yes it's a devolved powers to in scotland for example there will be no changes on this day and wales people will be allowed to travel again into wales where there was a travel ban that the english people could not go across the border that is being lifted but all together 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 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 what each opening is actually doing with the pandemic in them has had its fair share of opening to the end and seeing for example and last winter
10:10 am
a huge 2nd wave. of people have. 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 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 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
10:11 am
would say for for many people at least they're celebrating this little victory that there is some normality resuming to the life on the streets in england to get mass in london thank you. let's take a look at some other stories making headlines around the world israeli public media have cited intelligence sources as saying that the spy agency 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 uranium 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
10:12 am
tensions are high in the state as the trial of the former police officer accused of killing george floyd takes place. the center right candidate in ecuador's presidential elections has claimed a victory a veteran banker guillermo laso won over 52 percent of the runoff vote he campaigned for open markets and foreign investment as a way to restart the economy which has been hit hard by the pen demick. to germany now where it is a dual for angela merkel'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 this chancellor angela merkel is not running again now her christian democratic union party and its bavarian sister party the christian social union are close to deciding who were placed merkel as the conservative candidate for chancellor and these 2 politicians are running arm in lashins has already succeeded merkel in one respect he is the christian democrats
10:13 am
party leader and also the state premier of north rhine-westphalia he is a close ally of mark or so of are also wants the job he's the bavarians a premier and leader of the various christian social union soldiers national profile has grown during the pandemic and both men said that they are ready to take on the top jobs families of a career we've announced that we're ready to stand this candidates for the chance of the ship. and we've agreed to should be a good process to ask me set off towards this shan't go will involving both parties and of course together with the parliamentary group. and. fisk if 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 god regardless of how the final decision turns out you
10:14 am
can work together very very well and 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 certain self put it it is the big sister of these 2 conservative sister parties and he said he will respect its 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 soto 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.
10:15 am
it seems that the c.d.u. leadership is concerned about a shift in the balance of power toward the very and that just shows that 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 out the letter some very interesting dynamics and then 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 preferred mr lasher so there is a very good deal of support within
10:16 am
a larger population and we've seen that in recent state elections where the c.d.u. not fare well in fact last year the vote of the recent green party. 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 some people would consider the strength can also be seen as a weakness he represents a continuity for the c.d.u. a middle of the road pragmatic leader well established there he much in the wind in the mode of the american for self 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 produced within the c.d.u. they will be looking toward new leadership and certainly that is what mr sort of
10:17 am
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 the older choice mr lash it the more cautious choice but there are some within the city you 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 the crane with the view from her lead thank you. you're watching d.w. news still to come 60 years ago today it was an event that changed the world to still be a cause but not during a gun when taking the 1st human in space and in the bundesliga minds of snatching a late winner to secure 3 crucial points in their relegation battle against cologne
