12:03 pm
are reporting vaccine shortages prevention measures across india very lock downs are in force in many areas including maharastra the hardest hit state it's also home to mum by india's economic powerhouse. books i think shows the failure and incompetence of the local government not a solution to anything businesses have been suffering for over a year i have a business myself and can tell you how much i've lost. just like the holy festival india hopes its vaccination festival will attract the population. for more on the story let's bring in a usenet misha was she standing by for us in delhi hina misha on the one hand we're seeing a strong magic surgeon covered $1000.00 cases and at the same time millions of people seem to be gathering so why are there are no restrictions in place. there are supposed to be distractions and be good at the who. are supposed to show up
12:04 pm
with well when they get excited forgets but the spinners on the backs of to look down people are also expected to maintain social distancing from family on the eurasian of the festival it is usually it looks he wants and it's been reduced to a month because of global search but of course it will be pretty sufficient that's what i'm trying to do is have come here if i think this is just not possible or believe florists with crowds this massive didn't create did it not if they go about finding people meeting all stampede similarly in detail actions going on i don't do country we have seen massive political realities headquarters by opposition parties as well as the. party prime minister that it will the massive rallies today itself so why the country is imposing other restrictions that often so on specially monster tips that such events and that allows us as humans will as the spike even
12:05 pm
for them and the michelle we heard about the south 4 day vaccination drive what could that achieves. now to me it looks like and all the effort by the prime minister to do you want to utilize his white or black beauty to appeal to the people to drop out at high not less to get vaccinated get is not you'll get vaccinated restless dave it has had over 2 decades now but of course i didn't come to the good vaccine miley has impressive number one up over 100000000. i don't $1000000.00 have been just but once again you look at the sites of population it's not that large and it's still $99.00 talk it's and despite the countless it is vaccine hesitancy so the festival is an effort to counter that. have not seen it just slip uptick in out and in the meantime what other measures are authorities using to try to curb the spread of the virus now there's still no national measures
12:06 pm
that have been announced yet some experts believe that this. these announcements may come after the election season is over but still prostate i don't understand since depending on the situation with john in each of these teams and in some districts not putting somebody tons to do my gosh up there have been done so to enforce its own districts the leaders the leaders have also announced the need why you don't lock don't ask us is continuing to search all the 60 county cases yesterday just from that state on the other hand state like denny's and the markham pools and by be have already night because there are distinctions on bars restaurants and any kind of off gatherings but of course you high in guest will stink in p. d. in the number of cases countered it distorts that these. may be. our correspondent mr dyce while they're reporting from delhi thank you very much.

let's take a look at some other developments in the pandemic now germany has passed 3000000 infections the robert costa public health institute says more than 78000 people have died from or with coated 19 china's top disease control officials as the country is formally considering mixing covert $1000.00 vaccines to offer greater protection against a corona virus that's after data show that china's domestically produced vaccines were less effective than some alternatives in australia has scrapped its target of an ocular leading the adult population by october health authorities say the astra zeneca vaccine should no longer be given to people under the age of 50. coronavirus restrictions are being eased further in england today and what prime minister boris johnson is calling a major step towards freedom some people headed for a drink just after midnight as pubs and restaurants reopened for outdoor customers gyms hairdressers libraries and shops can now also open their doors again for the
12:08 pm
1st time since angle of went back into lockdown in early january the openings come after a fast vaccine rollout and falling numbers of corona virus cases and deaths but authorities are still warning against complacency. and some tell us following the story for us from london hi charlotte as we mentioned the prime minister boris johnson saying this is a major step towards freedom i imagine the people are pretty excited about these opening so what's the atmosphere like in london today. absolutely samy as i'm sure you can imagine there being queues outside some shops people best but desperate to get back inside those stores also among. rather we've seen images of people lifting up that pint in celebration off to midnight last night we're also hearing from number one strong winds and the hospitality. rain is that bed for weeks in
12:09 pm
advance over the weekend people so excited to get back a pub and restaurants had to be pointed out an outdoor areas that are right at the moment in areas on still restricted but people here are going to really do feel like this is the step towards the end here of this pandemic the business isn't. so much over the last year with tens of thousands of jobs gone many businesses are closing they are on the roof to be reopening again and the prime minister boris johnson has said very clearly that this is a cautious but civil rights matter with the end of restrictions at the same time charlotte we know that health officials are warning that people should not become complacent there are still concerns about the very end for example spreading quickly so what restrictions will remain in place. right well this is absolutely a moment to mock and i mean to celebrate to some there are also these restrictions
12:10 pm
in place as i mentioned indoor dining for example still isn't out there still and then it's on how many people can gather outside which will of course have enough on effect for the funeral of prince philip which is. this weekend a number of people as well will you know people won't be allowed to meet and told me the mixing of household is not out so this is a cool shift anything over strict with it being told is part of a multi step plan with gaps in between gaps we find we gaps in between to ensure that the authorities here are able to analyze the data and make sure that as the criteria is still being met the case is on rising to see much of the vaccine program is still going ahead as planned but the prime minister has said that this is a one way road to freedom. w charlottesville simple reporting there from london good to talk to you. let's check in now on some other headlines from around the world
12:11 pm

12:12 pm
a sabotage attack on the country's largest nuclear facility and says it will retaliate israel has not directly claimed responsibility but media reports there say in israeli cyber attack was behind the incident the natanz enrichment site suffered a large scale blackout on sunday just hours after you graham enrichment was restarted at the plant it comes barely a week after the u.s. and iran held indirect talks in vienna aimed at reviving the nuclear pact that former u.s. president donald trump had abandoned. let's get some perspective on the story now we have to buy indecl garfield's and iran analyst thank you very much for joining us what do we actually know about what or who was behind this cyber attack. at this point obviously we have to make some educated guesses and i think the fact that attacks like this have happened before and that it has always been an open
12:13 pm
secret that that any israeli operation was behind it we can assume this time that this is the case again but as you already pointed out a lot of speculation is going on and nobody has claimed responsibility so far but it would be the most likely scenario and mike ok so let's talk about what happened because iran says that the state centrifuges were damaged tell us some more about this infrastructure and why it matters why it's important. that stands as a key nuclear enrichment site in iran and obviously a key target for those who assume iran is in fact pursuing a. nuclear program that is supposed to produce nuclear weapons in the end right now there are talks going on in yemen as you already hinted to and we have over the last week seen in the tend to tack on and on slack tanker that has been supposedly carried out by the israelis and this nuclear facility is critical for
12:14 pm
you want enrichment and its progress in enriching and it can be assumed that this progress and. the development of new centrifuges was supposed to be. undermined and that's what this attack i assume has been about well iran says this is also israel's effort to sabotage these negotiations in vienna they mentioned where do those talks stand right now. there has been in fact some promising signals that the u.s. and iran in particular in directly conveying messages to each other through europeans the chinese and the russians who are also party to this issue the nuclear agreement that they are trying to find their way out to reste or the nuclear deal that was signed in 2015 and israel has been an explicit opponent of this and with criticism coming from the prime minister but also other parts of the israeli
12:15 pm
leadership that this deal should not go ahead and this is why everyone assumes that israel has been behind these operations to halt these diplomatic talks going on and as you said and on still a lot of speculation what and we're not sure but it is not the 1st time that iran has claimed that its nuclear plant was sabotaged so how vulnerable are their plants for to outside attack. well we have to say that on the one hand obviously the security detail in all of these nuclear sites is by the fans but at the same time cyber operations. carried out by for example are obviously of most high tech quality one could think of and i don't really think that any security set up can in fact protect. against these attacks and that's also the reason why one can assume that mossad has been behind it because of the high advance operations skills that are necessary to in fact conduct such an operation
12:16 pm
iran analyst joining us from to saddam thank you very much my pleasure. to germany now and the race for who will succeed chancellor angela merkel germans go to the polls this fall 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 very close to deciding who will replace merkel as the conservative candidate for chancellor and these 2 men here are in the running on and on the left has already succeeded machall in one respect he is a christian democrats a party leader and also the state premier of north rhine-westphalia but rock asserter you see on the right of the screen here also wants a job he's the bavarian state premier and leader of the christian social union so it is national profile has grown mightily during the pandemic now after
12:17 pm
a meeting of both parties leadership on sunday both men said they are ready to take on the americans mantle. of we've announced that we are ready to stand this candidates for the chance of the ship. and we've agreed it should be a good process. as we set off towards the shared goal involving both parties and of course together with the parliamentary group. in your face because we have established that both as a suitable and both of us are ready it's important that we share respect to one another i can say 1st off regardless of how the final decision turns out we will work together very very welcoming. let's go right to our chief political correspondent linda crane for the latest on this story hi melinda we're hearing that the christian democrats and i'm going to party that their executive committee has reached a decision tell us more. indeed the executive committee said
12:18 pm
a short while ago that they are throwing their full backing behind armey lash it who is also the head of the party as your report noted and the fact is this was not unexpected the c.d.u. leadership the executive committee is known to support mr lasher not least because they're concerned about the shift in the balance of leadership power toward the various so question is is this the last word and that is not clear because the executive committee said explicitly they did not. agree to a formal resolution in favor of mr lasher it rather this represents the opinion of the executive committee and when mr souter said yesterday that it would be the big sister city you think the bigger of the 2 conservative sister parties that ultimately decides and that he would agree to their decision he did not refer
12:19 pm
to the c.d.u. executive committee he referred to the broader c.u. the membership and the fact is that amongst the broader meant better ship pretty early in the parliamentary group but also in some of the regional associations there are many who actually would prefer mr circa ok so it's not entirely decided yet but who is more popular of these 2 men. in broader opinion polls it is definitely mr surtur with 54 percent of those surveyed say they believe he would be the better candidate for chancellor with just 19 percent supporting mr lasher that's a poll from early april and the fact is that if we look at the standing of the c.d.u. at the moment they have been dropping in the broader public support and there are many who believe that mr surtur would be the man who could perhaps help the c.d.u.
12:20 pm
again and fresh went what about the fact that i'm unless it really has been the one to position himself as the one to uphold on the americans legacy does that help him . that potential strength could also be a weakness he's same as very much in the in the style of underland now call a pragmatic moderate politician not given to bold moves he's not a great deal older than mr setter but it's almost as if there were a generation gap between the 2 with mr sir to definitely looking more innovative bolder recently expressing a lot of support for environmental issues very close to the greens who are gaining in broad support so for anyone who's frustrated at poor leadership during the pandemic for anyone who has the feeling that the c.d.u. has lost its way definitely they would probably tend to prefer. our chief
12:21 pm
political correspondent linda crane with the very latest thank you so much. you're watching t.w. news still to come on our show 60 years ago today it was an event that changed the world so get cosmonaut yuri gagarin became the 1st human in space. that's coming up in a moment but 1st sports and golf. has become the 1st to japanese man to win a major title after claiming victory at the masters matsuyama started the final days play at the augusta national course with a 4 shot lead a shaky style in the back 9 on sunday almost put the win in jeopardy but he held his nerve on the 18th hole to finish one stroke ahead of his closest challenger and claimed the famous green jacket. in bundesliga football minds of their survival chances with a late victory against cologne the 32 win continues their climb up the table but
12:22 pm
the result means the end of the road for cologne coach mark askew still has been fired with the team stuck in the relegation zone. marcus gives dos cologne had a one in 7 games at home coach would have feared the worst when mine scored with their 1st shot on goal john paul put the finishing touches on a neat new. close one handed the way back into the game one half time penalty the verdict on 3 to do is equalize a just reward for cologne's efforts domination continued in the 2nd half the free kicks finding its way to elliott skeery headed to host since who deserve to lead. the football can be a cruel game when you're fighting for survival cologne barely had time to enjoy that goal as minds hit back with a sucker punch. but devastating council rounded off by kareem.
12:23 pm
the visitors had found their way and it was another break down the left that won the game in injury time. play on very very the might see here are you taking a shot pasta motionless t.-mo for. heartbreak for the hosts who seems not to believe what they were seeing but the reality came quickly after the game given the sack with cologne in big big trouble. meanwhile shall come at the bottom of the table earned their 2nd victory of the season as they beat out spoke one nail the only goal came after just 4 minutes once what set out took advantage of some sloppy goalkeeping set that was celebrating his 24th birthday it was felt his 1st win in 13 games but they're still in hot water just so russia is celebrating 60 years since the cosmonaut yuri gagarin made
12:24 pm
history as the 1st man in space the city of st petersburg put on a laser show on sunday to mark the anniversary the guard. it's achievement made him a national hero and handed moscow a victory in its space race with washington. and that 1st flight still captures the imagination of russians 6 decades later. with the ousting off into the unknown and a place in history. inside the vostok one rocket was eureka garren as soviet air force officer. he became the 1st man in space orbiting the earth for 108 minutes and the 1st human to see the planet from the heavens but i'm watching the forest the rivers the clouds by the time get darren objected out of his space capsule and parachuted he was
12:25 pm
a soviet hero. he was celebrated by people and leaders alike. corralled crammed into moscow's red square to cheer him. 6 decades later homemade tributes skybound. hundreds of space and p.c.'s gathered to launch cardboard and plastic rockets into the air in st petersburg celebrating cosmonaut extent a pantry living memories flooded me across him was part of the ground control team at the launch 60 years ago. we had a few sleepless nights before april 12th so on the day we felt anxious to be honest i really needed to sleep but i was so tense i couldn't even close my eyes we had

12:30 pm
thoughts on the great bluffs of the 20th century. the present day hoaxes. the trade no more. manufacturing ignorance a 3rd all to double. alibaba defies chinese antitrust regulators she has an ali baba group saw after beijing slapped a record fine on the chinese tech giant we talked to our china correspondent and experts clifford coonan to find out more also coming up trade fairs in times of the groan about this pandemic the world's largest industrial show kicks off digitally in hung over isn't worth it for exhibitors. welcome to do your business and want to get jobs and berlin good to have you with us so shares in tech giant
12:31 pm
alibaba surged on monday closing up 6 and a half percent as investors seem to shrug off a record antitrust fine imposed on ali baba by the chinese government regulators had slammed to the take giant with a $2800000000.00 penalty after a months long probe concluded it had been abusing its dominant market position to sanction comes as beijing cracks down on major chinese take platforms including as payment plan from and groups over allegations of anticompetitive behavior and misuse of consumer data. plenty to talk about and that's why i'm happy that clifford couldn't is here the studio clifford's good to see you. do these chinese regulators do you feel that they're losing that they have no will bite i mean they slapped this record fine on ali baba and investors a jubilation well i think the markets like clarity so maybe they feel that this is
12:32 pm
this. had about it. with with the chinese government's been going on that since october and i think maybe the markets are hoping that this will be the end of the this is a signal that they're drawing a line under us but i think that trust is a very weird concept in some ways in china so i think it's maybe more to do with. its if we had concepts i just. probe in china doesn't mean the same as in the united states that's right i think what you have here i mean china effectively you know the congress party is is the only party so it kind of runs has a monopoly on power you've got a lot of these very powerful state owned enterprises the huge state banks you've got all this you know the state utilities all these different monopolies operated by the communist party where jack ma comes in it was an area that the congress party had no expertise and he suddenly built this enormous empire which they clearly see as some kind of threat so it's more than just an anti trust ruling that like as you get in germany or in europe or in the u.s.
12:33 pm
it's also tied in with the whole with the whole power game that's going on in china as well and particularly the growth of jack as as a tycoon on a powerful political figure so from from let's say from a western perspective dispatching still have a point in cracking down on these tech companies or is it just as you say a palace game i think it's i think it has economic political impact so i think the congress party political you think you have a dish here is the 100th anniversary of the party next year there's going to be a big. to be 10 years of xi jinping in power and he's going to probably stay in power so he needs to politically entrenched himself on account of a threat like that jack but economically it's also a sign that they they're they're trying to unravel things i mean. took on the state parks and that is something that you just kind of to and i think ultimately those 2 issues are what it comes down to so i think we have 30 seconds so briefly clifford will it change anything with these take platforms i think it will i think the
12:34 pm
others have also been fined not by as much like $0.10 and baidu have also come in. i think the government didn't really have a dog in the bowl and i think for a while they just didn't really get what was going on the fact that these are are not really these are tech forms but they're also immensely powerful financial platforms and so i think it will change how they act in terms of the other or operations when i clip it going in there is always a good to have you with us here on this particular topic on the chinese regulate. it is a major international showcase for the latest in industrial technology the hanover fan on this year the world's largest industrial show focuses on official intelligence machine learning and robotics and normally the city of hanover would be buzzing with guests from around the world but in times of the coronavirus pandemic exhibitors and visitors can only meet in the virtual space. hot over airport would be open but who would even want to visit just to go into quarantine for 10 days especially since nothing is happening at the exhibition center anyway
12:35 pm
just 2 years ago 200000 people came to hanover for the world's largest industrial show $6000.00 exhibitors showed off their latest innovations this year exhibitors and visitors are staying at home instead of networking digitally on one of the show's platforms. many of our customers are facing major challenges to the lack of trade fairs no personal meetings to initiate partnerships no new customers and no platform where they can see how far the competition actually yes last year the trade show was cancelled entirely this year 1900 exhibitors have agreed to present themselves on the digital platform for feed they pay up to $30000.00 euros for their participation just a very small fraction of what they used to spend on an exhibition stand it doesn't bring in much for the trade show organizers but they're hoping that visitors will
12:36 pm
be back at the fair in large numbers next year. so let's talk a little bit about this with financial market correspondent chelsea delaney in frankfurt because chelsea just said digital trade fell like this one it doesn't actually make sense for example just of they actually get something out of it. well it's definitely step optimal for a lot of these companies that would normally participate and i fear like this these conventions these trade fairs are actually really important for a lot of companies this is where they strike deals where they find new customers that it's really crucial place to find to find more business and while there is in this case a digital platform it's much more difficult of course to sort of strike these longstanding and long term relationships with the potential customers it also for germany. extremely important economic source so it's estimated that about
12:37 pm
20000000000 euros usually comes from fairs like this as a result of all of the industries that pop up around conventions like this so this these digital fairs have also been a bit of a blow to the german convention industry and of course this comes at a time where the german machine sector german engineering is already having a little bit of a tough time it's very much focused on china how do you go in there. well luckily the chinese market is very strong right now china was one of the 1st to emerge from the pandemic and they've really been importing a lot from germany that's the main reason why germany's manufacturing sector has been holding up so we've heard from industrial giants like foster siemens that china is really their main market right now so that we stop part 4 manuf manufacturers are still quite strong ok to delay new from food thank you so much.

12:40 pm
belgium though the main suppliers with italy and germany as well the main impact has been on the process of importing plants so the administration involved since january 1st is huge and that's causing costs and delays to the actual import as well red tape and added bureaucracy have left retailers and millions of locked down gardeners with scant pickings in mainland europe garden plants are growing on a vast scale in warmer climates many varieties grow more energetically then they're sent over to live out their lives in cold grey britain is rosemary grown in italy and i mean from our telling each her flower tree or shrub has its own european passport but these are no longer valid in the u.k. every plant before it crosses the water wherever it's coming from has to be given a fighter so to certificate that has to come through the plants into the u.k.
