the worst-hit country with another big surge in cases today there are now more
than 30,000 cases there two and a half thousand people have died Spain which
has locked down its 47million inhabitants saw cases increased to more than
11,000 cases more than 500people have died there in Germany Chancellor Merkel
has banned religious services and venues including clubs bars leisure
facilities zoos and play grounds they’ll also be closed Germany now has over
9,000 cases and 24 deaths from the virus well Jenny Hill is in Berlin Damien
gramática is in Madrid but first let’s speak to Mark lone who is in Rome forest
and Mark terrible death toll there today but also thousands of people2,000
people in intensive care yes Sophie the numbers really are shocking today
Italy’s prime minister said this country had overcome fascis mand world wars
but never more than now was there such a need for Italians to be United he said
that 10,000 medical students would have their final year exams scrapped so that
they could move more quickly into the healthcare system and support doctors and
nurses cases here are still soaring but the rate of increase is the smallest
now since the outbreak began so possibly the containment measures are beginning
to work and if so that could put pressure on other countries to copy italy’s approach
more closely now talking of those measures from today this is theu pdated form
that we have to fill in for all movement around the country to certify that we
are not in quarantine because of the virus or if the we’ve tested that we are
negative that in addition of course to the blanket closure of virtually all
venues across the country a week ago Sophie Italy was taking the most extreme approach
in Europe but now just look at how one-by-one so many other countries are
following suit and Damian gramáticais in Madrid also an extreme approachtheir
Spaniards locked down yes exactly right so if you can consider this Spain about
a week ago was pretty much where the UK is today so just a couple of thousand
cases and in seven days that has soared Sevenfold so what we saw out on the
streets today similar police out there ordering people to go back home stopping
their cars checking them this is Madrid’s biggest train station behind me it’s
virtually deserted and that Spain here I think is equally a sign that if you
don’t take measures quickly you get this huge rise in cases there strictions
here we’re only brought in yesterday we now have 2000 more cases just in the
last day 500 people in intensive care Spain’s Prime Minister promising a
massive economic stimulus to try to keep things going and nobody here complaining
that any of this is excessive and Jenny Hill Germany is being shut down but not
locked down quite yet not quite yet but today Germany raised its official risk
level from medium to high as the number of newly confirmed cases continues to accelerate
the health authorities up and down the country are bracing themselves here in
Berlin today they announced they’re to turn a big exhibition center into an
extra hospital with 1000 beds the authorities have pretty much shutdown every
aspect of normal German daily life now affecting leisure religion business
people have been told they should stay at home they’re being told they
shouldn’t go on holiday either in the country or abroad the government is hoping
that it can avoid following Spain France and Italy into imposing a complete
lockdown they hope the current measures will be enough but you know people here
are looking at what’s happening in those countries they’re looking at the daily
rise in cases here and they’re starting to fear that actually for Germany it
really is just a question of time Jenny Hill Dameon grammatical and mark loan
thank you.
