Covid-19: Millions wake up to tighter coronavirus restrictions

"Flying to the us from the uk will be required to have proof of a negative covid nineteen test within three days of their flight. More than fifty countries have barred traveled from the uk or have put restrictions in place as britain's sees many cases of that new variant of the coronavirus. We want to check in on italy. Which was the first european countries to be hit. Hard by the coronavirus back in the winter and spring remember those unthinkable images in the sophisticated country of overwhelmed hospitals a nationwide lockdown in place between march and may people speaking and singing to each other from balconies on wednesday italy became the first european country to exceed seventy thousand deaths from covid nineteen just as italians were preparing for their traditional celebrations of christmas. The bbc's mark lowen has been covering the pandemic all year and joins us from rome by skype. My my mark. Sixty million or so population in italy seventy thousand deaths more than two million infections. How would you characterize the pandemic right now. I would say robin Is in still in a very devastating second wave which has torn through the country on the difference between the first wave and the second one is that in the first wave. You might remember that the it was really very focused on the north of it to the on the much wealthier regions in the north and like somebody around milan which were very badly hit but they did but it did not spread down to the poor south of the country massively as we go to that time because the if the hospitals couldn't cope in the north will then me in the south they went to naples coke but this time it has hit the south as well. It's the whole country Luckily over the summer where there was a bit of a lull in the virus hospitals actually increase their intensive care facilities and ah capacities so they have been able to cope better this year. With a second wave. They have not been completely filled but That they have been in a very very bad steady. The second way and As you say debts now. I've assembly thousand cases over two million and really all this country can hope for is a christmas gift is respite of in in twenty twenty one. Well we'll what form would that take. Is it the vaccine or people being vaccinated their. The vaccinations are going to start on the twenty seventh samba long ago the eu countries and The first in line will be healthcare workers on the front line. Those over the age as it is. I'm sure Where you are as well and And yeah that just absolutely desperate and craving this maxine because not only has the as the actual at the impact on on have human health so devastating but on the economy. I mean Back before the second wave really got very bad They were ready for costing any contraction this year ten percent. And now i think it'll probably be even even worse They got to impose tighter restrictions over the christmas period closing bars and restaurants and cafes the much of much of the christmas period and shops as well so the economic fallout and of course the social impact is going on the social repercussions going to be felt for many years and just briefly what happened. Is that the same as elsewhere here in the states people. Maybe just traveled more or carried it from one place to another. We remember in the beginning in italy outbreaks were traced to people going skiing alpine countries where they could trace it right down to the ski house and then bringing it back and now we understand. There was talk of closing borders between italy and france and countries where there are ski areas or testing people. Are you know what is the sense of what happened to bring a second surge. I think that there was a level of complacency over the summer when cases were just about a hundred or seven day As opposed to the twenty twenty five thirty thousand. A day that we've been seeing in the last few weeks So people rested on laurels. It's a flood open. Its doors to tourists over the summertime salvage the tourism season which makes up a tourism makes about that. He presented the italian economy and that lead to infections. Young people going abroad and bringing it back. People kind of congregating out in the piazza's were quite busy. So yes i think that. A pretty relaxed summa and a long way is being the last country in europe to restart. Schools led to two pretty horrific autumn.

"I'm Sabrina sure infra David Brancaccio in a typical Turkish election. The president of Turkey could count on Ankara and is Denver Turkey's two. Biggest cities not this time. The Turkish opposition is ahead in both places. President type Erta one his still declared victory for his party in local elections overall across Turkey, but he's gotten a lot of criticism. Both domestically and abroad for his management of the Turkish economy. The cracks in his support initially pushed liras value down sharply. Two point five percent in just a matter of hours before it recovered. It's been largely weakening over the past month. The BBC's Mark Lowen is Dan Bill has more the markets, don't like instability, and after sixteen years of president Edwin dominant side of this country, the idea that he has lost Ankara the capital looks like he's lost his bull. The economic powerhouse. Will that obviously produces some instability and some big questions about his continued hold on this country. Clearly, what has happened in this election is that he has been punished by his usually loyal conservative pious support base calling me entered recession last year inflation is at twenty percents. The lira has plunged by about a third in value of the last year. The whole Turkey is now in would suggest that it needs a sudden injection of foreign capital. And some are saying is the most likely address for that. So we might see major economic changes in the months ahead question is whether that's enough to win back his support base. The BBC's Mark Lowen Istanbul. Hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland in the midwest are still underwater, it's been devastating for some farming communities, and you can see it in silos that have burst is the grain inside absorbs floodwater. Economists are watching and waiting to see how the impact of the floods might spread through the broader economy as well. Marketplace's Kimberly Adams reports normally this time of year farmers would be gearing up for planting season. So in this case, it's a lot of grains, and feed, grains, which are used for beef and dairy and even in the poultry industry. Tom bailey. Rabbo Bank follows the dairy industry. He says the floods are forcing farmers to wait before planting. So then you start to see feed prices rise and you see costs for beef producer dairy producer increase. Bailey. Says it's still too early to determine whether those increases will translate into price hikes at the grocery store, but he doubts. They will Mark Welsh is an economist at Texas, A and M. He's also keeping an eye on the corner. When used to make ethanol for your gas tank. And so either of those markets, you know, it's a it's a long time before the impact of that would trickle back to a consumer. He says if there ends up being a real shortage as a result of the floods imports could fill the gap. But that would also likely drive up prices in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for marketplace. Europe's manufacturer's purchasing managers index is a measure of manufacturing strengths, and it is out. And it was the lowest in six years signal signaled a contraction in the manufacturing sector there on top of that core. Inflation in Europe fell in March two point eight percent drifting further away from where the European Central Bank, and many investors would like it to be. This is a double dose of bad news for the European economy. One kind of bright spot Britain with its purchase purchasing managers index is the highest it's been in a year. Why not because British manufacturing is thriving is because it's hoarding stockpiling materials in case of a deal Brexit. Let's do the numbers.
