As the Covid-19 has halted our daily lives and forced many countries and region into lockdown the economic effects have been devastating. With countries closing their borders traffic jams developed and supply chains were disrupted. For European agriculture closed borders are a major problem as they are heavily reliant on migrant labour for their harvest.

It includes an interview with Josef Aschbacher, Director of Earth Observation Programmes, ESA.
