The year 2020 has so far been dominated by the novel corona virus Sars-CoV-2, which has spread worldwide in recent months since it first appeared in the Chinese metropolis of Wuhan at the turn of the year. In Europe in particular, the number of infected people is rising rapidly, and many nations have already responded with rigorous measures. Almost all European countries have sealed off their external borders with neighbouring countries to slow down the spread of the virus. Public life has come to an almost complete standstill almost everywhere and social distancing and self-isolation have become a matter of course everywhere.
No matter where you look, the strategy of individual countries, no matter where in the world, in fighting the pandemic is the same everywhere. Bringing public life down to a lunar scale, isolating those identified and above all testing, testing, testing.
