From GERMANY- The Covid pandemic has transformed the streets of Brussels into a more climate friendly place with more space for pedestrians and bicycles. Protests against governmental restrictions in response to the pandemic are growing in Germany, with the far-right and conspiracy theorists trying to hijack the demonstrations. Russia now has the second largest number of Covid infections, and Santiago Chile has gone into total lockdown. US Secretary of State Pompeo spent a day in Israel, where Netanyahu and Gantz have formed a Unity government- they discussed the pandemic and the annexation of parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Fierce clashes are continuing in Yemen, backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi interviewed Frank-Jurgen Richter, former director of the World Economic Forum.
