    Can airlines survive the coronavirus crisis? I Inside Story

    Can airlines survive the coronavirus crisis? I Inside Story

    World leaders are being forced to take drastic, emergency measures to confont the worsening Coronavirus crisis.
    They're meant to keep people alive, but are killing the global economy. And few industries have been hit as hard as airlines.
    The International Air Transport Association says the industry stands to lose more than $250 billion dollars in revenue this year, and that's assuming things recover in three months.
    Singapore, Emirates and Turkish Airlines are just a few of the big names to halt almost all their operations.
    An estimated 8,500 aircraft are sitting in storage around the world.
    Governments are promising bailouts to keep the industry afloat.
    But will that be enough?

    Presenter: Peter Dobbie

    Guests
    Alex Macheras, editor of AviationAnalyst.co.uk
    Anil Padhra, head of aviation at the university of West London
    Brendan Sobie, founder of Sobie Aviation and former chief analyst at the Centre for Aviation

    Who's leading the global fight against the coronavirus? I Inside Story

    It's being called a war against an invisible enemy, and it's now being fought on a global scale.
    The world is in a race to stem the increasing number of Coronavirus cases.
    As many as 60,000 new infections are being reported every day, and governments and healthcare systems are struggling to keep up.
    Even among the richest nations, the spread is spiralling out of control.
    Restrictions on people's movement and mandatory quarantines are in place around much of the world, measures that many experts say have come too late.
    As the number of sick and dying rises, governments are scrambling to get the resources needed for the fight and to rescue free-falling economies.
    But can countries deal with the threat of the coronavirus alone?

    Presenter: Peter Dobbie

    Guests
    Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister of Sweden and the Co-Chair of the European Council on Foreign Relations.
    Sarah Eltantawi, Professor of Modern Islam at Fordham University.
    Melinda Liu, Beijing Bureau Chief at Newseek Magazine.

    Could the coronavirus pandemic provide an opportunity for relief in Yemen? | Inside Story

    Could the coronavirus pandemic provide an opportunity for relief in Yemen? | Inside Story

    Much of the world's focus is on the growing coronavirus pandemic.
    And as the war on the disease is stepped up, the United Nations is calling for a ceasefire in other wars - such as in Syria and Yemen - saying people should be fighting the outbreak, not each other.
    The warring sides in Yemen are cautiously backing the UN's appeal.
    Five years of conflict have killed at least 100,000 people and created the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
    What are the prospects of ending the conflict?

    Presenter: Bernard Smith

    Guests:
    Hussain Al-Bukhaiti - Journalist and commentator on Houthi affairs
    Afrah Nasser - Researcher on Yemen for Human Rights Watch
    Elisabeth Kendall - Senior research fellow in Arabic and Islamic studies at Pembroke College, University of Oxford

    Can developing nations handle the COVID-19 pandemic?

    Coronavirus infections have now been reported in nearly every country in the world.
    And the number of people getting sick in Europe and the United States is rising rapidly.
    However, scientists warn the next big spike could occur in developing regions with already weak health systems.
    The United Nations is asking for two billion dollars to help poorer nations.
    Millions of people around the world do not have access to basic washing facilities, sanitation and hygiene.
    Some nations' health systems lack medical supplies, or are under strain after natural disasters and other outbreaks.
    So, how can we avoid a catastrophe?

    How to overcome obstacles to widespread coronavirus testing?

    How to overcome obstacles to widespread coronavirus testing?

    Isolate, test and trace.
    That's the urgent message from the World Health organization to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
    Many countries have imposed mass lockdowns, and ordered people to stay home.
    However, few - such as South Korea and Singapore - have implemented widespread testing.
    Many European countries and the U.S. are limiting tests for only the most critical of cases, as testing kits are in short supply.
    So how can we overcome challeges to widespread testing?


    Presenter: Bernard Smith


    Guests:

    Arisina Ma - President of the Hong Kong Public Doctors' Association.

    Yik Ying Teo - Dean at the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health at the National University of Singapore.

    Ingrid Katz - Assistant Faculty Director of the Global Health Institute at Harvard University.
