As Europe slowly emerges from lockdown it’s becoming clear the pandemic has left a legacy that will mean long-term changes to business, the world of work and the global environment. But despite the devastating toll COVID-19 has taken, might it also have handed us the opportunity to build a fairer, more sustainable future, based on innovation, cooperation and technological progress?
In the second of CGTN's new podcast series Notes on a Pandemic we look at how businesses large and small, and individuals from an array of backgrounds have come together to create a collective response to the pandemic.
CGTN Europe speaks to the hospital architects tasked with the challenge of creating an extra 22,000 acute care beds in the UK in a matter of weeks. For the Nightingale Hospital project, professionals from the building industry worked alongside healthcare staff and the military to pull off the mammoth task.
Elsewhere, we hear from a 3D printing firm in Czechia that designed a face-shield template that went viral around the world after being published on the internet.
Notes on a Pandemic is written and presented by Louise Greenwood.
The production assistant is Katherine Berjikian.
