Why can't the world unite to defeat coronavirus? Save the Children talk about their work battling Covid-19 across borders

Coronavirus has never been so prevalent. Although cases are dropping in Europe, they're soaring in both north and South America, while Africa is struggling to control the infection. Data suggests the peak of the global pandemic is still to come. Among those battling Covid-19 across borders is Save the Children. Their executive director of global programmes Gwen Hines tells us about the challenges being faced in places like Yemen, where a civil war is hampering efforts to keep people safe. 


Prince Philip's turned 99 with a celebration at Windsor Castle with the Queen. A new photograph of the couple has been released to mark the occasion.
