We tell you how governments around the world are using backtracking strategies: tracing every suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19 to understand how the virus is spreading and get insight into how to halt it.

We also speak to Rachel Tobac, a cybersecurity consultant and an expert in the field of social engineering, about the increase in cyberattacks on companies and NGOs but also on regular citizens. 

Last but not least, as many of you watching are perhaps on lockdown and sometimes with kids, we show you how to impress them with an at-home science experiment of Newton's third law of motion. It's the same principle that sends rockets to the moon!
