Our reports:

- In Germany, we see how one company is working flat out to test people for Covid-19.

- In Russia, however, some tests are providing false negatives and showing the wrong results.

- In Afghanistan, after decades of conflict, the healthcare system in the capital Kabul is being hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak.

- In the US state of North Carolina, where 17 percent of the workforce has filed for unemployment benefits, protests have sprung up demanding that businesses re-open.

- And in Gabon's capital Libreville, the pandemic highlights unequal access to clean water, which is so important for hand-washing.
