Earth Day 2020: Greta Thunberg says we must tackle coronavirus and climate crises together

People need to tackle both the coronavirus pandemic and the climate crisis together, Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg said on Wednesday during an event marking the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Taking part in a live-streamed event to mark Earth Day, launched to highlight environmental challenges, Thunberg said the outbreak of the coronavirus meant it was more important than ever to listen to scientists and other experts. Thunberg said in March she had probably had been infected with the coronavirus after travelling to affected countries, though her symptoms were mild and she had not been tested.
