Seafarers Crisis: Shipping Workers Trapped, What Needs To Be Done?

A disaster is at hand in the seas as the fate of seafarers who play a crucial role in keeping global trade flowing is being labelled a "humanitarian crisis at sea," as hundreds of thousands of crew are spending extended periods at sea, far beyond the expiry of their contracts.

The Morning Run speaks to Guy Platten, Secretary General of the International Chamber of Shipping, to get a better understanding of the situation, the challenges going forward, and whether the shipping industry overall is a hotbed for COVID-19 clusters and transmission.
