While the COVID-19 pandemic is still raging in many countries across the globe, in Europe it seems the first peak has passed. In Italy, which has been struck extremely hard by the pandemic, the local authorities of the Piedmont region have requested the deployment of B-LiFE, a mobile laboratory, in order to test their frontline responders such as healthcare workers, civil protection volunteers and members of the emergency services. The test will show whether they have the coronavirus, and also whether or not those who have been infected have had an immune response to the virus. B-Life is a project that has been developed within the ESA Space Solutions programme and shows how space technology benefits people on the ground in times of crisis.
