Corona and the Climate Crisis - What can we learn from the pandemic?

The Corona pandemic has led to dramatic changes in our daily life and it clearly has had an effect on the global economy. The shutdown of whole cities and industries has led to a decrease in CO2 emissions. What does that mean for our climate? And the other way around: How does the climate crisis affect the occurrence of pandemics such as COVID-19? Must policies aiming at pandemic prevention also target the climate crisis?
