UK climate activists stranded in historic town in Kosovo

PRIZREN, Kosovo (AP) — British climate activists Rosie Watson and Mike Elm were on an international bicycle and running tour to promote their green campaign when they got stuck in Kosovo because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since mid-March, Kosovo has been in a lockdown with all its land and air border crossings shut. The virus has killed at least 22 people in Kosovo and there are more than 790 confirmed cases. The couple is enjoying the historic, cobblestone town of Prizren, which is along the Bistrica River and the Sharri Mountains and was founded in the second century A.D. They have been writing about their trip and say the coronavirus pandemic shows that countries can adapt quickly to major threats like climate change.
