A Global Dataset of COVID-19 Restrictions on Human Movement — video abstract

A video abstract on the article introducing the Citizenship, Migration and Mobility in a Pandemic (CMMP) dataset. Initiated and led by Lorenzo Piccoli this is a project that systematically collected restrictions to human movement as well as the exemptions in place during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in most places.
