It is today the announcement that the European Space Agency and the Russian Roscosmos Space Corporation have decided to postpone to 2022, between August and October, the launch to Mars of the second ExoMars mission.
Postponement made inevitable, due to the outbreak of corona virus, to complete all the necessary tests to ensure the success of the mission. Maria Cristina De Sanctis (INAF): “Although not happy with a postponement, we believe that it is wise to postpone the launch if this guarantees a mission with essentially zero risk”.

P.S. Afraid to take it to Mars too??? :O
