EU leaders henceforth weekly video conference on the COVID-19 pandemic
Brussels - European Union leaders have agreed to hold video conferences almost every week to co-ordinate national measures against the COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when the continent is battling a rising infection.
The 27 EU nations fought COVID-19 with various, sometimes opposite, measures in the first months of the pandemic. Closer coordination is expected to avoid a repetition of the first divisions after the initial outbursts.
There was an agreement that we, almost every week now, engage in consultation with each other to find the best methods and the best approaches to deal with this second wave of COVID-19 për spread, he said Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin on Friday at an EU summit.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said regular video conferencing would help coordinate movements for tracking, restrictive measures, vaccines and therapies.
