Description

Is the EU rising to the challenge of COVID-19? Can people expect the EU to help them weather the storm this time, or will they feel let down as they did with the other two major crises of this century?  As the outbreak sweeps across Europe taking a huge human toll and sowing massive economic havoc, EESC President Luca Jahier looks at the EU’s response so far, pointing to bold actions that only yesterday would have been taboo. But there is an extra mile to go, he says, charting a course that he could help European leaders find a meeting ground.
