The European Union (EU) administration stated that they are ready to provide all kinds of support, including vaccines, to China, where Covid-19 cases have increased. Tim McPhie, one of the spokespersons of the EU Commission, stated that Stella Kyriakides, Member of the EU Commission for Health, gave a message of support by meeting with his Chinese counterparts.
Noting that there are also vaccines developed against Covid-19 within the scope of the support, McPhie stated that the EU can also convey its experience during the epidemic period. EU officials refrain from giving details on possible vaccine support. The EU administration still has not taken a common stance on measures such as testing compulsory for passengers coming from China to European countries.
According to EU officials, a delegation of health experts from their countries will meet today to evaluate the situation. A larger meeting will be held tomorrow. EU spokesperson McPhie stated that tomorrow’s meeting will be “crisis management”, not only possible measures for passengers from China, but also an evaluation of the latest situation against the Covid-19 epidemic in general.
