The Parliament is committed to helping EU countries deal with the coronavirus and address the social impact of the outbreak.​​​​​​​

Alleviating the human effects of the crisisis paramount,but repercussions are being felt across many sectors. European Union institutions are unanimous in calling for solidarity among Member States, and for  Europe to offer support,  within  its  remit, to  its  Member  States  in  their response to the common challenge. The EU proposes measures to: support people so that income and jobs are not affected disproportionally and to avoid permanent effects of the crisis, a fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived will continue to provide assistance where it is most needed.
