Special arrangements in the EP for the Plenary session on the COVID-19: ambiance shots
Event date: 26/03/2020
The European Parliament holds an extraordinary plenary session in Brussels to debate and vote on the first three proposals from the European Commission to tackle the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in EU member states. These proposals concern the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative, legislation extending the scope of the EU Solidarity Fund to cover public health emergencies and a new law stopping the so-called ghost flights caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Measures have been adopted for this session to ensure that votes can be organised remotely.
