Coronavirus outbreak: impact on health

In the rapidly evolving pandemic, the whole world was caught by surprise by the force and the rapidity of spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (Covid - 19). That could lead to the situation that even basic personal protective equipment, essential for medical staff and civil protection workers, ran out of stock. The EU therefore decided to create a first-ever common European reserve of medical equipment, and help out Member States facing shortages.

The EU released 48.5 mn euros emergency research funding to advance the knowledge for the clinical and public health response to the new corona virus epidemic. Further 90 mn euros in public and private funds will be made available for therapeutics and diagnostics via the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI).
