The EU heads of state and authorities had met on January 21 to debate the coordination on the bloc’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to testing practices, vaccination programmes and the emergence of the brand new Coronavirus variants.
The EUCO announcement comes at a reasonably difficult second for the bloc, which is going through extreme delays in vaccine deliveries by producers Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
