Brussels is dead. There is an ongoing battle against idiots. European leaders will give Brussels’ bureaucrats their comeuppance for their failure to act on the coronavirus crisis.
The current crisis will fundamentally change the fate of the EU. The failure of EU bureaucracy to cope with the coronavirus will contribute to further disintegration of the Union and the inevitability of resurgent national sovereignty. The coronavirus pandemic may spell the end of the common European currency.
Baseless speculation made without evidence. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the alleged disintegration of the European Union as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. See similar disinformation cases that the EU's health and safety policies have failed, that the COVID-19 outbreak means the end of Europe, and that many European states will likely cease to exist due to the pandemic.
The European Union is supporting the Member States in addressing the crisis, and mitigating the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. To cushion the blow to people’s livelihoods and the economy, the European Commission has adopted a comprehensive economic response to the outbreak, applied the full flexibility of the EU fiscal rules, has revised its State Aid rules and proposed to set up a EUR 37 billion Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative to provide liquidity to small businesses and the health care sector.
To support scientific research into the COVID-19, the European Commission earmarked 47,5 million EUR for shortlisted research projects that can improve epidemiology and public health, including preparedness and response to outbreaks. The EU has also created first ever stockpile of medical equipment.
