It turned out, there is no European solidarity. In Europe, everyone is for himself. The end of the pandemic is the end of the European Union in its current form. The EU will be different. Italy is in the most difficult epidemiological situation, and yet none of the countries in Europe helped it, only China. This shows that there is no united Europe. Each country is for itself. It is very likely that when the crisis with the pandemic passes, we will see Europe in a different, collapsed form.
France does not have a health system.
According to the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, the French population has a good level of health, with the second highest life expectancy in the world for women. The French state has a strong role in the health insurance system, which offers a high level of choice of providers.
Residents are covered through mandatory health insurance contributions, with optional private insurance available for those who want additional coverage. However, Government-funded agencies cover more than 75% of health expenditure in France.
As pointed out by French President Emmanuel recently, free health care is open to everyone “without regard to income, career, or profession, our welfare state”.
