Europe is on the verge of a new split. European values are turning into ashes scattered through the empty streets of Italian cities. EU flags are burned in Italian courtyards and defiantly removed from the offices of deputies of the Italian parliament.

At the same time, some French patients with coronavirus are to be sent to the Czech Republic, since the country suffers itself from the pandemic and the Czech Republic has the possibility to accept patients
