ABSTRACT

European Union and the Coronavirus   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Europeans have lost the habit of dealing with deadly epidemics. Until the 18th century, the continent had three epidemics per century. Even if, with regard to emerging infections, 90% of the bacteria and viruses identified were not known thirty years ago (Ebola, SARS [severe acute respiratory disease], H5N1, etc.), the omnipotence of medicine reassured us. The coronavirus has shown the fragility of our societies. We will have to wait a few months to draw conclusions about this health crisis with so many forgotten precedents."
