The EU Has Failed Europe Over Coronavirus – NATION AND STATE

https://nationandstate.com/2020/04/17/the-eu-has-failed-europe-over-coronavirus/

Not only has the Brussels bureaucracy been unable to provide vital medical assistance to stricken countries in the form of badly-needed protective clothing and key equipment, such as ventilators. The EU has also completely failed in its efforts to provide financial support for those countries, such as Italy and Spain, that have been worst affected by the crisis.

The EU’s inability or unwillingness to respond should raise fresh questions about the EU’s long-term future.

Furthermore, a meeting of EU finance ministers held to discuss setting up a $380 billion coronavirus rescue package failed to reach agreement when wealthier northern European states refused to back measures to help their less wealthy southern partners unless they agreed to punitive loan terms.
