Tackling COVID-19: A fourth video meeting for EU Leaders

In a fourth video meeting for EU leaders since the outbreak of COVID-19 held yesterday, April 23, the different facets of the European response to COVID-19 were discussed.

EU leaders welcomed the European roadmap towards lifting COVID-19 containment measures, presented by President Michel and von der Leyen a few weeks ago.

Leaders agreed that the situation must be followed closely and that coordination to ensure a gradual and orderly return to normality is imperative.

Heads of state or government endorsed the agreement of the Eurogroup on three safety nets for workers, businesses and sovereigns, amounting to a package worth €540 billion. They called for the package to be operational by 1 June 2020.
