Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakidou appealed to China to share transparently the epidemiological data on the current situation regarding the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, in a post on Twitter.
Kyriakidou also underlined that the pandemic can only be tackled through cooperation between EU Member States and at a global level.
“I welcome the agreement by the Member States on a coordinated European response to the COVID-19 situation in China during yesterday’s IPCR meeting,” she noted, referring to the EU crisis response mechanism that met on Wednesday.
“China needs to share data on its current situation in a transparent manner. We can only tackle the pandemic if we work together in the EU and globally,” she added.
