Towards a Stronger EU Health Governance: Threats in the Wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic
COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2, emerged in late 2019 in a Wuhan market in China and spread rapidly around the world, including Europe and the US, reaching pandemic proportions. In Europe, despite the initial surprise, the European Union (EU) as an important supranational actor managed, in a relatively short period of time, to react by activating its institutions and trying to cope with the new grim reality. The present study aims to analyse the policies followed at EU level in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to highlight the consequences in terms of prevention and protection and the need for European coordination in order to effectively deal with similar future crises.
