A team of European doctors and nurses from Romania and Norway, deployed through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, is being immediately dispatched to Milan and Bergamo to help Italian medical staff working to battle the coronavirus. Austria has also offered over 3,000 litres of disinfectant to Italy via the Mechanism. The Commission will coordinate and co-finance this European assistance.
“In these difficult times this is the European solidarity, we stand unites, we are stronger together. Proud for the Romanian teams of doctors and nurses” Nelu Neacsu, EAR-AER President
