China has reported its largest number of new Covid‑19 cases in almost six weeks. This was caused by an increased number of infected travellers returning from abroad. On 12 April, some 108 new Covid‑19 cases were announced, while the previous day 99 new Covid‑19 cases were recorded. On Monday, China’s National Health Commission announced that 98 of the cases of infection involved people travelling to China. These numbers show that even in a country where the spread of Covid‑19 had been halted, the epidemic can take root once again and result in a second wave.
What measures will the Commission take to ensure that the lifting of lockdowns does not lead to a second wave of the virus throughout the EU?
Has an action plan been prepared on how to protect citizens from the re‑introduction of the virus into the EU?
