Politicians have underestimated the danger of the coronavirus epidemic. This is what EC President Ursula von der Leyen said.
"'We underestimated coronavirus," EU admits: Ursula von der Leyen said that "all of us who are not experts initially underestimated the coronavirus".
The President of the EC believes that the Heads of Government have realized that they need to take those measures that only seemed drastic to them 2-3 weeks ago.
According to von der Layen, Europe is currently at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis. Italy and Spain are two of the countries that are most affected.
Ursula von der Leyen said 'measures which seemed drastic two or three weeks ago need to be taken now' as much of the continent goes into lockdown.
