EU conference on coordinated COVID-19 approach
On Thursday 29 October, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will take part in a video conference with other EU heads of state and government. The leaders will discuss how EU Member States can better coordinate their response in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The heads of state and government will discuss what can be done at EU level to reduce the current spread of COVID-19 in EU Member States. They will share experiences of how to effectively conduct COVID-19 testing and contact tracing to reduce the spread of infection and discuss the possibility of coordinating quarantine rules.
They will also discuss the work of producing and then distributing a vaccine, and how its allocation should proceed.
This is the EU leaders first video conference since the summer. Three video conferences were held during the spring.
