European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen states that the European Union will procure over $15 billion to help combat the mortal coronavirus.
“It’s in our interest to make sure that the battle is successful globally,” von der Leyen stated on Twitter.
“By standing united and working together, we could defeat this virus”
With the majority of the European Union under lockdown as death tolls rise in Italy, Spain, France, and the UK, Europe has been the epicenter of the worldwide outbreak with just under 50,000 deaths.
Speaking a week, von der Leyen introduced a $100 billion program to stop companies laying off workers over the European bloc to stop a catastrophic downturn and”keep occupations and companies running.”
