Amid COVID-19 pandemic special measures in place in various countries across the world, the EU Commission has come up with a suggestion for a gradual and well-controlled return to normalcy.
The EU Commission has drafted a strategy in this regard. The draft is to be presented by the President of the EU Commission, Von der Leyen, after the Easter holidays.
The EU Commission has advised all member states to review the restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. Some of the restrictions in place are to be abolished if found to be no longer necessary.
The draft for the gradual return to normalcy amid COVID-19 will be published soon. As suggested by the draft, each of the EU member states must fulfil two conditions – a sufficient number of intensive beds and hospitals along with a significant slowing down in the spread of the virus.
Moreover, the countries that have a willingness to facilitate the measures must have enough tests for the monitoring and containment of the coronavirus infection.
Germany might gradually return to normalcy after the Easter holidays. According to the Health Minister of Germany, Jens Spahn, Germany might plan to “gradually return to normalcy” after Easter.
In a press conference held in Berlin, Spahn has said that while the restrictive measures imposed can be seen to be taking effect, the Easter holidays will be the determining factor for deciding whether Germany is indeed able to gradually begin lifting the anti-coronavirus measures after the Easter holidays are over.
While Denmark also plans on a return to normalcy after Easter, Austria is also taking measures for returning to normal.
If the situation so demands, COVID-19 special measures might be re-imposed by the respective government of the member state.
Even with a plan drafted for a gradual return to normalcy, the EU Commission has invited the Europeans states in the Schengen Area as well as associated states to consider an extension of the external border closure for all non-essential travel to the EU till May 15.
