Michel Calls Second Wave of Pandemic “Brutal”, Calls for Emergency Summit Meeting

BRUSSELS — European Council President Charles Michel has called an emergency summit telemeeting for next week on the coronavirus, according to EU sources.

Michel and the leaders of 27 member states will discuss how to deal with Covid-19, with the pandemic's development getting worse the last three months.

In comments from his Council address on Wednesday, posted on Twitter, Michel said, "We're all in the same boat when it comes to Covid-19. We need to intensify our concrete cooperation on testing & tracing and vaccines. Testing & tracing is key as we wait for a vaccine."

"We're facing a second wave, and it's brutal," he underlined.



ATHENS - The re-election of Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, continuing his 20-year run in power – perhaps for life – came as Greece was in transition, with a caretaker government ahead of a second round of elections June 25.
