EU member states disagree on a collective coronavirus exit plan. Instead countries choose to exit their own way.

🇬🇧 /// BREAKING BRITANNIA NEWS /// 🇬🇧

European Commission President Ursula Von der Leyen, led talks in an attempt to unite the bloc behind her proposal to help mitigate against the effects of the coronavirus as they come out of lockdown. Von der Leyen’s efforts fail as member states rejected to get behind a single proposal.

Brussels officials were hoping to lead a “Roadmap” for member states to follow; however, several EU countries over the last few days have decided to go their way with their exit strategy.

 Austria, the Czech Republic and Denmark have declared the end of their restrictions at the end of this month. But with Italy, Spain and France not yet being over the peak of the virus outbreak, they will maintain and continue with stringent measures to curb the spread.

 

Eric Mamet who is the EU’s commission chief spokesman stated Earlier on Wednesday that officials would place their “focus on the roadmap to exit” hoping the proposal would’ve been adopted, followed by a press conference presented by Ursula.

However, in a downturn of events, Mr Mamer was reported by Politico saying the release of the exit plans were being postponed till after Easter.

Express reported one senior diplomat saying: The lack of a united plan in Europe has caused several officials to hit out at EU leaders who are considering lifting restrictions.

One Commission official said: “If anything these restrictive measures have only begun to show proper results.

“We criticised them for not being able to consult this with member states in an appropriate way.”

One Commission official said: “If anything these restrictive measures have only begun to show proper results.

“It is of the essence now that member states persist a few weeks more and then gradually start to relax them.

“Exit steps need to be smart and coordinated as much as possible throughout Europe.”
