The Europe coronavirus situation became a turning point yesterday when the Spanish government decided to go public about the coronavirus situation unfolding at a hotel resort in Tenerife despite objections by the EU and ECDC.


 
It has come to light that Spain had prior cases of coronavirus infections since the past two weeks but had been pressured by the EU and ECDC not to go public by citing certain technicalities involving classification of cases. It has since come to light that certain other countries in the EU zone have also been under such constraints despite having confirmed coronavirus cases in their country. Some are claiming that after the Italy crisis erupted, the EU and ECDC were trying hard to suppress public information about the spread and magnitude of the coronavirus situation in Europe to prevent an economic fallout. It is despicable that considering the fact that while most of the world was criticizing China for already doing such cover up acts, that the EU and ECDC of all entities, would themselves be indulging in such unethical acts. It would also be interesting to know if WHO knew about this as some of its staff are also in the ECDC.
 
After, Spain declared cases of coronavirus yesterday, other countries are now doing so in Europe. There are now confirmed coronavirus cases in Austria, Switzerland, Greece and Croatia joining previous countries with reported cases such as France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Finland and Italy.
