Herman Goossens, a professor of microbiology and coordinator of an EU group studying how to combat the coronavirus, is our special guest. What would he have done differently if he could turn back the clock? And when can we realistically expect a return to normal? Goossens answers those questions and more in conversation with POLITICO’s senior health reporter Sarah Wheaton and EU editor Andrew Gray.
We also look at coronavirus testing with health reporter Carmen Paun. What are the different types of test and how are authorities deciding who gets them? And POLITICO’s Bjarke Smith-Meyer demystifies “corona bonds” and explains the other options at the EU’s disposal to manage the economic fallout from the crisis.
