BRUSSELS, Oct 2 (Reuters) - The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe was again worrying and it remained necessary to remain focused on tackling it.
“The epidemiological situation is worrying. So we must stay very focused to avoid a return to the dire situation we experienced last spring,” von der Leyen told a news conference after a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels. She said the EU was making progress in acquiring potential vaccines against the new virus. “Progress on vaccines is the key to a long-term solution to this crisis,” she said.
