Fine Gael MEP Maria Walsh says we need to reach out to older people who aren’t tech savvy during the corona-crisis.

She was speaking as a special session of the European Parliament got underway to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Some of the measures being discussed include a 37-billion-euro investment initiative and changes to the EU Solidarity Fund to cover public health emergencies
