March 26, 2020

The European Parliament voted overwhelmingly on Thursday for new measures to help with the COVID-19 crisis.

MEPs gave the green light to three initiatives which include the Coronavirus Response Initiative which will make thirty seven billion euro (€37bn) available to EU countries to address the consequences of the crisis.

It was the first time MEPs voted remotely with hundreds of them sending in their votes online.
