Helsingin Sanomat has published an interview with High Representative Borrell, which he gave to five European newspapers. Mr Borrell discussed the challenges presented to the European Union by the coronavirus. Member States closed their borders and refused to assist Italy, which was badly affected by the virus. The situation became tense, with President von der Leyen having to apologize to Italy. Mr Borrell thinks the situation now looks better. People realise that being a member of the EU means having better protection. Mr Borrell declined to comment on President Trump's claim that the coronavirus originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.
