Question for written answer E-001828/2020
to the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Rule 138

 Subject: Coronavirus, NATO field hospital in Luxembourg: the EU should support countries like Italy where the emergency is greater

The Italian press has recently been reporting that in order to curb the spread of coronavirus, NATO has prepared a field hospital which is soon to become operational in Luxembourg.

As far as we know, the material left the NATO base in Taranto (i.e. Italy) a few days ago, on six cargo flights, and will have the task of augmenting the hospital’s capabilities ‘with a view to prevention’, in order to tackle a possible coronavirus emergency.

To date, the virus epidemic has infected over 63 000 Italians, and more than 6 000 people have died.

In view of the above, can the High Representative answer the following questions:

1. Does he know whether NATO has any more field hospitals available?

2. Does he not consider it advisable to ask NATO for specific help for the parts of Italy that are the most affected by the spread of the virus, or rather to support the Italian Government should it make such a request?
