EU: No reason to panic over coronavirus

The outbreak of the coronavirus in Europe is concerning but no reason for alarm, the European Union says.

“This is a situation of concern but we must not give in to panic,” EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides tells reporters in Rome after meeting Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza.

“We must also be vigilant when it comes to misinformation and disinformation as well as xenophobic statements which are misleading citizens and putting in question the work of public authorities,” she adds.
