Countries in Europe are having individualist goals in tackling the COVID-19 virus. This is especially as it relates to easing the lockdown, as well as formulating and implementing policies to help out.
The reason for the different approaches is the variant impact of the pandemic across the European continent.
The Take in Various Part of Europe
Several nations in the European continent are either intensifying restrictions or making plans to gradually come off the lockdown.
As a matter of fact, even the United Kingdom with strong regional administrations is having differences in this regard.
For instance, while Britain is making plans for school resumption, the situation in Scotland is different. This is because of the new experience of COVID-19 cases in the region. As a result, there are more strict measures on public gatherings.
In the same vein, Italy has also intensified lockdown restrictions because of its latest trouble with the new variant. As a result, many lives have been lost of late and the restrictive measures are no doubt in the best interest of the citizens at large.
The Adverse Effects
A good number of countries in the European region are quite skeptical about completely easing the lockdown. This is even though people are craving for the once-upon-a-time social and physical interaction.
The situation is more complicated considering that the restrictive measures have affected bilateral trade between member nations of the European Union. Of late, the union expressed dissatisfaction at 6 member nations that went totally against the resolutions by the organization.
However, some measures taken by these countries’ administrators are in the best interest of their nation. This is opposed to the notion that it is about blatantly disregarding the European Union.
On that note, it is expected that the continental organization will turn a blind eye to the actions of these nations and seek better ways to deal with the COVID-19 situation and other pressing issues.
