This article aims at illustrating the reaction put in place at supranational level to the outbreak of Coronavirus. In particular, the analysis is focused on the implementation of the relevant European Disaster Law instruments, namely the Union Civil Protection Mechanism and the Decision No 1082/2013/EU on serious cross-border threats to health. Here their functioning and legal implementation are taken into consideration. On the other hand, the article considers the possible interference of the Member States’ reaction to the health emergency with the proper implementation of EU acquis, with particular regard to the Schengen cooperation. The article argues that in both cases EU law, also in the light of the principle of sincere cooperation, has led to the emergence of coordination duties that EU institutions and Member States should enforce in the fight against the virus.

Abstract

This article aims at illustrating the reaction put in place at supranational level to the outbreak of Coronavirus. In particular, the analysis is focused on the implementation of the relevant European Disaster Law instruments, namely the Union Civil Protection Mechanism and the Decision No 1082/2013/EU on serious cross-border threats to health. Here their functioning and legal implementation are taken into consideration. On the other hand, the article considers the possible interference of the Member States’ reaction to the health emergency with the proper implementation of EU acquis, with particular regard to the Schengen cooperation. The article argues that in both cases EU law, also in the light of the principle of sincere cooperation, has led to the emergence of coordination duties that EU institutions and Member States should enforce in the fight against the virus.
