Von der Leyen: EU leaders to discuss virus situation

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen confirmed on Thursday she would be discussing the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic with the leaders of the European Union's members later in the day.

"People are worried & tired, legitimately. But we need patience, discipline, and solidarity, to slow down the spread of this virus. The EU is working hard on all aspects of the crisis," she tweeted.

Von der Leyen previously expressed her concern the number of infections from COVID-19 in Europe would increase in the forthcoming period, adding the public should "not let down our guard now."
