COVID19: Official guidelines on social distancing and testing from ECDC and Commission

Europe lives in an unprecedented state of pandemics. The COVID19 is triggering strict measures from governments attempting to limit social contact and thus preventing contagion. Flattening the curve is the goal to achieve in order to avert already fragile healthcare systems from collapsing. For that purpose, the number of reported cases must be smaller than the actual number of infections. The European Centre for Disease and Control (ECDC) and the European Commission COVID19 Advisory Panel put together essential guidelines for healthcare professionals and civil society to deal with this crisis.
