This panel, which was created following a mandate by EU Member States, will be chaired by the Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, and co-chaired by Stella Kyriakides, Commissioner for health and food safety.

President von der Leyen said: "The coronavirus is rapidly changing our lives and our societies. All governments have to take well-informed and appropriate decisions for the people of Europe every day. That is why scientific expertise and good advice is now more valuable than ever. I am very grateful to all the high-profile experts on the panel for putting their knowledge at the service of the community."

Stella Kyriakides, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, said: “Together with our public health professional, clinical practitioners, epidemiologists and virologists are at the forefront of the fight towards the spread of COVID-19.
