NATO begins preparations for an operation to respond to the second wave of Covid-19 coronavirus that is expected this fall. The respective decision was made by the Alliance ambassadors last week, as they convened for a secret conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

Spiegel wrote that, quoting the official.

"A most coordinated response to the second wave of coronavirus is a litmus paper for trust and unity in the Alliance," Stoltenberg said.

The operation plan is supposed to be developed under the supervision of Ted Walters, the US Air Force General, and the NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. It foresees improved personal protection for the Alliance staff, as well as more effective assistance for NATO partner countries. The Alliance is also supposed to develop the long-term Action Plan to respond to the pandemic.
