"Things have changed a lot during this pandemic. How we perceive the world has also changed a lot. People have distanced a little. But our goal during this pandemic is to support our patients. NATO assists civilian and military personnel during the pandemic.
In fact, the Alliance helps in many different ways, logistically with medical experts, with the construction of field hospitals, delivery of medical supplies, additional PCR tests, if necessary.
Good outcomes can be achieved only with joint efforts.”
