We confront the traditional role of the EU in the domain of health with the urgent need for collective action triggered by the coronavirus pandemic. In the face of such a crisis, we argue that the joint procurement, stockpiling, and allocation of medical countermeasures is a key component of true European solidarity, besides maintaining the integrity of the single market. We present the first results of a survey experiment taken before the current crisis on citizens' attitudes toward centralizing at the EU level of policies to combat infectious diseases, which indicates considerable support.
