Holding answer received on 24 March 2020

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020. As the UK is no longer a Member State, we no longer attend EU Health Ministers’ meetings. However, the UK continues to collaborate with the EU to tackle this outbreak by attending Health Security Committee meetings, sharing information through the Early Warning and Response System (EWRS) and through engaging bilaterally with the European Commission and other European and international partners.
