European Commission President Wears Protective Gloves for Virtual Parliament Session

Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, wore protective gloves during a virtual session of the European Parliament on Thursday, March 26.

She told an almost empty parliament that Europe was in a ‘’fight for its life" amid the crisis. "It’s only be helping each other that we can help ourselves," she said.
