    Carlo Maria Palermo (CESPI) reflects about Healthcare situation within United States, European Union and possibile institutional implications.

    The Covid-19 outbreak is challenging institutions as well within the United States and in the European Union.
    The US risk to face a huge challenge, considering that its Healthcare system is considerably commercial ruled instead of being public and universal, while the European Union (still a confederation in many terms), is not to be able to face commonly to such a huge crisis, not having proper budgetary, fiscal institutes to implement.
