NATO, together with other international organisations, is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and all NATO Allies have taken measures to respond. NATO has been implementing robust measures to limit the spread of the virus; to reduce the risks to our soldiers, civilians, and communities; and to ensure that our essential work continues – to maintain deterrence and defence for our nations. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg addressed media on March 19, saying: „NATO’s ability to conduct operations has not been undermined. Our forces remain ready, and our work goes on.” He added: “This is an unprecedented crisis. But we have overcome crises before. And together, we will overcome the coronavirus crisis.”
