On Thursday, European leaders will try, during a summit to be held in virtual space starting from 14:00 GMT, to come up with a common strategy regarding the threat posed by the mutated versions of the Corona virus, despite the restrictions imposed on movement in an uncoordinated manner and the big differences about the "vaccine passport."
