EARA rebuts MEPs on Covid-19

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

EARA has written a rebuttal in response to a letter sent by a number of MEPs to two European Commissioners, and the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The MEPs called for a shift away from the use of animal models in Covid-19 research. In its rebuttal, sent to the Commissioners and the EMA, EARA stressed the importance of animal models in Covid-19 research and questioned some of the statements made by the MEPs.

Both the Commission and the EMA replies to the MEPs outlined that they were tackling Covid-19 with scientific and regulatory work that included the use of animals.
