NATO is preparing for a revival of the second wave of corona pandemic.
Defence ministers from the 30 member states agree this week on an operational plan to better and faster assist each other and partner countries in a new health crisis.
For example, a stock of medical goods is created.
A special fund is being set up for this purpose so that medical supplies and equipment can be quickly purchased and distributed among allies and NATO partners on request.
The military alliance has recently played a key role in addressing the corona crisis, according to Stoltenberg, by providing medical supplies and equipment, including nearly 100 field hospitals.
In a second wave, the response should be more powerful and coordination better, Stoltenberg said.
Aid must be delivered in the right place at the right time, according to the Norwegian.
