"It is of utmost importance that emergency measures are not at the expense of our fundamental principles and values", European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement. "Democracy can not work without free and independent media".

But the European Union leader stopped short of agreeing to Rome's request for the bloc to start issuing joint debt - dubbed "coronabonds" - that could let countries such as Italy address the crisis more cheaply.

"Today Europe is mobilising alongside Italy".

Von der Leyen said that SURE was guaranteed by all member states and that it was "European solidarity in action".

"We know in this crisis that we need quick answers". Von der Leyen added: "you have to help our farmers, and you want to earn the bread for their families at home - of course, under safe working conditions".

Eddie Jones extends England contract
I never thought coming here four years ago I would be doing a second four years but the circumstances are right. England had a disappointing World Cup in 1999, losing limply to South Africa in Paris.

Nine countries, including France, Italy and Spain, pushed for the establishment of joint debt instruments dubbed "corona bonds" but this met with opposition from Germany and the Netherlands.

Von der Leyen concluded by proposing that "every euro still available in the EU's annual budget be spent on tackling the crisis".

"In the past month, the European Commission has left no stone unturned to help Italy", she wrote. The law not only gives him absolute power but the so called "emergency measures" have no end date and impose chilling penalties on speech, journalists and anyone found violating quarantine.

An internal paper shared before Thursday's announcement suggested that the SURE fund would require a system of financial guarantees by European Union member states.
