    The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control is an agency with a mandate to strengthen Europe’s defences against infectious diseases. But there are many who question its purpose. Critics say the agency has not been effective in dealing with this crisis. And without any executive powers, its recommendations are not legally binding.
