The President of the European Central Bank Christine Lagarde said Thursday that the economy of the euro area is clearly recovering, but that the spread of the Delta variant of Covid-19 could delay a total reopening of the economy.

“While rising immunity to the coronavirus means that the impact of the pandemic is now less severe, the global spread of the Delta variant could yet delay the full reopening of the economy,” Lagarde said in a press conference. EFE
