BRUSSELS - European Union leaders are considering a video conference on the COVID-19 situation at the end of this week or next week, a senior official said on Monday, as Europe becomes the global centre of the latest wave of coronavirus infections.

The official, who declined to be named, said a decision could come in the coming hours or on Tuesday. EU leaders would seek a common approach on various issues, including the question of booster vaccine doses, the official said.
