The many questions raised by the novel coronavirus pandemic go far beyond medical issues. Everything that was self-evident recently became impossible after the global spread of the virus. Despite the declarative EU emphasis of solidarity, the novel coronavirus pandemic clearly demonstrated the limits of solidarity and opened doors to nationalism. This crisis reveals all the anomalies of globalisation and the capitalist system in its currently dominant version of neoliberalism. The present crisis is indeed posing a serious challenge to the existing state system and capitalist economy. Evidence in support of this argument may be found in the surprising generosity of governments in many countries. Former enthusiastic advocates of austerity measures have come to realise that the legitimacy of the system is being tested at this time.
