COVID-19. Reflections on leadership and global crisis management.- Federico Aznar Fernández-Montesinos.

The death of the General of Health Brigade D. Juan Rey Naya due to COVID-19 gives rise to a reflection on the concept of leadership, or rather the lack of this at a global level. There has been no leadership at this level before the crisis, there has not been during the management of the crisis and therefore it cannot be expected that it will arise afterwards. The great leaders that Europe has given from Churchill to Helmut Kohl seem to be absent. We are facing a model problem since, in practice, problems are not led but managed.
