Czech Republic And Slovakia Are Set To Declare COVID-19 State Of Emergency

To prevent the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Czech Republic and Slovakia will reportedly declare a state of emergency this week after the number of cases increased sharply.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis expects that a state of emergency will be agreed after a meeting to be held on Wednesday.

The Czech Republic has recently reported an increase in COVID-19 cases making a total of 65,313 confirmed cases and 615 deaths.

According to the Jakarta Post, Babis decisions were also voiced by Slovakia Prime Minister, Igor Matovic who said the “extremely serious” situation called for “very bold decisions” following a meeting of his country’s crisis management team.

If implemented, Slovakia will face a state of emergency for the second time to curb the spread of COVID-19. Under the proposed ban, all sporting, cultural and religious events will be banned from October 1.

Weddings and funerals will only be allowed if all participants can prove that they have undergone a negative test for COVID-19.

Restaurants, bars, and cafes will also be closed by 10:00 pm and if people who do not live in the same house approach two meters (six feet) outside the house, they should wear face masks.

Wearing a face mask is also mandatory when in public indoor spaces in Slovakia.
