“Despite a slight decline in recent cases the situation is still complicated,“Said the Minister of the Interior Jan Hamáček (CSSD) after the meeting of the Central Crisis Staff. “The situation is complicated throughout the country, but the most difficult is in the Moravian-Silesian region, “ he pointed out. Thus, people cannot expect mitigation measures.
According to Hamáček, the Czech Republic will have enough needles and syringes for vaccination for at least two months. Some hospitals complained that the state supplied vaccines without additional material, so they had to take from their own supplies. “The first deliveries are to come at the beginning of February, they are both syringes and dilution solution,”Hamáček said about the orders placed by the resort. According to him, there are large disparities in the number of materials between individual regions and hospitals. According to Hamáček, stocks of syringes are low in the Olomouc, Moravian-Silesian and Pilsen regions. Loans from teaching hospitals will solve this. But according to him, the Czechia as a whole has no problem. “I consider this matter resolved.”
K inoculumHamáček did not want to express himself in this strategy, according to him it is a living document, currently under discussion. Regions in the Czech Republic have started testing the central registration system for vaccination against covid-19, which is to open on Friday at the earliest for people over the age of 80. However, some governors have reservations about its functioning. Following the adjustments that resulted from the discussion with the regions and other actors in the planned vaccination, the government will discuss the vaccination methodology today, as prepared by the Ministry of Health.
According to Chief Jan Hamáček (ČSSD), the Central Crisis Staff dealt with rewards for students who help in hospitals. This money will be exempt from levies, the minister stressed. He apologized for the confusion.
The census may shift
A pandemic could postpone the planned census in the Czech Republic. Hamáček wants to discuss risks with the Ministry of Health after negotiations with the statistics. The census is scheduled for spring.
Hamáček stated that the census this year counts on the online phase, which should start on 27 March and end on 9 April, but a field census is planned for April and May, which is to be attended by 11,000 commissioners. “We’re at the beginning, we’re looking to see if it’s a risk.” Hamáček said. He added that the decision will be up to the experts. It envisages a conference between representatives of the Czech Post, whose employees are to take part in the census, and the Ministry of Health.
The goal of the census is to gett Accurate and up-to-date data that serves to more effectively plan for many aspects of public life, including education, health and social care or integrated rescue system. This year, it is to take place through a website, a mobile application and the traditional method of census commissioners. In addition, it should be possible to fill in the form at 800 selected post offices or send it to the Office by post. The results should be known at the turn of 2021 and 2022.
According to the CZSO’s estimate from last August, up to 60 percent of people could use the option to fill out a form via the Internet during the census. At the last census in 2011, only about a quarter of people used this option. The post office is to be in charge of printing, distribution and processing of paper forms. The project budget is 2.1 billion crowns. The last census amounted to 2.27 billion crowns.
