Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Jan Hamáček (CSSD) told ČT today that if the governors asked for a new declaration of a state of emergency due to the coronavirus epidemic, the government would probably comply. On Thursday, the Chamber of Deputies refused to extend the current state of emergency, which ends on Sunday.
Vondrak said that vaccinations and other things are running, so the region basically has nothing to deal with at the moment. “We cannot decide on the conclusion of shops and services, it is not in the competence of the region or in a state of danger. As long as things work, there is no requirement to declare a state of danger, because from the point of view of the law the state of danger does not meet the conditions, it is only a local danger, “said the governor.
Anti-epidemic measures would have to be announced by the regional hygiene station. “This is exactly the same situation as it was at the time when there was a problem with OKD,” Vondrák reminded of the situation from last year, when OKD’s mines in the Karviná region had the largest outbreak of coronavirus in the Czech Republic. According to the governor, the region had problems enforcing area testing there, for example.
If the state of emergency did not apply, according to Hamáček, for example, the government will not be able to provide assistance to the regions from state material reserves. “It is defined in the law in this way, all measures declared by the municipality must also be financed. That is, if we prohibit any activities of some say services or something when providing something, such as the transport of vaccine doses, tests, purchase tests, it’s all over, “said Vondrák.
