Another European state enters lockdown

Another European state enters lockdown. Slovakia announced yesterday that it will impose a lockdown that will last two weeks, in order to reduce the number of COVID-19 infections that is increasing. The vaccination rate is 50%, and the number of hospitalized people is constantly increasing.

Restrictions are aimed at closing non-essential restaurants and shops and banning people from moving away from home. Slovak citizens will be able to leave their homes only for essential shopping, to go to work, to school and to the doctor. The restrictions apply to both unvaccinated and vaccinated people.

The pandemic situation will be reassessed after 10 days. If there is a need to relax the restrictions, the only people who will benefit from them are the vaccinated or those who have gone through the disease.

Slovakia currently has an incidence rate of 1,296 cases of COVID-19 infection per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days, the highest rate in the world. Over 80% of hospitalized patients are unvaccinated.
