Coalition deputies are defending, while the opposition is criticizing the new measures – Domestic – News


The growing number of coronavirus cases confirms that there is a pandemic of the unvaccinated in Slovakia. Tightening anti-pandemic measures must therefore also create the conditions for those who are vaccinated to be rewarded for their responsibility. In the discussion program TA3 V politika, the chairwoman of the SaS parliamentary group in the National Council of the Slovak Republic, Anna Zemanová, pointed this out, who also reminded that the changes are aimed at at least partial opening of the economy in the most affected districts.

It also dispelled the opposition’s doubts as to whether any of the approved measures were feasible. These are, for example, doubts about the tests for unvaccinated employees that employers should have at their disposal. “There are plenty of tests, and they will be self-tests, there will be no need to create any MOMs,” she said.

Erik Tomáš, a member of the parliamentary committee on social affairs and vice-chairman of the Voice, thinks that the tightening of anti-pandemic measures creates an unequal approach and a risk of segregation. He recalled that he had not voted for colleagues due to substantive disagreement with several changes, and criticized in particular that the pandemic PN should reach the standard level.

In the discussion, Tomáš Taraba, a member of the National Council of the Slovak Republic Committee for Culture and the Media, expressed his disagreement with the fact that similar laws would be approved in a shortened procedure. He again called on President Zuzana Čaputová to veto the law. “I also fully support the idea of ​​turning to the Constitutional Court in connection with the legislation,” he said.

Juraj Krúpa (OĽANO), Chairman of the Committee of the National Council of the Slovak Republic for Defense and Security, emphasized that the deteriorating epidemic situation, characterized by an increase in diseases with a significant predominance of unvaccinated, threatens the provision of health care for patients with other diagnoses, including those most at risk. Krupa also thinks that the vaccinated should have freedoms and therefore rejects the blanket understanding of measures as restrictive measures. “We are not taking steps to close, but, on the contrary, to relax restrictions,” he said.

Coalition MPs think there is no reason for a more favorable pandemic PN to pay after a long enough time for people to be vaccinated and increase protection against COVID-19. Opposition MPs, on the other hand, think that this step reduces people’s willingness to be responsible and remain isolated, thus increasing the risk of the infection spreading.
