Ensure Health Services Continue to Run, Healthcare Workers in Czech can continue to work even though they are positive for Covid-19


Suara.com – Amid an increase in Covid-19 cases due to the highly contagious variant of Omicron, several countries are struggling to keep essential services, including healthcare, running.

This is what underlies the Czech government to allow health workers, aka health workers and social services, to continue working even though they are suffering from Covid-19. But with a note, they do not experience symptoms.

Reporting from Reuters, the new regulation is considered less ambitious compared to the previous regulation planned by the Government, in which people who are allowed to continue to go to work are required to only go to work, and return home immediately after finishing work.

They are required to wear masks and eat in separate rooms, Health Minister Vlastimil Valek said.

The Minister of Health estimates that only a few hundred workers will qualify under the new regulation, which will be applied only when necessary.

“The measures will be set in such a way as to ensure there is no possibility that they could infect the workers in the vicinity,” Valek said, quoting Antara.

Earlier, the Czech government said it had created a list containing more essential fields, whose workers would be covered by the scheme. The groups identified at the time included emergency services, police and energy industry officials.

The step taken by the Czech Republic is the latest policy regarding the easing of restrictions imposed in Europe.

Minister of Health Valek told reporters that the government hopes to control the wave of transmission of Omicron.
