The government will discuss the possibility of declaring a new state of emergency

According to the Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES), it cannot be assumed that the possibilities of anti-coronavirus measures will be comparable to the state of emergency, according to him they will not be so effective. The government will also debate the possibility of declaring a new state of emergency, but it must be in accordance with the constitution, said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Alena Schillerová (for YES). The cabinet should meet on Friday from 12:00.

Due to a coronavirus pandemic, the government asked for another 30 days of a state of emergency, but deputies rejected it, as did a proposal by the People’s Party of Stanislav Juránek to extend the state of emergency by two weeks. It will end on Sunday.

“Opposition deputies cynically bet that the more they boil the government, the more voters will trust the opposition. The result will be chaos and distrust in politics as a whole. I wonder how the ODS, KDU-ČSL, Pirates or STAN will explain it to their governors.” Hamáček said. The governors have already called on the government to hold joint talks on Friday.

48 deputies of the coalition ANO and the CSSD raised their hands for the government’s request, the whole opposition was against. At least 54 parliamentary votes were required for adoption. As for the number of votes, the decision on Juránek’s proposal turned out. The vast majority of government restrictions on the containment of covid-19 are tied to the state of emergency. However, some of them could be issued in another way.

“The state of emergency is a tool of crisis management, it is not a policy. It is something we need in order to effectively manage the crisis situation to which the epidemic undoubtedly belongs,” said Blatný. According to him, it would not be correct to assume that the possibilities of fighting a pandemic after the end of the emergency will be comparable.

The Minister also stated that the governors of all regions will probably have to declare a state of danger. “Gradually, we will get into a situation that is identical to the current state of emergency. We will only lose a lot of time and we will most likely have to return to the state of emergency,” he said. There is a danger that the “aggravated” situation may be transferred to all hospitals, and that the national inpatient care control room may collapse, he says. He called on citizens to continue to comply with anti-coronavirus measures.
