Prague – The planned actions of the government of Andrej Babiš (YES) against coronavirus are in any case useful, said President Miloš Zeman in Nova today. He will recommend to the probable future Prime Minister Petr Fial (ODS) to stay with them, he added. On Thursday, the Ministry of Health will propose to the government that no negative tests, either PCR or antigenic, be used as a cover certificate from Monday, November 22. Only a certificate of completed vaccination or proof of covid-19 in the last six months should be valid.

People who could have been vaccinated against coronavirus and not done so can endanger themselves and their surroundings, Zeman said. “I’ll advise him to stay with them,” he said of Fial and his impending disregard for the tests. Nova filmed the interview before Zeman’s afternoon meeting with Fiala.

The government plans to tighten due to the accelerating coronavirus epidemic. Laboratories in the Czech Republic confirmed 22,479 cases of the infection on Tuesday, about half more than on the previous Tuesday and at most in one day since the epidemic began last March. People with covid-19 in hospitals have increased by about a quarter to 4,425 in the past week.

Exceptions to the planned non-recognition of tests will be available to children between the ages of 12 and 18, who will be able to prove themselves by PCR test where certificates are required; younger children may no longer have to receive any certificates. Exceptions to the measure will also apply to people who have received the first dose of vaccination or are within 14 days after the second, but must submit a PCR test at the same time, or people who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons.

Nowadays, people have to prove themselves with a covid certificate in accordance with the measures in force for example, to visit restaurants, sports and cultural events, body care services, monuments, museums or zoos and botanical gardens or at accommodation. According to the Minister of Health Adam Vojtěch (for YES), there will be no exceptions for some places, except for medical and social facilities, spas and university dormitories.
