PM rejects criticism govt not listening to experts

Prime Minister Janez Janša rebuffed critics who have accused the government of sidelining public health professionals. He said the government had listened to a broader circle of experts beyond the domestic National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).

 

The government “listened to advice by domestic and foreign epidemiologists. Including those at [NIJZ] who can at least use #Google,” he wrote on Twitter. The government has taken the decisions based on the opinion of experts “but it is true that the so-called experts in Slovenia were not unanimous for a long time and we always had to see how other countries and experts in other countries are responding,” he told the press after visiting UKC Ljubljana.
