PM discloses no information on consultations with experts

By: V4 Agency

The prime minister is expected to announce new measures at a press conference scheduled for Friday.

Although consulations with experts began three days ago at Slovakia’s government office, PM Igor Matovic continued to disclose no details even after the second round of talks on   Wednesday. Following the meeting on Wednesday, the Slovak premier only revealed that an agreement has been reached concerning dozens of proposals. “We’ve had an extremely productive, objective, constructive and – I must say – technical exchange of views,” Mr Matovic said.

He said he would make a public announcement on the specific precautionary measures on Friday, adding that he first intends to present his plans to his coalition partners. He stressed that he will seek support for the measures not only from the coalition but also from the opposition and President Zuzana Caputova.

In his Facebook entry on Thursday, Slovakia’s premier announced that he is conducting talks regarding a potential borrowing mechanism for vaccines, which would help certain countries to overcome periods when they receive very limited vaccine supplies, he explained.

On Wednesday, Slovakia registered 2438 new cases of coronavirus infection, with a 22.25% positivity rate on the PCRs and 2.17% for antigen tests. By Wednesday, the first vaccine doses have been administered to 294,165 Slovak citizens, and 115,269 individuals have already received the second jab.
