Governement in dilemma about new coronavirus variants, new lockdown

By: J.S., STA

New variants of coronavirus pose a dilemma about whether to proceed with the planned colour-coded exit strategy or impose stricter lockdown for a short period of time, PM Janez Janša said in parliament, as he answered a coalition MP question whether the government was planning any new measures in connection with Covid-19.

A potential fast spread of the new coronavirus variants in the coming weeks brings a dilemma of whether to tighten the measures for a short period of time to the level of lockdown, as was the case in Great Britain and the Czech Republic, Janša told the National Assembly.

Interior Minister Aleš Hojs told MPs that Slovenia’s border restrictions could be tightened as early as this week as part of efforts to contain the epidemic. All European countries, including Slovenia, will most likely have to make their border protocols stricter in the coming days. In Slovenia, an expert group of epidemiologists and doctors is in favour of a strict closure of border crossings on the country’s internal borders, said Hojs, who personally does not believe that any easing of border restrictions could take place in the near future.
