Businesses, economy minister welcome easing of measures, health minister worried

By: O.K., STA

A temporary relaxation of some anti-coronavirus restrictions kicking in on 15 December until 23 December is a major step towards relaunching the economy, Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek said, noting that rules and guidelines by medical experts should be heeded consistently.

Business representatives welcomed the step and urged compliance with the rules. Health Minister Tomaž Gantar meanwhile said he was worried about limited healthcare capacity, so he advocates stepping up restrictions during the coming holidays. The government is to review the latest epidemiological developments on Thursday. Unofficial reports suggest a full lockdown could be introduced for 24 December-4 January, meaning only health institutions, pharmacies and grocers would be open.
