PM Babis: Serbia ready to offer 100 thousand Pfizer vaccines to Czechia

By: V4 Agency

The announcement was made by Czech PM Andrej Babis on Twitter, who believes that the generous gift will enable the Czech Republic to step up its vaccination drive.

After talks with Czech President Milos Zeman and the presidents of the Czech parliamentary chambers on Tuesday, Serbian President Alexander Vucic met with Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Wednesday.

During his two-day visit in the Czech Republic, Serbia’s head of state consulted with his colleagues in Prague on bilateral relations, economic cooperation, the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination.

After his meeting with Mr Vucic, Andrej Babis announced on Twitter that Serbia is ready to send 100 thousand doses of Pfizer vaccine to the Czech Republic.

“Serbia’s president offered an incredible gift to us at our joint meeting. The 100 thousand Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines Serbia is ready to send will enable us to step up our vaccination campaign. I really appreciate the offer. I’m touched. Thank you very much,” PM Babis wrote on social media.

So far, a total of 4.1 million vaccines have been administered in the Czech Republic, and more than 1.1 million people have already received both doses.

The epidemic is on the decline in the Czech Republic, one of the V4 states, where the number of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants fell to 63 in the past seven days, a figure closely monitored by the government before any restrictions are eased or lifted. As announced earlier, authorities would begin to gradually phase out the current restrictions when the above number drops below 100.

As the epidemic situation showed signs of impovement, hair salons and businesses offering bodycare treatments were allowed to reopen two weeks ago, followed by shops one week ago. Primary school students were also allowed to return to their classrooms. The outdoor terraces of restaurants reopened on Monday. Spectators are now allowed to visit stadiums in limited numbers, while hotels, theatres and cinemas will also reopen soon.
