When you look at the statistics, I bought free capacity in hospitals for the price of the pain of a number of people, because patients were supposed to fly there after the operations today. Those who can wait for the total endoprosthesis, wait for surgery, in pain a number of msc and now have to wait again. And I have a complete upset that at the same time, a group will gather in the center of Prague and demonstrate there for the first time to go to hockey and for their freedom.
