Bratislava, October 17 (TASR) – Prime Minister Igor Matovič (OĽANO) admits his resignation if the announced plan for comprehensive testing of the country’s population in connection with the new coronavirus is not implemented. He announced this on Saturday during a press conference.”I am willing to give up, but at the same time I choose to resign,
“he said. He considers this to be the only way to stop the curve in situations where a key coalition partner publicly questions protective measures.”I am afraid that the current safeguards will not work in this way. Such a test can in no way hurt us, it can only help us,
“said the prime minister.
He added that if someone wanted to put pressure on him, maybe even from a coalition that he would not go down this path and “we will be here hot-hard to mine sick people through PCR tests“, so he won’t sign it.
In Slovakia, a comprehensive testing of the country’s population in connection with the COVID-19 disease is being prepared. The government has been preparing for the project for three weeks. It is not yet clear whether testing will be mandatory or voluntary.
