BRATISLAVA (dpa-AFX) – The Slovak government has decided on a nationwide lockdown for two weeks from Thursday. This was announced by Vice Prime Minister Richard Sulik after a cabinet meeting on Wednesday. Contrary to previous plans, there are no exception rules for people who are vaccinated against Covid-19, said the minister of the TASR news agency.

According to the government plans, however, the schools should remain open. The condition for this is regular corona tests, as Sulik explained. The way to work is still possible, but a test will be compulsory from next Monday (November 29th). According to Sulik, however, all restaurants and shops will be closed with the exception of those that are essential for food and other basic needs.

On Wednesday, Slovakia exceeded the mark of more than 10,000 confirmed new corona infections in one day for the first time. The health authorities in Bratislava reported a total of 10,315 new cases in the EU country with its 5.5 million inhabitants – in Germany that would correspond to more than 150,000 new infections.
