Mayor of Bratislava Matúš Vallo.
We must quell the anger and hope that in two weeks the situation in the hospitals will stabilize and at least those vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to return to life before the lockdown.
This was announced by the mayor of Bratislava Matúš Vallo. Bratislava is one of the areas with the highest vaccination coverage in Slovakia. In the capital, 64 percent of the population is vaccinated.
“In this situation, no one in charge has any doubts that a government-approved lockdown is necessary,” Vallo said, adding that the situation in Slovakia had deteriorated dramatically and hospitals were no longer able to cope with the onslaught of patients with COVID-19.
The mayor declares that the people of Bratislava did everything they could. “That’s why we stayed in red for a few weeks, while the rest of Slovakia gradually turned burgundy and black. Unfortunately, others did not follow us, and therefore our efforts were not enough to avert this situation, “he said. He called on the inhabitants of the capital to abide by the rules.
In the next two weeks, the so-called lockdown. This means closed restaurants, cafes, shops (other than basic ones such as groceries, pharmacies or drugstores), a ban on attending sporting events or organizing parties.
