The 113 people suspected of having COVID-19 (coronavirus) subjected to laboratory testing have proved negative in Slovakia. Even so, the government and its Security Council dealt with the possibility of coronavirus infection in Slovakia on February 27.
A crisis staff will be established at the Health Ministry. From February 28, all passengers at international airports - Bratislava, Košice, Poprad – will have their temperatures measured. Random checks will include those who arrive in Slovakia by car, especially at the border crossings with Austria, the Interior Ministry said.
The staff can propose that the government declare an emergency in case of need. In relation to the coronavirus, the government also agreed to contribute €200,000 to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in early February.
The government decided to launch an information campaign on how to behave and protect oneself from coronavirus as well.
