The Slovak Spectator has decided to leave all the articles about the coronavirus available for everyone.

We believe this is an issue where accurate and fact-based information is important for people to cope.
Slovakia does not have enough reliable tests that can reveal the coronavirus disease in the first stage, while other tests are not even on the way. Those ordered by the Administration of State Material Reserves are unreliable and too expensive.
This stems from the March 22 inspection at the state company led by PM Igor Matovič and Finance Minister Eduard Heger, both Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO). Matovič will propose Economy Minister Richard Sulík of Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), under whose department the Administration of State Material Reserves runs, to dismiss its head, Kajetán Kičura. He has been at the helm since 2012, after being nominated by Smer.
