Prime Minister Igor Matovič has contracted the coronavirus, he confirmed on December 19, when he received a positive test result.
The Aktuality.sk website was first to report that Matovič tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
"Please be extremely careful," Matovič wrote on Facebook on Friday afternoon, in a long post in which he also reiterated that this is the time to think of the vulnerable among us, and that freedom does not mean that "our rights are absolute and the vulnerable should just shut up and pray".
"Yes, statistically I should survive it without harm, but if I could sacrifice my life for the lives of thousands of innocent victims, I'd do it," Matovič wrote.
