The government approved an update of a map of districts of the Covid automat warning system on Wednesday. The epidemic situation is still improving.

From June 14, two districts will be red, three districts will be light red, 19 districts will be orange and 49 districts will be yellow. Six districts will turn green.

There will not be any districts in the black or dark red tier.

The epidemic situation in Slovakia keeps improving. There are 200 cases per day on average and 314 patients are hospitalised. The numbers are decreasing by 20 percent per week.

“The positive thing is that we have less than 30 patients who require artificial lung ventilators,” said Matej Mišík, an analyst of the Health Ministry.

There are also more than a million fully-vaccinated people. The Health Ministry is coming up with some ways to speed up vaccination.

From June 30, mobile testing sites will no longer function as they have been, Health Minister Vladimír Lengvarský said. They should be combined with sampling points for PCR and LAMP tests, and there should be fewer of them.

The state also plans to reimburse the costs of PCR tests for children before they enter summer camps, but it did not specify how many would be reimbursed.
