Matovic said on Sunday that he was ready to resign but remain a member of the government. “In order to calm the situation”, the Minister of Economic Affairs and the Minister of Justice of two smaller coalition parties would also have to resign.
The junior partners in the coalition had threatened to withdraw from the government if Matovic did not step down by Wednesday. The Slovak government is under pressure because of the Corona crisis.

Only grocery stores, pharmacies, petrol stations and other sales outlets necessary for the basic supplies of the population are allowed to keep open. Exit restrictions have also been in effect since Saturday, compliance with which the police control.

The Slovak Prime Minister Igor Matovic would like to carry out corona mass tests on a regular basis. That would be an alternative to a strict lockdown, the liberal daily “Dennik N” quoted him on Saturday:
“If we ask ourselves whether it is better to lock the whole of Slovakia in a nationwide lockdown, so that millions of people without work and the Shops are closed (...), or whether we all go to a test like this once a week, maybe spend an hour there (...),
then I believe that 99.9 percent of working people are in favor of the nationwide testing. " Since Saturday morning, Slovakia has continued an unprecedented mass test of a large part of the population. Within two days,

The Slovak government has extended the current nationwide curfew until November 14th. If you cannot show a negative Corona test, you are not even allowed to leave your apartment to go to work.
Only urgently necessary errands and taking a corona test are allowed. People arriving from abroad run into a particular dilemma. Due to a government ordinance,
one may enter unhindered from Germany or another country not qualified as a risk country without having to show a negative corona test or having to go into quarantine.

In Slovakia, almost the entire population is tested twice for Sars-CoV-2. At the beginning of the first round of the free mass tests on the weekend, there was a great rush in front of the almost 5,000 acceptance points.
Waiting times of up to three hours had to be expected in the capital Bratislava. On Sunday, the situation in the EU member state with just under 5.5 million inhabitants relaxed to a large extent.
The conservative Prime Minister Igor Matovic had presented the logistical mega-project as an alternative to a hard lockdown: "We have a great opportunity to show Europe and the world that there is another way, without the economy closing and millions of unemployed people."

The first round of nationwide corona mass tests began in Slovakia on Saturday. Long queues have formed in front of the delivery points since early morning.
According to the city administration, waiting times of one to three hours had to be expected in the capital Bratislava. According to the Ministry of Health, only 91 percent of all test sites across the country could be opened by morning.
Among other things, there was a lack of medical staff, although a bonus payment of 500 euros beckons for use. The Conservative Prime Minister Igor Matovic, who has been in power since March, presented the mass test as an alternative to lockdown:

In view of the increasing number of new infections with the corona virus, Slovakia wants to offer nationwide test options. Citizens would be able to get tested for free at around 6,000 stations across the country,
said Prime Minister Igor Matovic, according to the Slovakian agency TASR. Children under ten years of age are excluded. At first it was unclear whether the tests would be voluntary or mandatory. The government has ordered around 13,000 million antigen tests,
which it hopes will result in quick results. The action should therefore take place on the next two weekends. The police and the military should help with the implementation. "If we can do that, we will be a role model for the whole world," said Matovic.

Out of anger over criticism of the government's Corona measures, the President of the Slovak Parliament Boris Kollar has banned all MPs from entering the parliamentary canteen.
From now on, drinking water from the toilet rooms of the house is the only food that will be made available to the 150 parliamentarians, explained the head of the second largest ruling party "We are a family" in a specially convened press conference.
"So that you can see where the constant criticism has led you," the right-wing populist justified his punitive measure. He published a photo of a washbasin in one of the parliamentary toilets on Facebook.

The rapidly increasing number of corona infections in Slovakia has increased the pressure on Health Minister Marek Krajci. He only stays in office because he still feels the support of Prime Minister Igor Matovic.
Otherwise he would be "on the brink" to resign, said the minister on Friday in response to journalists' questions. At the beginning of the week, the medical association had accused him of serious management errors.
Instead of drawing lessons from the first wave of infections in spring and preparing the health facilities for an expected second wave, Krajci's ministry has let the past few months slip by, criticized the medical professional.

Due to the recent rapid increase in the number of corona infections, the Slovak government has declared a state of emergency. When the state of emergency comes into force from tomorrow, the authorities will be given extraordinary powers.
For example, they can oblige medical staff to work while on vacation and redistribute urgently needed health supplies regardless of valid orders. The state of emergency is controversial above all because it also allows for a ban on demonstrations and
assemblies as well as further restrictions on the freedom of movement of citizens. For the first time, the emergency in Slovakia already applied during the first corona wave from mid-March to mid-June.

Due to a data leak in the state health system, the personal data of nearly 400,000 Slovak citizens who had been tested for the virus got unsecured onto the Internet. This was confirmed by the National Center for Health Information NCZI.
The leak has now been repaired, said NCZI boss Peter Bielik. A group of so-called ethical hackers had drawn attention to the mistake. The data included names, dates of birth, addresses, test results, disease courses and other laboratory data.
The public was only informed after the authorities closed the data leak, IT specialist Pavol Luptak told the news portal Pravda.sk.
