Slovakia will be put in lockdown for two weeks from Thursday, November 25th 2021. The government decided on this at Wednesday’s meeting. Prime Minister Eduard Heger said that from midnight today, a state of emergency would apply in Slovakia for a maximum of 90 days.

“It is important to realize that if we want to beat the crown, it is about every single citizen. Covid is spreading among the people, so compliance is a key to success. We need to be locked up as a society. The situation is serious, we got into it because the measures were not followed,” said Heger.
