“We are losing the fight against the pandemic, we need a lockdown”, said President Zuzana Čaputová on Tuesday after visiting the hospital in Ružinov in Bratislava. According to her, it should affect everyone.

She pointed to the number of hospitalized, victimized, but also exhausted paramedics. She was quite angrily called for stopping the spread of “covid delusions” or “covid silencing.” According to her, people must start listening to experts.

She also added that in the fight against COVID-19 we are the worst in the world in terms of newly infected people per million inhabitants. She said in a statement that she did not know what more people needed to hear and see in order to change attitudes. Although the lockdown will be unfair to responsible and vaccinated people, they see no other solution.

“What I saw today at Ružinov Hospital was tragic and terrible. How is it possible that paramedics who save people face threats. Sometimes I feel that I do not know this country, said Čaputová.
