TASR brings a quick morning overview of the most important events seen in Slovakia on the previous day (Saturday, June 13): NEW CORONAVIRUS CASES: 3 Infections in total: 1,545 NEW CORONAVIRUS DEATHS: 0 (last death reported on May 15) Deaths in total: 28 BRATISLAVA - The state of emergency will end at midnight from Saturday to Sunday (June 14) as announced by the Government following its meeting on Wednesday (June 10). The 'state of alert' remains in place even after the end of the state of emergency. BRATISLAVA - The last six repatriates left the quarantine facility in Gabcikovo (Trnava region) on Friday, June 12, Zuzana Farkasova of the Firefighters and Emergency Corps (HaZZ) told TASR, adding that this happened after 89 days of continuous operation of the quarantine facility, which was the first in Slovakia to be set up in connection with COVID-19. "Over the three months, 3,678 repatriates were accommodated in Gabcikovo, of whom 58 were tested positive for the novel coronavirus," said Farkasova. In the case of four repatriates, the quarantine period reached up to 50 days. BRATISLAVA - Parliamentary Vice-chair Gabor Grendel (OLaNO), speaking on RTVS's programme 'Sobotne dialogy' (Saturday Dialogues), stated that if the devices seized by the police during the raid at the National Agency for Network and Electronic Services (NASES) did not serve what they were supposed to and ended up in private hands, it's an extremely serious problem. Together with Smer-SD Vice-chairman and MP Juraj Blanar, they concurred that it's necessary to wait for the results of the expert examination and the police investigation. Blanar considers Vice-premier Veronika Remisova's (For the People) reaction to the intervention to be an effort to make politics. BRATISLAVA - I consider the process of debt relief for hospitals by the previous government to be one of the biggest failures in the health care sector, Dusan Zachar, an analyst at the Institute for Economic and Social Reforms (INEKO), said in an interview with TASR, adding that the debt relief has not met any of the declared objectives that debt-free public hospitals will no longer operate with a loss and will not generate new overdue debts. According to the analyst, the opposite has become a reality. Zachar pointed out that last year the pace of running into debts by state hospitals accelerated the most over the past years, which, in his words, is a textbook example of the so-called moral hazard. "The government's concept of debt relief for medical facilities has turned into scrap paper. Hospitals' recovery plans have remained secret, so the public couldn't press for them to be met and for public finances, that is the money of all of us, to be used effectively," he said. am
