Bratislava, February 23 (TASR) - Independent lawmakers centred around Peter Pellegrini won't lend their support to extending the state of emergency in Parliament, TASR learnt on Tuesday. Speaking at a press conference, Pellegrini claimed that the Government has failed to justify the extension appropriately, and he pointed out that not even the curfew has helped to ameliorate the critical epidemiological situation bedevilling Slovakia. Pellegrini believes that the Government should redirect its focus towards prevention and treating COVID-19 patients before they end up in hospital. "We're not doing this, and then we're surprised to be the country with the highest number of patients [per capita] in hospital. The Government has failed in this," he said. Pellegrini reiterated his criticism of Prime Minister Igor Matovic (OLaNO) for his failure to heed the advice of experts. He hopes that Matovic will start to listen instead of heaping insults on scientists, and he urged the Cabinet to quicken the pace of vaccinating the high-risk strata of society. mf/df
