Many European countries are adopting stricter measures, and the number of infected people across the Old World is increasing.
At the same time, the entire EU’s vaccine is still in short supply, although in the next few days, weeks, especially months, the vaccine will eventually return to normal.
Next weekend is Easter, which is the biggest Catholic holiday. Governments are worried that people will gather farther, which may lead to a new increase in cases.
This is why more countries are resorting to new measures while waiting for vaccination to begin to have a more serious impact on the spread of the pandemic. They are somewhere in the country, somewhere in the place, and somewhere in the place and the country. They change frequently, and many adapt to local conditions, so it is difficult to monitor the entire situation in Europe.
The Slovenians, our closest neighbors, are actually going to implement a new blockade before Easter.
The Slovenian government accepted the advice of epidemiologists on Sunday afternoon to adopt stricter anti-epidemic measures, namely 11-day imprisonment. Due to the increase in the number of new infections in the country, the measures will take effect from April 1 to 11.
During this period, relocation to areas outside of the area will be prohibited again, except on Easter Day, when it is possible to gather up to six people from two families with children from the same family. Most public administration departments will introduce jobs at home. In addition to using annual leave, state-owned enterprises and private employers are also recommended to participate.
It also reintroduced the mandatory wearing of protective masks outdoors.
Prime Minister James Jansa said that due to “worrisome circumstances” regarding the growth of the epidemic in certain countries in the western Balkans, strict controls on external borders have also been imposed.
According to the driving system on Sundays and holidays, public transportation will operate to a certain extent.
Except for the children of parents who are employed in important national infrastructure, schools and kindergartens have once again temporarily returned to the distance system.
On Sunday night, Slovenia also announced new regulations regarding transit.
Interior Minister Ales Hojs said: “From Tuesday, Slovenians are banned from entering the red list and will only be allowed to enter after PCR negative or vaccination certificate is presented,” on Sunday.
Alesh Hoth said at a press conference: “The decree imposes measures to restrict border crossings on all four neighboring countries, and the decree will last until at least April 12.
The Slovenian Minister said: “This measure was taken before the Easter holiday, when Slovenian residents, their families and relatives will flood into the western Balkans, where the epidemiological situation is extremely bad,” the Slovenian minister said.
The new entry and exit regulations apply to all countries on the red epidemiological list, including all countries within the territory of the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Read more details here.
