Slovakia Enters Strict Covid Lockdown as Hospitals Get Overrun

Slovakia entered a strict lockdown, including a curfew, as it is struggling to curb one of the world’s worst Covid-19 outbreaks.

The government of the European Union nation approved a state of emergency starting on Thursday and closed most retail businesses for at least two weeks.

Residents can only leave their homes to go to work or school and to visit essential shops and services.

The motion resembles a growing trend in the western EU, where Austria has imposed a full lockdown and Germany has tightened social-distancing rules. Fewer than a half of Slovakia’s 5.5 million people are fully vaccinated, and the ex-communist country registered a record 10,315 new infections on Tuesday.
