Final Word from Monday, March 1, 2021

Every state of emergency declared by the Czech government in the past year, including the one on Fri., has been based on the presence in the CR of SARS CoV-2. The declaration of a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11 and March 12 of last year made this possible. The cabinet was always careful to distinguish in its declarations between the coronavirus and covid-19 (the disease). So few people have been sick with covid - showing symptoms - that it would be difficult to justify stripping people of their human rights if covid were the criterion. An invisible virus that only a test can detect is an easier justification. With the new pandemic law passed last week, this difference is blurred. Parliament officially declared that there is a covid epidemic, and the pandemic law will be used to require companies to test employees for this disease (not the virus). How companies are supposed to test for covid-19 with kits that test only for the virus will no doubt become a legal issue. [ Czech Republic WHO ]
