Final Word from Monday, April 12, 2021

With the launch today of mandatory corona testing of schoolchildren as young as five years old, the Czech government has given up any pretense of putting health first. One year ago PM Andrej Babiš told Parliament that the cabinet was thinking every day from morning to night about how to protect the health of the people. Yet instead of finding new ways to identify, protect and treat those who are most susceptible to the disease, the government has fully embraced the ideology of covidism. Lofty language about the sanctity of human life has been replaced with a fanatical effort to make sure every healthy person is tested or vaccinated, regardless of whether it makes medical or economic sense. Industry Min. Karel Havlíček is proud that the CR is now doing more mandatory testing than any other country in Europe. Whether the effort and expense that goes into this detracts from preventing the death of people who nevertheless contract the disease isn't considered important.
