Final Word from Wednesday, July 14, 2021

If you're healthy, the Czech state plans to stop paying for your corona tests as of Sept. 1. It will still pay for the tests if you're sick and showing symptoms, but not if you are the picture of good health. Until such a person gets a test or a double vaccination, the state will automatically presume for many purposes that he or she is infectious, whether it's true or not. The stated effort of Health Min. Adam Vojtěch is to encourage people to get vaccinated, and forcing them to pay for regular tests will certainly have this effect on many. Many others, however, will avoid vaccination and testing at all cost and will continue to roam the streets, go in food stores and ride public transportation in a state of presumed infection. Think of all the people these healthy, untested souls could infect! The state has already shown that it knows how to deal with such menaces. Remember how it banned any interaction that wasn't absolutely necessary, even between family members? Anyone who is "presumed infected" can simply be denied the right to interact with others. Except, of course, with those administering an mRNA vaccine. [ Czech Republic fully coronavirus covid-19 ]
