The Czech Republic should step up coronavirus testing, Slovak Prime Minister Igor Matovic said at the pilgrimage to Our Lady of Sorrows, the patron saint of Slovakia, in Sastin (Trnava region) on Tuesday, as Slovakia is about to place the Czech Republic on its list of high-risk (red) countries concerning coronavirus. Matovic said that he has already discussed this with his Czech counterpart Andrej Babis via telephone. "We've straightened things out. Mr. Babis is cool about it," said Matovic.
