âThe session will focus on the start of the school year. That is why we have invited to the session representatives of the teachers’ union, the president of the high school forum and the president of the pediatrician association, who will address the public later. , said the Prime Minister.
“The proposal is to start normally, with a full case of 45-minute lessons with compulsory masks, and to call on all educators to be vaccinated, if they are not, or if they are, to pass at the third booster dose, as well as to immunize children over 12 years old, âBrnabi said.
When asked how was it possible that with almost 2,000 newly infected people, school could begin, whereas last year we sent children with a much smaller number of infected to the online or combined system, she replied that it is clear – we have to learn to live with this virus.
“We now have the best weapon against this virus, and that is vaccination, and now we can talk more about how to stimulate people,” she said. She also pointed out that there weren’t enough people vaccinated, but over the past week this has slowly accelerated, she added and said that an important factor now in the fight against the coronavirus is the fact that we have COVID hospitals.
Responding to the question of whether medical staff can be forced to be vaccinated, considering that 34% of them have not been vaccinated, the Prime Minister indicates that this will also be discussed during the session of the cell of crisis today.
Personally, I am in favor of making vaccination mandatory, she replied and said that 34 percent of unvaccinated medical workers is a huge number.
âIf you ask me, 100 percent of them need to be vaccinated. They have special responsibility, the Minister of Health has done a lot in this regard, so that medical workers can be vaccinated. A compulsory test has been introduced for those who have not been vaccinated to go to work. But whether anyone can be forced to get vaccinated is a legal question and further consultations with the legal team are needed to see if this is possible, âBrnabic said.
She stressed that the arguments of those who do not want to be vaccinated, according to her, fall within the realm of the paranormal.
“Whatever you do for a living, you buy real estate, you talk to an expert about it, how come you don’t trust doctors,” the prime minister asked.
The problem is vaccination of young people, and when asked how she plans to force them – with coupons, COVID passes, she replies that it is not that simple.
I can’t say at this point if it will be mandatory. All the stories about him distract us from the civilizational question. There will be other diseases and vaccines. What will happen then, she wondered. “People will start to die from the plague and cholera …”
