Popis epizódy
In the past weeks on our broadcasting, we had many occasions to bring you interesting life stories of various Slovak personalities, with the anniversaries of their births or passing observed. Well, today we will continue in this tradition, however, from the already covered areas of culture or politics, we will head to sports. These days, the founding President of the Slovak Olympic Committee and the first IOC member for Slovakia, Professor Vladimir Cernusak would have celebrated 100th birthday. At this occasion, we will also visit the newly opened Slovak Olympic and Sports Museum. But before we head there, we will speak to an epidemiologist from the Institute for Healthcare Analyses of the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic. Martin Pavelka talks about the current epidemic situation in Slovakia, which is currently the worst in the region. Why did it deteriorate this fast? And how will the new "omicron" variant hit Slovakia?
