Bratislava, Aug 18 (CTK) – The Slovak Foreign Ministry has recommended that its citizens reconsider traveling to selected areas in the countries with which Slovakia otherwise has free travel, such as the Czech capital Prague, the TASR Slovak press agency reported today.

The Ministry advises people to consider the necessity of their trips in connection with the COVID-19 epidemiological situation in the given areas.

Those who would decide to visit these regions should permanently monitor the situation and respect the epidemiologists’ recommendations, the Ministry said.

Slovakia previously put some Dutch, Irish, Polish and British regions on the list of the areas worth of consideration for COVID-19 risk.

Today, it has newly added Belgium, Prague, two Croatian provinces, one Danish, one Estonian and three French regions.

Slovakia registered a total of 2,922 cases of coronavirus by Monday. The country’s coronavirus death toll is 31.
