On Wednesday, the Cabinet approved €200,000 as an increased contribution to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in connection with the coronavirus epidemic. According to Finance Minister Ladislav Kamenický, the volume of money is an agreed-upon compromise between his ministry and the Foreign Affairs Ministry that have been asked for such a contribution from Slovakia. The Chinese freight aircraft that should pick up humanitarian aid can land in Bratislava only under the condition that the crew does not leave the plane. "If the crew agrees to spend the night and take their obligatory rest inside the aircraft, they'll get permission to land," noted Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini on Wednesday. Another condition, according to Pellegrini, is that the aircraft will park in a part of the airport where it can be put under full surveillance. At the same time those who come into contact with the aircraft will observe all protective measures.
