Czech Health Minister Adam Vojtech on Monday introduced his resignation, almost three years after taking workplace and amid rising criticism over his dealing with of a current spike in COVID-19 circumstances throughout the nation.
“I want to create space for a new solution to the coronavirus epidemic, which will be with us for some time to come,” Vojtech stated throughout a press convention on Monday morning.
“I performed the function with my heart and my colleagues. Many changes have been implemented in those three years,” he added.
The nation’s Prime Minister, Andrej Babis thanked Vojtech for the work he has achieved in healthcare, saying that “he did more work in the ministry than most of his predecessors,” managing to deal with the primary wave of the virus “unbelievably.”
“He is decent, honest and very hardworking person. I am convinced that if he did not have to expend all his energy on the fights against coronavirus, he would one day be remembered as the best Minister of Health,” Babis wrote in a Twitter publish on Monday.
In one other publish he wrote: “I understand that it must have been too much for him, that he was disgusted with politics and the media and decided to leave.”
Following Vojtech’s surprising resignation, Babis instantly nominated Professor Roman Prymula to take over the publish, as Czechia is noting a spike in COVID-19 circumstances, recording greater than 2,000 new circumstances per day.
Moc děkuju @adamvojtechano za práci, kterou na zdravotnictví vykonal. Je to slušný, poctivý a velmi pracovitý člověk. Jsem přesvědčen, že kdyby veškerou svou energii nemusel vydat na boj koronavirem, jednou by se na něj vzpomínalo jako na nejlepšího ministra zdravotnictví.
