Czech Republic, the positive Covid president appoints the premier from behind a plexiglass cube

Petr Fiala was appointed Prime Minister of the Czech Republic by President Milos Zeman, in an unusual ceremony during which the head of state, seated in a wheelchair and suffering from Covid, remained at a distance, protected by a plexiglass screen. “I am convinced that we will soon have a strong and stable government,” said the new premier, leader of the right-wing Civic Democrats party. The ceremony took place at President Zeman’s residence at Lany Castle, west of Prague and broadcast live on television. Zeman – who tested positive for coronavirus last week after a long period of intensive care for a liver problem – was taken to the state room inside the residence by hospital staff, protected by the appropriate suits. The 77-year-old president is a heavy smoker, used to drinking a lot in passing, who also suffers from diabetes. THE ARTICLE Fiala, a pro-European at the helm of Prague.
