The Key Takeaways

Slovakia currently obtained the best 2-day regional snapshot in the world!

Second thing is: Slovaks pulled that off — 2.5M tested the first day! #EPIC

The Trick II

Some regions peaked, some are peaking and some are great for large scale testing.

Results by regions I: Positivity rate 0%–2%

The Results by sub-regions II: Positivity rates 0%–5%

Nationwide tests done, now what?

The Moral Hazard

Ok, so now what?

And you can bet the house — there will be no second wave of nationwide mandatory testing.

Regional OK, Nationwide NOK.
