first_imgThe Czech government said Monday it would lift restrictions on international passenger road and rail transport on May 11, while neighboring Slovakia also announced it would ease measures taken to contain the coronavirus.”It will be possible to use buses and trains to cross the border,” Czech Transport Minister Karel Havlicek said in a tweet.The EU member state of 10.7 million people, which has registered more than 7,700 confirmed cases of the virus including 251 deaths, banned international passenger transport on March 14. The government closed its borders two days later, only reopening them in mid-April for some Czechs with the caveat that they must undergo two weeks of quarantine upon return.With EU business travellers allowed to enter since April 27, the Czech government said Monday it would also let in non-EU travellers as of next week to ensure seasonal jobs. All incoming foreigners will need a negative virus test.The central European nation and neighbor Slovakia will both also reopen all shops and most service providers, restaurants — for outdoor seating only — as well as museums and galleries.Slovakia, an EU member of 5.4 million people, has scheduled the grand opening for Wednesday, while the Czech Republic will follow suit next week.  Slovak Prime Minister Igor Matovic told reporters the government was easing restrictions because of the low number of new coronavirus cases. His country recorded only five new infections and one new death on Sunday, putting the total tally at 1,413 cases including 25 deaths.According to the EU’s health agency ECDC, Slovakia has Europe’s lowest coronavirus death rate, at 0.4 per 100,000 inhabitants.Matovic said church mass and weddings would be allowed again, but under strict conditions. Other group gatherings are still off-limits unless the individuals share a household.Kindergartens and schools will remain closed for now, said Matovic — unlike in the Czech Republic, where some students will be able to return to school next week. The Czech government added that it would extend the cap on public events to 100 people and allow sports competitions with the same attendance limit. Wearing masks has been mandatory in both countries since March, and that restriction remains in place.center_img Topics :last_img read more


first_imgEldin Jakupovic was born on the 2nd of October 1984. He is Bosnian-Swiss professional football player, goalkeeper of Hull, and new member of the English Premier League. Jakupovic was born in Prijedor. His family escaped to Switzerland because of the war in BiH.He started his professional career at Grasshoppers from Zurich, and year later, moved to FC Thun. After a success, Jakupovic became a member of FC Lokomotiv Moscow in March 2006. He moved to Aris in September 2011, and finally signed for Hull in 2012.Jakupovic joined Hull City in March of 2012. He defended so impressively on one friendly match that manager Nick Barmby expressed a desire for an emergency signing of contract on an indefinite period. Jakupovic signed a contract with Hull City on 2 years. He slowly progressed in the Hall, whose players, because of the characteristic ocher-black jerseys, are called “Tigers”. He started as the third goalkeeper behind Allan McGregor and Steven Harper. He was waiting for his chance for a long time, and when he finally got it, he was brilliant against the famous Arsenal in the FA Cup in February this year. Sports fans in BiH were able to see his fantastic appearance and after the result 0:0, Hull got another match against the famous Arsenal.Jakupovic has dual citizenship, both BiH and Switzerland. He played for BiH and Switzerland in U-21. Meanwhile he felt neglected, and refused to play for BiH on several occasions.In October 2008, Jakupovic refused the national team of Switzerland, saying that he does not want to play for family reasons. Today he would probably accept the invitation of Bazdarevic. Although he is 32 years old, that is not problem for him, because, goalkeepers have a longer playing lifetime. The teammates of Eldin say that he is a real tiger.(Source: nap.ba)last_img read more
