“The health system was ready for the virus and continued healthcare has been ensured through good reorganisation and adjustment,” he said at a cabinet meeting.

“The health system’s resilience is also characterised by the ability to plan for and adjust to unplanned circumstances in order to maintain a vital activity. Although occasionally significantly overwhelmed, the health system remained stable and vital functioning was not in danger. That shows the strength of our profession, the medical personnel and organisation.”

Beroš went on to say that last year saw a rise in cancer hospitalisations and that this showed the health system’s special care for those patients.
