Parliament terminated the emergency powers handed to the government in March in response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus epidemic.
Under the law, the government may order a state of health emergency at the proposal of the chief medical officer.
Such an emergency can be called if people’s lives are endangered or if the fitness of health-care staff is compromised to an extent that demand for health care outstrips supply. It also applies if hospitals are burdened to the extent that the quality of care is seriously compromised.
The law defines six months as the maximum period it can be applied, though the government can order an extension.
