Czech Republic prime minister Andrej Babis nominated a top Epidemiologist to become health minister on Monday after the previous minister quit over a sharp rise in COVID-19 infections.

Roman Prymula, who helped lead the Central European country’s response to the initial coronavirus outbreak in march, will replace Adam Vojtech, who quit on Monday after criticism over the surge in new cases following an easing of restrictions.

He said on twitter he had nominated Prymula to president milos Zeman, who had promised to accept his appointment.

Prymula is widely seen as a straight talker. He once warned Czechs that travel could be disrupted for two years because of the novel coronavirus, and has said daily cases could swell to 6,000-8,000 from around 1,000-3,000 now.

Before the start of the summer, the government lifted almost all restrictions imposed during the first wave of the pandemic. The rate of new coronavirus cases has grown at the second fastest rate in Europe in recent weeks.

Vojtech had been heavily criticized over the new wave of infections although some opposition politicians saw him as a scapegoat for the government, which critics say has been inconsistent in managing its response.

In Milan tear gas was used to disperse protesters, and thousands of people gathered in the centre of Naples.

The demonstrations began soon after the national government’s order to close restaurants, bars, gyms and cinemas came into effect at 6pm local time.

Many regions have also imposed night-time COVID-19 curfews – including Lombardy, Milan and Piedmont, Turin.

The violence was blamed on extremist agitators and police said 28 people had been arrested in Milan alone.

“ECOWAS Commission expresses its condolences to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives during the protests and wishes the injured a speedy recovery.

While ECOWAS Commission recognizes the right of citizens to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly and protests, it also wishes to stress that those rights should be exercised in a non-violent manner.

In this regard, ECOWAS Commission calls on all protesters to remain peaceful in the conduct of their demonstrations.

It also urges the Nigerian security operatives to exercise restraint in the handling of the protests and act professionally.

“ECOWAS Commission further notes that, in an effort to address the demands of the protesting youth, the Federal Government of Nigeria took important decisions regarding disbandment of SARS, comprehensive police reforms and investigation of cases of police brutality.

It encourages the Nigerian Authorities to conduct the investigation rapidly.

“Finally, ECOWAS Commission appeals to the Federal Government of Nigeria, the Nigerian youth and the civil society to urgently pursue dialogue for an early and amicable resolution of this social unrest and maintain the Nigerian image as a bastion of law and order.” The letter read.
