Slovakia to pass law to use telecom data to monitor quarantine-PM

BRATISLAVA, March 24 (Reuters) - The Slovak government will approve a law allowing state institutions to use data from telecommunications operators to ensure people in quarantine due to the coronavirus outbreak remain isolated, Prime Minister Igor Matovic said on Tuesday.

The government plans to discuss the measure on Tuesday before speeding it through parliament, Matovic said. Slovakia has quarantined travellers returning from abroad and those in contact with people infected with the new coronavirus.
