Coronavirus latest: Germany ready to help revitalize Europe-Slovakia romani People

Slovakia has lifted a quarantine on one of five Roma settlements locked down in
early April to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The country's closed off the settlements on April 9 after reports of a cluster of coronavirus cases.
Prime Minister Igor Matovic praised the settlement's residents for their discipline. "Today, an ordinary Roma settlement of Bystrany becomes an example for the whole of Slovakia. The people here were responsible," Matovic said.

Roma communities across eastern Europe are impoverished, plagued by high unemployment and historically the target of discrimination, and the coronavirus outbreak has many feeling more vulnerable.
