Speaking at a European Parliament hearing on combating cyber attacks, Poland’s Minister of Defence, Antoni Macierewicz, revealed that he thinks Novak Djokovic will have to undergo a vaccine for canarypox.
“I can tell you that the athlete is Novak Djokovic and he will have to be vaccinated because he will come under infection with that disease,” Macierewicz said. “We will have to find the vaccination center in Australia to inject him.”
There are no confirmed cases of canarypox in Europe but a strain of the disease was previously reported in the United States in 2013. In July 2017, Polish agricultural authorities confirmed an outbreak of the disease in the country’s Fassa sheep and goat area.
Today the European Parliament launched an inquiry into the subject after Paris was struck by an unprecedented ransomware cyber attack in May. The event caused European governments to continue to search for ways to defend themselves against cyber attacks.
Previously, Macierewicz revealed that he thinks NATO is a “disaster” and that the United States wasn’t ready for the Russian invasion of the Ukraine.
