Corona Virus: The Czech government approved new measures against the Corona virus

On Friday, the Czech government approved a package of new measures against the spread of the coronavirus. In events with 1,000 or more participants, at home or abroad, it will not be possible to prove this with a negative antigen test, but only with a negative PCR test or evidence of vaccination or overcoming COVID-19. Submissions will take place from November 22, irozhlas.cz reported.

From December, proof of infection will be required when purchasing ski passes. Health Minister Adam Vojtek said that mountain dwellers will have to maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres.

From November 22, a PCR test no older than 72 hours and an antigen test up to 24 hours old will be required in social services homes. Unvaccinated staff at these facilities will need to continue testing at least once a week. Health insurance companies will continue to pay for the tests.

New vaccination campaign

According to Novinky.cz, the ministry plans to launch a new campaign to support vaccination from next week, which Prime Minister Andrej Babis called “brutal”.

“It will be a campaign, says the prime minister, brutal, but also realistic, so that people know what it looks like in hospitals. So that people know what it looks like for patients who have not been vaccinated and end up in intensive care units.”

Almost 70 percent of Czechs are currently vaccinated.

131 deaths

Since the beginning of November, there have been 131 deaths in the Czech Republic, an average of 33 deaths per day. According to statistics, the elderly die in particular – they are vaccinated and not vaccinated, although the average lifespan of the unvaccinated is slightly lower. On Thursday, 18 people infected with the vaccine and nine unvaccinated patients with the Corona virus died, and the previous day the percentage was reversed.

On Thursday, 8,419 people were infected, fewer than in previous days, but half of what it was a week ago – but then it was a public holiday.

The number of hospitalizations has also increased, and now nearly 2,500 of them are in hospitals with Covid, which is also the highest since May.
