Coronavirus: The Czech Republic has introduced strict quarantine

The countries of the European Union are gradually returning to the tough epidemiological measures that were in effect six months ago — after Ireland, where restrictions were again imposed from today, the Czech Republic announced quarantine.

This was announced on October 21 by the Minister of Health of the country Roman Primula.

So, due to COVID-19 from October 22 to November 3, the country will operate a nationwide regime of restrictions on movement.

Residents of the country will be able to leave their homes only in urgent cases — to get to work, to buy essential goods in a store, or to a doctor. Exceptions are walks in nature, but with the observance of social distance — in public places and on the street it is forbidden to be without a mask.

Czechs are also urged to reduce the number of social contacts to the “necessary minimum”.

In addition, the authorities have banned all shops, except those that sell essential goods, and restaurants and cafes will only sell food to go.

It is worth noting that on this day in the Czech Republic a new “record” was reported — on October 20, 11,984 people were confirmed to have coronavirus. This is the absolute maximum since the beginning of the spread of the infection. In general, there are almost 194 thousand cases of infection in the country.

However, not everyone agrees with the return of restrictions — last weekend in Prague, several thousand people went to a protest against quarantine.

New COVID-19 anti-record fixed in the Czech Republic

During the day in the country, almost 4.5 thousand cases of coronavirus were revealed, while the previous mark was almost 700 cases less.

The day before, 4,457 new cases of coronavirus were registered in the Czech Republic — a record increase since the beginning of the epidemic in the country. It was reported by Ceske Noviny on Wednesday, October 7.

At the same time, the new indicator of infections exceeds the previous anti record by almost 700 cases.

In total, since the beginning of the epidemic in the Czech Republic, more than 90 thousand cases of infection with coronavirus have been revealed.

On the eve of the epidemic, 13 people died of COVID-19, in total 794 people died since the beginning of the epidemic.

There are now more than 40 thousand active cases of coronavirus in the Czech Republic. Most of the disease has a mild course, 3.8% of those infected are in hospitals.

We would like to remind you that earlier in the Czech Republic an emergency regime was introduced. This year, the emergency regime was already in force in the Czech Republic from March 12 to May 17.

In the Czech Republic — record mortality from COVID-19

Against the background of increasing morbidity in the country, new measures to combat the spread of coronavirus of a new type came into force, as well as increased penalties for their violations.

In the Czech Republic, 19 patients died last 24 hours from a new type of coronavirus infection. This is the highest death rate in the country since the pandemic. This was reported by the Czech Ministry of Health on Thursday, September 24.

“The number of seriously ill people in the country has increased five times since the end of August — up to 120 people, only by 18.00 on Thursday the number of patients is 28 933, 670 of whom are hospitalized. A total of 567 people died during the pandemic,” the statement said.

Because of the growing number of infected and seriously ill people, stricter preventive measures have been introduced in the country since Thursday to spread coronavirus.

In particular, police have begun to detain people without masks in the subway and land transport. The penalty for this is 10 thousand crowns (about 435 dollars).

In addition, according to the agency, a 32-year-old resident of Novy Jicin was sentenced to three years of suspended imprisonment for knowing that she was ill with COVID-19, using public transport, and visiting a store without wearing a mask on her face.

The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said Thursday it ranked the Czech Republic among the seven countries with the fastest-growing coronavirus epidemic. In addition to the Czech Republic, this list also includes Spain, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Hungary.
