The Czech Minister of Health, Roman Primula warned that the government could tighten more and impose more stringent measures because people do not adhere much to the government measures that were approved to limit the spread of the Corona virus, which weakens the effectiveness of these measures.

 

Primula added in an interview with the representatives of the Czech Parliament that, "there is no proper social distancing and therefore it would be logical to present to the government new proposals to tighten these measures,  saying that the second wave of the pandemic may reach its climax around November 11th”.

It is noteworthy that the current number of people infected with the virus in the Czech Republic is 111528 people, while the number of deaths reached 1,600.
