The districts of Prague-East and Prague-West are newly red at the so-called traffic light, the remaining Central Bohemian districts are orange. The red color indicates the highest risk of coronavirus infection, Prague and the new Uherské Hradiště region are also marked. At present, covid-19 is spreading in the district around Prague in the community, a spokeswoman for the regional hygiene station, Dana Šalamunová, told ČTK. However, according to her, hygienists do not plan to introduce other measures beyond what has already been taken.
“The reason is that Prague-East and Prague-West are in close proximity to Prague, there is really a great connection with the fact that people go to Prague for work, school, entertainment and for a long time we unfortunately see an increase in cases which cannot find a source, so it is already a community transmission, “said Šalamunová.
The number of hospitalized has increased. The hospital treats 1,028 patients with covid
