Thus, on November 17, it registered 805.9 covid positive cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants and 1,376.9 new cases per 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants.
Only about 60 percent of those trained still call on Prague hygienists, half of whom react aggressively.
“There are about 300,000 unvaccinated people over the age of 18 in Prague who have not suffered covid. About a third of Prague residents are 10 times more likely to be hospitalized and 11 times more likely to die from an infection. I would therefore like to call once again on Praguers to register for vaccinations so that they do not have to wait in lines and reduce risky infections as much as possible. The capacity of vaccination points in Prague is more than sufficient, in addition, practitioners and mobile teams are also vaccinated. I believe that the continuation of our campaign will also contribute to higher vaccination coverage. They will find everything they need on the ockovani.praha.eu website, “said the mayor of the capital city of Prague, Zdeněk Hřib.
