Czech Rep., Oct 10 (BD) – The Ministry of Health updated the traffic light system used to monitor the spread of coronavirus in the Czech Republic on Friday. Five regions have been marked “red”; nine are “orange” now.
Red regions are Prague, Stredocesky, Jihomoravsky, Zlinsky, and Kralovehradecky.
“Orange” means incipient community-based transmission; “red” means increasing or persistent community-based transmission.
Due to the rapidly increasing numbers of positive tests for coronavirus and the fast-growing number of serious cases of the disease, the new Health Minister Roman Prymula announced a significant tightening of current anti-epidemic measures on Thursday (“New Measures At A Glance: Government To Curb Sporting and Cultural Activities, Social Contacts“).
If the new measures do not work, Prime Minister Andrej Babis has not ruled out a complete lockdown.
