Czechia to reopen for foreign travel on solstice
Czechia, which has been the Covid-19 worst-hit country in the EU in several moments during the pandemic, continues to ease restrictions, vaccinate its population and open up to foreign travellers, French news agency AFP and British news portal The Guardian report.
The government of PM Andrej Babiš decided this week that arrivals will have to show proof of either vaccination, previous Covid-19 infection or a negative test result.
Prague has also increased capacity on audiences at cultural events to 1,000 indoors and 2,000 outdoors. Meanwhile, in schools, teachers and children will be permitted not to wear masks in most regions of the country.
Earlier in 2019, the country – which to date has 1.66 million confirmed coronavirus cases and 30,164 deaths – had the most deaths and infections per capita. However, numbers have now decreased to under 500 new cases per day, AFP and Reuters report.
