Coronavirus Cases in the Czech Republic Have Hit a New Record High

September 18, 2020

PRAGUE – Confirmed coronavirus cases in the Czech Republic have hit a new record high for the third straight day and surpassed 3,000 reported cases in 24 hours for the first time.

The Health Ministry said 3,130 people tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, almost 1,000 more than the previous record set a day earlier.

That day-to-day increase was almost as high as the number of all cases the country reported in March, during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Czech capital of Prague was the hardest hit with 191 infections per 100,000 residents.

The Czech Republic has had a total of 44,155 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 489 deaths.
