Coronavirus Infections in the Czech Republic Have Started to Decline

November 9, 2020

PRAGUE — Coronavirus infections in the Czech Republic have started to decline after a two-month rise to record high levels, thanks to a series of new coronavirus restrictions.

The Health Ministry says the day-to-day increase of the new confirmed cases dropped to 3,608 on Sunday, the lowest since Oct 11. A lower number of tests is usually carried out over the weekends but the number who tested positive dropped by almost 3,000 compared with the previous Sunday.

The confirmed cases reached a record daily high of 15,727 cases on Wednesday and has been declining since.

In another promising sign, the number of hospitalized dropped by some 500 to 7,779.

The Czech Republic has had 414,828 test positive while 4,858 have died.

The seven-day rolling average of daily new cases did not increase over the past two weeks, going from 112.34 new cases per 100,000 people on Oct. 25 to 97.63 new cases per 100,000 people on Sunday.
