Czechs Have Rallied in Prague to Protest Against COVID Restrictions

October 28, 2020

PRAGUE — Some Czechs have rallied in Prague to protest the restrictive measures imposed by the government, a day after the nation hit a record 15,663 coronavirus cases.

On Wednesday, a nationwide night curfew will begin and all stores will close on Sundays.

Gatherings of more than two people are banned if not from the same family. However, up to 100 people can still demonstrate if they are divided into separate groups of 20 and all wear face masks.

After some 100 gathered at the Republic Square, police sealed off the crowd. Others who wanted to join the protest had to remain beyond the police cordon.

Some of the protesters were not wearing face masks. One person was detained.

The Czech Republic has 284,033 confirmed cases, with over a half registered in the last two weeks. There’s been more than 2,500 deaths.
