In the Czech Republic, a lockdown is introduced for the unvaccinated from COVID-19

From Monday, November 22, a lockdown is introduced in the Czech Republic for citizens who have not been vaccinated against coronavirus or have not had COVID-19, reports TASS.

This decision was made by the authorities of the republic in connection with a sharp deterioration in the epidemiological situation and the increased burden on the country’s health care system.

November 18, acting Prime Minister of the Republic Andrei Babish said that from Monday, only citizens vaccinated or ill with COVID-19 will have access to restaurants, museums, service providers and other public places. Lockdown, according to the politician, could last until the end of February 2022.

At the same time, regular testing of students for COVID-19 will be carried out in schools in the country. Businesses and local companies will also be required to test abandoning employees. The costs of this will be reimbursed from the state budget.

In addition, the Czech government recommended that institutions transfer the maximum number of their employees to remote work.

Note that since the beginning of the pandemic in the Czech Republic, 1,995,291 cases of coronavirus infection have been identified, 32,079 patients have died.

Earlier it was reported that a lockdown for the unvaccinated from COVID-19 from November 15 was also introduced by Austria. Unvaccinated people are allowed to leave their homes only to work, to the supermarket, pharmacy and to help those in need.
