Covid infections continue slight drop, reproduction rate still below 1

Laboratories in the Czech Republic confirmed 235 new cases of Covid-19 on Wednesday, about 25 fewer than on the same day a week ago. The daily incidence thus fell slightly for a fourth consecutive day. The reproductive number has also remained below since Sunday.

The virus, in particular the Delta variant, is spreading to a greater extent in Prague and the Pilsen region, with the lowest number of new infections reported by the Ústí nad Labem and Zlín regions.

The Central Crisis Committee on Wednesday evaluated the anti-pandemic measures as sufficient, although he stressed the importance of staying vigilant.
