Czech health minister says country now in a position to help others

Health Minister Jan Blatný will propose that the Czech Republic should offer to take in patients from neighbour states now that the pressure on Czech hospitals has alleviated and the country appears to be over the worst. The health minister said on Twitter that at the present time the Czech Republic currently has about 50 vacant beds designated for patients with COVID-19. At the height of the crisis the Czech Republic asked Germany, Poland and Switzerland for help in treating patients. In the end only one patient was actually transported for treatment abroad.
