Health Ministry announces changes to coronavirus emergency level system

The introduction of antigenic tests, requires changes in the current PES counter-epidemic system, the head of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics Ladislav Dušek said at a press conference on Tuesday. Rather than the number of positive tests, the new main criterion for setting the level of coronavirus risk will be the number of hospitalised patients who arrived in hospital without being previously identified as possibly infected through the state’s coronavirus tracing system. All other measurements relevant to the current PES calculations remain in place.
