Health Ministry launches COVID-19 regional risk map

The Ministry of Health has launched a new webpage which updates the level of risk in individual regions of the Czech Republic on a daily basis. The estimates are made on the bases of growth in cases, hospitalisation levels and other trends over the past weeks. In case of a marked increase of risk in a specific region, the wearing of facemasks will again become compulsory.

Six colours, from white to black, indicate the stage of risk in which a region finds itself. Currently the map shows either none, or only low levels of new coronavirus cases across all regions with the exception of the far eastern tip of the country on the border with Poland’s Silesian Voivodship.

The webpage can be accessed here:
