Mayors to get regular information on Covid-19 numbers in their municipality

The head of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics Ladislav Dušek has said he will propose to the Health Ministry that the mayors of municipalities receive data on the number of patients with Covid-19 in their district once a week. Mr. Dušek responded to an appeal from the Union of Towns and Municipalities for regular information on the number of infected on the territory of individual municipalities.

According to the union, mayors lack information on the situation in their municipality at any given time and depend on whatever information they can find in the media or ask to get it from their regional hygiene office.
