Medical chamber chief: New minister must demand full lockdown

The head of the Czech Medical Chamber says that the new minister of health needs to insist on a total lockdown to contain the Covid-19 emergency. Speaking to Czech Radio, Milan Kubek said the country’s hospitals were headed for disaster. The doctors’ leader said the government’s bit by bit “salami technique” was not working.

Mr. Kubek said that the Czech Republic should follow Israel’s lead by imposing a full lockdown, adding that the tougher the restrictions the shorter they would need to be in place.
