Minister: No new draconian measures to curb Covid

The Czech minister of health, Vlastimil Válek, says the government is ready for a fresh wave of Covid-19 in the autumn but will not introduce any draconian measures to curb the spread of the virus. Mr. Válek made the comment on Monday at a presentation of the latest Czech vaccination strategy, which bears the slogan Let's vaccinate for a life without fear.

People in Czechia may register for a further booster vaccination against Covid-19 from Monday. While doctors have been administering such jabs since the middle of last month, registration in advance has not been possible until now.
