Ministry to publish daily map of coronavirus risk spots

From Wednesday the Czech Ministry of Health will publish a daily updated map of the country showing the relative risk of Covid-19 in each district. The map will take into account rises in newly detected coronavirus cases, hospitalisation and other trends over the previous day and week.

National health statistics chief Ladislav Dušek said that a “risk score” would rate districts from zero to 10. Districts with no known occurrence of Covid-19 will get a zero rating on the map while those rated nine or 10 will be considered highest risk.

In addition, the number of freshly discovered cases will only be published once daily.
