Number of Covid-19 cases slowly but steadily dropping

The Czech Republic registered 5,199 new cases of Covid-19 on Saturday, roughly a third of the number registered on the same day a week ago.

The number of hospitalized has dropped to 6,473, down from 7,000 several days ago, but the number of patients in a serious condition remains the same at 1,100.

The number of infected seniors aged over 65 has also been dropping, which is seen as significant.

The Czech Republic remains on the fourth level of the five-tier counter epidemic system PES, with a risk index of 70 percent.
