Prague transport authority to check vehicles for presence of coronavirus

Prague’s public transport authority will employ special biosensors and air collection systems on its services with a view to ascertaining the possible presence of the coronavirus. In April it will collect around 500 samples from surfaces and the air on buses, trams and Metro cars and stations, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Experts from the Institute of Physics at the Czech Academy of Sciences will cooperate on the project. The results will be published around the start of June.
