Prymula: CR experiencing second Covid wave

The Czech Republic is experiencing a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, says the government’s commissioner for science and medical research, Roman Prymula. Speaking on Czech Television on Sunday, Mr. Pyrula said that within two or three weeks the number of Covid-19 patients in hospital would reach the same level as was seen in the spring, when the pandemic first hit the country.

The epidemiologist said that if the virus continued to spread as explosively as it has recently, Czech hospitals’ ability to deal with Covid patients could be exceeded; if measures were not taken, hospitals could reach the limits of their capacity at the end of October, he said.
