Prymula says more measures needed ahead of special cabinet session Wednesday

The Czech cabinet will hold an extraordinary meeting at 8 am on Wednesday to discuss the situation surrounding the coronavirus in the country. The minister of health, Roman Prymula, said on Tuesday that further measures aimed at curbing the rapid spread of Covid-19 would need to be introduced soon. He said current restrictions were not doing enough to reduce contact among the population.

Mr. Prymula had previously announced that face masks would be required in built-up urban areas, if a distance of two metres cannot be maintained, from Wednesday.
