The Czech Republic reported 13,231 new COVID-19 cases yesterday, according to the latest data provided by the Czech Health Ministry this morning.

The number of new cases was about 2,500 less than the record-high number reported on Wednesday, and roughly the same amount as the previous Thursday.

Wednesday's tally came after 45,122 tests were performed, leading to a ratio of positive tests of 34.85%, which was also a new high. The number of tests performed on Thursday will be revealed later today.

Also today, Czech Health Minister Jan Blatný is expected to reveal a new plan for the potential easing or tightening of the country's current anti-COVID-19 measures for the coming weeks.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš stated that the plan could include details on the potential reopening of schools and businesses, but the record-high number of new COVID-19 cases reported on Wednesday might alter those intentions.

The number of COVID-19-related deaths in the Czech Republic since March has now reached 4,330, 207 more than yesterday's total. A total of 97 deaths have been attributed to Thursday, with an updated total of 194 on Wednesday and a record-high of 236 on Tuesday.
