Prague, March 24 – The Czech Republic had 1,287 confirmed coronavirus cases at midnight and during Monday, 126 new cases occurred, Health Minister Adam Vojtech told journalists today.

Tests were made on 19,600 people.

On Monday, the seventh patient was cured of the COVID-19 disease.

The Czech Republic has only one victim. On Sunday evening, a man, 95, died from the disease, but he also suffered from other health problems.

A week ago, the Czech Republic was the fourth European country after Italy, Spain and Austria to have limited the free movement of people due to the coronavirus spread.

A few days later, the ban on going out without mouth and nose cover followed. On Wednesday, the government approved the duty to wear a face mask, respirator, shawl or scarf.

The government prolonged limitation of the free movement of people across the Czech Republic until April 1.

All other restrictive measures were prolonged until this day by the government yesterday, too.
