Czechs struggling with record COVID-19 spike

PRAGUE: The Czech Republic is struggling to stem a massive spike in coronavirus infections after clocking a record daily rate of infection on par with neighbouring Germany, which has a population that is eight times larger.
The EU country of 10.7 million people reported on Thursday that it had confirmed 2,139 cases over the last 24 hours.
Ladislav Dusek, head of the Czech Institute of Health Information and Statistics, said the epidemic was no longer spreading within closed clusters.
“We are facing a big risk of an exponential spread,” Dusek said. (AFP)
