PRAGUE, June 15 (Xinhua) — The Czech Republic has now confirmed over 10,000 cases of COVID-19, though the spread of the disease has significantly slowed down, the country’s Ministry of Health said on Monday.
The ministry said that 33 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the country on Sunday, bringing the total number of infections to 10,024. Meanwhile, 7,226 patients have recovered and 329 have died.
Also on Monday, the Czech authorities relaxed the COVID-19 restrictions further.
As of June 15, face masks are no longer mandatory outdoors, only in indoor spaces and on public transport.
Farmers’ markets can reopen, restaurants can offer cold buffets, and saunas and swimming pools with a recirculation system can welcome guests again. Cinemas and theaters can serve refreshments, but these still can’t be consumed on the premises.
Outdoor events can now be attended by a maximum of 2,500 people, but the organizers must separate the crowd into 500-strong groups. The wearing of face masks remains mandatory. Enditem
