“If we don’t all act responsibly, unfortunately it will be restaurants, clubs and bars that will be closed again,” Blatný threatened on Friday.
The Czechs attacked open companies in several places, and police had to deal with a number of crimes against measures to increase coronaviruses on Saturday night. Police spokeswoman Kateřina Rendlová did not specify how many such trips were made and exactly how the measures were violated.
Jan Blatný: Massive irresponsibility. According to @jan_svejdar he was leaving @PolicieCZ to restaurants and clubs that are repeatedly opened illegally at night. Despite receiving warnings, the companies were not closed and remained open until morning. I will demand large fines in the order of millions of crowns.

More specifically, the minister on Saturday cited information from the police president. According to him, the police went to the companies that were open from 10pm on Saturday night, despite the ban.
“Massive irresponsibility is completely unacceptable,” Blatný called on the Czechs. And they had to remember his words. The police did not have to deal with a serious offense by Sunday night, it was reported Sunday morning via a Twitter account.
On Saturday night we did not notice any more serious problems related to non-compliance with government regulations. We thank the operators for respecting the closing hours of restaurants and bars and for the enthusiasm given to the visitors. #policepp

“We thank the operators for respecting the closing hours of restaurants, bars and visitors,” the police added, and the minister himself called for tightening controls and imposing fines on the upper border, i.e. millions of kronor, for operators who open from 10am.
I don’t want to be scared, but …
Blatný repeatedly states that the current situation is fragile. “I don’t want to be scared, but we’re still on the border between third and fourth grade. Do we really want to go back to ‘flat’?” He asks.
It’s always good to know how things really are. There is no massive violation of the rules, as Minister Blatný claimed yesterday. https://t.co/DBZ8W2ynb7

It is mainly based on the PES system, in which the risk score is calculated on a scale between zero and one hundred. In recent days, the Czech Republic has seen a value approaching the 60-year mark.
PES degrees on a point scale
However, it is still not exactly how the Czech Republic is today. The Ministry of Health’s website, where the PES index is published, has been affected by technical issues and the originally published Saturday numbers will change over the course of Sunday. There were also problems publishing information on Saturday.
