Prague – The risk score for the anti-PES epidemic system has risen by seven points to 64, which is the fourth sharpest alert level. The deterioration of the situation led to an increase in the number of reproductions by more than one and an increase in the proportion of positive cases. The index was up 57 percentage points from the previous thirteen days. The ministry did not submit the current data on the website until noon because the system had previously had a network outage.
If the PES index falls into a lower or higher band, this will not automatically lead to a change in measurement. To improve, they must be in the lower band for seven days, with three days of deterioration.
The reproduction number representing the average number of others infected by a positive test is 1.02. Lately, almost a quarter of all tests performed have been positive.
Based on the government’s decision, the entire country has been operating under third-degree rules since Thursday, allowing shops with limited capacity to open shops, restaurants, hotels or service establishments. However, Health Minister Jan Blatný (BAI) said the situation was fragile and did not rule out the possibility that the measures could be tightened again.
“The increase in the risk index from 57 to the current 64 points is due to two factors: the relative share of positive cases has increased and, above all, the number of reproductions has increased from one to another.
The Ministry of Health also updated the data on the number of infected on Saturday, following a network outage. There were 3308 more hidden cases, which is 641 more than a week ago. This is the smallest daily hike this week, but less tested on weekends and increases on days off are always significantly reduced. There are currently more than 60,000 people in the country, of whom 4,436 were in hospital according to the latest data. 8838 people have been killed so far with hiding.
