During today, the number of coronavirus patients rose by 15.

“In all regions of the Czech Republic, there is at least one patient with the disease,” Vojtech said.

The disease has a serious course in the Japanese patient in Prostejov, central Moravia, and a taxi driver in the Prague Na Bulovce hospital.

The health condition of an elderly woman in Brno is stable.

“We do not give up the tracking down of the contacts as it still makes sense,” Vojtech said, referring to a WHO recommendation.
