In the Czech Republic, the increase in the number of cases of covid-19 further accelerated on Saturday. 5118 more were added, which is about 300 more than on the previous Saturday. This follows from data on the website of the Ministry of Health. However, the share of newly infected in the number of tests performed is slightly lower than a week ago. It was 33.2 percent then, 31.6 percent this Saturday. The number of hospitalized people also decreased, at least on Saturday from 27 December.
According to ministry statistics, there are now 5,456 people with covid-19 in hospitals. Their number has been declining since Monday, when there were 6,153. However, the number of patients in a serious condition has not changed significantly, currently there are 1,086. Hospitals in the Czech Republic are currently overloaded due to the epidemic.
The free capacity of beds for patients with covid-19 in hospitals in the Czech Republic has been gradually declining since last autumn, despite occasional fluctuations. According to the Ministry of Health, 17 percent of beds in ARO and intensive care units (ICUs) and 29 percent of standard beds with oxygen were available on Sunday morning. For example, only about a third of the devices for artificial lung ventilation were free.
In some individual regions, the situation is even worse. For example, in Prague and the Karlovy Vary region, only six percent of beds are available in the ARO and ICU. In addition, the Karlovy Vary region also has only about a tenth of the devices for artificial lung ventilation and standard beds with oxygen available. One tenth of free capacity is standard oxygen beds in the Hradec Králové region.
It is in the Hradec Králové and Karlovy Vary regions that the districts with the largest spread of covid-19 are of all the regions of the Czech Republic. The largest number of cases of the disease in the country was recorded in the past seven days in the Trutnov region in the Hradec Králové region, 1279 per 100 thousand inhabitants. More than 1,100 people were infected in the Cheb and Sokolovská regions in the Karlovy Vary region. The government closed these three districts in quarantine on Friday due to the spread of the disease. On the contrary, the Vsetín region had the least new cases in the past week in the Zlín Region, where only about 186 infected people per 100,000 inhabitants increased.
Since March 1, when the first coronavirus infections were recorded in the Czech Republic, approximately 1.09 million cases of covid-19 have been confirmed. During the entire epidemic, 18,143 people died with covid-19. The daily number of infected deaths is usually around 120.
It has been vaccinated against coronavirus in the Czech Republic since 27 December. So far, over 448 thousand doses of vaccines have been given by Saturday evening, and almost 162,000 people have received both required doses. On Saturday, paramedics administered about 3,800 doses of vaccine, which is about 700 more than a week ago. About 2,500 people received the second dose of the vaccine on Saturday.
