Czechia: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 23,379

Czechia: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 23,379.

Czechs start stricter lockdown to curb record Covid-19 surge.

See how the Czech​ Republic has tightened lockdown​ measures on Monday, beefing up police presence to restrict movement throughout the country as the government battles the world's worst surge in Covid​-19 infections.

Czech Republic has a population of 10.7 million and about 1.4 million COVID cases to date. The Czech Republic has the highest per capita infection rate in the world. Its death toll of more than 23,000 people is also concerning.

On March 1, Prime Minister Andrej Babis introduced the strictest lockdown so far. People really are banned from travelling within the country, between districts, and cannot visit one another. All retailers, except essential shops such as supermarkets, are closed.

The surge in cases right now is happening. The so-called Kent-variant (first discovered in the UK) is growing in the country. Czech hospitals and the economy are now being pushed to the brink of collapse.

Unfortunately, this country went from having some of the lowest infection rates in Europe to the highest in the world.

The Czech Republic is now in its 4th wave of the pandemic. The healthcare system is reaching its limits.

The COVID-19 pandemic in the Czech Republic is part of the global worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The first 3 confirmed cases in the Czech Republic were reported on 1 March 2020. On 12 March, the government declared a state of emergency, for the first time in the country's modern history for the area of the entire country.

It seems that fear, anger and hopelessness were the most frequent traumatic emotional responses in the general public during the first COVID-19 outbreak in the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic is also known by its short-form name, Czechia. This is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is bordered by Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Poland to the northeast, and Slovakia to the east. The Czech Republic has a hilly landscape that covers an area of 78,866 square kilometers. The country has a mostly temperate continental climate and oceanic climate. It is a unitary parliamentary republic.

In the 19th century, the Czech lands became more industrialized. In 1918, most of it became part of the First Czechoslovak Republic following the collapse of Austria-Hungary after World War I.

The Czech Republic now is a member of NATO, the EU, OECD, OSCE and the CoE.
