In the Czech Republic, 305 new cases of infection with Covid-19 were detected on Sunday, the highest number registered since April.
Czech Health Minister Adam Vojteh said today that a second wave of infections had not started in the country, noting that the increase in the number of cases was due to a local outbreak in the Moravian-Silesian region.
The minister said that mass testing of Covid-19 was taking place in the area among the employees of the mining company OKD.
On Saturday, the Czech Republic reported 260 new cases of infection.
While in the rest of the Czech Republic the restrictions imposed in the fight against the pandemic are eased, in the Moravian-Silesian region the restrictions have been strengthened. No more than 100 people are allowed to gather there and the requirement to wear face masks will remain in place in public places, although in most parts of the country this requirement will be abolished from 1 July.
The Ministry of Health says the situation in the capital, Prague, is stable.
More than 11,000 infections and 348 deaths due to Covid-19 have been reported in the Czech Republic.
