Laboratories in the Czech Republic on Sunday confirmed 381 new cases of COVID-19. This was the lowest daily gain since last August. However, on weekends, infections are usually lower because fewer people are being tested. On Sunday, paramedics vaccinated 24,819 people against the coronavirus, which is about 4,000 more than a week ago.
Among other things, vaccination against coronavirus should help control the epidemic. Currently, 3,654,376 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the Czech Republic, and 1.058 million people are fully vaccinated. Paramedics vaccinated more than 30,000 people on Saturday and nearly 25,000 on Sunday. Compared to last weekend, the number of vaccinated people has increased.
