Coronavirus has spread massively among educators and students. That is why it was necessary to close schools, says Prymula – ČT24 – Czech Television

Data obtained by Czech Television from the Minister of Health Roman Prymula (for YES) show that from 5 September to 10 October, the infection grew exponentially, mainly among teachers, up to 4,600 cases. It spread even faster among education workers than among nurses or doctors.

According to the Ministry of Health, pupils and students exceeded the limit of 7,600 by October 10 and accounted for 13 percent of all infected. According to Roman Prymula, the rapid spread in this group was also the main reason why the state first restricted teaching and then closed schools.

According to Prymula, the original measures were not enough. “Certainly, measures were being taken that were of a different nature – they did not go to school closures. We have started negotiating to introduce veils and respirators for teachers precisely so that they do not fall out of the process. If we dominate teachers today in distance learning, the curve should be significantly reduced, “said the Minister.

Prymula wants to meet the deadline for the return of children from the first grade

The Minister of Health stated on Wednesday that the planned date of November 2 for the return of children from the first stage to primary schools must be met. According to him, the closure of schools was necessary because children transmit the disease to families.

“It is a consensus that the main task now is to reduce the number R and the number of infected. Therefore, schools had to be closed. Children transmit the virus to families. I am glad that Robert Plaga came out to meet me with the closure of the primary school. Again, I feel that it is necessary to meet the deadline of November 2 for the return of children to the 1st grade, “wrote Prymula on Twitter.

The Minister of Education Robert Plaga (for YES) admitted on Czech television on Tuesday evening that if the situation did not improve, the children would not have to return to school. Schools, in addition to kindergartens and special schools, are closed from Wednesday and should switch to distance learning.

To return to other schools, Minister Prymula set the reproduction number (R) at 0.8 as a key indicator. The data gives the average number of other infected people who become infected from one positive test. If it is less than 1, the epidemic begins to weaken. According to ministers in the first half of the week, the current value is about 1.5.

In addition to schools, restaurants, bars and clubs have been closed in the Czech Republic as a measure against coronavirus since Wednesday, and people can buy food in the dispensing windows. A maximum of six people can gather. You must also not drink alcohol in a public place.

Prymula on Twitter urged people to stay home on Twitter. Only a drastic reduction in social contacts, he said, will help curb the current onslaught of the epidemic.

Medical attention is limited and proximity shops are extended

Until next Sunday, health centers will only be able to attend emergencies and emergencies. Meanwhile, it was extended until 20, from Monday to Sunday, the hours of attention to the public of the proximity stores that sell food and hygiene products.


he Ministry of Health resolved on Monday of this week to limit until Sunday, October 4, the operation of public and private agencies of the health sector to care for “emergencies, emergencies and care for chronic diseases that must be resolved as soon as possible.”
This determination seems to invalidate the announcement made by the Minister of Health last Sunday, in which it was specified that due to the Preventive and Compulsory Social Isolation stage provided for the provincial capital “those who require hospitalization; scheduled or emergency surgeries will be performed in the private sector “and that until October 4” Health Centers No. 2; No. 4; N ° 6 and N ° 7 “will attend non-respiratory diseases and it will be possible to consult for the vaccination application; the various programs, as well as the delivery of Vitamin D ”.
In that same Resolution, 1339 of September 28, it was decided to extend the hours of attention to the public of the proximity stores that sell food and hygiene products, which until Sunday the 4th are authorized to open from Monday to Sunday between 10:00 and 20:00.
Initially, the Government had allowed them to operate from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00.
The aforementioned Resolution does not specify the reasons that motivated the limitation in routine medical benefits or the extension in the hours of operation of the proximity shops. Needless to say, it is not very understandable why supermarkets were enabled to open their doors from 9:00 am, an hour before the rest of the food and hygiene stores.


Minister Prymula’s first week: He has already implemented these measures and is preparing another one

On Sunday, Prymula let it be heard that we should expect further restrictions during this week. These will mainly affect leisure activities, which should be attended by significantly fewer people.

“We will probably be in the range of ten to twenty. However, there will be differences, for example, for weddings, where there will be about thirty people,” the minister outlined. The ministry could introduce restrictions on Wednesday or Friday.

Listen to what Prymula said on Sunday:

According to Prymula, schools should not be closed, although everything will still be discussed with colleague Robert Plaga YES). There is talk, for example, of the temporary abolition of physical education and music education, because pupils do not wear veils during these classes.

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (YES) appointed Roman Prymula to a new position last Tuesday – just a day after his predecessor Adam Vojtech (for YES) announced that it was ending.

And Prymula certainly did not waste time – the very next day he announced that from Thursday for the next 14 days, all bars, pubs and other catering facilities must be closed between ten o’clock in the evening and six o’clock in the morning. And there can still be as many people in them as there are seats in them.

Similarly, the Minister has tightened up the holding of mass events, such as parties – if their participants have nowhere to sit, a maximum of ten people can participate inside, five times as much in the open air. Complete overview of newly announced measures can be found in this article on TN.cz.

But that was not the case – the minister also called on school principals last week to keep schools closed on Friday due to the spread of coronavirus. However, this appeal was not very successful, according to estimates, it was heard only approximately every tenth primary and secondary school.

You can find out more about “Free Friday” in the report:

However, Prymula did not only target schoolchildren, he also addressed a similar challenge to the rest of the republic. “I want to ask all our fellow citizens to use the rainy extended weekend to stay at home. They read books, watched movies and enjoyed their family,” he wrote on twitter.

But as the staff of TV Nova found out, even these words did not fall on the fertile ground – people went on trips anyway, many were not discouraged by the bad weather.

Meeting more people forbidden! Minister Prymula is preparing further measures

Measures against the spread of coronavirus infection will be extended again next week. Portal novinky.cz said Minister of Health Roman Prymula (for YES).

According to him, it is desirable to limit personal contact between people as much as possible. “As for regular celebrations and parties, I would really appeal for this not to happen. Anyone can refrain from these activities for two or three weeks, and it is likely that there will be a central constraint based on the number of people they can meet. “ the head of the department said.

The package of new regulations will follow the number of people infected on Saturday. If the number is high, more stringent measures can be expected. Prymula also plans to limit weddings, but does not yet know when this will happen. The organizers of balls and dances allegedly asked him to limit him so that their events would be safe.

According to the Minister, it is not possible to rule out any scenario of further development at this time. “If no one followed any precautions and we got on a trajectory with a reproduction number of 2 or more, it is logical that in some time it could reach values ​​that no health system could provide,” he told the portal.

As of Thursday, the measures presented on Wednesday are in force. Pubs, restaurants or bars must close as early as 10 pm. Without a session, a maximum of 10 people can attend mass events indoors, and 50 outside. Outdoor sports and cultural events are limited to 2,000 spectators, indoor with more sectors to 1,000 spectators. The obligation to wear veils in all interior spaces continues.

The Czechia has almost 30,000 active cases, and over 60,000 have been confirmed since the beginning of the epidemic. There are 740 infected in hospitals, 581 people died.

Minister of Health Roman Prymula assessed the development of the epidemic:


Coronavirus | Deputy Minister of Health: As the absolute inmates start to leave, “there may be a second wave”

The former head of the National Institute of Health (INS), an epidemiologist and current deputy minister of the Health portfolio, Luis Suarez Ognio, talked to the newspaper The Republic on the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Suárez assured that the COVID-19 It is transmitted by people who are exposed to the virus, so that, as those who are confined leave their homes, the beginning of a second wave is possible.

“30% of the population is going out to buy and work, the virus He no longer has anyone to infect, but people who have been in absolute confinement in their homes have not been exposed. Then, as this group begins to leave, the transmission chain can return and a second wave can be given “, he said.

Likewise, the vice minister pointed out that, after ruling out the hidroxicloroquina as a treatment for COVID-19, a drug used by the Ministry of Health, another technical document for the treatment of the virus is currently being prepared and is pending approval by the expert committee.

On the other hand, when asked about the update of the number of deaths from coronavirus, Suárez pointed out that currently there are 30 thousand deaths confirmed by COVID-19However, he clarified that the Epidemiological Surveillance System has a record of another 11 thousand deceased who are still in the condition of suspects.

“Every Diresa in the country is looking for the medical records of the deceased. It is not an easy process because the hospitals were full of patients and there was no access to medical records. And on the other hand, we have the Sinadef with 65 thousand death certificates (which says the word COVID-19 within the diagnoses). However, not everyone has proof, these deceased are undergoing an evaluation of each medical history to be able to assess if we can truly classify them as COVID-19. The process of asking each one for evidence has been tedious and we continue to move forward, ”he said.


The Center for Disease Control and Prevention suggested that masks are “more guaranteed” to protect against the coronavirus than a vaccine, citing the possibility that some people may not become immune to the virus after receiving the injection. Why? ANDl Dr. Elmer Huerta explains why its use protects against infections and prevents contagion. In addition, he explained the phenomenon of variolization.
