The number of people hospitalized with confirmed infection continues to decrease, on Wednesday 744 infected people required hospital care, about 160 fewer compared to the week before. There are 20 patients in serious condition, twice as many a week ago.

The number of newly infected people increased slightly in the week-on-week comparison from Sunday, until Saturday they decreased for ten days in a row.

About 7,500 people got tested on Wednesday. The share of positive results changed only slightly in the week-on-week comparison. In the case of preventive tests, over six percent of samples were positive, in the most numerous diagnostic tests that people with symptoms of the disease undergo, it was 31 percent, and in epidemiological tests, which are done, for example, due to contact with an infected person, a fifth was positive.

The incidence number, which indicates the number of newly confirmed cases of infection with the coronavirus over the past seven days per hundred thousand inhabitants, stood at 102 on the second day. The highest is in the Hradec Králové region with 117 cases and the lowest in the Karlovy Vary region with 83 cases.

Since the start of the epidemic in March 2020, more than 4.04 million cases of coronavirus infection have been confirmed in the Czech Republic. This number does not include cases where someone has been infected repeatedly. Suspected re-infection is about 307,700. During the entire period of the epidemic, 40,829 people with confirmed infection died.

About 6.89 million people were fully vaccinated against covid-19 in the Czech Republic. Almost 4.3 million people received the first booster dose, and over 162,000 received the second. On Wednesday, 5,552 people were vaccinated, about a thousand fewer than a week ago

The question is how the beginning of the school year will be reflected in the numbers. This year, unlike the previous two years, there will be no regulations against the covid-19 epidemic. The Ministry of Health claims that measures are not necessary in the current situation, and wants to monitor developments.
