Number of coronavirus deaths doubled in November: Czech health ministry
PRAGUE (CZECH REPUBLIC) – The Czech Republic’s health ministry data showed on Saturday that the number of coronavirus fatalities in the country doubled in November and crossed the 7,000 mark.
Recorded fatalities reached 7,021 as of Saturday, compared with the 3,523 recorded by the end of October, according to the figures.
The country, one of the worst hit in Europe by the pandemic, has seen a fall in the number of new cases and hospitalised patients in recent weeks, allowing the government to ease some curbs.
The health ministry reported 5,809 new cases for Nov. 20, less than a half the peak numbers seen at the turn of October and November.
The number of hospitalisations dropped to 6,307 compared with a peak of 8,283 recorded on Nov. 6.
