People carrying shopping bags walk on a street, as restrictions ease following the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in Prague, Czech Republic, December 3, 2020. “It is certainly a huge benefit and I think it adds to the Christmas atmosphere that people can enjoy the shops again,” said Marcela Judlova after shopping on Prague’s central Wenceslas Square. ** For an interactive graphic: tmsnrt.rs/36AWTYPSlideshow ( 4 images )(GRAPHIC: The pandemic in the Czech Republic and its neighbours - )Czech media reported scattered lines of customers outside shops and hairdressers around the country. ** For interactive graphic: tmsnrt.rs/3mBkwWI(GRAPHIC: Czech Republic: daily COVID-19 cases - )

The country will move down one notch to level 3 on its 5-level coronavirus risk scale, which means all shops and restaurants can open but must limit customer numbers to allow for social distancing. “The shorter the period stores are open before Christmas, the higher the concentration of people would be in shops,” he told a news conference. The daily number of new cases dropped below 5,000 in six out of the past seven days.
