PRAGUE (Reuters) - Czechs raised glasses in pubs, grabbed lunch again at restaurants and hit the shops for the first time since October on Thursday as coronavirus measures were eased before the Christmas season. 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 coronavirus pandemic has stress-tested the entire US healthcare system, particularly in how scientists figure out whether or not experimental drugs help the sick. And the leader of the research arm of New York's largest healthcare provider said it's time to rethink the clinical trial system, as well as the federal government's funding priorities in supporting research. He called for a level of national coordination on clinical trials going forward that can prioritize drugs to test and lead these trials to their completion. 'We have to confront this'"You have to do randomized clinical trials that go all the way to the end with appropriate controls," Tracey said. It's fueled a new crop of startups like Science 37, which hope to make trials faster and more effective.

A Christmas tree is illuminated as the traditional Christmas market has been cancelled at the Old Town Square in Prague due to COVID-19 concerns, Czech Republic, November 28, 2020. REUTERS/David W CernyPRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech government will allow restaurants and non-essential shops to reopen on Thursday, Dec. 3, as a wave of coronavirus infections eases, Health Mister Jan Blatny said on Sunday. 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.

‘Zappa’ Review: Portrait of a Rock Star and a Nation’s Hero
  + stars: | 2020-11-26 | by ( Glenn Kenny | ) www.nytimes.com + 1.00   time to read: 1 min
This documentary directed by Alex Winter opens with a portrait of the ostensibly outrageous musician Frank Zappa in a moment of nobility. It is footage shot in Prague in 1991, two years before Zappa’s death from cancer at the age of 52. Zappa, whose work was one of the cultural inspirations for the future Czech Republic’s Velvet Revolution, became a latter-day national hero there. So on this occasion, which would be the last time he played guitar in public, the perfectionist musician consented to perform with an unrehearsed pickup band, to celebrate the withdrawal of Russian troops from the region. Of the new country his audience will bring into being, Zappa says, “Keep it unique.”

Trump should quit and 'not be embarrassing', Czech president says
  + stars: | 2020-11-19 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.92   time to read: +1 min
Slideshow ( 2 images )PRAGUE (Reuters) - Donald Trump would be wiser to acknowledge losing the U.S. presidential election and quit, Czech President Milos Zeman, an early Trump supporter, said on Thursday. “I personally believe that it would be much more reasonable to give up, not to be embarrassing, and allow the new president to take office,” he said. Trump has refused to accept the victory of Democrat challenger Joe Biden, syaing the Nov. 3 election was rigged. Zeman, 76, is a towering figure in Czech post-communist politics, having served as prime minister and won two presidential elections. Zeman has shared Trump’s initial warm approach to Russia, tough stance on immigration or support for Israeli government policies.

PRAGUE (Reuters) - Nearly half of Slovakia’s entire population took COVID-19 swabs on Saturday, the first day of two-day nationwide testing the government hopes will help reverse a fast rise in infections without a hard lockdown. Defence Minister Jaroslav Nad said on Sunday 2.58 million Slovaks took the test on Saturday, and 25,850 or 1% tested positive and must go into quarantine. The European Union country has 5.5 million people and aims to test as many as possible, except for children under 10. The government plans a second round of the testing next weekend to catch cases missed in the first round or those who got infected in the meantime. On Sunday, Slovakia reported 2,282 new cases through PCR tests, putting the total at 59,946, without those identified in the nationwide scheme, and 219 deaths to date.

Should There Be Permanent Sites for the Summer and Winter Olympics?
  + stars: | 2020-10-28 | by ( ) www.wsj.com   time to read: +1 min
It isn’t easy to host an Olympics, and over the years it has only gotten harder. And more controversy about the impact on the lives of host cities’ residents—particularly those who are displaced to make room for the Games. One solution that has been suggested is to hold the Games at a permanent site or sites—most likely one site for Summer Games and another for Winter Games. Proponents argue that permanent sites would be more efficient and spare cities around the world a host of troubles. Woods Professor of Economics at Smith College, argues that the Olympics should have one permanent summer and one permanent winter location.
