Nearly, 2000 residents of the Czech capital Prague came down to the streets, demonstrating against the new COVID-19 restrictions enforced by the government. Reportedly, Europe is the epicenter of the deadly virus.
With the government enforcing new restrictions to battle the virus, many regions in the continent are witnessing regular protests. Protestors in Prague, who are mostly without a face mask, demanded the government to relax ban gatherings, suspend limited hours for bars and permit unvaccinated people to participate in events.
This development follows after the government had enforced a 30-day state of emergency, in accordance with which a ban was enforced on Christmas markets across the country. Police took action as protestors got out of control. The protestors waved national flags and carried signboards written, “Get vaccinated? Over your dead bodies.”
In the last few days, Czech hospitals have limited operations as the number of patients with COVID-19 has doubled. As yet, only 58.5 percent of Czechs are vaccinated against COVID-19. Prime Minister Petr Fiala demanded people get vaccinated and protect themselves from the virus.
According to reports, Europe continues to report a wave of coronavirus cases with the countries struggling to fight against the deadly COVID-19.
