As of Tuesday, the Czech Republic will let in vaccinated visitors from Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Austria, and Germany, as well as Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.
Vaccination certificates from the seven countries listed above will be recognized in the Czech Republic, allowing their holders to enjoy the services available to the public in the country, he added.
Moreover, people who have received a first coronavirus vaccine dose in the Czech Republic at least three weeks prior to this Monday can enter seven countries with which Prague has concluded an agreement: Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia.
Croatia should join the list too, but the deal has yet to be finalized, the foreign ministry said.
As of Friday morning, the seven-day number of reported cases per 100,000 dropped to 34. Earlier this year, the Czech Republic had one of the highest per capita COVID-19 infection and death rates in the world.
Czech Republic applied the COVID vaccine doses to more than 100,000 people a day both on Wednesday and Thursday, PM Andrej Babis wrote on Twitter today.
This makes Wednesday hit so far record high since Czechia started inoculating against COVID-19 in late December, the Health Ministry’s data show.
The Czech Republic has distributed 5 million doses of vaccines in total so far, and 1.37 million people have now received two doses.
