The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic saw its first three confirmed cases in the Czech Republic on 1 March 2020. On 12 March, the government declared a state of emergency, for the first time in the country's modern history for the area of the entire country. On 16 March, the country closed its borders, forbade the entry of foreigners and issued a nationwide curfew. While originally planned until 24 March, the measures were later extended until 1 April[2][3] and then again until 12 April.[4]

A patient in middle age at Bulovka Hospital is incubated in an intensive care unit - the first case in serious condition. Also 84-year senior in University Hospital Brno [cs] was announced to be in the same condition, but the head doctor from Brno hospital denied it.

The deputy of the minister of health said any travel by Czech citizens is undesirable, and that if the spreading continues to speed up, public transport may be limited and the Czech Republic may close its borders.[24]

12 March[edit]

Westfield Chodov, one of the largest shopping centres in the country with most of the shops closed, according to the state policies

The first cases in the South Bohemian Region, Karlovy Vary Region and Liberec Region. In total the disease has been confirmed in all 14 regions of Czech Republic, most of them (50) is in Prague.[25]

The Czech government has declared a state of emergency for 30 days.[26][27] Pubs and restaurants will be closed from 8 pm to 6 am, while swimming pools and other sports facilities, clubs, galleries and libraries will be closed completely. Public events with more than 30 people will be prohibited. A special regime will be introduced on the borders with Austria and Germany, people will only be able to enter or leave the Czech territory via 11 border crossings[28] using cars, as international bus, train and boat lines will be canceled.[29] Foreigners from high-risk countries (including Germany and Austria) would be banned from entering the country and Czech nationals would be prohibited from travelling to those countries.[30][27]

13 March[edit]

A new set of policies has been declared by the Czech government, including the closure of borders from Monday (with exceptions) - see details in the Policies section. The Brno University Hospital (a COVID-19 testing center) was hacked, disrupting services.[31][32]

It is forbidden to enter the front section of buses of the Prague Integrated Transport during the pandemic (14 March 2020)

15 March[edit]

The government held a meeting to decide if a nationwide quarantine should be declared to mitigate the damage inflicted by the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic and slow down further spreading. Less than an hour before midnight, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš announced the approval of the nationwide quarantine, restricting personal movement, allowing only going to work or carrying out work, getting provisions and necessary visits to family.[citation needed]

16 March[edit]

Starting at midnight, an hour after the nationwide quarantine declaration was approved the previous day, nearly 11 million Czech residents were placed under quarantine. The quarantine bans all non-work related travel, excluding necessary shopping, and visiting doctors, hospitals, and close relatives in need. Solitary walks outdoors in nature away from other individuals was also permitted.[2]

In addition to the quarantine, further travel restrictions were imposed barring all non-residents from entry into the country, and virtually all Czech citizens from travelling abroad.[2]

The first three cases of coronavirus recovery were reported.[33] All 3 are from Děčín, Ústí nad Labem Region and were in the group of first infected in the country.[34]

17 March[edit]

Hospital Bulovka, pavilon 7

The government now bans the export of imported medication. Three coronavirus cases are in the Intensive care unit, two taxi drivers and a woman at Bulovka hospital, two of them are stabilised.[citation needed]

18 March[edit]

The Czech government approved a ban on going out anywhere in public while not wearing a surgical mask or covering one's nose and mouth with a scarf. It also ordered that all shops serve only customers aged 65 and over between 10 am and noon.[35]

19 March[edit]

The government changed the time when shops are allowed to serve only senior customers to between 7 am and 9 am.[36]

21 March[edit]

Two planeloads of protective gear purchased by Czech Government in China was delivered to Prague airport: a heavy cargo plane Antonov An-124 provided through NATO Support and Procurement Agency brought 100 tons of masks, respirators and coronavirus tests from China, while a China Eastern plane brought seven million facemasks.[37]

This helped to alleviate the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the Czech Republic. According to Security Information Service, the shortage happened after Chinese embassy conducted massive purchases of respirators available on Czech market during January and February and transferred them to China.[38]

22 March[edit]

First death reported: a 95-year-old man.[39] While COVID-19 positive, at the time of death, the man was not at ICU and did not suffer from pneumonia that is a COVID-19 specific type of death. The man suffered from chronical heart issues and had also a pacemaker. The cause of death was formally established as a "complete exhaustion of organism".[40]

23 March[edit]

The local health authority in the Moravian-Silesian Region announced that 80% of COVID-19 examinations that were conducted in the region in the previous days with use of fast-test kits that government procured and airlifted from China (altogether 300,000 kits bought by the Czech Government for total price of CZK 54mil - approx. USD 2,1mil) came out wrong when double-checked through standard testing.[41][42]

The Czech government confirmed that restrictions on free movement of people and other measures were extended until April 1.[43] Gathering at publicly accessible place of more than 2 people banned. Exemptions for (1) members of same household, (2) exercise of profession and (3) funerals as long as distance of 2 meters in between persons is kept.[44]

24 March[edit]

Use of remdesivir

Remdesivir, originally developed by Gilead Sciences for ebola treatment, was approved for experimental use for COVID19 patients in serious condition on 17 March 2020 (see below).

On 23 March, an Uber driver hospitalized in Prague was the first patient in the Czech Republic that received remdesivir. The patient had been on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for over a week before his remdesivir treatment started.[45] Patient condition was slightly improving before being given remdesivir treatment and his condition still remains very bad.[46]

The patient's state got significantly better within a couple of days. After four doses, doctors could take him off ECMO and back to ventilator on 27 March. There were six more doses planned for the patient.[47]

A second death was reported: a 45-year-old man died after six days in a hospital in Havířov. The patient was suffering from advanced cancer with metastases to multiple organs. The cause of death was established as multiple organ failure due to cancer but COVID-19 infection accelerated the patient's death.[48]

A third death was reported: a 71-year-old woman died in Všeobecná fakultní nemocnice in Prague. The woman suffered from the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as well as other illnesses, so it wasn't immediately clear that she may be COVID-19 positive. Only after being hospitalized the woman informed doctors that her relative recently returned from Italy and was then tested for COVID-19. The woman was connected to a ventilator but died three days after start of hospitalization.[49]

Apart from the Uber driver on ECMO, there were 19 other patients in hospitals in serious condition, all of them connected to ventilators.[49]

25 March[edit]

A fourth and fifth death was reported: The fourth victim of the disease is a 82-year-old from Prague with long-term chronic health problems. The fifth patient is a 88-year-old man from the Central Bohemian Region who was at home getting treatment and was suffering from a chronic disease.[50]

A sixth patient died at Thomayer Hospital. The 75-year-old patient suffered from diabetes and Parkinson's disease and also had advanced heart problems. The patient had been in the hospital since January and got infected while in post-operative care. After this patient tested positive for COVID-19, the hospital tested all 29 other patients in the same ward on 22 March, all negative. The test was repeated again on 25 March, this time with positive outcomes for 13 patients. Several of the hospital's staff had become infected earlier, probably while taking care of the Uber driver who would later become the first remdesivir receiver in the country. This patient was originally admitted with simple pneumonia without initial indication for COVID-19. Two of the infected nurses were hospitalized at the local pulmonary ward at the time of the sixth patient's death.[50][51]

The government was planning to evacuate Czechs from Australia and New Zealand by the end of the week. Hundreds of Czechs still remained abroad, mainly in Oceania and Southeast Asia.[50]

Antonov An-124-100

An Antonov An-124 provided through the NATO Support and Procurement Agency arrived again with 24 tons of medical products purchased by the Czech government in China. The shipment included 52,600 protective suits, 70,900 protective glasses, 250,000 gloves, 1,160,000 respirators and eight million masks. Further government purchased personal protection equipment shipments were planned for delivery with use of planes by the companies Smartwings and China Eastern, which were contracted for nine flights per week.[52]

26 March[edit]

A Taiwanese student in her twenties, who recently returned to Taiwan from the Czech Republic tested positive for coronavirus. She left the Czech Republic after 8 months in the country on 19 March 2020, announced symptoms (fever, diarrhea) to Taiwanese authorities on 24 March and was diagnosed COVID-19 positive on 26 March 2020.[53]

The Czech Ministry of Health has ordered all grocery stores and food shops in the Czech Republic to provide plastic gloves for customers at the shop entrance.[54] Car washes, locksmiths or home appliances stores can reopen the stores. Hotels and guest houses can provide overnight accommodation for people away from home for work.[55]

The Czech Republic will offer 10,000 protective suits to Italy and Spain. The Czech Republic has many protective suits in part because, since joining NATO in 1999, it has focused on further developing its expertise in countering chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats.[56]

Czechs commuting to work in Austria and Germany are required to remain in those countries for at least 21 days. Upon return, they will be quarantined for 14 days. Czechs working in health, social services, and emergency services abroad are not subject to the new rules.[57][58]

34 patients are in severe condition. Three people died, bringing the total to 9. The eighth and ninth victim are from a senior-home in Michle, Prague. They had both serious chronic diseases.[55]

The government approved new measures to support the self-employed. Self-employed persons will receive a monthly benefit of 15,000 crowns.[55]

27 March[edit]

Despite having been quarantined already for two weeks, at least six retirement homes were hit by the spread of the COVID-19 virus.[59] Authorities noted also the rising number of COVID-19 positive healthcare workers.[60]

As the capacity for COVID-19 testing increased, authorities eased requirements for free testing. Anyone with a fever, dry cough or shortness of breath may be eligible for a free COVID-19 test.[61]

29 March[edit]

Prague, Krc, Thomayer Hospital

Five people died. Among the victims was a 45-year-old nurse from Thomayer Hospital, an elderly woman from a senior home in Michle and an elderly woman from a senior home in Břevnice. There were 227 patients in hospitals, 45 of them in severe condition.[62]

30 March[edit]

In South Moravia, testing of the so-called "smart quarantine" was started: local travel history of infected persons were to be tracked using data from mobile phones and bank cards. 300 military personnel were deployed to reinforce local health authority for the purpose of tracing patients' contacts and collecting samples. If this approach is deemed successful by the authorities for diminishing the pandemic, the "smart quarantine" method is planned to replace the existing nationwide curfew policy.[63]

The city of Uherský Brod started thorough disinfection of all common areas of apartment buildings and public areas after a significant increase in COVID-19 infections. Health authority registered thirty new cases in the town.[64]

The Czech Republic delivered personal protective aid to Spain and Italy: 10,000 protective suits each country as well as face masks.[65]

31 March[edit]

According to the update of the Ministry of Health, 20 people have recovered and a total of 8 have died today. Today 52 positive tests are confirmed from a community of 72 people living in a senior home in Litoměřice.[66] Employees of the senior home in Česká Kamenice in Děčín decided to stay with their clients 24 hours a day until the 15th of April, to avoid that the seniors could get COVID-19. [67]

1 April[edit]

Prague, Břevnov, Central Military Hospital, ÚVN

It was exactly one month ago that the Czech Republic reported the first coronavirus case. Eight people with COVID-19 have died in the Czech Republic today. The deaths today include another, already the second senior from an old people's home in Litomerice, north Bohemia and seniors from Prague and Moravia-Silesia.[68]

The Department of Infectious Diseases of the Central Military Hospital in Prague has treated COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine. Eight of them have already been released for home quarantine. The evaluation of preliminary results of this therapy will be carried out in April. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine were originally used to treat malaria, but at present they also help patients with autoimmune diseases - rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers these substances as one of the options to treat COVID-19.[69]

Epidemic curve[edit]

Flattening the curve[edit]

An illustration of the effect of spreading out infections over a long period of time on healthcare capacity managing patient volumes, known as flattening the curve[70]

The main priority of affected nations currently is to move to a slower doubling time of new cases, to ensure less crowded hospitals and therefore a lower case fatality rate.[71][72]

Governments of different countries take different approaches to flatten the epidemic curve. Beside travel bans and isolation of complete communities, citizens are also often requested to stay at home and keep social distance.[71]

Research indicates that measures must be applied rigorously and immediately in order to be effective. Also, the national community's commitment to supporting/tolerating the restrictions and following the advice of health authorities plays an important role in the success of flattening the epidemic curve and limiting the spread of the virus.[73][74]

For example, in South Korea mass testing efforts were successful. The South Korean national testing capacity reached 15,000 tests per day. Compared to population size, the Czech Republic reached the same rate of testing on 23 March 2020. The Ministry of Interior in South Korea also rolled out a smartphone app that can track the quarantined and collect data on symptoms, so scientists are able to see more epidemiological data.[75]

Curve comparison[edit]

Epidemic curve COVID19 certain countries.jpg

Comparing cumulative numbers of confirmed cases in selected countries, including the Czech Republic, shows the different curves of the epidemic in different countries.[76][77] The chart shows the number of known cases and the pace at which the number increases on a logarithmic scale. The actual number of people infected may be and likely is, significantly higher, as only cases where the virus was confirmed by laboratory testing are shown. Many cases may only have an asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic course of the disease and never seek treatment. In yet others, the infection may still be in the incubation period, when it is asymptomatic and may not yet be detectable even by testing.[78]

Basic reproduction number[edit]

In epidemiology, the basic reproduction number (sometimes called basic reproductive ratio, or incorrectly basic reproductive rate, and denoted R0, pronounced R nought or R zero[80]) of infection can be thought of as the expected number of cases directly generated by one case in a population where all individuals are susceptible to infection.[81] The definition describes the state where no other individuals are infected or immunized (naturally or through vaccination).

The higher the R0 ratio, the faster the disease spreads. If R0 is less than one, the reproduction within the population decreases.[79][82]

During the second half of March 2020 the progress of the pandemic in the Czech Republic showed a decrease in the R0 ratio from the value above 2.0 down to the value 1.5 or below. Indeed, the rate of the pandemic spreading decreased, still the nearing towards the 1.0 limit was slow. The day-to-day ratio of the total number of cases decreased in a similar way, falling below 10 percent at the end of March.

While the basic reproduction number does not show how serious the situation is (in absolute or per capita numbers), it gives an idea of how it is likely to develop.

Case details[edit]

Detailed information was reported regarding most of the first 99 cases, up to 12 March 2020:
