Five days of solitude still awaits those arriving in the Czech Republic at this time from the United Kingdom. This also applies to the tens of thousands of checkers still living on the islands. “This is ridiculous,” said Matthew, who lives in Scotland angrily.
The United Kingdom is still listed by the Czech Ministry of Health as one of the “most dangerous countries in the world”. At the same time, the epidemic situation in the UK is much better than it is currently in the Czech Republic.
The number of daily cases there has fluctuated from two to three thousand in recent days. In addition, data released by the English Public Health Office (PHE) show that more than half the districts in the UK were free almost a month.
According to the correct action of the Ministry, the states with the highest (or darkest red) risk should be those with a total of 500 or more cases per 100,000 people in the last 14 days. For example, France (value 688), Turkey (759), Sweden (624) and others are colorful in this way.
However, the United Kingdom has significantly less data.
The total number of newly reported cases per 100,000 population in the last two weeks on April 13 was only 57 for the whole of Britain (Worldometers are calculated from server data, note red.). Therefore, according to this criterion, the UK has nothing to do with the “dark red” category.
Chekia vaccine is not taken into account
Behind the rapid improvement of the situation is primarily a difficult lock (third in total), which has been going on since the beginning of January and is now gradually beginning to release. For example, on Mondays, residents of the UK may go to an outdoor restaurant for lunch after a long day. The Scots should see it on April 26th.
The second reason is the vaccine. So far, British doctors have administered more than 40 million doses, with at least one dose already received by 32 million people in 67 million countries, almost half. In the UK and Scotland, more than 94 per cent of people over the age of 50 are partially protected, which is highly appreciated by local governments.
Therefore, taking these circumstances into account, it may appear that the Czech Ministry will place the British Kingdom under a lower category of control. However, the resort does not take into account the vaccination rate, and this symptom is not on the list of criteria. The ministry’s press department did not respond to a news question as to why this was even after the emergency.
UK: Variations are everywhere
At the same time, it should be noted that the Ministry states that it may also be included in this list of high-risk countries where the community of new variants of the corona virus is contagious. It is not clear whether this is the reason why Britain is still considered so dangerous. The Ministry of Health did not respond to queries.
A spokesman for the British Ministry of Health told the News that most cases in the country are caused by what is known as the “Kendish variant” of the virus. However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Britain’s bid for independence, but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer. According to British officials, the South African variant refers only to minority cases in the islands.
