The Czech government declared a state of emergency for 30 days due to a surge in coronavirus cases, the public Czech Television reported on Thursday.

A state of emergency allows the government to order restrictions on public life. It was not immediately known what restrictions would be put in place, but the government has been considering a ban on large public events and limiting opening hours of restaurants and bars rather than a full lockdown.
