On Wednesday, Spain reported 1,690 infections, on Tuesday 1418 and Monday 1486. In the last day, the highest number of infections was in Madrid (843), followed by the Basque Country (545) and Aragon (418).
The sharp increase in the number of new cases in Spain is in line with a worrying trend to which many countries have already responded with travel restrictions. The Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Thursday that it would include Spain on the list of high-risk countries from 24 August. This means that tourists will have to submit a negative test for covid-19 upon return, or go to a two-week quarantine. Mandatory tests for all those returning from Spain also apply in Italy from Thursday.

So far, only Romania is on the Czech list of risky countries from the European Union. The Ministry of Health announced last week that Spain, Sweden, Bulgaria, Belgium and Portugal could be removed from the list of safe countries “in the short term” if the epidemiological situation there worsened. The ministry also noted last week that there was an increased risk of coronavirus infection in Catalonia, Aragon, Navarre and the Basque Country in Spain.
The inclusion of a state of the European Union among the risky means that its citizens can come to the Czech Republic only if they prove themselves with a negative test for covid-19. Czechs can travel to the country without restrictions, but on return they must also submit a negative test or enter quarantine.

In Spain, according to information from the Ministry of Health, four Czech tourists became infected with coronavirus in the last week. Since the beginning of the holidays, seven people have been infected.
Veils in public
In total, more than 337,000 people have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus since the beginning of the epidemic in Spain, of which 28,605 have died. In the last day, 26 patients died due to complications associated with covid-19.
In Spain, since the end of the state of emergency in the country two months ago, the Autonomous Regions have been taking measures against the spread of the disease. All have already introduced mandatory drapes for the public, some including beaches. Some of them also reduced the opening hours of nightclubs, as the average age of those infected under the age of 40 fell at this stage of the epidemic, compared with 63 in March.
Situation in France
France recorded a record increase in the number of coronavirus infections for the second day in a row. According to a new balance sheet published by the Ministry of Health on Thursday, 2,669 cases increased in 24 hours, which is the most since the end of quarantine. Reuters reported.
The moving average for the last seven days has risen to 1962 newly infected daily, the most since the end of April, when the country was still in strict quarantine. For two weeks now, this seven-day average has been above a thousand newly infected a day and has doubled during this time.
In total, more than 209,000 people have been infected with the covid-19 virus in France since the beginning of the pandemic, 30,388 of whom have died.
At the turn of spring and summer, the country gradually lifted most of the quarantine measures and at the same time introduced regulations on covering the face in various environments. Currently, people have to wear veils not only in public transport, shops or churches, but also when staying in selected outdoor locations throughout France.
