The classification as risk areas means that people coming to Germany from such places must have a negative test for coronavirus or be subject to mandatory quarantine.
For the German authorities, the decisive criterion is to exceed the limit of 50 infected per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days. This limit is now exceeded by many districts not only in the Central Bohemian Region, but throughout the Czech Republic. In Central Bohemia it is, for example, Beroun (123.08), Benešov (104.61), Kladno (109.92), Mělník (96.6) or Příbram (90.35).
In the Czech Republic in recent days, the number of newly infected several times has significantly exceeded a thousand, and the number of deaths is increasing. Germany, which has eight times the population, has a comparable or even lower number of new infections.
