This blog post is for all who are planning a trip to Prague (now, later, anytime). For all who are deciding whether it is comfortable and safe to come or not.
Who am I?
My name is Dana and I am working in a travel industry, running my small business called Prague Behind The Scenes. I specialize in small-group tours / private tours / off the beaten path tours.
Right now the situation is getting worse and worse in the Czech Republic. The new numbers don´t look optimistic at all. Fortunately there still many asymptomatic people or people with very light progress of covid-19 and the hospitals are not overloaded yet. But this may not last too long.
Yesterday there were over 8000 new cases in the whole country and we are expecting lockdown in the folowing days. The situation is changing every quickly and planning a trip to Prague these days or in the near future is not recommended. I am afraid the current situation will affect the whole winter season, Christmas, Christmas markets.
Why this blog post?
I am not a doctor, scientist or authority to give you binding information. I am a regular Prague local observing the situation and trying to help travellers / my clients to stay updated about life in Prague during / after the coronavirus outbreak.
Since I am working in a travel industry I get many emails and questions related to coronavirus in Prague and travelling to Prague after the corona pandemy. This blog post is updated regularly and focuses on information important to travellers.
Coronavirus in Prague, Czech Republic
By now (October 10) there are 57 842 patients with coronavirus in the Czech Republic. Many of the patients don´t need a hospitalization as the progress is very light. They stay at home in a controlled quarantine. 2 085 people are hospitalized. 934 people died since the beginning of pandemy.
Travelling to Prague now?
I don´t recommend it. Unfortunately. We are expecting a long lockdown in the upcoming days.
