The state of emergency in the Czech Republic will end on April 11, it will not be extended. This was confirmed today by Prime Minister Andrej Babiš in an interview for the tn.cz server . As of April 12, restrictions on travel between districts and a ban on going out at night will no longer apply. The state of emergency in the Czech Republic due to the new coronavirus epidemic has been ongoing since last October 5 and has been extended several times.

"The fact is that the state of emergency is coming to an end, we will not extend it, we will go according to the pandemic law," Babiš told the tn.cz server.

Most government anti-coronavirus restrictions are linked to the emergency. Restrictions on the free movement of people depend entirely on it.

The minority government ANO and the CSSD wanted to keep the state of emergency until the end of March until 27 April. However, deputies allowed it to be extended only until April 11. Last week, at the suggestion of the Pirates and the coalition of the ODS, KDU-ČSL and TOP 09, the Chamber of Deputies called on the government to end measures restricting the movement of inhabitants within districts and control of citizens at the district border on Tuesday, April 6.

Travel outside the district of residence has been significantly limited in the Czech Republic since the beginning of March due to the epidemic. Exceptions are people traveling to work, to the office or to the doctor. It is also forbidden to leave between 21:00 and 05:00.

At the end of February and the beginning of March, when the stricter anti-epidemic measures came into force, there were repeatedly more than 14,000 newly confirmed cases of covid per day in the Czech Republic. However, from about the first week of March, the daily increases in the week-on-week comparison began to decrease, and this week there are on average 5,838 newly confirmed cases per day.
