According to the Minister of Health Roman Prymula (ANO), stricter measures against COVID-19 will be announced on Friday.
On Monday, the government will also discuss the possibility of calling medics to help hospitals.
The Czech Republic reported 4,457 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, its highest one-day tally since the pandemic started, Health Ministry data showed on Wednesday.
There are growing concerns about how prepared the healthcare system is as the number of new COVID-19 cases rose by 50% in September, Europe’s second-largest spike in cases.
The government wants to avoid putting too much strain on its hospitals and has said enough beds are still available but further increases in infections could require the reorganization of care and the postponing of non-urgent procedures.
Milan Kubek, president of the Czech Medical Chamber, said that as of October 5 around 1,200 patients are hospitalized with COVID-19 and 280 of them are in a serious condition, which is now putting pressure on hospitals to reallocate already-sparse intensive care beds for coronavirus patients.
The number of people hospitalised with COVID-19 has climbed to 1,387, of which 326 are in intensive care – more than three times the peak seen when the outbreak first hit.
Education is one of the most important stages for all people. If a person isn’t educated, he/she lacks relevant information that helps to make the right decision.
Non-educated people commonly cannot find a job. Even if they do that, the salary is lower in comparison with educated workers. Smart Czech students clearly realize that. They want to receive the best education and frequently try to study in the United States of America.
Thanks to the process of globalization, the borders are open. Thus, many international students go to the USA to receive a good education. A group of essay writing experts from Advanced Writers know how great the US educational system is. Thus, it’s no wonder so many youngsters from the Czech Republic try to get into one of the US colleges or universities. Is it possible? The answer is positive. You should simply do in-depth research to define appropriate options. Besides, you may subscribe to some informative portals of the Czech Republic. They shed more light on the educational and cultural life in the country. Thus, you may learn a lot of useful tips for your future education.
Useful Websites to Find a Scholarship
It’s not easy to define the best scholarship. Everything depends on the preferences of a student and the program offered by a college or university. Therefore, we recommend finding it using adequate data. There are several great websites, which help Czech students to define a perfect scholarship in the USA.
- The Czech Educational Foundation of Texas
The state of Texas has one of the largest Czech populations in the USA. Accordingly, you should pay attention to CEFT. It was established in 1945 and it promotes learning Czech language and culture. It’s an amazing chance for students to receive a higher education certificate on advantageous terms. Choose arts, language, culture, history, music, or any other specialty.
It is one of the smartest sites that help to pick a perfect scholarship. You can easily orient there. You should identify only three important features. Using a big menu that appears right above, select your nationality, a country where you want to learn (it’s the USA for our case), and a degree level. Afterward, press “FIND”. The smart AI will offer all the available options according to your settings. You can choose from:
- Fashion Design;
- Software Engineering;
- Science and others.
The site offers other countries. If the US direction doesn’t have the program you need, consider other countries. You can also find dedicated web pages, which describe programs of the best universities in the USA, as well as the UK, Canada, Australia, and other countries.
- Current School News
Obligatorily consider this informative website. It provides a list of the full international student scholarships in 2020-2021. You’ll find detailed descriptions of every available option. Of course, there will be a direct link that leads to the official website of a college or university. You can quickly reread the options you need and apply. The website also offers a quick search, useful blogs, and materials.
Another great option is Uscollegeinternational.com. This site provides the best 20 scholarship programs for international students in the USA. You’ll find detailed descriptions and direct links to such famous institutions as Princeton, Yale, Harvard, University of Chicago, and others. Accordingly, you will possess the necessary data to make the right choice.
Besides, the website offers helpful blogs for students. Most of them describe the cheapest colleges in different cities in the USA. However, you can find other interesting blogs. For example, they are related to the typical problems of international students and how to overcome them.
Quick Tips to Adapt in a Foreign Country
Even if you get the desired scholarship in the USA, it’s not enough. You will live in a foreign country with a different mentality and unknown traditions. Many international students cannot cope with culture shock and have to return home. We want to help you and propose a few quick tips to withstand problems with adaptation. Czech students can use the following recommendations:
- Find a few local friends;
- Learn local customs and traditions;
- Find out the vital facts about the city you’ll study in;
- Practice English with native speakers;
- Focus on the positive;
- Give yourself some time to get adjusted;
- Do not compare yourself to others;
- Find some time to relax;
- Be an active student;
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Czech citizens will have to register themselves when visiting pubs and restaurants, as in Germany or Britain, Minister Prymula plans.
In the UK, venues “should assist this service by keeping a temporary record of your customers and visitors for 21 days, in a way that is manageable for your business”.
GDPR (General Data Protection Register) rules required the customer to be told why and how their data was being collected and what would happen to it.
“When the Ministry of Health will announce, I will release a comment about it,” Interior Minister Jan Hamáček (CSSD) told CNN Prima NEWS.
Prymula added that a more massive campaign is being prepared in favor of expanding the eRouška app, which is currently used by about 560,000 people.
Further updates will follow soon.
“Social gatherings between 10 and 20 people could be banned in the Czech Republic in response to a sharp increase in coronavirus cases”, Minister of Health Roman Prymula (ANO) said on Sunday on Prima television.
The official announcement is expected to be released on Wednesday or Friday.
“We need to act now to stop the virus spreading. So we are simplifying and strengthening the rules on social contact, making them easier to understand and for the police to enforce.”
Prymula also mentioned the need to increase testing capacity. “We should reach 30,000 tests a day, now we are around 23,000”, he concludes.
“It is important to understand that the later we introduce the measure, the longer it will last. That is the reason why we have to act quickly,” Prymula said, adding that he would also like to present a plan for a longer period of time, which would show how the situation can develop around Christmas time.
The Czech Republic reported 1,985 new cases of coronavirus on Saturday and nine related deaths.
The figures brought the total number of cases to 63,294 and deaths to 591 in the country of 10.7 million people. The number of people in hospitals rose to 809 from 740 as of Friday, the latest data available.
Number of people infected divided by region:

God (and my fiancé) knows how much I love to have a good breakfast in Prague. If you ask me, I could eat breakfast all the time. Lunch, dinner, snack – you name it. Nothing beats a good old smoothie bowl as an afternoon snack.
Can you imagine how happy I was to discover that the Prague breakfast/brunch scene is not only consisted of sausages and eggs? Quite the contrary, it’s full of many options for everyone. Vegetarians, vegans but also meat lovers will all find something for them.
I visited quite a lot of brunch places in Prague. With some of them, I was super happy, while some of them disappointed. Below you can find which one I liked the best.
Namesti Jiřího z Poděbrad 4, 120 00 Praha
Cafefin is definitely my favorite breakfast/brunch spot in Prague. I went there a lot of times and I was never unhappy with the service or the food. Their menu is diverse and healthy with decent size portions.
Bad thing is that they change the menu from time to time, so sometimes you don’t know what to expect. It gets crowded during breakfast time, so you have to be lucky to catch a spot.
You can find more information here. Please note that they don’t take reservations.

Muj Salek Kavy
Křižíkova 386/105, 186 00 Praha 8-Karlín
Last year when I visited Muj Salek Kavy, I wasn’t that happy with it. I don’t know, everything seemed more or less fine, but the vibe I was getting from the waiters wasn’t good. But this year I went again, and I was blown away with good service and excellent food. So I’m happy to say that Muj Salek Kavy is a great choice for breakfast in Prague.
I didn’t like the fact they charge 10 crowns for tap water. It is for charity but still, I don’t like the concept of charging for tapped water. Their prices are high enough that the owner can donate even without charging for tap water.
Anyhow, I liked the place and I recommend it. You can check their menu here.

Nejen vegany jistě potěší naše letní variace misky s fazolovým hummusem. Ten jsme tentokrát připravili z bílých fazolí a tymiánu. Na vrcholu této výživné many pak najdete muhammaru [محمرة] – dip z pečených paprik s balsamikem a vlašskými ořechy. K tomu pak pečený lilek a křupavá bageta. Určitě vyzkoušejte v kombinaci s našimi domácími limonádami. #mujsalekkavy #kavarnamujsalekkavy #karlin #hummus #muhammara #leto2020

Seriously, you have to go there and eat the best goat cheese omelet. It’s divine and, when I was there last time, prices were more than ok. My colleague recommended me to try their avocado toast. Apparently, that’s their most famous dish. Well, something for next time? ?
All information about this place can be found on their website.

Masarykovo nábř. 2016/6, 120 00 Nové Město, Czechia / Francouzská 13, 120 00 Praha 2-Vinohrady, Czechia
Although very different in style, both locations of Marty’s kitchen are a good choice for brunch. The location in Vinohrady is smaller and features only a few tables. Contrary to that, the location on Masarykovo Nabrezi is bigger with a larger outdoor sitting area.
I prefer the one near to the river more because of its location and interior style only. You can find their menus here.
