On one hand, we can’t simply ignore the present alarming situation and keep going like nothing is happening. On the other hand, we for sure shouldn’t fall into the other extreme and succumb to stress and anxiety. Inevitably, the recent events trigger anxiety in all of us, no matter how emotionally and psychically stable we (think we) are. We are outside of our comfort zones, mentally strained, unsure and wary of things to come. Therefore, it is of highest importance for us to brace ourselves with patience, discipline and kindness.
The Czech government declared a state of emergency and it is only natural that the latest countermeasures regarding the coronavirus pandemic left many foreigners scared.

The Czech Republic has 41 patients with the new virus for now, and the Czech Ministry of Health has announced some extraordinary measures. Therefore, from March 10, 18 PM, all public events with more than 100 people will be called off, while the previous ban covered only events with more than 5000 people.
