Society must learn to live with Covid-19 and this epidemic wave cannot be halted, but its impacts can be reduced to protect the health-care system from collapse, incoming Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala (Civic Democrats, ODS) told reporters on Wednesday. Fiala is to head the new coalition government of the election-winning Together or the ODS, Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) and TOP 09 and the Pirates and Mayors and Independents (STAN) alliance. He is to be appointed as prime minister on Friday. The future government representatives presented their plan of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the country today. They called on citizens to limit their social contacts. They are of the view that the public health offices should tackle the epidemic based on the current situation. They may, for instance, restrict the number of people at public events, they added.
