The Czech Republic has been one of the countries in the world hardest hit by the coronavirus epidemic in the past few weeks.
Overcrowded hospitals are already unable to provide adequate care for patients. Therefore, the country has turned to Germany, Switzerland and Poland, through the Union’s emergency call system, to help place a few dozen coronavirus patients in their hospitals.
