0 0

The rally of football and hockey fans demanding the lifting of the restrictions imposed by the Czech government against the spread of coronavirus escalated into clashes with police in the center of Prague, TASS reports. The fans marched from the Prague main station through Wenceslas Square to the nearby Old Town Square. There they began to verbally abuse the guards. It also turned out that the meeting was attended by a significantly larger number of participants than 500 people, which was agreed.
The Old Town Square was cordoned off by the police. The streets adjacent to it were blocked. The operation, according to the authorities, involved more than 1,000 police officers.
On Saturday, October 17, a protest rally of football fans, dissatisfied with the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus, took place in Bratislava. The police used tear gas and a water cannon to disperse the participants.
The Czech government has tightened measures to combat COVID-19 since Wednesday, October 14. The country, with a population of 10.7 million, previously recorded Europe’s fastest growth rate in new cases in recent weeks after authorities eased most restrictions.
The German and Polish authorities have also expanded restrictive measures in the fight against coronavirus. In Berlin, meetings are limited from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am. No more than 50 people can meet in one place during the day. In Poland, seniors will have special shopping hours: every morning from ten in the morning until noon.
