The Czech border should remain closed for one year to prevent a wave of the new coronavirus epidemic, which might happen if Czech people visited countries in which the virus still kept spreading, President Miloš Zeman told Radio Frekvence 1.

The limitations on free movement have been imposed since March 16. People can go abroad only in urgent cases.

Deputy Health Minister Roman Prymula said in March, when he headed the Central Crisis Staff, that foreign travels may be restricted for one or two years.

Health Minister Adam Vojtěch (for ANO) recently said unrestricted travelling abroad cannot be expected this summer season. He said Czechs might go to selected countries in which the epidemiological situation is rather good, such as Croatia and Slovakia.
