Coronavirus infections are growing rapidly in the Czech Republic, with some 8,618 new cases reported on Saturday.

This marked a fourth day of record figures, with an increase of some 3,300 daily infections compared to the previous day.

From Monday, all theatres, cinemas, museums, galleries and sports facilities will be shut for two weeks to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

A complete lockdown has not been ruled out by the government of Prime Minister Andrej Babis, although the president, Milos Zeman, said in a newspaper interview on Saturday that the country could not bear another economic shutdown.

Some 905 people have died as a result of Covid-19 in the Czech Republic.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
