Czechs bar unvaccinated from public events, services

PRAGUE, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Czech authorities will ban people who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from coronavirus infection from access to public events and services from Monday, Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Wednesday.

The restrictions, to be approved by the full cabinet on Thursday, come after a spike in new infections to record 22,479 on Tuesday and mean that negative tests will no longer be recognised as qualification to enter events and service establishments, Babis said on television.
