Thousands of crosses have been painted on a pavement in Old Town Square to commemorate a year since the first Covid death

O

ver 24,000 white crosses were marked on Prague’s Old Town Square this week to commemorate the victims of Covid-19 in the Czech Republic.

The country has gone from being one of Europe’s least-affected nations following the first wave a year ago, to one of its worst affected today.

Having lived under lockdown measures since October, Czechs still do not have the comfort of a “roadmap” back to normal life, and cases and deaths remain stubbornly high.
