(ANSA-AFP) - PRAGUE, 18 SET - The Czech Republic registered a record high of 3,130 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday, reaching in 24 hours a figure comparable with the entire month of March, health ministry data showed Friday. It was the third straight daily record for the EU member of 10.7 million people, which has registered 44,155 confirmed cases and 489 deaths since the March outbreak. And it matches a pattern across Europe of a surge in cases in August-September that has seen many countries move back towards tougher infection control restrictions. Data cited by the Czech News Agency (CTK) show the Czech Republic is now the second worst-off in the EU after Spain in terms of daily growth in cases per 100,000 inhabitants (ANSA-AFP).
