At first – quick numbers: 8275 confirmed cases, 5058 recovered and 290 dead in Czech Republic.
“SARS-CoV-2-CZ-Preval” Study shows that the degree of immunization of the Czech population is very low. In the most affected localities does not reach the value of 4% – 5%. 27000 tested people revealed 107 positive cases.
The big news is that “Scientists from the Czech Republic top institutes have joined forces to create the new vaccine”. As Czech Health Minister Adam Vojtěch (ANO) said 4.5.2020.
Homeopathy is not a medical service, there is no scientific evidence, the court ruled this month.
At the beginning there was a fine of almost €2.000 imposed by the Regional Council of the Zlín Region on a woman who provided homeopathy counseling.
The fine was confirmed by the Ministry of Health. Both administrative bodies assume that homeopathic services meet the definition of health care under the Health Services Act and can therefore only be provided by the holder of the authorization to provide health services issued by the Regional Council.
But the Regional Court in Brno annulled the decision of the Ministry of Health, and it filed a cassation complaint with the Supreme Administrative Court.
Minister of Health of the Czech Republic cautiously opposes the TCM and fails to fight homeopathy.
Even worse, he advocates it.

And recently members of Czech Parliament removed TCM from the list of medical disciplines. Continue reading
There is (not only) one alternative medicine case in Czech republic which could be the igniter for an strong effort to a legislation change.
The Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic is preparing a law on healers in these days.
The ministry also wants to be able to examine if the healers did not harm the patients by their activities so this law should introduce the registration of healers and the obligation to keep the documentation. Those who will practice healing without the authorization or duty to compensate or the damage caused will be punished.
The ministry came with this regulation of healing after Czech TV broadcasts a document “Health Business” about Prague’s fraudulent Alternative Medicine Center Aktip.
(AKTIP holds Sisyfos silver Erratic Boulder award in the category of teams for the year 2016.) Continue reading
Andrej Babiš, billionaire, media mogul, anti-establishment populist, former totalitarian state police agent, became first prosecuted prime minister in history of Czech Republic.
He gained support of two other politic parties – Communists (KSCM) and Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD).
Both parties follow common anti-EU and anti-democratic course, SPD also spreads anti-immigrant mood. (EUROSTAT: 28 asylum seekers per million inhabitants of Czech Rep.!)
Does it matter to him whether the government gets the trust?
“I’m talking about people, not about what matters. You are dealing with “what matters”, in your bubble-journalistic world.” Babiš replied.
Czech democracy is dying and Václav Havel has been forgotten.
