Following a recent uptick in coronavirus cases, the Czech government has agreed to establish a special body to oversee the "smart quarantine" initiative. That body will be under the direction of the Ministry of Health – which has been criticised for failing to implement an effective system – but also the Army. Meanwhile, the ministry will roll out a new "traffic light" system mapping infection rates by local district rather than region.
