The Czech government has extended one plank of its Antivirus progamme supporting businesses hit by the coronavirus crisis. Companies that have been forced to close will have salaries paid up to the amount of CZK 50,000 a month, including contributions, the minister of labour and social affairs said on Wednesday. The ministry estimates that the fresh round of compulsory closures will hit up to 200,000 people.
