Czech state-owned hard coal mining group OKD will shut all its mining operations for six weeks from Friday as it battles an outbreak of coronavirus infections, it said on Thursday. The mines, in the country’s east near the Polish border, have been the Czech Republic’s main hot spot of new cases in the past weeks. OKD’s decision means three deep mines will be shut in addition to the first location where the outbreak started and was shut on May 22.
