Czech parliament extends state of emergency until Dec. 12

PRAGUE, Nov 19 (Reuters) - The lower house of the Czech parliament voted on Thursday to allow the government to extend a state of emergency until Dec. 12 as the central European country struggles with one of the continent’s worst COVID-19 outbreaks.

The state of emergency is the legal basis for some government measures aimed at slowing the spread of the infection, such as limits on assembly, temporarily shutting businesses, or a night-time curfew. (Reporting by Jan Lopatka; Editing by Catherine Evans)
