PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech Republic’s total tally of COVID-19 cases now exceeds 50,000, Health Ministry data showed on Monday.

Of a total 50,071 cases, 25,336 patients had recovered and 521 had died as of Monday at 1558 GMT.

The total number of cases has doubled in September as the country battles a surge in infections, which has been growing at the second fastest rate in Europe after Spain when adjusted for population.
