Six out of ten Czechs consider the state's response to the spread of COVID-19 to be adequate, according to the results of a poll conducted by the CVVM agency, Czech Radio reports.

61% of respondents said the measures taken against the epidemic were appropriate, roughly a fifth of people rate them as exaggerated and 13% consider them insufficient.

The majority of respondents said the measures were poorly communicated by the government. People rate the work of doctors, nurses, paramedics and emergency crews exceptionally high, but are more critical of the performance of the government, the media and the World Health Organization (WHO).
