There has been a significant increase in the number of flu cases around the country. The number of people admitted to hospitals with the H1N1 strain of the flu has risen several-fold with the Plzen region reporting an epidemic and the Moravian and Silesian regions reporting a 32 percent increase in the number of flu patients. Many hospitals have closed their doors to visitors and the health authorities are urging elderly and chronically ill people to get a flu shot while there is still time. Only around five percent of Czechs get vaccinated against the flu.
