He praised the work of people in all professions, which proved to be key in the fight against the epidemic

In his New Year’s speech, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš said the year 2021 begins on an unhappy note as the Czech Republic failed to tame the coronavirus epidemic so far.

But it also showed solidarity, he said, adding that the vaccine presents hope for returning to normal.
