17-11-2009

Hradec Králové‛s faculty hospital has banned visits until further notice on the grounds that they could infect patients with flu. The 1,500 bed facility is one of the biggest in the country. The ban also applies to local hospitals in the region. The steps have been taken following warnings that the swine flu epidemic is likely to hit the Czech Republic from the middle of December.
