Over 600 homeless people spent the night in emergency shelters set up by Prague City Hall to fight the loss of life in the cold snap. There are an estimated 4,000 homeless people in the Czech capital and over twenty of them have frozen to death since the arctic spell hit. NGOs and support groups, which normally have strict rules regarding who is allowed into their shelters, now open their doors to anyone who comes along even if it means that people spend the night on the floor or on chairs. Despite this many homeless people prefer to stay where they are putting their lives at serious risk.
