Another 1,000 miners in Darkov to be tested for Covid-19

Another large-scale testing is due to take place at the Darkov mine in Karviná in the Moravian Silesian region this weekend, after an outbreak of Covid-19 cases among the miners.

The virus was first detected last week and by Thursday, the number of cases among the miners and their families has increased to over 150.

Nearly 900 employees of the mine have already been tested and another 1,000 are to be tested this weekend.

The mine is operating as usual but strict hygiene conditions are in place.
