Hundreds of people defied the rules of social distance and gathered on Tuesday at Charles Bridge, in Prague, to celebrate the end of the crisis of the new coronavirus in the Czech Republic with a group dinner at a giant table, advanced this Wednesday the BBC.
The bridge where the Covid-19 farewell party was held was built in the 14th century and was the place where the Czechs took food and drink and shared meals at a 500-meter table.
The event’s organizer, Ondrej Kobza, told the AFP news agency, quoted by the BBC, that he intends to celebrate the end of the coronavirus crisis with people who “are not afraid to take a bite out of someone else’s sandwich”. “Society cannot be afraid, otherwise we will have an economic crisis, a depression and this will affect society even more strongly than Covid-19”, he added.
The event “The table is set” also brought together improvised bands and a lot of music, at a banquet in which those present, who had previously booked on Facebook to participate, were invited to share food and drink, without any social distance or protective masks to prevent contagion.
I would love to be there, in the middle of this “crowned”! # Praha

The party took place hours before the mandatory use of a protective mask in public in the country was lifted, except in Prague. The country registered, until this Wednesday, about 12 thousand cases and less than 350 deaths.
