Czech President hospitalized with coronavirus 19 hours after discharge

Czech President Milos Zeman was again admitted to a hospital in Prague this Thursday, hours after discharge, after testing positive for covid-19, his spokesman Jiri Ovcacek said in a statement.

“The president’s program will be suspended while he is undergoing treatment for COVID-19,” he added.

Ovchachek also said that given the new developments, the head of state will not appoint a new prime minister on Friday, as originally planned.

Zeman, 77, was hospitalized the day he was discharged from the hospital, where he was admitted to intensive care on October 10, the day after the parliamentary elections.

The politician in charge remained in this hospital ward for over three weeks and then was transferred to the rehabilitation department.

According to local media reports, the Czech president suffers from liver problems, allegedly due to alcohol consumption.

Prior to re-hospitalization due to a positive covid-19 test, Milos Zeman left the military university hospital in Prague to travel to his home west of the Czech capital, according to the hospital.

On November 11, he accepted the formal resignation of outgoing prime minister, populist billionaire Andrei Babis, following his electoral defeat, and was expected to appoint center-right leader Petr Fialu as prime minister on Friday.

The three-party Ensemble alliance, led by Petr Fiala’s ODS, has formed a coalition with two other parties, including the Pirate Party, and has a majority of 108 of 200 seats in the new lower house of parliament.

The military university hospital opposed the president’s departure, arguing that he was recommended to be treated in a specialized institution, but authorized it, given the noticeable improvement in health and his desire to continue to carry out his constitutional activities outside the medical institution.

After the plane thaw found two corpses in the Swiss Alps

After the discovery of the wreckage, two bodies were found in the melting ice of the Swiss Alps. Snowless winters and hot July temperatures are slowly revealing the secrets hidden in the Alps.

Two French climbers discovered the bodies on Wednesday while climbing the Chesgen glacier in Valais.

The bones were brought by helicopter for examination. Police say the DNA identification process “may take several days.”

The discovery happened next to a trail that hadn’t been used in over a decade, said Dario Andenmatten, director of the mountain hut in Britain, where many climbers start their ascents in the region.

French climbers were guided by an old map, which led to the discovery. One of the climbers claims that one of the bodies found was wearing “clothing from the 80s.” According to the report, the body was mummified and slightly damaged, “but nearly intact.”

Investigators estimate the death occurred “around the 1970s or 1980s.”

A week ago, a body was found next to the Stockey glacier, near the resort of Zermatt, on Monte Cervino, the most famous mountain in the Alps.

Police in the Alps maintain a list of some 300 people who have gone missing since 1925, one of which is billionaire supermarket chain owner Karl-Erivan Haub who disappeared in 2018.

After a relatively snowless winter, the Swiss Alps have already experienced two heatwaves in the summer. In July, authorities advised climbers not to climb the Matterhorn due to abnormally high temperatures, which reached almost 30 degrees Celsius in Zermatt.

During the July heat wave, the height at which the water froze was a record 5184 meters compared to the normal summer level of 3000 to 3500 meters.
