PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech government has decided that all people must wear face masks inside public buildings from Thursday after a record spike in new coronavirus cases that topped 1,000 for the first time.

Health Minister Adam Vojtech announced the measure on Wednesday after his ministry reported a one-day spike in COVID-19 infections of 1,164, while neighbouring Germany, a country almost eight times larger in population, had 1,176.
