Czech deaths abroad return to pre-pandemic levels

As of Friday, the Foreign Ministry has recorded the deaths of 50 Czech citizens abroad since the tourist season officially began. Last year, from June 15th to September 15th, there were 105 Czechs who did not survive their trips abroad during the summer vacation season. In 2020, that number was just 60, reflecting the COVID-19 related travel restrictions in effect at the time. With the resumption of international travel, the number of deaths occurring abroad has returned to pre-pandemic levels, the foreign ministry’s press department told Czech News Agency.

Just last week, a Czech tourist was found dead on board the Italian island of Elba. At the end of July, police found the bodies of two missing Czechs in Jajar nad Sazav, on the Bar de Ecrins mountain in the French Alps. In early July, two Czechs died on a glacier slide on Mount Marmolada in the Italian Dolomites.
