Prague, Mar. 03, 2021, SPA -- The Czech Republic and Slovakia, both under severe pressure from the coronavirus pandemic, will each receive an extra 100,000 vaccine doses from their European Union partners, according to Reuters.
Both have ranked among the world's worst affected countries in recent weeks, with hospitals running out of beds and personnel, and have tried to accelerate their vaccination programmes.
Neighbouring Austria also said it would get extra vaccines from the EU as it struggles with the highly transmissible variant of the virus.
