AP) — The Czech Republic is in chaos after Parliament deprived the government of a powerful tool to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

The lower house of the Czech Parliament late Thursday refused the minority government’s request to extend the state of emergency. Ministers have warned that will further worsen the situation and might cause the struggling health system to collapse. The country’s curfew will be lifted and some bars may reopen next week.

The opposition parties charge the current lockdown doesn’t work and want schools reopened. The country currently has the second-highest per capita number of new cases in the EU.
