In Prague, thousands put protection away, feast ‘farewell’ to coronavirusPeople were filmed in close proximity, with little or no protection, eating and drinking on a table stretching 515-metres (1,689 feet) from one side to the other of the Vltava river.

Ondrej Kobza, the organizer, said, “I saw the empty Charles Bridge, no tourists, and I had an idea that maybe we could organize some long table, 500-metre long table for people. And the rule is that everybody have bring something — some cake, or chicken, or wine, or flower(s).”

The event comes as the World Health Organisation warns that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from being over, and that 'the worst is yet to come.'
