- Story Text:Prague residents received an acrobatic performance right on their doorsteps from a group of masked performers travelling though the locked-down Czech capital on Thursday (April 9)
People gathered on the street and from their balconies to watch the spectacle featuring a live band and an acrobat performing jumps and somersaults on a trampoline pulled by a truck.
Czechs are largely stuck indoors until at least the end of April after the country declared a state of emergency over the coronavirus and closed borders, schools, most shops and restaurants, and restricted people's movement.
The country is also now looking at easing of the measures in what has been dubbed a "smart quarantine" plan of quickly tracking and isolating contacts of people with coronavirus.
The Czech government has reported far fewer cases than its western neighbours, with 5,569 confirmed infections and 104 deaths as of Friday (April 10) morning.
