Being ill in Prague is not economic

Due to flu epidemic that started more than three weeks ago many people have had to stay in bed. Czech Social Security Administration file how many Czech people and how long they stay in bed due to illness every year.

According to their statistics, Prague people stayed in bed in average 31 days last year, while the average for the whole country is 36,5 days. Prague people are not less ill as it may seem. They have usually higher salaries and they better take a holiday (with the full salary) than staying at home with the sickness benefit.
