O článku:
The paper is aimed at the impact of COVID-19 on the quality of living and environment in Czechia. The pandemic has affected almost all countries with varying intensity. Its manifestations in the form of the number of infected and dead in the absence of an effective cure has provoked a reaction from governments, which has significantly affected people's lives and thus its quality. Due to its connection with the pandemic, the importance of physical space has increased, therefore attention is also focused on the impact of the pandemic on the quality of the environment. The authors, who deal with the impact of natural disasters on peoples’ quality of life, have stated a decrease in the quality of life after these disasters and the subsequent post-traumatic stress disorder. Although a pandemic differs from natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes or fires in its duration and the size of the affected population, its negative impact on the quality of life and the quality of space can be expected, and a hypothesis is formulated in this sense. The aim of the article is to explore the evaluation of our lives and the evaluation of the environment, measuring their quality and finding correlations at the time of the outbreak and the culmination of COVID-19. The research based on a questionnaires was conducted in the region of central and northern Bohemia (Czechia) among the population over the age of 18 and has brought surprising results.
