Two more men died in Guiezno in the west of the country, police said, adding that a total of six people are hospitalised in the two locations.

In the neighbouring Czech Republic, a wave of some 30 deaths from lethal alcohol in September and October forced the country to temporarily ban domestic liquor sales and spirits exports.
