Given that the situation in other European countries is deteriorating, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on everyone to carefully and responsibly assess the need for any trip abroad. Although currently, when returning from Lithuania, self-isolation does not have to be observed, the situation may change in a week, the ministry points out.
If the incidence in Lithuania increases and the cumulative indicator reaches 16, then from September 5, when the updated list of countries will come into force, after the trip to Lithuania, 14 days of self-isolation will have to be observed. The same principle will apply to Estonia or to any other country whose cumulative rate reaches 16.
In Lithuania, 32 people were confirmed infected with the new coronavir virus last day, the Lithuanian Ministry of Health said on Monday. Thus, in Lithuania, infection with Covid-19 was detected in a total of 2906 people, while recovery was confirmed in 1840 people.
Lithuania reportedly escaped from the list of high-risk countries last Friday, when the list of SPKC countries was updated, reaching 15.5 cases per 100,000 population. However, according to the European SPKC data, on Saturday Lithuania exceeded the set limit – the 14-day cumulative number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population there on Saturday was 16.4.
