RIGA - The Latvian government does not plan to change its decisions on Covid-19 restrictions after the state of emergency ends on March 1, Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins (New Unity) said in an interview with the Latvian public television today.
"No, we will not change anything," he said when asked whether there will be changes in the decisions already made.
In his words, Covid-19 incidence is at its peak, the number of new Covid-19 cases has not decreased for two weeks, but it is not increasing either. "The number of hospitalized Covid-10 patients is slightly up, this is what we should be concerned about," said Karins.
He also reminded that Covid-19 pandemic is not over. "Basically we use masks in all public spaces. Where we use masks, Covid-19 certificates will no longer be required as of March 1. We will be cautious, especially when we visit elderly people. Maybe these visits may wait," he said.
