Close in Latvia.  The country is closed for a month

The lockdown in Latvia is expected to last four weeks, from October 21 to November 15. “The government wants to try to slow the growth of infections in one of the least immune countries in the European Union,” Reuters reported.

Health Minister Daniels Pavlots announced the country’s lockdown after an extraordinary government meeting. Reuters reports that “Latvia ranks first in the world in terms of infection rate.”

Due to another closure in Latvia, shops, restaurants, schools and entertainment venues will be closed. A curfew will also be imposed from 20 to 5 am – and only essential services will be available – the minister said. “The closure will only be eased for vaccinations,” he added.

“Our health system is in danger,” Prime Minister Krisjanis Karenz said. “The vaccination process did not go well,” he added.

He also noted that the country’s healthcare system is at risk due to the sharp increase in the number of hospitalized patients. The Prime Minister stressed that if we do not radically change this, hospitals will not be able to help not only coronavirus patients, but also those who have been vaccinated, who will only get worse with other diseases.

A state of emergency has been imposed in Latvia since Monday 11 October. “All citizens had to return to the widespread use of face masks as it is one of the main epidemiological safety measures,” the Latvian government wrote.

In the last week of October 11-17, 14,340 new infections were recorded. In the past 24 hours, the number of new cases in Latvia has reached 1,253, and seven have died. Due to the Corona virus, there are 1,114 Latvians in hospitals
