President says safety rules should be explained better in Latvia

Latvian President Egils Levits believes that the government needs to pay more attention to explaining safety measures to the public, Latvian Radio reported October 21.

On Wednesday, following a meeting with Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš, Levits said that the government had a good strategy to implement safety measures under certain scenarios, but it is still necessary to work to make them understandable to the public.

The President said it was essential to know what precautionary measures would be imposed to allow the public to plan their lives.

“For people's safety and predictability, it is important that we know, as a society, what could be the next safety measures under certain scenarios in case the pandemic situation is deteriorating,” Levits said.

The President said that it is so important that everyone comply with rules, because for the time being, the situation in Latvia remains better than in most other European countries. The limits imposed by the government that protect society from the pandemic are absolutely necessary, he said. Levits supports all safety measures that the government has proposed and imposed.
