Take note – story published 2 years ago

On Friday, June 25, Latvia recorded 20 new cases of Covid-19 infection, according to the Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC).

The total number of cases detected since the start of the pandemic now stands at 137,130.  

Of 2,361 tests carried out in the past 24 hours, just 0.8% were positive.

The 14-day cumulative infection rate per 100,000 inhabitants continued its decline, from 80.6 Thursday to 72.3 Friday, with the epidemiological risk now rated "moderate" and heading towards the next threshold of 20 cases per 100,000 of population which is rated "low risk". 

There was one more death from Covid-19 confirmed Friday, of an individual aged 60-69 years. The death toll since the start of the pandemic now stands at 2,501.

Unsurprisingly, the June 24 public holiday was a slow one as far as vaccinations were concerned, with just 28 people receiving a first vaccination and 27 receiving a second one.

Meanwhile Estonia reported 10 new coronavirus cases on Friday and Lithuania 18 cases.
