Third day in a row without new COVID-19 cases in Latvia

Latvia recorded no new cases of COVID-19 on June 23 for the third day in a row, the total number of cases remaining at 1,111 on Tuesday.

No further fatalities were recorded either, with the death toll remaining on 30.

The Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC) said 1,413 tests had been conducted during the previous 24-hour period. 

In total 140,437 tests have been carried out since February 29.

So far 903 patients have recovered.

Nine patients are in hospital, most of whom have moderate symptoms of the disease but one of whom is designated as being in a serious condition.

Members of the public are being urged to maintain sanitary discipline during these days of Midsummer celebration by continuing with frequent hand-washing, not mixing in large groups and maintaining physical distance from others. They are also being reminded that emergency crews are always kept busy at this time of year, particularly as a result of incidents involving alcohol, so are being urged to exercise good sense.

Jau rīt Jāņu vakars, tādēļ parūpējies, lai tas ir drošs!

❗️Diemžēl mūsu dati rāda,ka situācija gadu no gada ir nemainīga. Ik gadu pārgalvības vai alkohola reibuma dēļ Jāņos nopietnas traumas un apdegumus gūst desmitiem svētku svinētāji.

Sargi sevi un savus tuvos!
