The head of the Latvian Ministry of Health announced a possible new outbreak of coronavirus in the fall

The head of the Latvian Ministry of Health, Daniel Pavluts, announced a possible new outbreak of coronavirus in September. This is reported by the portal EADaily.

“At the moment, the situation is manageable. But I think that in the worst-case scenario, the incidence may rise sharply in the next two weeks, ”Pavluts said.

According to him, the increase in incidence may be associated with the beginning of the school year, an increase in the number of people in the premises and the spread of the more infectious “delta” variant of COVID-19.

Recall that on July 30, the Latvian government at an extraordinary meeting decided to submit to the Seimas a bill prepared by the Ministry of Health on a lottery for the vaccinated, which provides for a lottery for those vaccinated against coronavirus with a prize fund of 720 thousand euros. This decision is associated with a decrease in the rate of vaccination in the country.
