The movement of Latvians will be monitored by mobile phones

He urged his colleagues to be patient, as the data will likely become available in the coming days. In the meantime, he attributes the trend of a moderate increase in morbidity rates to school holidays – since the number of test results obtained as part of routine screening has decreased, other members of the families of schoolchildren are less likely to be tested.

In turn, in the hospitalization data, the result of the adopted restrictions will become noticeable only after two weeks, which means that the Ministry of Health is currently considering a scenario according to which the number of hospitalizations of Covid-19 patients in the first half of November could reach 3000.

Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins noted that two weeks had passed since the declaration of the state of emergency on October 11, and the first restrictions were to some extent effective.

At a government meeting, ministers conceptually decided to request data on the movement of people from mobile operators. Minister of Transport Talis Linkajts emphasized that, for example, in Riga the statistics of movement of people can be assessed by the flow of public transport, while in other regions of Latvia this indicator cannot be considered as objective.

As reported, since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in Latvia, 205 577 people have been laboratory confirmed, 3066 people with this disease have died.

The two-week cumulative incidence rate rose from 1,647 to 1,686.2 cases per 100,000 population. This is still the highest rate since the start of the pandemic.

Over the past 14 days, the total number of cases was 31,923.
