During a meeting in the Crisis Management Council, Pavluts called for the introduction of the so-called “D + plan” for quarantine, which was developed back in March. As noted by Delfi, the proposed plan implies a plan for a complete lockdown.
It includes restrictions such as the introduction of a curfew from 19:00 to 06:00, a reduction in the working day to six hours, the use of respirators in public transport instead of medical masks, the transfer of all citizens to a remote mode of work, except for the spheres of production and construction, and also other restrictions.
Today Latvia is the first country in the world in terms of the rate of coronavirus infection. As the authors of the article emphasize, in the last week alone, the number of new cases has doubled compared to the previous one.
Last Monday, October 11, the leadership of Latvia announced the introduction of a state of emergency (PE) in the country. First of all, the restrictions affected the residents of the republic who were not vaccinated against the coronavirus. They can only visit convenience stores, pet food and optics stores, pharmacies, as well as telecommunications stores and gas stations.
