In Latvia, the number of new corona infections reached a new high on Saturday with 642 cases within 24 hours. The health authority in Riga announced that there have been over 12,700 recorded cases in the Baltic EU country since the outbreak of the pandemic in the spring. According to official data, 163 people have died in connection with the virus in the Baltic Sea state. Latvia, with its almost 1.9 million inhabitants, was only slightly affected by the first corona wave in spring, but registered a rapid increase in infection
rates in autumn. According to the EU authority ECDC, the development in the Baltic Sea state is currently even better than in Germany. Nevertheless, the federal government will classify all of Latvia as a corona risk area from Sunday. In view of the increasing number of new infections, the government in Riga has called for a one-month emergency until December 6 for the second time. As in the spring, this restricts public life and economic activities. This is to prevent the Latvian health care system, which has been chronically underfunded for years, from being overloaded.
