0.9% of yesterday’s tests were positive. Yuri Perevoshchikov, Director of the Infectious Diseases Risk Analysis and Prevention Department at the SPKC, previously explained that this figure is considered important in the European Union (EU) because, beyond the 3% threshold, the spread of the disease is considered rapid and uncontrolled. Yesterday, when 95 cases of Covid-19 were reported, 2.2% of the tests were positive. Only on September 20, this indicator was below 1% in all Baltic countries, including 0.3% in Latvia.
