Most of the new cases, or 954, were primary, 349 were secondary, and 15 were tertiary.

The number of hospital patients now stands at 142, including nine ICU cases.

The 14-day primary infection rate has risen further over the past 24 hours to 595.2 cases per 100,000 people, with the seven-day percentage of positive tests up to 53.4 percent.

However, the daily number of new coronavirus cases is still way below the peak of over 14,000 reached in early February.

More than 1.1 million people in Lithuania have tested positive with COVID-19 at least once.

Some 69.9 percent of the Lithuanian population have received at least one coronavirus vaccine jab so far.
