"Today, we have agreed with South Korean President Moon Jae-in that their specialists will share their knowledge and experience with officials of the Lithuanian crisis management and healthcare institutions," the Lithuanian president said in a Facebook post today after his phone conversation with the South Korean counterpart.

Lithuania has recently received a shipment of reagents used for coronavirus tests from South Korea.

The South Korean leader also pledged to act as an intermediary during the acquisition of other medical equipment from the country's producers, Nauseda said.

Following the coronavirus outbreak, South Korea launched a wide-ranging testing program and control of people's movement and subsequently managed to slow the spread of the virus, compared to Europe and the United States.

Over 9,000 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in South Korea and over a hundred people have died. But no more than 100 cases have been confirmed in South Korea daily for the past several weeks.
