"The prime minister has been tested for coronavirus. The result is negative," Tomas Berzinskas told BNS.

"The test was performed because the prime minister had visited places that are considered as high-risk today and had contact with persons who are in self-isolation today because of exposure to persons diagnosed with coronavirus," he added.

According to the latest figures from the Health Ministry, a total of 1,466 people have been tested for the COVID-19 virus in Lithuania and 69 of them have been diagnosed with the infection.
