"It seems that we are entering a third pandemic wave. Lithuania's trajectory in the space of two pandemic indicators has gone into the previous path that was recorded in October," the service said on Monday.

The number of new daily cases is no longer going down and the percentage of positive tests is growing, it said.

"This tendency has been monitored for a whole week and now raised no doubt," the statement treads.

Lithuania's 14-day coronavirus infection rate currently stands at 242.9 per 100,000 people. The share of positive tests over the past seven days now stands at 7.8 percent.

Overall, 194,333 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Lithuania since the start of the pandemic. A total of 3,178 people have died from COVID-19 in Lithuania so far. The overall number of deaths directly or indirectly related to the coronavirus has reached 6,180.
