Starting from July, Lithuania will be able to resume transport connections not only with the countries of the Schengen area but also with Ukraine and Georgia. This was stated by Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius in an interview with LRT, as Delfi reported.
"From July 1, some external routes will probably be opened outside the Schengen area, but not massively and not recklessly. We hope that we will be able to establish contact with Ukraine and Georgia. We thought about Israel, but the situation there has recently worsened," Linkevičius said.
The Minister has noted that these are the residents of countries, where the incidence rate does not exceed 25 cases per 100,000 population during the last 14 days, who can come to Lithuania.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine is now in the “red zone” in terms of coronavirus infection.
It is worth noting that the countries of the “red zone” are countries in which the number of active cases of Covid-19 is over 40 people per 100,000 people.
As of June 22, there were 19,597 active cases of coronavirus in Ukraine. And there are 46.8 active cases of infection per 100,000 people in Ukraine.
