Lithuania's Finance Crime Investigation Service has brought suspicions against the country's Deputy Health Minister Lina Jaruseviciene as part of an investigation into procurement of rapid coronavirus tests.
The National Health Insurance Fund or another institution of the Lithuanian health care system could take over the responsibility for the e-health servers, Health Minister Aurelijus Veryga said on Friday.
As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in Lithuania went back up, the City of Vilnius has updated the action plan to combat coronavirus in order to bring the possible second wave of COVID-19 in the capital under control.
As of Saturday, 1 August, protective face masks will become mandatory again to wear on public transport and in enclosed shopping and service provision locations. The Government approved the decision on Wednesday.
Lithuania's Justice Minister Elvinas Jankevicius, substituting for Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene, says the Lithuanian government's non-adopted decisions regarding the entry of an Egyptian man to be with his Lithuanian partner who is about to give birth, as well as regarding a Syrian family were not coordinated with him.
