PM: curfew may remain in place for non-vaccinated people in Latvia after lockdown is overcome

Once the month-long lockdown is over, the requirement for residents to stay home may remain in place in «one form or the other» for residents in Latvia who are not vaccinated for Covid-19, allowed Latvia’s Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš in an interview to LTV programme Rīta panorāma on 27 October.
The politician admits it is too soon to say if the tight epidemiological restrictions could be lifted in November.
According to the PM, the question is what the «green regime» will be like after the lockdown – will the situation become like it was before strict quarantine, or will there be any changes?
Kariņš said «people cannot remain under restrictions forever». Restrictions put economic activities on hold and force people to borrow money, which sometimes leads to an inescapable loop. The PM once again urged residents to vaccinate.
