Lithuania reported 603 new coronavirus infections on Sunday, in addition to 474 cases reported on Saturday. Five people died of Covid-19 on Saturday.

Sunday's figure is the highest daily increase since the start of the pandemic, the country's National Public Health Centre (NVSC) said.

Earlier in the day, the NVSC reported 415 new cases, but revised the figure in the evening. The centre said that "due to major workload" specialists had not managed to link positive test results in time, therefore, the statistics released on Sunday morning "did not reflect the real number of confirmed coronavirus infection cases".

In all there have been 10,184 confirmed coronavirus infections since the start of the pandemic. At the moment, there are 5,740 active cases, while 4,073 people have recovered.

So far, 134 people have died of the disease.

There are 31,525 people in isolation.
