Since the beginning of the pandemic until November 30th, 2022, a total of 1,275,230 infected people and 9,431 deaths have been reported in Lithuania.
The total of 1,275,230 infected people currently represents 45.64% of the total population.

In the same week, nine people died from (or with) Covid-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.7 percent in Lithuania.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 4.51 million vaccine doses have been administered as of November 13th, 2022. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. 1.96 million people have received at least one vaccination (70.1%). The booster vaccination was received by 899,354 people (32.2%).
1.91 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Lithuania (= 68.2%).
This means that Lithuania is still among the fairly good midfield countries in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 89 countries.

Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Lithuania is above average and also exceeds the average achieved in the EU countries. The country provides 6.4 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 12,100 physicians in Lithuania, there are about 4.34 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 19 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
