Lithuania was no exception and faced the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Various areas have been affected – business, tourism, education, social and cultural life. However, health care and public health have suffered the most. High rates of morbidity, complications, and mortality from COVID-19 have caused significant challenges to the health care system. In total 2266 people died of COVID-19 in Lithuania in 2020. The mortality rate was 81.1 per 100,000 population. In 2020, a total of 114,002 people became ill with COVID-19. The disease accounted for 5% of all causes of death in 2020.
