To prevent the spreading of the coronavirus infection, the LPR authorities put the Republic on high alert and changed the mode of operation of government bodies, companies, organisations and transport. As present, most of restrictions have been eased due to the improving COVID-19 situation.

According to the Republic’s Healthcare Ministry, it has fully stabilised and is under government and medics’ control.
