The government led by Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte was sworn in on December 11.

Between that day and Thursday noon, Dulkys was mentioned in more than 5,000 media reports.

Interior Minister Agne Bilotaite, who ranked second, received three times less attention from the media.

The top five also included Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, Economy Minister Ausrine Armonaite and Environment Minister Simonas Gentvilas.

Meanwhile, Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys, Agriculture Minister Kestutis Navickas and Culture Minister Simonas Kairys have gotten the least attention from the media thus far.

According to Vilune Kairiene, head of monitoring and analysis division at Mediaskopas, the coronavirus pandemic dominated media coverage in the period under review, which put the ministers directly related to the management of the pandemic under the magnifying glass.

Mediaskopas analyzed 850 Lithuanian media sources, including national and regional press, online and news agencies’ reports, radio and TV news and journalistic broadcasts, during the study.
