"There'll be no discussions on the lockdown resolution this Wednesday," Simonyte told reporters, noting that the country's daily count of new COVID-19 cases has been hovering at around 1,200 for a third week now.

"The situation is unpleasant but stable," she said. "The government will definitely not take any further tightening measures unless it gets worse."

When asked if the lockdown rules might be changed before the planned roll-out of an immunity passport on May 24, the prime minister said, "Maybe next week, but I really don't want to promise anything."
