"The person returned from Sweden to Estonia by ferry on May 28 and then drove to Lithuania in his own car. Already feeling the symptoms, the person was taken to Klaipeda University Hospital by an ambulance and the diagnosis was confirmed on May 29," she said.

Earlier in the day, the NPHC reported 74 deaths and ten other deaths of coronavirus-infected people of other causes.
