"Regarding that birth, I have information that it has taken place and was successful. Everything is fine at this moment," the minister told journalists at the parliament.

According to the minister, the hospital took all safety measures, adding that the mother and the baby are now being cared for separately.

The national broadcaster LRT reported about the woman giving birth in Santara Clinics earlier in the day.

It also said the woman was transferred from Vilnius Maternity Hospital after she was found to have contracted the COVID-19 virus.
