Abstract

Compared to the spring, when the Covid-19 pandemic started and people honestly followed the precautionary measures, the behavior of the Latvian population has changed significantly. The majority of Latvians do not exercise caution, and their activity has returned to pre-Covid-19 levels this autumn, negatively affecting the epidemiological situation in the country, according to an analysis of population behavior. Within the research, the epidemiological statistics of Center for Disease Prevention and Control and Latvian Mobile Telephone (LMT) mobile network events were analyzed to determine the relationship between population activity and epidemiological situation in Latvia as a whole, as well as in each region. According to the performed analysis, it is possible to divide Latvia into two parts - municipalities that were active during the emergency situation and places where the greatest activity is observed before and after the emergency situation. It was concluded that mobile call activity during emergencies in both cities and counties is still high, it is 70% - 80% of the precrisis period. Since the spring, people's behavior and habits have changed significantly, so a different approach is needed.
