'yresnio amžiaus žmonėms taikomi karantino ribojimai gali virsti diskriminacija' ('Quarantine restrictions on older people can lead to discrimination') - 20 May 2020

 

Extract translated from Lithuanian:

"In response to the exceptional situation, the international network of non-governmental organizations AGE Platform Europe has issued recommendations to states . They emphasize that any restrictions on quarantine must be proportionate, carried out out of necessity, limited in time and applied in a non-discriminatory manner. It is stated that chronological age should not be a criterion for the provision or non-provision of goods and services. It is emphasized that older people need to be heard and their representatives involved in the development of pandemic management measures"
