President Kersti Kaljulaid and Prime Minister Jüri Ratas (Center) met in Kadriorg on Monday to discuss the current crisis caused by the coronavirus, mental health and the new minister for foreign trade and IT.

A message was posted on Kaljulaid's Facebook page on Monday evening which said the pair had met for the first time in serval weeks and had maintained the two-meter social distancing rule at their meeting. Both also wore face masks.

Their conversation was mainly about the coronavirus and the measures the government have put it place to combat its spread. Kaljulaid said the conversation also touched on mental health and preventing loneliness. The message said: "Loneliness is overwhelming and must not be underestimated."

She also said everyone has responsibility for their own behaviour and must follow the restrictions put in place. "So let us resist, let us stay home and let us stay healthy!"
