    Cur­rent coro­n­avirus infor­ma­tion in Soite’s area on the 14th of March 2022 – the num­ber of coro­n­avirus infec­tions is on an all-time high in Soite’s area

    The num­ber of coro­n­avirus cas­es is still very high in Soite’s area. The need of hos­pi­tal care is also still great. Dur­ing last week (week 10), 1,069 new coro­n­avirus cas­es were con­firmed in Soite’s tests. This is the high­est num­ber that has been con­firmed by Soite in a week dur­ing the pan­dem­ic. Last week, 1,900 coro­n­avirus tests were tak­en. The share of pos­i­tive test results was 55%. Pos­i­tive results in home tests are not includ­ed in these num­bers, and the real num­ber is thus even high­er. The risk of infec­tion is cur­rent­ly very high in Soite’s area and that is why we con­tin­ue to remind of the impor­tance of safe­ty mea­sures asso­ci­at­ed with the coronavirus.
