Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 8th of April 2021

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a meet­ing on Thurs­days and when need­ed. The pre­pared­ness is in accor­dance with plan.

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

Two new coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The infec­tions are con­nect­ed to an ear­li­er chain of infec­tion and the infect­ed per­sons were already in quar­an­tine. No new per­sons have thus been exposed to the virus. The infec­tions in the chain have been con­firmed to have been caused by the British variant.

No patients with COVID-19 are treat­ed at the moment at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

The inci­dence num­bers when it comes to the coro­n­avirus have not changed: In the last 14 days, 16 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area and the inci­dence is cur­rent­ly 20.6/100 000 cit­i­zens in the last 14 days. All recent sources of infec­tion have been traced.

0.5% of the coro­n­avirus tests are cur­rent­ly positive.

In all, 260 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite since the pan­dem­ic began. One case that has been con­firmed as a false pos­i­tive has been cor­rect­ed in Soite’s statistics.
