Information on the coronavirus situation on the 7th of April 2020
Soite’s coronavirus task group has a daily meeting at 12 o’clock and updates the situation picture. The situation continues to be calm in Soite’s area and the preparations proceed according to plan.
No new coronavirus cases have been found today in Soite’s area. Overall, eight coronavirus infections have now been confirmed in Soite’s area. THL reports the coronavirus infections on its webpage according to home municipality irrespective of where the test was done. Soite reports the number that is registered to Central Ostrobothnia.
The situation is calm on the coronavirus helpline. The coronavirus clinic has been busier than during the weekend and about 30 tests have been done per day. Soite is getting its own coronavirus testing apparatus within approximately two weeks. Having a testing apparatus in Soite will speed up the testing process and makes it possible to increase the number of tests.
The task group also decided that entrance A2 at the Central Hospital is locked at Easter. A phone will be installed at the door to make it possible to contact a guard. The main entrance is locked in accordance with a previous decision (locked on weekdays from 4 p.m. and locked during weekends).
