Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion on the 8th of May 2020

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a dai­ly meet­ing and updates the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture. The sit­u­a­tion is still calm in Soite’s area and the prepa­ra­tions pro­ceed accord­ing to plan.

The sit­u­a­tion is unchanged: no new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed today in Soite’s area. No coro­n­avirus patients are cared for on wards. Over­all, 17 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite, and all chains of infec­tion have been traced in Soite’s area.  The sit­u­a­tion is very calm on the coro­n­avirus clin­ic, in the infec­tion units and on the coro­n­avirus helpline. Coro­n­avirus tests are done with a low thresh­old when a per­son has symp­toms of the coronavirus.

The num­ber of coro­n­avirus tests is approx­i­mate­ly 1 400/100 000 inhab­i­tants in Soite’s area. It came to light this week, that there is a tech­ni­cal error on The Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL’s coro­n­avirus map, and that there is, there­fore, an incor­rect num­ber on the map when it comes to Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia. The prob­lem is being investigated.

The list on changes in the open­ing hours and oth­er changes in Soite was changed when it comes to ser­vices for the dis­abled. The list was changed as follows:
