One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area

The sit­u­a­tion today

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The infec­tion is part of an ear­li­er chain of infec­tions. Three per­sons who have been infect­ed with the coro­n­avirus are cared for at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­n­ian Cen­tral Hospital. 

We ask all who have even just mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus to seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing. One should not move out­side the home even if one only has mild symptoms! 

We wish to remind every­one that coro­n­avirus tests asso­ci­at­ed with work or hol­i­day trav­el are done in the pri­vate sec­tor or in the occu­pa­tion­al health ser­vices. Soite’s infec­tion recep­tions (infek­tio­vas­taan­ot­to) and the pae­di­atric emer­gency clin­ic (las­ten päivystys) only take coro­n­avirus tests for per­sons with symp­toms of the coro­n­avirus and tests asso­ci­at­ed with enter­ing the country. 

Infor­ma­tion on the coro­n­avirus situation 

As of now, the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic in Soite’s area is updat­ed on Mon­days and Thurs­days. We will also inform when­ev­er the region­al COVID-19 group of author­i­ties has a meeting. 

We will inform about the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion out­side of the planned sched­ule only if the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture changes sig­nif­i­cant­ly. We will not, for exam­ple, inform about new coro­n­avirus cas­es that have been con­firmed dur­ing the week­end until after the week­end, unless the results are anom­alous in some way or cause a par­tic­u­lar risk.
