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

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The source of the chain of infec­tion is cur­rent­ly being inves­ti­gat­ed. Those exposed have already been con­tact­ed and placed in quarantine.

Relat­ed to the infec­tion is a pos­si­ble coro­n­avirus expo­sure on the 16th of Jan­u­ary 2021 at the Lidl store on Strang­in­tie 1 in Inti­aanikylä in Kokko­la between 4 pm and 6 pm. We ask those who vis­it­ed the store dur­ing those hours to observe them­selves for symp­toms and to quick­ly seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing if symp­toms appear.

In total, 166 cas­es of coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in the hos­pi­tal dis­trict of Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia dur­ing the pan­dem­ic. Link: cur­rent sit­u­a­tion­al picture

To pre­vent the chains of infec­tion from spread­ing, it is very impor­tant that you seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing ear­ly, even if you have only very mild symptoms!

We can all impact the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion through our own actions and increase the like­li­hood that we do not infect our loved ones or oth­er peo­ple we meet.  There is still some dis­tance to go before every­one has been giv­en the vac­cine, so keep going just a lit­tle while yet!

Stop the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently
  • Cough in your sleeve or in a tissue
  • Keep a distance to other people
  • Use a mask
  • If you have symptoms, stay at home and seek out coronavirus testing early and even if you only have mild symptoms
  • Install and use the Koronavilkku coronavirus app
  • When it’s your turn, take the coronavirus vaccine.
