Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs — the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion is still con­cern­ing in the Soite area

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

The coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion in the Soite area is still con­cern­ing. Dur­ing last week (week 39), a total of 41 coro­n­avirus infec­tions were con­firmed in the Soite area. Most of those who were infect­ed were unvac­ci­nat­ed or had only received one vac­cine dose. Coro­n­avirus infec­tions are preva­lent main­ly among young peo­ple: par­tic­u­lar­ly in the age group 10 to 19 years old. Last week a total of 1,114 coro­n­avirus tests were tak­en and the share of pos­i­tive test results is 3.7 percent.

The key fig­ures in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture have been updated:

  • Infections during last week: 41 (a week ago 23)
  • In hospital care: 2 coronavirus patients
  • Number of infections in the last 14 days 64 (a week ago 61)
  • The incidence of infections during the last 14 days/100 000 citizens:  83 (a week ago 79)
  • 3.7 % of coronavirus test results are positive (a week ago 1.9 %)
  • Traceability of chains of infection 80 %

The list of pos­si­ble expo­sures has been updat­ed! Coro­n­avirus expo­sures may have occurred in the fol­low­ing places:

  • Monday 27th of September SC ROK gym 2 pm to 3 pm (the old part of the gym)
  • Friday 1st of October SC ROK gym 2 pm to 4 pm (the old part of the gym)

The list of pos­si­ble expo­sures has been updat­ed with the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion: https://korona.soite.fi/en/possible-exposures-to-covid-19/

We would like to remind every­one that the region­al strong face mask rec­om­men­da­tion is still in effect in Soite’s area as the num­ber of infec­tions is ris­ing and infec­tions occur main­ly among young peo­ple who are still unvac­ci­nat­ed or who have an incom­plete vac­ci­na­tion series. Use of face masks curbs the spread of infec­tions in schools and edu­ca­tion­al institutions.

Why should I take the coro­n­avirus vaccine?

  1. Coronavirus vaccines give effective protection against serious forms of COVID-19.
  2. The vaccines also protect against the long-term effects of COVID-19, the so-called long COVID, which may cause prolonged tiredness, shortness of breath, cough and joint and chest pain.
  3. By taking the vaccine, you can protect not only yourself but also others. The coronavirus vaccination significantly reduces the secretion of the virus and its spreading from one person to another.
  4. The risks associated with the vaccine are significantly smaller than those associated with coronavirus infection. Link: Information about the coronavirus vaccination
  5. With vaccinations, we can return to a more normal life and the need for restrictions is reduced. Everyone who decides to take the vaccine makes a difference.
