Infor­ma­tion on the 6th of April 2021 on the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture in Soite’s area when it comes to the coro­n­avirus epidemic

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area after the cas­es we informed about in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture on Soite’s coro­n­avirus web­site dur­ing the weekend.

The key fig­ures in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture have been updated:

  • The number of coronavirus cases during the last 14 days: 16 (the previous number was 15)
  • The incidence of infections during the last 14 days/100 000 citizens: 20.6 (the previous number was 19)
  • One person who has been infected with the coronavirus is cared for at the Central Ostrobothnia Central Hospital.
  • 0.9% of the coronavirus tests are positive. During week 13, 1461 coronavirus tests were taken in Soite.
  • The traceability of chains of infection is 80 %
  • The epidemiological situation in Central Ostrobothnia: base level

Keep­ing the coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion at the base lev­el requires every pos­si­ble safe­ty mea­sure and that every­one behaves respon­si­bly in their every­day life. Since most of the recent coro­n­avirus infec­tions are relat­ed to trav­el­ling and social gath­er­ings, we wish to remind every­one of the impor­tance of min­i­miz­ing social contacts!
