Soite’s coro­n­avirus task force informs on the 20th of August 2020

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has meet­ings reg­u­lar­ly and updates the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture. The sit­u­a­tion is still fair­ly calm in Soite’s area and the prepa­ra­tions are pro­ceed­ing accord­ing to plan.

No new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in the recent days in Soite’s area. The lat­est case was con­firmed on the 20th of July 2020. Over­all, 32 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. 

A large num­ber of coro­n­avirus tests are done in Soite (clos­er to 200 per day) and a test is avail­able with­in a day as is rec­om­mend­ed. The goal is to analyse a major­i­ty of the tests at the lab­o­ra­to­ry at the cen­tral hos­pi­tal in Kokko­la, but some tests are sent to Oulu for analy­sis. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the lab­o­ra­to­ry in Oulu is very con­gest­ed, which is why some test results are received in Soite’s area after a delay of a few days.

Tip: On the Instruc­tions page on Soite’s web­site is a link to THL’s rec­om­men­da­tions on the use of face masks.
