Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 31st of August 2020

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a meet­ing on Mon­days and Thurs­days 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 24th of August 2020. Over­all, 33 coro­n­avirus infec­tions have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. 

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group wish­es to remind of THL’s instruc­tions con­cern­ing chil­dren with symp­toms of the cold:

“Once symp­toms are clear­ly sub­sid­ing, the child can go back to day-care or school even if the symp­toms have not com­plete­ly disappeared. 

Accord­ing to cur­rent data, small chil­dren have milder coro­n­avirus symp­toms than adults and they are less like­ly to pass the virus on than oth­ers. Few­er chil­dren than adults of work­ing age have been diag­nosed with coro­n­avirus infec­tions.” More infor­ma­tion in THL’s arti­cle.

The Koron­av­ilkku appli­ca­tion has been launched today in the whole of Fin­land The appli­ca­tion makes trac­ing those who have been exposed to the virus and break­ing the chains of infec­tion quick­er. Local instruc­tions on how to act if one has been exposed to the virus have been attached to the appli­ca­tion. More infor­ma­tion in the arti­cle.
