Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 7th of Jan­u­ary 2021

Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a meet­ing on Mon­days, Thurs­days and when need­ed and it updates the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture. The pre­pared­ness is in accor­dance with plan.

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The chains of infec­tion have been traced and those exposed have been mapped. No patients with COVID-19 are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal. The num­ber of coro­n­avirus infec­tions in Soite’s are dur­ing the past 14 days is 6 and the inci­dence of infec­tions dur­ing the last 14 days is 7.7/100 000 citizens.

Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions have begun at Soite’s depart­ments. Cur­rent­ly, front­line work­ers work­ing in direct con­tact with coro­n­avirus patients are being vac­ci­nat­ed. Vac­ci­na­tions of the elder­ly as well as the per­son­nel at Soite’s care home units will begin dur­ing weeks 3 and 4. The vac­ci­na­tions at the care units cov­er about 2000 people.

The coro­na task group decid­ed that the activ­i­ty at Koivuhaka’s recep­tion will remain lim­it­ed until 7th of March 2021. This means that the doc­tor and nurse at the Koivuha­ka recep­tion will only receive patients who have pre-booked their appointments.

Dur­ing its meet­ing, the coro­na task group issued the direc­tive that the activ­i­ty at lab­o­ra­to­ry test sta­tions will be tem­porar­i­ly lim­it­ed between Jan­u­ary 18th 2021 and March 3rd 2021 as follows: 

  • The health station in Kälviä 3 days --> 2 days/week
  • The health station in Teerijärvi 3 days --> 2 days/week
  • The health station in Alaveteli 2 days --> 1 day/week

The deci­sion is based on NordLab’s announce­ment that it will reduce lab­o­ra­to­ry test activ­i­ty in Soite’s area in order to ensure the sup­ply of per­son­nel for the coro­na ana­lyt­ics. The reduc­tion of activ­i­ty at cer­tain units is based on a pre­vi­ous­ly made assess­ment of the vol­ume of tests and the need for ser­vice at the units.
