Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group informs on the 1st of April 2021

In the future, Soite’s coro­n­avirus task group has a meet­ing on Thurs­days and when need­ed. We will still pub­lish infor­ma­tion about the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture on Mon­days as well. The pre­pared­ness is in accor­dance with plan.

The sit­u­a­tion­al picture

Five new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The chains of infec­tions have been mapped and those close to the infect­ed per­sons who have been exposed have been con­tact traced.

Four of the coro­n­avirus cas­es are relat­ed to the same social gath­er­ing. The three pos­i­tive coro­n­avirus cas­es report­ed yes­ter­day are also relat­ed to this chain of infec­tion. In total, 78 peo­ple have been quarantined.

Soite’s Chief Physi­cian of Infec­tious Dis­eases strong­ly stress­es that the num­ber of close con­tacts should be reduced so that the region­al coro­na sit­u­a­tion does not wors­en and so that Soite can remain on the coro­n­avirus base level.

Over the past 14 days, a total of 15 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite and the inci­dence of infec­tions dur­ing the last 14 days is cur­rent­ly 19 /100,000 cit­i­zens The num­ber of coro­n­avirus infec­tions that have been con­firmed in Soite since the pan­dem­ic began is now 253. All the recent sources of infec­tion have been traced. One COVID-19 patient is cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s cen­tral hospital.
