The coro­n­avirus appli­ca­tion Koron­av­ilkku will be tak­en into use in Cen­tral Ostrobothnia

The Koron­av­ilkku appli­ca­tion is tak­en into use in the whole of Fin­land to help trace chains of coro­n­avirus infec­tion. The appli­ca­tion has been added to app stores today Mon­day 31st August 2020. With the help of the appli­ca­tion, peo­ple can take part in pre­vent­ing the virus from spread­ing and in pro­tect­ing their own health and the health of their loved ones. 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.

Via Koron­av­ilkku, a user of the app may be informed of a pos­si­ble expo­sure and get infor­ma­tion on how to act. Most impor­tant­ly, a user of the app may anony­mous­ly noti­fy oth­ers of their infec­tion and thus help break chains of infec­tion. An app user who has been noti­fied of a pos­si­ble expo­sure may ask a health care pro­fes­sion­al to con­tact them or may con­tact the health care themselves.

We have added instruc­tions on Soite’s web­site on how to act if the Koron­av­ilkku appli­ca­tion noti­fies of an expo­sure to an infec­tion.

  • If you have no symptoms, you do not need to contact Soite right away. Instead, you can wait and see if you get symptoms.
  • If you have symptoms that fit the coronavirus (symptoms of the cold, fever, stomach symptoms), you should make a symptom check-up in the application Omaolo or call Soite’s helpline on the coronavirus, 06 828 7499 (open every day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or other times the common emergency clinic,  06 826 4500 or Soite’s paediatric emergency clinic 06 826 4444.

The Koron­av­ilkku appli­ca­tion may be down­loaded free-of-charge from app stores  on smart­phones. Using the Koron­av­ilkku appli­ca­tion is vol­un­tary, but the more peo­ple down­load it, the more help­ful it will be. When the appli­ca­tion has been devel­oped, spe­cial care has been tak­en to?? basic rights, pri­va­cy pro­tec­tion and infor­ma­tion secu­ri­ty.
