The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area. The infec­tion is con­nect­ed to an ear­li­er chain of infec­tions and the infect­ed per­son was already in quar­an­tine. No new per­sons have thus been exposed to the virus.

The key fig­ures in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture have been updated:

  • The number of coronavirus cases during the last 14 days: 17 (the previous number was 16)
  • The incidence of infections during the last 14 days/100 000 citizens: 21.9 (the previous number was 20.6)
  • No patients with COVID-19 are treated at the Central Ostrobothnia Central Hospital.
  • 0.2% of the coronavirus tests are positive. During week 14, 1585 coronavirus tests were taken in Soite.
  • The traceability of the chains of infection is 80 %
  • The epidemiological situation in Central Ostrobothnia: base level

The coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions of the cit­i­zens are pro­gress­ing well in Soite’s area. Vac­ci­na­tions are now pro­gress­ing when it comes to all per­sons over the age of 65 and 18–64-year-old per­sons who belong to risk group 1 or 2 and have an ill­ness or con­di­tion that is very high­ly or high­ly pre­dis­pos­ing to severe coro­n­avirus disease.

The tele­phone book­ing for coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions opens again on Tues­day 13th of April 2021 at 12 p.m. and more appoint­ments are also opened in the elec­tron­ic Oma­hoito ser­vice on Tues­day at 12 p.m. Vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments are added to the elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing even at oth­er times if appoint­ments are can­celled or if the num­ber of vac­cines sud­den­ly increas­es. The Oma­hoito ser­vice is open 24/7. The days that still have appoint­ments avail­able are marked with green colour in the web calendar.

On Tues­day 13th of April, approx­i­mate­ly 3000 vac­cines become avail­able in the book­ing sys­tem, and at this point, about 5000 per­sons have the right to a vac­ci­na­tion in Soite’s area.

In all, 30.1% of the cit­i­zens in Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia health care dis­trict have now received their first vac­cine dose. When it comes to per­sons over the age of 70, 88% have received their first vac­cine dose.

Soite’s area has about 10 820 cit­i­zens who are 16–69 years old and belong to risk group 1 or 2. 40% of the per­sons in this group have now received their first vac­cine dose. Per­sons who belong to risk group 1 or 2 are no longer list­ed sep­a­rate­ly in Soite’s coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor as a per­son may belong to both groups at the same time.

Accord­ing to a pre­lim­i­nary plan, the coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions con­tin­ue in dif­fer­ent age groups with five-year inter­vals. Each age group that is to be vac­ci­nat­ed con­sists of about 5000 per­sons in Soite’s area. The fol­low­ing group that gets the right to a vac­ci­na­tion are 60–64-year-old per­sons. We will inform about vac­ci­na­tions for new groups more specif­i­cal­ly lat­er. Please fol­low Soite’s chan­nels on the web and in the social media as well as the local media in order to see when your age group has the right to a vaccination!
