The coronavirus situation in Finland is still calm, according to the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

The number of infections detected has continued to decline compared to the previous two weeks. Last week, the incidence of new cases was 0.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

At present, more than 13,000 samples per day can be taken in laboratories, which is above the target of 10,000 samples set by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.

In the last week of follow-up, more coronavirus tests have been performed than in the previous two weeks. The proportion of positive cases in the samples tested has continued to decline.

To date, a total of 7,296 cases of infection have been diagnosed in Finland. 328 disease-related deaths have been reported.

On Wednesday, there were a total of seven patients in hospital, none of whom are in intensive care. The number of patients in hospital has fallen sharply from April and May and leveled off in recent weeks.

As a few case clusters and exposures to infection have been observed among seasonal workers, THL is closely monitoring the development of the situation and the impact of control measures in cooperation with regional health authorities.
