The highest number of infections occurred in Tampere (29 new infections) and Helsinki (19).

Infection situation in Finland

The map below shows the phase of the epidemic by hospital district. The situation may vary within hospital districts and the classification of individual municipalities may differ from the classification of the whole area.

MENTIONED BELOW The graphics show what the current infection situation in Finland looks like according to the THL Infectious Diseases Register. Infections are recorded in the register on the day of sampling. As it usually takes 2 to 4 days for samples to be completed and recorded, the figures for the most recent days will still change.

Especially in the early stages of the epidemic, not all coronavirus suspects were tested, so the number of confirmed infections does not fully describe exactly how many infections have actually occurred.

Currently, the goal in Finland would be to test all symptomatic people.

From below from the graphics, you can see how the infection situation has changed by municipality or hospital district. You can choose from the menu which municipality or hospital district you are interested in.

The graph shows the incidence, ie the number of infections in relation to the population. To view the number of infections without scaling, press the Absolute Numbers button below the graphic.

EVERYTHING the infection situation currently looks like this. THL does not publish data on municipalities where there are no infections or less than five infections throughout the epidemic.

Sometimes the figures in the infectious disease registry are also corrected retrospectively.

According to THL, the age distribution of confirmed infections in Finland currently looks like this:
