Vaccination situation in Finland
HS’s new graphics, which are usually updated on weekdays, follow the progress of vaccinations in different parts of Finland. The data are based on the Thl vaccination registry.

Infection situation in Finland
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 the graphics below, 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.

Correction 20.1. at 11.35. In the graphs for special areas of responsibility, incorrect population figures have been used for the KYS and OYS areas to calculate data relative to the population. Due to the error, the figures in relation to the population in the KYS area have been slightly higher than the real ones in the graphs and slightly lower than the real ones in the OYS area. The error has now been fixed. Correction 22.1. at 3:30 p.m. In the hospital care by special responsibility table, when looking at the numbers relative to the population, the number of patients was marked in the wrong colors, so that the colors in the graphics showed incorrectly high numbers for some special areas of responsibility. The error has now been fixed.
