HEALTH and according to statistics from the National Institute for Welfare (THL), 49 new coronavirus infections were reported in Finland on Thursday.
A total of 8,799 coronavirus infections have now been reported in Finland.
Most new infections were reported in Helsinki (13), Hämeenlinna (7) and Äänekoski (5).

As in Monday, there are still three patients in intensive care.
According to THL, no new deaths have occurred. A total of 339 people have died of the coronavirus disease in Finland.
MORE SPECIFIC INFORMATION The situation in Finland and the world can be found in the graphs below, which are usually updated once a day. In the case of Finland, infection data are usually updated at noon and hospital and death data are usually updated on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
Infection and death data for foreign countries are usually updated in the database during the night.

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.
The goal in Finland would be to test all symptomatic people. However, there have been severe congestion in the tests since the early autumn.
Health and the Department of Welfare (THL) recommends the use of face masks in certain situations.
The recommendation is valid in the area of hospital districts where coronary infections have occurred in the last two weeks. For this reason, HS has also switched to monitoring the number of infections in two weeks instead of one.
SYMPTOMS the development of the volume can be seen in the graph below.
It shows the number of people who responded to the Omaolo service who have been asked to turn to health care because of a possible coronavirus infection. Thus, for many of the respondents, the test later shows that the explanation of the symptoms is something else.
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.
According to THL, the age distribution of confirmed infections in Finland currently looks like this:
