Minister of Family and Basic Services Krista Kiuru (sd) does not yet want to speculate on the introduction of the Emergency Preparedness Act. However, the pace areas need to be such that the result will come, he said in an interview with Yle’s Ykkösaamun on Saturday.
Family- and the Minister of Basic Services Krista Kiuru (sd) continued to patronize areas on Saturday for strict coronary action to prevent the spread of the disease.
“Tough action is needed and needs to be done regionally,” Kiuru said In an interview with Yle’s Ykkösaamun.
So far, Kiuru did not want to take a position on how close we are to the moment when the emergency law must be introduced again in Finland, as was done in the spring.
The contingency law would focus the fight against the coronavirus on the government, given the current competence in many places in the regions.
“At this point, it doesn’t make sense to speculate on what to do if the situation gets bad. Personally, I assume that we have agreed that in the autumn we will go according to normal law. And so we go, ”Kiuru said.
He noted that there are good examples of successes regionally.
“At the same time, it must be said that the pace must also be such that the result comes, because from the national point of view, ultimately, the responsibility that comes with the state then lies,” Kiuru said.
Kiuru was asked at Ykkösaamu what will happen if the result does not come, for example, in Uusimaa, where the coronavirus epidemic has progressed the most.
“Then, of course, even stronger drugs will be considered. It is clear that we cannot increase the number of diseases forever, we must reduce them. ”
Lark commented on Ykkösaamu as well new actions announced by the Helsinki Metropolitan Area Corona Coordination Group on Friday. He welcomed the fact that the measures were taken and that they would take effect throughout Uusimaa.
Kiuru has previously patted specifically for Uusimaa.
He was now asked whether Uusimaa had failed to deal with the disease situation.
“No, you can’t say that,” Kiuru said to Yle.
Corona Coordination Group announced on Friday that the metropolitan area was entering a phase of the coronavirus epidemic. The spread phase is most severe on the three-stage scale of the epidemic.
The biggest new restriction in Uusimaa is that indoor events for more than 20 people in the Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District (Hus) will be banned for three weeks from next Monday.
