The  Latest Information

  • The first death in Finland has been reported, an elderly woman from the southern part of the country. 
  • 521 confirmed cases in Finland, 71 more than yesterday. It was up 50 yesterday, 41 the day before, so this is accelerating.
  • Prime Minister Sanna Marin is prepared to restrict movement from the capital city of Helsinki and the surrounding metropolitan area due to the majority of new cases originating there. Whether this will include a lockdown within the city, or simply halt travel in and out, remains unclear.
  • Starting next week, workers who commute from Estonia will be barred from entering Finland. The Estonian capital of Tallinn is just across the gulf from Helsinki, and ferries run regularly between the two cities.
