29 new positive COVID-19 tests results over the past 24 hours

Over the past 24 hours, 1709 COVID-19 virus tests were analysed in Estonia, of which 29 tests (1.7%) showed positive results. In total, 33 967 tests have been analysed in Estonia, of which 1400 (4.1%) have shown positive results.

According to the latest data from the morning of 15 April, 147 patients require hospitalisation in Estonia due to the novel coronavirus, of whom 10 are on ventilation. 117 people have been discharged from hospitals. Due to COVID-19, over the last 24 hours 3 people died in Estonia: a 79 year old woman being treated at the Ida-Viru Central Hospital, a 81 year old man at the Kuressaare Hospital, and a 65 year old man at the Pärnu Hospital. In addition, it has been determined that a 83 year old man, who died of complications on 10 April, was in fact COVID-19 positive. In total, 35 people have died due to the coronavirus in Estonia.

Based on data from the population register, the highest number of new coronavirus cases were found in Harju County (12) and Saare County (8), followed by Ida-Viru County (5) and Pärnu County (3). One positive case involves a person, whose information is not in the population register. According to the latest data, the highest number of infected persons continues to be seen in the 55-59 age group (11%), followed by 45-49 and 50-54 (10% each). More detailed statistics about the Coronavirus tests are available here:

As of yesterday, the case load of the Kuressaare Hospital will be shared with other Estonian hospitals. Two patients, a 57 and a 58 year old man, who had been on treatment at the Kuressaare Hospital, were transferred to the North Estonia Medical Centre. In addition, the Kuressaare Hospital now also has COVID-19 testing capacity, which will shorten the time required for obtaining test results from the previous 36-48 hours to 4 hours.

Due to the emergency situation in Estonia, a ban on visits applies to all social welfare institutions, hospitals and prisons until the preliminary date of 1 May 2020. To contain the further spread of the COVID-19 infection, all regular, planned health care outside of the national network of hospitals has been stopped. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. Regular treatments are stopped to contain the spread of the virus and in the interest of using personal protective equipment more economically. Regular treatments that have already been started will be reassessed by the doctor and patient, on a case-by-case basis. All regular treatments, whose cessation would endanger a patient’s health, will have to be carried out to their completion.
