Explanation from the Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre

In the open source data, we publish the latest information, updated once every 24 hours, based on data from the health information system TIS. Healthcare service providers (including laboratories) have the option of making corrections, changes and cancellations to the submitted documents. Changing documents might be done, for example, in order to improve the quality of information. In such case, the laboratory’s information system sends a new version of the previously submitted document to the health information system, and the previous version is voided. Therefore, when it comes to the total number of results, it is not always possible to add the previous day’s total to the numbers submitted for the past 24 hours. Instead, on the timeline, the total is calculated as a sum total of the currently valid results.

The principle applies to negative as well as positive results.

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, unless otherwise decided by the government. To contain the further spread of the COVID-19 infection, the Health Board ordered the cessation of all regular, planned health care outside of the national network of hospitals. 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 definitely have to be carried out to their completion.

Additional information is available on the Health Board’s dedicated website and on the Health Board Facebook page. Questions about the emergency situation are answered on the government website.
