Clarification of the Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre (TEHIK) regarding the data.

In the statistics published today, one of the previous positive test results in the Saare County was added to the statistical information of April 3, instead of March 29, due to the correction of data made by the laboratory. On 3 April, the laboratory received a previous positive sample which had been taken on March 28, previously dated as March 29. Corrections were introduced retrospectively.

The providers of health care services have the right to correct, modify and nullify the documents retrospectively. In co-operation with the providers of the health care services, TEHIK will clarify the rules on improved quality control.

Due to the emergency situation in Estonia, the prohibition to visit applies to all social welfare institutions, hospitals and detention facilities until the preliminary date of 1 May 2020.  To contain further spread of the COVID-19 infection, the Health Board ordered the cessation of all regular, planned health care services outside the national network of hospitals. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. All planned treatments will be suspended to contain the spread of the virus and in the interest of using personal protective equipment more economically. Continuation of planned treatments, which have already been started, will be reassessed by the doctor and patient, on a case-by-case basis. All planned treatments will need to be carried out if the cessation would endanger the patient’s health.

Additional information can be found on the Health Board website on coronavirus: www.terviseamet.ee/uuskoroonaviirus and on the Health Board Facebook page.  Questions regarding the emergency situation will be answered on the Government website: www.valitsus.ee/et/eriolukord#KKK.
