As of Monday morning a total of seventy-one individuals are being treated in hospital due to symptomatic COVID-19

Monday morning sees seventy-one patients requiring hospital treatment due to symptomatic COVID-19. Hospitals opened sixty-four new COVID-19 cases in week 24. The incidence of COVID-19 cases has remained stable over the past week in all age groups over the age of sixty.

Hanna Sepp, head of the Health Board’s Department of Infectious Diseases, said that last week, a total of 822 of the overall number of 6,643 tests turned out to be positive. Amongst almost all age groups over the age of sixty, the incidence of COVID-19 cases has remained at a stable level when compared to last week’s figures,’ explained Sepp, adding that the infection ‘R’ rate is slightly under the ‘1’ figure (0.98). According to the hospitalisation risk matrix, the risk of coronavirus transmission is categorised as being at the low level.

The indicator for those who were hospitalised within the last seven days is 4.0. As of Monday morning, a total of seventy-one people were being treated in hospital, thirty-one of whom required hospitalisation due to symptomatic COVID-19. During the week, two deaths have been added of individuals who were infected by COVID-19. Those individuals were aged 81 and 84, and one of them had not been vaccinated. It is likely that the number of hospitalisation cases will remain around sixty for a while, but will start to increase again in July.

A total of 1,107 vaccine doses have been administered over the past week, with 318 individuals receiving their first injections. A grand total of 461,470 people received their additional or booster doses. Of the total population in Estonia, 63.7% have received two vaccine doses.

In week 24, concentrations of SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater are at the green level all across Estonia. The highest levels were found in samples from Otepää, Ahtme, and Tallinn, but the virus concentration levels in the samples was marginal.
