Seven new positive COVID-19 cases added over last 24 hours

Over last 24 hours 1,426 COVID-19 virus tests were analysed in Estonia, seven tests, i.e. 0.5% of them came back positive.  In total, 43,637 first time tests have been performed in Estonia, of which 1,559 i.e. 3.6% have shown positive results.

As of the morning of April 22, 114 patients require hospitalisation due to the novel coronavirus, 7 persons require ventilation. 184 people have been discharged. During the previous 24 h period   an 82-year old woman died at the North-Estonian Regional Hospital.  Total 44 people have died in Estonia due to the coronavirus.

According to the population register, five people who have received the positive diagnosis over 24 hours, live in Harju County. Rapla County and Saare County one new positive case each. Across age-groups, most infected persons are in the 45-59yo age group. Detailed statistical information of coronavirus testing is available at: www.terviseamet.ee/koroonakaart

In view of the current trend in the number of people diagnosed positive for COVID-19 and receiving in-patient care in Estonia, the restrictions on scheduled treatment imposed on hospitals, general medical care, special medical care and dental care providers due to the emergency situation are gradually abolished. The decision is based on the understanding that a long-term delay in planned treatment would inevitably have a negative impact on the health of many people. However, due to the continued spread of the infection, the provision of planned treatments must start gradually and strictly in accordance with all measures to control the infection. The most important prerequisite for the resuming of scheduled treatments is the existence of personal protective equipment and the treatment process which would protect from the transmission of the infection.   In co-operation with the Health Board, the emergency medical chiefs and the Estonian Society for Infectious Diseases, a guideline has been developed for the safe start of scheduled treatments.
