Over last 24 hours 1,576 COVID-19 virus tests were analysed in Estonia, 1.6% of them, i.e. 25 tests came back positive.  In total, 37,594 coronavirus tests have been performed in Estonia, of which 1,459 i.e. 3.9% have shown positive results.

As of the morning of April 17, 129 patients require hospitalisation due to the novel coronavirus, 11 persons require ventilation. 145 people have been discharged. During the previous 24 h period, a 91-year old woman at Ida-Viru Central Hospital, and a 77-year old man at the North-Estonian Regional Hospital have died due to COVID-19. Total 38 people have died in Estonia due to the coronavirus.

According to the population register, the highest number of coronavirus cases were found in Harju County (9) and Saaremaa (6). Tartu County and Ida-Viru County had both four new positive cases. Today most of the cases are still in the age group 55-59 (11%), followed by 45-49 (10%), and 50-54 (10%).  Detailed statistical information of coronavirus testing is available at: www.koroonakaart.ee/en.

The Health Board recalls that the SARS-cov-2 virus also spreads to those who do not belong to the risk groups. About one third of the positive tests of the previous 24 hours came from people in the age group of 20-29yo, on April 16 more than a quarter of the positive cases were in the age group of 15-24yo.  Therefore, it is very important for all people to avoid contacts and observe the hygiene rules.

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 suspension of all regular, scheduled health care services outside the national network of hospitals. Private medical establishments and dental clinics will only provide emergency care. All scheduled 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 suspension would endanger the patient’s health.
