Weekly COVID-19 blog, 15 July: the number of new cases remains stable at a low level

Twenty-one new cases have been found in the last fourteen days (between 30 June and 13 July).

Twenty-one new cases have been found in the last fourteen days (between 30 June and 13 July); the cumulative number of new cases per 100,000 people has been at 1.9 for the last two weeks.

The virus was contracted within the family circle in twelve cases (57.1% of the total), at work in two cases (9.5%), and came from abroad in four cases (19.0%). In three cases (14.3%), the origin of the infection remains unknown.

So far in July, three individuals have been hospitalised. As of 14 July 2020, a total of 1,435 people have recovered from the virus (71.2% of the total number of cases). In the case of 462 people, over 28 days have passed since they tested positive. As of 14 July, one patient was on a ventilator.

As of 14 July 2020, the number of cases which have been confirmed by laboratory tests is 2,015, while the number of cases per 100,000 people is 152.1. The first SARS-CoV-2 test was analysed in Estonia on 5 February. In total, 8.5% of the population of Estonia has been tested as of 14 July 2020. The test results have been positive in 1.8% of the cases; the percentage of positive test results has been at its highest in the case of Saare County (10,9%), Võru County (2,8%), and Pärnu County (2.0%).

Even though the number of infection cases is showing a declining trend, the risk has not disappeared. People should be especially careful when travelling. We would like to remind everyone to apply the usual hand hygiene measures and to stay at home if you show any signs of having contracted the disease (such as rhinitis, a cough, or a fever).
