COVID-19 blog, 8 July: eight new positive test results have been added in the last 24 hours

The last 24 hours have seen a total of 581 initial tests being analysed in Estonia on the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19, with eight new positive test results being added.

Based on the data in the population register, three positive test results came from Ida-Viru County (two of which were from Narva), four from Harju County (two of which were from Tallinn), and one from Järva County. In three cases, the virus was contracted within the family circle. In two cases, the origin of the infection is currently unknown. In three cases, people were infected at a birthday party which was attended by a guest who had travelled from Russia with signs of the disease, and the remaining party guests will also be tested.

As of the morning of 8 July, three people in Estonia are being treated in hospital due to coronavirus, with one patient on a ventilator. There have been no new deaths in the past 24 hours. Coronavirus has claimed the lives of a total of 69 people in Estonia.

As of today, hospitals have closed COVID-19 cases in 391 cases which involved 378 people.

A total of 1,882 people have or are recovering from COVID-19 by today. The cases of 1,423 people have been closed (75.6% of the total) and, in the case of 459 people (24.4%), more than 28 days have passed since they tested positive and the individuals concerned are not being treated in hospital, meaning that they are awaiting confirmation of their recovery.

More than 110,000 initial tests have been analysed in Estonia, of which 2,003 or 1.8% of the total have been positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Detailed statistical data of the coronavirus tests is available at www.koroonakaart.ee/en.

The Health Board would like to remind people that they should continue to wash their hands carefully, staying at home when they feel unwell, and leaving enough space for their fellow citizens in order to prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-1 virus which causes COVID-19. Coronavirus primarily spreads from an infected person to healthy people via close contact. Close contact is classed as a situation in which two people are within two metres of each other for at least fifteen minutes.

COVID-19 is a droplet infection which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus spreading from one person to another as a result of sneezing and coughing or via contaminated surfaces and unwashed hands.
