As of Monday morning, a total of 104 COVID-19 patients have required hospitalisation

Monday morning saw a grand total of 104 COVID-19 patients who required hospitalisation. In week 36, an overall figure of 101 new cases of COVID-19 were registered by hospitals. Based on the results from wastewater monitoring in week 36, the spread of the virus is at the orange risk level to the extent of approximately 55% of the country.

Hanna Sepp, head of the Health Board’s Department of Infectious Diseases, said that 2,262 cases were added last week, of which 914 were laboratory-confirmed and 1,348 had been clinically diagnosed. ‘Characteristically for the beginning of the academic year, last week we witnessed an increase in new cases amongst school-age children, but the spread of the virus remains stable in general,’ explained Sepp, adding that the increase in the number of new cases in school-age children would have an impact over the next few weeks on the number of hospitalisation cases which could be connected with COVID-19.

As of Monday morning, a total of 104 people were in hospital due to COVID-19, of which one required intensive care. A total of 101 patients were hospitalised over the course of the week. When compared to the level for two weeks ago, the number of hospitalisation cases has increased significantly (by 31%), mainly due to the spread of the infection in hospitals. During the week, four deaths were added of individuals who were aged between 84 and 88.

During the week, a further 4,951 vaccine doses were administered, of which 296 were new vaccinations. A grand total of 478,472 people have received an additional or booster dose. Coverage of the entire Estonian population with two vaccine doses is at 63.6%.

Based on the results from the wastewater monitoring of settlements in week 36, the spread of viruses in Estonian wastewater is at approximately 55%, the orange risk level. Of all of the averaged sampling sites, the highest numbers of virus particles were detected in Ahtme. The lowest number of virus particles were detected in Võru and in the Viimsi-Muuga area. Compared to previous weeks, the percentage of samples which fall within the range of the red risk level has gradually been decreasing. In general, the number of virus particles in wastewater has dropped a little.
