Health Board: Three new COVID-19 cases found in Estonia
Three new cases of COVID-19 coronavirus were detected in Estonia in the past 24 hours, the Health Board said on Friday.
Two of the new cases were related to the same food company, Lunden Food OÜ in Harju County, which reported an outbreak last week.
Of these two, one was an employee at Lunden and the other contracted the virus from a family member who worked there.
Coronavirus breakdown as of June 19:
- Three new cases was detected in the past 24 hours, two in Tallinn and one in Ida-Viru County,
- 1,358 tests were conducted.
- No deaths related to COVID-19 were reported.
- 10 people are currently hospitalized due to COVID-19, one of whom is on a ventilator.

*While yesterday's total number of cases stood at 1,977, and three new cases were reported, one earlier positive result reported from Põlva County in statistics for June 16 has since been deleted from the record, meaning the net increase was only two in the past 24 hours.
