Two new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) were diagnosed in the last 24 hours in Estonia, data shows.

Official data uploaded to koroonakaart.ee shows 300 tests were analyzed in the last 24 hours. One case was diagnosed each in Harju and Ida-Viru counties.

There are 13 estimated active cases, one more than Sunday, and three people are being treated in hospital, which is the same as yesterday.

There were no deaths in the last 24 hours.

The data shows the figures published on Saturday for the previous 24 hours have been revised from two new cases to one. Figures published Sunday saw no new cases were recorded.

The total number of cases is 1,994.

The Health Board (Terviseamet) has stopped issuing daily briefings about the new number of cases diagnosed but ERR News will still report the figures. The Health Board will issue a press release if the figure hits five or above and will publish a weekly update every Wednesday.

Acting Health Board chief Mari-Anne Härma told ERR radio show "Vikerhommik" Monday morning the rate of new cases of coronavirus is now very small. The midsummer break and changes in travel restrictions have not had any noticeable effect on infection rates.

"The long-term downward trend has not changed, and midsummer has not provided any aftermath, so now there is reason to be calm," said Härma.
