Two new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) were diagnosed in Estonia in the last day, official data published by koroonakaart.ee shows. In total, 598 tests were administered.

A total of 109,980 tests have been carried out in Estonia, of which 1,995 have been confirmed for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

As of Tuesday morning, three people are being treated in hospital and there are estimated to be 13 active cases, same as yesterday. So far, 391 people have been discharged from hospital.

There were no deaths reported in the last day, keeping the total at 69. The last death recorded was over a month ago, on June 2.

To see more data visit koroonakaart.ee, which is continuing to analyze and publish the daily data in English, Russian and Estonian.

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.
