No new cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed in the last 24 hours, official data shows. In total, 8 percent of the population has now been tested for COVID-19.

Data published on Koroonakaart shows 447 tests were carried out between 7 a.m. July 14 and 7 a.m. July 15.

Four people are being treated in hospital and there are estimated to be 26 active cases, one fewer than yesterday.

The number of cases remains at 2,016 and the number of deaths at 69. 

Health Board's weekly round-up

While the Health Board has stopped issuing daily updates, it does issue one update every week on Wednesdays. ERR News has published the update below: 

Twenty-one new cases have been found in the last fourteen days (between June 30 and July 13); the cumulative number of new cases per 100,000 people has been at 1.9 for the last two weeks.

The virus has been contracted within family circles in twelve cases (57.1 percent of the total), at work in two cases (9.5 percent), and came from abroad in four cases (19.0 percent). In three cases (14.3 percent), the origin of the infection remains unknown.

So far in July, three individuals have been hospitalised. As of July 14, 2020, a total of 1,435 people have recovered from the virus (71.2 percent of the total number of cases). In the case of 462 people, over 28 days have passed since they tested positive. As of 14 July, one patient was on a ventilator.

As of July 14, the number of cases which have been confirmed by laboratory tests is 2,015, while the number of cases per 100,000 people is 152.1. The first SARS-CoV-2 test was analysed in Estonia on 5 February.

In total, 8.5 percent of the population of Estonia has been tested as of July 14. The test results have been positive in 1.8 percent of the cases; the percentage of positive test results has been at its highest in the case of Saare County (10.9 percent), Võru County (2.8 percent), and Pärnu County (2.0 percent).

Even though the number of infection cases is showing a declining trend, the risk has not disappeared. People should be especially careful when travelling.

We would like to remind everyone to apply the usual hand hygiene measures and to stay at home if you show any signs of having contracted the disease (such as rhinitis, a cough, or a fever).
