A total of 10 new cases of COVID-19 coronavirus were found in Estonia over the past 24 hours, the Health Board says. One case had been introduced from outside Estonia, the board adds.

961 primary tests were conducted during that time, making a positive rate of 0.1 percent.

Of the 10 cases, 5 were in Tartu County – three of these in Tartu city itself, scene of a recent, so far largely localized outbreak traced back to a carrier visiting a nightclub there on July 18.

Two cases came in Harju County (one of them in Tallinn), and the remaining three are unknown in terms of location – which is based on population registry data.

One case had been introduced to the country from Germany, the Health Board says, with the origins of the remainder not yet clear.

A total of nine people are in hospital due to the virus, with one on controlled breathing. No deaths have been reported.

A total of 63 people have died from causes relating to the coronavirus since the pandemic began, the last one reported over two months ago.

A total of 382 people have had their coronavirus hospital cases closed, across 395 cases (some individuals have more than one case associated with them, hence the discrepancy in numbers).

1,956 have been reported recovered from COVID-19 in Estonia, 1,482 have had their cases declared closed by family doctors and hospitals, the remaining 474 meet the criteria of having tested positive over 28 days ago and currently not being hospitalized related to the virus.

A total of 123,839 primary coronavirus tests have been administered since January 31, with 2,133 (1.7 percent) returning positive during that time.
