The number of infections brought in from abroad is on the rise, with these cases accounting for approximately a fifth of all positive coronavirus tests recorded in Estonia last week.

The Health Board (Terviseamet) said on Wednesday people arriving from abroad gave a total of 31 positive coronavirus samples last week, which is slightly less than a fifth of all positive samples given last week.

Ten positive samples were given last week by passengers arriving from Germany, four from Russia and three from Ukraine.

Passengers from Moldova, Hungary, India and Italy all gave a positive coronavirus test on two occasions, and passengers from Finland, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Tunisia, Poland and Spain all on one occasion.
