Technical issues caused delay in COVID-19 figures reporting

The Health Board reported a technical glitch that saw no coronavirus testing data move between the SYNLAB laboratory and the digilugu.ee website since Sunday morning. This means that Sunday's coronavirus infection figures came in later in the day.

The Health Board usually shares the last 24 hours' coronavirus statistics at 10.30 a.m., while the technical problem had not yet been fixed by 1 p.m. on Sunday, which is why not all of the data has reached the digilugu.ee online environment.

Some people who were tested for the coronavirus in the last 24 hours are unable to check their test results.

Patients whose tests were analyzed at SYNLAB can verify their result using the testi.me mobile application, while those who paid for their test can visit the minu.synlab.ee website. Family doctors who referred patients for testing can also see results using their software.

Editor's note: This article was updated on Monday morning with more COVID-19 testing results from Sunday.
