ERR News has rounded up the most important news and data about the coronavirus in Estonia from the last week and put it in one place.
This round-up is usually published on Monday or Tuesday, because the results for Sunday of the previous week are released on Monday morning, only making it possible to analyze the previous week's results after the data has been reported.
You can find the following graphs below:
- The total number of new cases diagnosed by week;
- New cases by day for June 7-13;
- New cases by county by week;
- New cases compared with deaths and hospital releases;
- Total number of positive and negative tests by week;
- Deaths of covid-positive patients by week;
- Number of coronavirus vaccine doses administered in Estonia by week.
