Helsinki has published this information weekly as of 23 September 2020. Information is not provided about small schools and daycare centres to protect people's privacy (*). The table is updated every Wednesday.

Those people who have been exposed have been ordered into quarantine.

The total number of children in Finnish and Swedish-language daycare centres in Helsinki (municipal and private) is 30,200. There are 44,260 children who attend municipal Finnish and Swedish-language comprehensive schools, and 10,400 more attend private or state equivalents, bringing the total number of comprehensive school students in the city to 54,660.

Measures to curb the coronavirus epidemic have been put into practice in Helsinki daycare centres, schools and educational institutions. As of February 2021, one out of every one hundred exposed persons has contracted the infection  in the city's daycare centres and schools. It is important that everyone continues to comply with the current safety guidelines, as well as the recommendations and restrictions effective in the area.

Observations 10 February 2021:

  • Within the past two weeks, the infectious disease situation has declined.
  • Where there was an average of 80 cases a day during the first week of the monitoring period, approximately 104 daily cases were recorded during the later week.
  • The case numbers were highest in the large postal code areas in the east in Kontula and Vuosaari. When the infections are viewed in proportion to the population, East Helsinki is not similarly ahead of other areas.
  • From a proportional perspective, the prevalence of infections is currently highest among residents of Itä-Pasila. This is explained by infections found among students. People have been commendably active in getting tested, and hundreds of students have been screened.
  • In terms of age groups, infections are clearly most common among 20–25-year-olds, in proportion to the size of the age group. This is partially due to infections among students. In other age groups, the prevalence of infections is steady across all groups from children to 60-year-olds.
  • The infection counts in people whose mother tongue is other than Finnish or Swedish are slightly higher than before, accounting for slightly more than one third of all infections (currently 39%).
  • Currently the number of persons ordered to quarantine based on exposure in close contact is about 300–500 a day, but for individual days, the exposure count has occasionally exceeded 600.
  • The number of exposures is naturally affected by the number of infections but also the broader definition of exposure in the context of suspected new variants of the coronavirus.
  • As regards infection tracking, lockdown fatigue is evident. Lapses in compliance with restrictions will lead to higher exposure counts.
  • At the moment, testing is available immediately. The test result is ready in a day in most cases, the average time being 13 hours.
  • During the last two weeks, roughly 3.6% of the samples of Helsinki residents have been positive. As regards airport tests and overall border control, the corresponding figures are 2.6% and 1.3%, respectively.
  • People are currently more active than before in getting tested. Some 2,300 samples are collected each day, up to an occasional daily high of almost 3,000 (2,982 samples were collected on 8.2.2021).
