Despite the decrease in infection compared to previous weeks, there is still a high risk of the spread of coronavirus in Estonia. The average number of infection cases in the past seven days is 838. In accordance with the risk matrix, the risk level remains high if the average number of infection cases in the past seven days is 600–1,000. The average number of hospitalisations in the past seven days is 42.29 people. Both indicators remain on a downward trend. The average number of deaths from the coronavirus in the past seven days, which currently stands at 9.1 people, is also on a downward trend. The infection rate of people over 60 is also falling – the average number of infections in this age group in the past seven days is 160.4. The number of COVID-19 patients who have been placed on a ventilator is currently 24.

In the event of a high risk of the virus spreading, it is still very important to follow the established control measures: wear masks indoors, follow the dispersion requirements, and use disinfection facilities. The COVID certificate must be presented in public spaces where it is required. Vaccination is very effective in protecting against serious illness and hospitalisation.
