The total number of coronavirus infection cases in the country has increased to 6568 as 31 more cases had been diagnosed in the 24 hours until Saturday afternoon, said the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus deaths in Finland remained unchanged at 306 as no new death had been reported in the two days until Saturday.

So far a total of 252 people have died in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS), 25 in the Pohjois-Savo Hospital District (KYS), 14 in the Turku Hospital District (TYKS), 12 in the Pohjois-Pohjanmaa Hospital District (OYS), and three in the Tampere-Pirkanmaa (TAYS) Hospital District.

The identities of the deceased, however, could not be known as the THL did not divulge any details about them.

The number of coronavirus infections in Finland is likely to be much higher than is reported, as not all those with mild symptoms have been tested thus far and there is no data available on asymptomatic infections.

So far more than 5,000 patients have recovered from the disease.

Presently, 104 coronavirus patients are undergoing treatment in different hospitals, including 21 in intensive care units.

Currently, laboratories are testing about 9,600 samples a day.

According to the THL report, in relation to Finland’s total population (5,543,233), the prevalence of cases is 119 cases per 100,000 people.
