The coronavirus death toll in Finland has increased to 308 as one more person died in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS) in the last 24 hours, said the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) on Monday.

So far, a total of 253 people have died in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Hospital District (HUS), 25 in the Pohjois-Savo Hospital District (KYS), 15 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.

Meanwhile, the total number of coronavirus infection cases in the country has increased to 6 599 as 20 more cases had been diagnosed in the 24 hours until Monday afternoon, said the THL.

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 5,100 patients have recovered from the disease.

Presently, 104 coronavirus patients are undergoing treatment in different hospitals, including 18 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.
