  • As earlier, infections have mostly been found in young adults.
  • In infection tracking, the infection source remains unclear in 25% of the cases.
  • Sampling capacity is currently sufficient. The analytics delay is also shortening, but it is still well above one day.

30 September 2020 update:

  • The infection rate in Helsinki is clearly accelerating. Some 26 lab-confirmed cases per day have been diagnosed over the last two weeks, rising to 34 cases per day in the last week.
  • Incidents of infection and exposure are distributed quite evenly throughout the different areas of the city in relation to population density.
  • Infections in young adults have accounted for most of the recent diagnoses, with 20-24 year olds accounting for 23% of new infections.
  • Approximately 1,300 covid-19 tests are being administered every day in Helsinki. HUSLAB laboratories have diagnosed about 1.5% as positive.
  • Testing is currently widely available, with no wait. The addition of a new sampling station at the Malmi Airport, which opened on 30 September, has improved the city’s testing capacity significantly.
  • Analysis of the test samples currently takes around 40 hours, so people who have attended tests have had to wait an average of 2 days for results.
  • Teens and young adults have been turning out in large numbers to attend covid-19 tests. Young people between the ages of 10 and 24 have sought out testing significantly more than other age groups.
