Exposure and infections in daycare centres, schools and educational institutions, 05 –  11 April 2021

The information is published next time on 21 April.

The table below lists the number of people at Helsinki daycare centres, schools and educational institutions who have been infected by or exposed to the novel coronavirus in the last week. The numbers of people exposed to them are also presented when the table is published. The information concerns the previous week.

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. All parents and guardians, students and staff have been informed about exposures at the city's daycare centres, schools and educational institutions accordingly. 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. Some 15,000 students are enrolled in upper secondary schools and 34,000 students in vocational education institutions.

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 24 March 2021

  • The infection counts of the last two weeks were the biggest during the epidemic so far. However, the increase appears to have been slightly slower during the last week.
  • Measured over the entire two-week period, the average daily infection count was 224. The average daily number of infections was 236 in the first half of the examination period and ca. 212 in the latter half.
  • The biggest absolute numbers of infected residents can be found in Kontula-Vesala and Etelä-Vuosaari. In proportion to population, the numbers of infected people are still above average in the Eastern and Northeastern parts of Helsinki. There are also other individual postal code areas with a higher concentration  of infections compared to surrounding areas.
  • At the moment, the proportional infection counts are highest in Puotila and Etelä-Vuosaari. However, Kontula-Vesala, Sörnäinen and Kaartinkaupunki follow these areas closely in terms of incidence rates.
  • In terms of age groups, infections are most common in people aged 20-39. In proportion to age group size, infections are most common among 0–29-year-olds.
  • On average, the infection source lives in the same household in 34% of the cases, but this number is particularly high in persons under 20: the corresponding percentage is 63% in persons aged 0-9 and 51% in those aged 10-19.
  • Infections in people whose mother tongue is other than Finnish or Swedish account for slightly over one third of all infections (currently 38%).
  • Currently the number of persons ordered to quarantine based on exposure in close contact is about 500–800 each day.
  • The availability of testing is currently at a good level. The test result is ready in a day in most cases (98%), the average time being less than 12 hours.
  • During the last two weeks, roughly 6.2% of the samples of Helsinki residents were positive. As regards overall border control, the corresponding figure is 2.0%.
  • Helsinki residents have sought out testing diligently and the number of tested persons has reached record heights. The daily sample count is almost 3,200. There have been individual days with almost 3,900 samples taken.
