Helsinki increases its coronavirus testing capacity
The demand for coronavirus advice and testing has increased over the summer. Helsinki is responding to this demand by increasing its testing capacity. Sufficient testing is important in identifying people who have been exposed to or contracted the virus and in preventing the epidemic from spreading.
Besides Kruununhaka, the City currently has its own coronavirus testing stations in Itäkeskus, Kannelmäki, Laakso and Malmi. A new testing station will also be opened in Jätkäsaari in the near future. HUSLAB is in charge of the testing and analysing the samples. HUS also has testing stations in Meilahti and in front of the New Children’s Hospital in Helsinki.
