The City of Helsinki has decided to expand the amount of timely coronavirus information it reports on its hel.fi website. Visitors to the site will now be able to check how many new infections have been diagnosed in Helsinki each day, how many people have visited coronavirus health stations, and Helsinki’s current percentage of the country’s total number of lab-confirmed cases.
“We want to provide more up-to-date and comprehensive data on the city’s coronavirus situation to our municipal residents, the media and other interested parties. Open and transparent data has always been a priority in Helsinki. It is also clear that the pandemic generates a great need for this kind of information among the public,” says the Mayor of Helsinki Jan Vapaavuori.
The ’Situation update on coronavirus – Helsinki’ website page already contains a map of coronavirus infections in Helsinki, with data for each of the city’s individual districts. The map depicting the number of coronavirus infections in Helsinki according to postal code is updated every second week.
The amount of people who have been exposed to the coronavirus at Helsinki area daycare facilities and schools will also now be updated on the site once a week.
To learn more, consult the city’s ‘Situation update on coronavirus – Helsinki’ website page. The page is part of the City of Helsinki’s ‘Coronavirus updates from Helsinki’ webpages, available at Coronavirus updates from Helsinki.
