Prime minister Sanna Marin (sd) states that one possibility to target vaccines to the worst epidemic areas is to send individual batches to the metropolitan area, for example.
According to Marin, the government has agreed that once the at-risk groups have been vaccinated, it is ready to focus vaccines on the worst epidemic areas.
– How the weighting is done is still open, Marin said Mightily at the prime minister’s interview hour on Sunday afternoon.
However, according to Marin, vaccines are not helpful on a fast enough schedule.
“Vaccination rates are not yet such that they could reverse the epidemic,” says Marin.
In Finland 458 coronary infections were reported on Sunday.
The epidemic as a whole would seem to have leveled off, he said. The infection curve no longer looks upwards and restrictive measures have succeeded in curbing the situation.
However, according to Marin, the situation is still serious in the Helsinki metropolitan area and Turku. He also points out that the load on the medical side is only visible with a delay relative to infections.
Indeed, Marin continued to defend the need for tough restrictive measures.
– THL and STM have assessed, it is necessary to introduce restrictive measures, Marin said.
