What is the Current Coronavirus Situation in Finland?

The Coronavirus pandemic struck the entire world at the start of 2020, till today, there are thousands of confirmed death cases still piling up. The virus has affected almost every human in the world, either by restricting movement, business, or schools. Everyone has had a taste of the bad hands of the virus. However, Finland from the onset never suffered the same fate as the rest of the other countries in Europe. Reviews on suomiarvostelut.fi/ has shown that the Finnish government has tackled and kept the virus at bay in Finland. Although there are still cases of the virus in Finland, the death toll is quite low (which is good).

Aviation company, Skytours, have made some flights to Finland quite cheap. Although, they are strictly adhering to the Finnish government guidelines. Finland has managed to curb the virus better than other countries, having a total of 399 deaths and a few over 20,000 cases. The world watches and plans to learn how Finland did it. Regardless, a second wave of the virus looms in the air of Finland, and the world trusts the government of the country to be able to curtail it as best as they can.

As of today, the total number of recorded Coronavirus cases worldwide is 63.8M, with 41M recovered and 1.48M dead. Finland is recording for the entire pandemic with a total case of 25,462, having 16,800 recovered and 399 deaths. Recorded active cases have several 8,263, of which 99.8% (8,245) are experiencing mild conditions. About 0.2% (roughly 18 persons) are in a serious or critical state, battling the virus.

With the second wave, it is expected that the cases might rise to a higher number. Regardless, the Finnish government could handle it properly as they once did. Some ways they handled it include, reacting very swiftly (back in spring, when it started, they quickly went into battle). Another way was with the Coronavirus app, which was well accepted by the Finnish. As with the rest of the world, the lockdown technique, no going out, no virus! Technological advancement also played a role, a lot of people had to settle for working and schooling from home.

The Coronavirus pandemic has not only changed the behavior of consumers but increased the amount of time people spend in their homes. Finns were recorded to have made the quickest move to teleworking in Europe, and a 75% record was found that employees switched to home office entirely. The mandatory wearing of a face mask was less common in Finland. Right now, not all Finns are seen as being on a face mask. But, it is recommended that they all wear to reduce the spread or even eliminate the virus.

The best time to travel to Finland amidst the Coronavirus pandemic in the county is still unclear. As of November 19th, 2020, the government of Finland extended the travel restrictions (entry) to the 13th of December 2020. This restriction applies to non-Schengen and Schengen EU countries and the United Kingdom. The date might be extended if there is no evident progress to the resolution of the virus. For now, no good time to make the trip, however, for the coming year, going to Finland during the summer is always a wonderful time for tourists. They get to enjoy the glory of the country at its finest. Regardless, should the restriction be removed earlier, guidelines will be given by the Finnish government, and you will have to follow it to get into the country. If you are a traveler from The Vatican, Australia, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, South Korea, and Thailand, the Finnish government allows for leisure travel; as long as the instructions are followed.
