The Finnish government has declared a state of emergency due to an increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection, Reuters reported.
The introduction of the state of emergency will allow the authorities to introduce a number of measures, including temporarily closing restaurants and schools and restricting movement between regions.
вЂњThe government considers it necessary for all of us to have fewer contacts. Now everyone has the opportunity to influence how spring and summer turn out, вЂќ said Finnish Prime Minister Sana Marin.
Over the past two weeks, several regions of the country have seen a rapid increase in the number of people infected with the coronavirus. Outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported in ski resorts in Lapland, as well as among workers in shipyards and construction sites, Reuters noted.
