Government to review strategic plan to combat coronavirus

The government will continue negotiations on Monday to update the COVID-19 response strategy.

According to the STT news agency, the government intends to consider first of all, in what situation should restrictions related to the phase of the spread of the coronavirus be introduced.

Ministers will discuss whether it is worth strengthening quarantine measures in those regions that are not yet at the stage of proliferation.

According to the STT, the negotiations will also focus on restrictions on sports and leisure activities for children and young people.

The government plans to revise the current response strategy in connection with new strains of coronavirus. There are more than 80 cases of infection with mutated COVID-19 variants in Finland.
