Finland lifts some corona restrictions ahead of schedule
Finland wants to lift some of the coronavirus restrictions early due to easing pressure on the healthcare system. “The burden on hospitals is still high, but the most severe cases are declining and there has been a turn for the better in intensive care units,” Health Minister Hanna Sarkkinen wrote on Twitter. From February 1st, the restrictions on events and companies will therefore be relaxed. As in the rest of Europe, new infections in Finland had recently increased significantly.
