Espoo’s coronavirus situation has deteriorated in recent weeks, as has the overall situation in the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS). The 14-day incidence rate, i.e. the number of new coronavirus infections per 100,000 residents, was 250 on 8 March 2021. A week earlier the figure was 200. The number is, however, lower than in Helsinki (413) and Vantaa (465).
