A total of 1,282 new COVID-19 cases were reported in Finland between 28 June and 4 July. During the previous week the corresponding figure was around 960. The number of new cases has doubled compared to the preceding two-week period: during the past two weeks, the number of new cases totalled 2,240, while in the preceding two-week period, it was 1,093.
The weekly number of COVID-19 cases was at its lowest in week 24 (between 14 and 20 June), totalling around 530. The recent spike in COVID-19 cases is largely due to football fans returning from Russia after attending UEFA European Championship matches.
