Information and advice on COVID-19
The number of COVID-19 infections has increased sharply over the past few weeks. There has also been a significant increase in the number of fatalities and the need for hospital care. The incidence of the disease is especially high among people who do not have adequate vaccination protection. The incidence among vaccinated people is also increasing as the virus continues to circulate through the population.
Given the current situation, it is essential to increase vaccination coverage and strengthen vaccine protection. We also need restrictions in order to prevent the further spread of infections.
We can all do our part to manage the COVID-19 epidemic in our country. Thank you for continuing to follow the restrictions and recommendations put in place by the authorities and for getting vaccinated.
