Coronavirus: Finland's socially-distanced lifestyle helps mitigate COVID-19

Global News

While many countries struggle with a second wave of the coronavirus, Finland has halted a rise in new infections at Europe's lowest level, helped by the fact that for Finns’ social distancing comes naturally. Its remote Nordic location and being one of Europe's lowest population densities, play in its favour in the fight against COVID-19. It also helps that many Finns like personal space and solitude. Mika Salminen, director at Finland's public health authority THL, said Finns like to keep people at least a meter away ''or we start feeling uncomfortable.'' On Sunday, Finland's 14-day cumulative number of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants stood at 54.2. The European average is around 576 and worst-hit Luxembourg 1302.8 cases, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control data showed. Around 2.5 million of 5.5 million Finns have voluntarily downloaded the government's contact tracing app, a rate that far eclipses the rate seen in many other European nations.
