A record number of new coronavirus infections have occurred in Jyväskylä today. Today on 27 January at 5.30 p.m., there are already 81 infections. (The data received at 3 p.m. showed 52 infections.) More than half of the infections are caused by a COVID-19 exposure in a restaurant last week. The number of infections per day is already the highest to date since the coronavirus epidemic began in Jyväskylä. From last Friday to today, the number of infections is 112.

With the infections that have occurred today, the number of people in quarantine will increase to over 1,000 people. 

Today's high number of infections is due the mass exposure in restaurant premises last week. The restaurant hosted an event for students on Thursday 21 February having approximately 150 people.
