Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin questions the Capital Region’s decision to return to regular education in upper secondary education and vocational training in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.
– The decision is directly irresponsible, says Marin in an interview in Yle Radio Suomi.
She says she understands the concerns for the young people’s well-being, but does not believe that it is time to ease the restrictions as virus variants are spreading in the capital region.
Marin also believes that it may be worth discussing faster vaccination in areas where the infection situation is worse in order to overcome the spread of infection in the country. But at present there is no reason to change the vaccination scheme, according to the Finnish Prime Minister.
– It can be a question of an epidemiological assessment, to look at where many people meet, she says.
Since the start of the pandemic, Finland has registered more than 50,000 cases of covid-19 and more than 700 people with the virus have died. The country has just over 5.5 million inhabitants.
