Finland introduces new anti-coronavirus restrictions to curb increasing coronavirus transmission. On Monday, the National Assembly decided to close most cafes and restaurants.

The closure of restaurants will initially apply until March 28.

There will also be a halt in sports and leisure activities for children over the age of twelve and a digital teaching requirement for upper secondary school students.

As of Monday, gyms and sports halls also have to close their doors.

According to Johns Hopkins University, Finland has done relatively well through the pandemic, registering just over 62,000 coronavirus cases and 767 deaths.

But the infection has been spreading lately, and the spike is linked to the mutated virus variants.
