Results of antibody studies make epidemic forecasting difficult, says Salminen

EPIDEMIOLOGISTS and other experts are currently racking their brains on what the results of antibody studies really tell about the coronavirus epidemic, says Mika Salminen, the head of health security at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

Studies in Spain and Sweden suggest a smaller-than-expected share of the population – only 5–7 per cent – has developed antibodies against the virus, denting hopes that herd immunity would protect the countries from a second wave.

Kulmuni reiterates concern about commission’s €750bn recovery fund

MINISTER OF FINANCE Katri Kulmuni (Centre) says the European Commission’s proposal for a 750-billion-euro recovery fund contains a number of elements that should be investigated thoroughly.

“It is important that the crisis isn’t used as an excuse for distributing responsibility for countries’ own economic policies on everyone’s shoulders,” she stressed on YLE's A-studio on Wednesday.

Nordea: Finnish economy to contract 7% in 2020, expand 4% in 2021

THE FINNISH ECONOMY, along with several other economies, is gradually starting to recover from the nosedive triggered by the coronavirus pandemic and the consequent, almost overnight change in consumer behaviour, views Nordea.

The Nordic financial services provider states in its latest forecast that the economy will contract by seven per cent this year but recoup some of the losses with a growth spurt of four per cent next year.

Finnish parties divided over European Commission’s €750bn recovery fund

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION on Wednesday published its highly anticipated proposal for a stimulus package designed to help member states to get back on their feet after the blow delivered by the coronavirus pandemic.

Two-thirds of the massive, 750-billion-euro recovery fund would be disbursed in direct financial support and one-third in loans.

YTK on Wednesday revealed that it has already paid more than 56 million euros in unemployment benefits for April – 12 million euros more than one year earlier – despite the fact that some of the applications received last month have yet been processed.
