Government should take further measures, say Foreigner.fi readers
Foreigner.fi will ask a different question about Finland and Finnish lifestyle every Friday on its official Twitter account @foreignerfi
Coronavirus cases increase every hour and every country takes measures against coronavirus. However, these decisions still do not stop the virus.
The Finnish Government took some measures, too but not as many as in other countries. Therefore, Foreigner.fi asked the readers in a Twitter poll, "Do you think the measures taken by the Finnish Government are sufficient to prevent the coronavirus spread?"
In the poll, respondents were given four options, which were 'Yes', 'No, a travel ban needed', 'No, send workers home’ and 'No, a curfew is needed'.
The mini poll was answered by 73 readers and 74% of the readers demand extra measures. 38.4% voted 'No, a travel ban needed'; 19.2 % voted 'No, a curfew is needed' and 16.4% said 'No, send workers home’. Only 24% of the readers voted 'Yes'.

Is impossible to safe people of the virus. Important is to help people in dangerous state or age. When there will be no vaccination, then after one or two years will be everyone after coronavirus illness.— Martin Srdoš (@MartinSrdos) March 13, 2020
Travel ban in itself will not bring any benefit. Finland is not testing enough so the virus is flying freely under the radar and we have a community spread. One traveler cannot infect anyone if country is in the lockdow.— Olga Z. (@OlgaZamurovic) March 15, 2020
We will have to lock down sooner or later and sooner will be cheaper in every respect— Olga Z. (@OlgaZamurovic) March 15, 2020
