The total of 613,903 infected people currently represents 46.19 percent of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding February 5th, 2023, was 156, for a 7-day incidence of 11.7 cases per 100,000 population. In the same week, eight people died from (or with) COVID-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.5 percent in Estonia.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 2.19 million vaccine doses have been administered as of January 22nd, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 844,769 people who have received at least one vaccination (63.6 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 486,287 people (36.6 percent).
835,676 of these are considered fully vaccinated in Estonia (= 62.9 percent).
This means that Estonia is only in the middle of the field in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 112 countries.

Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Estonia is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 4.6 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 4,610 physicians in Estonia, there are about 3.47 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Due to the low level of care, the mortality of major known diseases can only be reduced in comparatively few cases. According to current information, about 15 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) still die.
