Finland PM quarantined as virus precaution

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin will work remotely after an employee at her official residence was discovered to have been in contact with someone infected with the coronavirus.

The move was a precautionary measure, the prime minister’s office said on Thursday.

Neither Marin nor the employee have any symptoms, but Marin was being tested.

The employee was in quarantine, but has not been in contact with the prime minister, Marin’s family or the prime minister’s closest advisors.

The government said the possibility of exposure is extremely low and that Marin was to work as normal using video conferencing and other technical solutions.

Finland has recorded nearly 4300 cases of the coronavirus and 155 fatalities.
