Jyrki Kosonen, CEO of Transport Kosonen Oy—the transport company that provided the bus—told MTV that while other passengers were careful to wear a mask, one commuter who chose not to use a mask was seen sneezing and coughing during the journey.

Kosonen emphasises that the company instructs customers to avoid travelling if they feel unwell or show any symptoms of the virus. It also recommends using a mask during journeys.

Of those that were infected, one person has been hospitalised and the others have reported mild symptoms. All passengers and crew that were aboard the bus in question have been quarantined.

Representatives from the Savonlinna Central Hospital believe that the infection originated within the country.
