1) The number of tests shows the total number of PCR tests, that are analyzed. Some people have had multiple tests done per day and some people have been tested several times. 

2) Deaths = the statistics on fatalities include deaths recorded within 30 days of the detection of COVID-19 infection in the individual on the basis of PCR tests. COVID19 is not necessarily the cause of death. 

3) Hospitalised = the statistic on how many beds in intensive care units - and on other wards in the regions - that are taken up by laboratory-confirmed COVID-19-cases via PCR at 7 a.m. each day include persons who are COVID positive, They are hospitalised due to COVID-19 symptoms or because of other illnesses. The patients may vary on different days. The validity of the information regarding the stated number people on ventilator is with reservation.

As of 17 June 2020, the figures regarding hospitalised patients, including patients in intensive care and patients in intensive care and on a ventilator are calculated using a new method. Henceforth, COVID-19-related admissions to hospital are defined as admissions that begin within 14 days of the first positive sample sampling date. In addition, the definition is updated so that hospitalisation is delineated at 90 days after the first positive sample sampling date.
