Supermarket Photos From Lahti, Finland During the Epidemic
My impression is that no serious hoarding has taken place. Some shelves have been emptied for short periods of time but they have been re-stocked in short order. The city is about 100 km to the northeast of Helsinki. Uusimaa, the region the capital of which Helsinki (the national capital) is, is currently closed from all non-essential traffic. The nearest point of the region of Uusimaa is about 25 km from Lahti. Lahti has a population of 120,000. It is the regional capital of Päijänne Tavastia (pop. 200,000). One department of the University of Helsinki is in Lahti. In Lappeenranta, the regional capital of South Karelia, there is a university of technology. It has recently acquired the local polytechnic and the university was renamed Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology. 

The number of of undergraduate students of that university in the local filial is still quite low. But there are plans to start a joint venture with the University of Hebei in Tianjan, China, which would bring in hundreds of Chinese undergraduate students to the city in the early stage. If this venture had started a earlier, Lahti could be one of the national hot spots of the Covid-19 epidemic right now. 

So far, only one elderly person has died of Covid-19 in the local regional hospital. Only seven patients are hospitalized. 28 confirmed cases, 534 tests done. We're at an early stage.

This is what one large supermarket looks like:





Normally, there would be tissue and toilet paper packages in the middle as well. The sign apologized for supply difficulties.


The slot machines have been shut down.


This is from shopping mall. Quieter than normal.
