Finland’s prime minister, Sanna Marin, has been receiving backlash from the public after it was revealed she stayed out clubbing until the wee hours of the morning last weekend despite knowing she had come into close contact with a Covid-19 positive minister.

According to The Straits Times, the Social Democrat leader has since issued an apology on Monday (6 December) after a gossip magazine published photos of her attending a Helsinki nightclub on Saturday night until almost 4am, hours after her Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto tested positive for the coronavirus.

“My husband and I… had been out to eat, been shopping in town, seen friends and also spent time (enjoying) the evening and nightlife,” she wrote on her Facebook.

She explained that she was told by an official that the coronavirus guidelines did not require her to isolate, despite having been in contact with an infected person.

“I should have used better judgment and double-checked the guidance given to me. I am very sorry for not understanding that I needed to do that.”

It has been reported that Finland has sustained some of Europe’s lowest incidences of the virus throughout the pandemic, recording more than 196,000 cases and 1,384 deaths in the country of 5.5 million.

However, infections are currently on an all-time high now, with 308 new cases per 100,000 population in the last fortnight as well as recording eight cases on the new Omricon variant.
