The Finnish government has released a report on managing the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which identifies shortcomings in the work of the country’s cabinet ministers, RIA Novosti reports.
The study is based on personal interviews with government officials, senior officials, members of the pandemic crisis management coordination group, chancellors and members of parliament.
Deficiencies were found in the coordination and development of communication between government and external organizations.
“The crisis management organization needs to move faster. Clear models of management and organization are required, ”the document says.
At the same time, the overall assessment of the interviewed persons showed that the country’s authorities in the spring of 2020, on the whole, acted correctly. Communication with citizens, for example, was “clear, factual and transparent” and drew public attention to the severity of the crisis.
Note that more than 40 thousand cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded in Finland. Recently, a representative of the country’s Interior Ministry announced the authorities’ plans to introduce new restrictions on entry into the state in the near future.
