The coronavirus situation has reduced visits to maternity and child health clinics. When the coronavirus-related restrictions came into force, staff in many municipalities were transferred from preventive services for children and families to other tasks. The provision of maternity and child health clinic services was limited to pregnant women and infants.

At the beginning of April, maternity clinic visits had fallen by 27 per cent and child health clinic visits had fallen by 45 per cent from the corresponding period of the previous year.
