In a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the Estonian government declared a state of emergency today that will stay in effect until 1 May 2020.  Estonia’s borders will remain open with certain measures in place. There are currently 79 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Estonia.

Shoppers were surprised to find empty shelves in Tallinn today. Supermarkets haven't looked like that since 1992.
