Finland eases rules for restaurant food sales as virus slows down

HELSINKI, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Finland’s government said on Thursday it would lift its restrictions on opening hours for restaurants serving mainly food but kept stricter rules on bars and nightclubs in place, as the COVID-19 pandemic showed signs of slowing down in the Nordic country.

Earlier on Thursday, Finnish health authorities said the earlier rise in the number of new COVID-19 cases had levelled off and the numbers even seemed to be decreasing slightly. (Reporting by Anne Kauranen; Editing by Alison Williams)
