TALLINN - Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid joined the daily briefing of the government's communication center on Tuesday.

"Altogether 70 people from the public and private sector alike are contributing to the center's work to make sure that vital crisis-related information reaches the Estonian people. Considering the specific feature of the crisis, most communication specialists work remotely," the head of state wrote on social media.

The president said that in addition to over 100 media queries, emails, businesses offering support and inquiries, the center must also fight the spread of misinformation.

"In an uncertain situation, we all need clear messages, but there is much that is unknown in this crisis, thus we must work with the information we have now and hope our knowledge will grow with each passing day," Kaljulaid said.
