Finland's government adds EUR 5.5 bln to state budget due to virus

HELSINKI, June 2 (Reuters) - Finland’s government said on Tuesday its fourth additional state budget this year amounts to 5.5 billion euros ($6.14 billion), agreed upon to shield the country from the economic and social blow caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

The five-party centre-left coalition said it would channel the additional funds to investments in infrastructure, education and healthcare among other things. ($1 = 0.8954 euros) (Reporting by Anne Kauranen Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
