Prime Minister Sanna Marin from Finland apologized on Wednesday night after photos of her maskless dance at a nightclub surfaced on Saturday night, a day after she came into contact with a government official who had tested positive for the coronavirus.

“I have done wrong,” she said in a TV interview with public broadcaster Yle. “I should have considered the situation more carefully.”

Coronavirus restrictions in Finland, as in many European countries, have evolved and changed over the past two years. Currently, those who are doubly vaccinated, like Ms Marin, do not need to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who tests positive for the virus.

But separate guidelines for ministers and government employees recommend limiting social contact immediately after exposure, according to the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.

When images of Mme Marin at the disco, in Helsinki, were made public this week, they quickly went viral.

Write on FacebookMs Marin said an official told her the coronavirus rules did not require her to self-isolate, despite having come into contact with an infected person.

“I should have used better judgment and rechecked the advice given to me,” she wrote. “I’m so sorry I didn’t understand that I had to do this.”

Ms Marin has not tested positive for the virus.

Throughout the pandemic, Finland recorded one of the lowest infection rates in Europe. The country, with a population of around 5.5 million, has recorded around 196,000 cases of infection and 1,384 deaths, according to Our World in Data.

Ms. Marin, now 36, has become the the youngest sitting prime minister in the world when she was sworn in two years ago. She heads a remarkably feminine and young government: the other four major parties in government are led by women, three of whom, like the Prime Minister, are under 40 years old.
