The Public Health Authority (FHM) estimates that the infection will increase for another two weeks, and that the spread will reach a peak at the end of January.
– We have reached levels of the number of cases that we have not been close to before, Tegnell said on Thursday.
The strong spread of infection is due to the virus variant omicron, which now dominates in Sweden.
The authorities have created two scenarios, and in both it seems that the peak of infection will be reached at the end of January. In one, it is estimated that around 47,000 cases will then be registered per day before the infection drops again. In the second, it is estimated that the number of cases will be around 69,000 at the highest. (© NTB)
