Mutations are believed to have caused increased spread among children
The infection is spread at all ages, but mostly among people of working age and young adults. Compared with last autumn, there are also many more infected children and young people, which has led to distance education in more and more primary schools.
– It is not completely clear, but it gives the impression that it has a connection with the virus mutants, says Ingemar Hallèn.
How is the situation affected if the mutations are more contagious among young people who will not be vaccinated?
– It remains to be seen. We saw last summer that the season contributed to a general reduction and in combination with the vaccinations, I think it will do so this year.
