In mid-March, the covid situation was tough in Västerbotten.

At that time, a maximum of 76 people were cared for in hospital and 20 in IVA for covid.

The pressure on healthcare was strong.

The weekend's figures now show a continued decline, 24 people received care in hospital and 9 in IVA, a decrease of 4 people.

In general, the care situation is relatively good right now, not so overworked, according to Brita Winsa, director of health and medical care.

- What we are working hard on right now is to make sure that our staff have a holiday this summer, because they need it, she says.
