- We have found two pieces that are infected with the delta variant so far here in the county.

We have traced them carefully, but there may be more cases that we do not know about yet, says Gunilla Persson, infection control doctor. 

There is currently no method for direct testing for "delta" in connection with someone testing positive for covid-19.

The variant is tested instead of afterwards, which means that it takes extra time before healthcare receives the results.

At the same time, there are indications that vaccines do not provide as good protection against the delta variant after the first dose, even if two doses provide good protection.

Now the Region Västerbotten has therefore tightened the rules of conduct in case someone you live with becomes infected.
