Last week, the government announced that the audience limit, which had been 50 spectators, would be raised to 300 people from 1 October.

But it will not be so everywhere in Sweden.

The day before yesterday, Region Skåne decided to keep the rule of a maximum of 50 people at an event.

The spread of infection is increasing

Today, the same message came from three more regions: Stockholm, Uppsala and Östergötland.

The reason is the increased spread of infection.

- The situation is serious and even though most people are slightly ill, we must go in now and understand that we must change our behavior so that it does not happen in the hospitals again as it was in March-April.

The best thing we can do is keep a physical distance, says Maria Rotzén Östlund, acting infection control doctor, Stockholm region at a press conference.

In the three regions that today received special advice, everyone is also advised against participating in, for example, sports training, matches and competitions.

However, this does not apply to sports training for children and young people born in 2005 or later.

In the regions that have previously made similar recommendations, however, this has not been the case for elite athletes.
