The current wave of omicron transformation Covid cases have shown signs of abating, with fewer infections and deaths recorded last week.
Despite this, the Minister of Social Affairs Who is Linden (SDP) said the Department of Family and Social Affairs is prepared for possible new waves of disease in the fall and winter.
"We probably have a Covid variant epidemic in the fall," Lindén told Parliament.
Lindén said she hopes that extensive restrictions on everyday life would not be necessary, suggesting that the widespread use of FFP2 and FFP3 masks is a better option.
Earlier this week, a group of experts made 54 recommendations to the ministry to prepare for a possible new wave of epidemic.
Vaccine age limit reduced
Lindén predicted that the general age limits for the fourth dose of Covid would fall by the fall, but awaited expert views on the subject.
Lindén was asked if this new variant could be a threat to the summer tourist season.
"Personally, I have not heard of such, but of course we all move more in the summer and then, of course, the diseases disappear. But then summer is the best time for Covid. The last two summers were clearly milder than the autumn and winter seasons," Linden replied.
