The Public Health Agency of Sweden urges travelers from Great Britain and South Africa to get tested for covid-19

The Public Health Agency of Sweden urges all recent travelers from Great Britain or South Africa to Sweden to stay at home for a minimum of seven days, to avoid contact with others as far as possible, and to be tested as soon as possible after arrival (with follow-up tests five days after arrival). The rest of the household should also stay at home awaiting test results.

The reason for this is that a first case of the South African variant of covid-19 has been detected in Sweden. In addition, a total of eleven cases of the British virus variant have been found in Sweden. All twelve cases are related to people who have stayed and traveled from the countries mentioned.
