– The disease is growing enormously now, says Johan Styrud and continues:

– Everyone who has a cold is basically positive. If you then have waiting times of maybe up to a week before you get an answer to testing, it becomes meaningless. If you have a cold today, you should assume that you are ill and stay in the waiting period.

Johan Styrud believes that it is time to reduce the mass test for covid-19 among the population and try to get a more focused use of the resources.

– It is better to gather the test capacity we have for healthcare, for elderly care and where it is important to know exactly, he says.

– If you have a cold, you are ill in omicron. Start from that, Styrud concludes.
