- It is not long since we established the system we now use for the regions in Sweden, and we have to let such systems seem a bit over time. It is quite complex, and many regions to take into account. We will be sure that we have a good enough data before we can provide such travel advice for other regions, said the director of the FHI, Are Stuwitz Berg, in a press conference.
