A new research project in Region Uppsala hopes to uncover outbreaks of Covid-19 in the county before they grow too big.

CRUSH Covid is a collaboration between the region and Uppsala University to detect local hotspots at an early stage and limit their spread as much as they can.

Region Uppsala is experiencing an intense outbreak of the coronavirus right now, so much so that health officials this week used local recommendations to urge residents not to socialise with anyone outside their own household for the next two weeks.

Press play to year more.
