UPDATE: Case numbers have now reached over 800.
Sweden is continuing to see an increase in the number of people affected by Tularemia this year.
At present there have been around 700 cases reported, and we are only just entering September. This is a much higher number than one of the previous high number years which saw 859 cases in a 12 month period in 2015. There has been a recent slowdown in cases reported, but there are still an unusually high number of people falling sick.
