Coughing cough, which is actually a collective name of several viruses or different bacteria, can ignite at any time of the year. But at the moment it is worse than in many years mainly in the Stockholm area.
"I've been working here for more than 11 years and have never been involved in the many conversations about Canlehosta." It was so collected, very many at once, says Yen Dahlgren.

The problem is currently the largest in the Stockholm region, but also in the north of Värmland and in the center of Upland, it has been marked by an increase. In most other places, the level is normal. In Holland, it is an unusual cough of a cage.
