So far this year, four cases where people have been infected in the county by the tick-borne disease TBE have been registered. In some of the cases, people have been infected by ticks in the area around Lindesberg.
Last year, 8 cases were found and since 2015, the number of cases of TBE where people have been infected in the county has increased.
