More infected in Gamlegården

Gamlegården is one of the worst affected areas of the pandemic in Skåne. This is shown in figures from Region Skåne that P4 Kristianstad has seen.
In Kristianstad, 71 people over the age of 70 live in crowded conditions in Gamlegården, Charlottesborg and Österäng. Therefore, there is a high risk that they will be infected with covid-19.

On Tuesday, P4 Kristianstad presented the figures which show that three of the ten worst-affected postcode areas in Skåne are in Gamlegården.

– We have noticed this in the last three to four weeks, that we’re getting more questions about covid. In fact, more than this spring, says Emma Nilsson, District Nurse at Näsby health centre to the radio.

If you you’re forced to use public transport. Then you expose yourself to the risk of infection

Education, work and income are the three most important factors in explaining why some areas have been hit harder by covid-19 than others. This is shown in a report from the Centre of Epidemiology and Community Medicine. It was made in Stockholm but a report from Malmö University and Länsstyrelsen Skåne (the County Administrative Board) shows the same thing.

– According to Länsstyrelsen, family and housing conditions come into play, but also finances. If you you’re forced to use public transport. Then you expose yourself to the risk of infection, says Lovisa Gentz, Integration coordinator in Kristianstad municipality.

If you live in crowded conditions, often several generations living together, can’t work from home and have to commute by bus or train, the risk of infection increases. This is what Länsstyrelsen points out in its report. Lovisa Gentz provides the same picture from the municipality's work in Gamlegården. Something that Kb Mosaik has also spoken about before.

– If you go into town, you can see people who aren’t keeping distance. But it’s not because they are immigrants and therefore don’t care about the rules, says Lovisa Gentz.
