As Deaths Soar, Doubts Grow Over Sweden’s Exceptional COVID-19 Response
Sweden has Europe’s highest per capita death rate in past week.
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has been quarantined as a precaution. Someone in his environment has been in contact with another person who later turned out to be infected with the coronavirus. The Prime Minister and his wife will be tested as soon as possible.
Sweden has also registered the highest number of new daily infections to date. 4034 new infections were added. Of all tests administered in the past week, nearly 10 percent were positive, compared to more than 5 percent a week earlier.
As a result of the growing number of infections, hospital occupancy in the Scandinavian country is also increasing. In the beginning of the corona pandemic, the country was criticized for being too lax.
The country has now taken slightly stricter measures, although they are still a lot stricter in other countries. People should work from home if possible, avoid public transport and in restaurants, a maximum of eight people are allowed to sit together at the table.
Sweden was in a favourable position, because its population density is much lower than in most European countries, diminishing chances of COVID-19 contagion. ‘Corona is just a flu’ propaganda hailed its government for its lack of pro-health measures. Now, Sweden is much worse off than other Scandinavian countries.
