Sweden hopes new COVID-19 restrictions help to reduce cases

Sweden today reported 393 daily cases of Covid-19 per million people, while Britain and France confirmed 337 and 324 respectively. Sweden also has much higher infection rates than Norway, with daily case totals doubling in a fortnight and hospitals filling up faster than any country in Europe. Hospital admissions for coronavirus patients have almost doubled each week in Sweden, with the country recording 208,295 cases and 6,406 deaths since the start of the pandemic. Goran Hansson, the head of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, has warned the situation in Sweden is ‘serious’ with the number of cases increasing at an ‘accelerating speed.’ However, despite the soaring infection rate, health authorities in Sweden have insisted: ‘We don’t see that we are at a point where we might recommend general use of face masks on public transport.’
