Maintaining a normal lifestyle in the epidemic, the number of people dying from Covid-19 in Sweden has now reached 3,040, up from 2,941 the day before.
The Swedish Public Health Agency said the number of Covid-19 deaths in the country surpassed 3,000 on May 7, more than in comparison with neighboring Northern Europe.
The official confirmed death toll has now reached 3,040, up from 2,941 cases recorded the day before.
Sweden takes an amazingly gentle approach during the Covid-19 pandemic. Most schools, shops and restaurants remain open and the government only encourages people to voluntarily take preventive measures focusing on social spacing and sanitation.
Mortality in population size in Sweden is much higher than in Denmark, Norway and Finland, where authorities have taken stronger measures. But the numbers here are basically lower than Britain, France and Spain, where blockade orders have also been applied.
Swedish officials admit they have failed to prevent Covid-19 from attacking elderly care centers, but remain confident about the prospects of a “community immunity” strategy.
