Sweden continues without ‘lock-down’

People are not generally ordered to stay at home, although they are told to isolate at the first sign of ‘slight cold-like symptoms’. 

Swedes are advised to ‘keep your distance’ at gyms and sports facilities rather than avoiding them altogether and there is a ban on gatherings of more than 50 people.

The government has also carried out random sampling which suggests that as many as 2.5 per cent of people in Stockholm have been infected. 

That implies a higher figure of around 60,000 in the Stockholm region, suggesting that many people have had the virus without being added to the official count. 

Unlike most of Europe, Sweden has not imposed a lockdown, and primary schools, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars remain open.
