STOCKHOLM -- Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says he’s keeping the 50 person-limit for gatherings.

“What we do right now, we will enjoy later. What we do wrong, we will suffer later,” Lofven said.

Lofven urged people to avoid gatherings, private parties, crowded places and recommended employers to allow people work from home. Schools and restaurants in Sweden have remained open, while wearing a face mask is optional and keeping social distance is recommended.

Sweden will lift a national ban on visiting elderly care home next month. Th
