Sweden Eases Some Coronavirus-Related Restrictions

STOCKHOLM — Sweden, with coronavirus cases declining, is easing some restrictions.

Longer opening hours at restaurant and bars will start June 1, along with changes to the maximum number of people who can gather indoors and outdoors.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says, “Let’s continue to do this together, until the day when this is over.”

The Scandinavian country didn’t go into lockdowns or closed businesses, relying instead on citizens’ sense of civic duty to control infections. Sweden has registered more than a 1 million cases and 14,451 confirmed deaths.


GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, marking a symbolic end to the devastating coronavirus pandemic that triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, upended economies and killed millions of people worldwide.
