Sweden Has Passed the Threshold of 1M COVID-19 Cases

STOCKHOLM — Sweden has passed the threshold of one million coronavirus cases or 10 percent of its population.

“In Sweden, we have among the highest number of cases among 100,000 inhabitants in Europe,” said Karin Tegmark Wisell of the Swedish Public Health Agency. “What we can say is that it does not increase in any case.”

Sweden had opted for keeping large sections of society open. The number of people admitted to intensive care units is decreasing, she says.

The country has reported 14,158 confirmed deaths. More than 33% of the population has had at least one vaccine.
