November 11, 2020

STOCKHOLM — Stockholm reintroduced a ban on visiting elderly in care homes after a reported spike.

The ban “is a precautionary measure because the residents belong to a risk group,” the city of Stockholm said in a statement.

In September, Sweden lifted a national ban on visiting elderly in care homes. The ban came after the bulk of Sweden’s deaths this year was recorded among people above the age of 70, and many in nursing homes.

In recent days, Sweden has seen an uptick in cases.

Overall, Sweden has reported 162,240 confirmed cases and 6,082 deaths.
