Published

At a press briefing on June 11, Lena Hallengren, Minister for Health and Social Affairs, summarised three months of transmission of COVID-19 in Sweden.

“We have managed to flatten the curve. The health care system has coped well,” Minister for Health and Social Affairs Lena Hallengren said.

Lena Hallengren further stated that as testing now rapidly increases, more infections are consequently detected. At the same time, the number of patients in intensive care units constantly decreases.

“A mix of recommendations, legal requirements and regular adjustments of measures will continue to be corner stones of the Swedish strategy to deal with COVID-19,” the Minister for Health and Social Affairs said.
