Sweden admits it should have imposed restrictions

Sweden’s state epidemiologist, who had been the mastermind behind the country’s policy not to impose a lockdown, has admitted it would have been better if the country had imposed restrictions in order to control the spread of the coronavirus.

For long months Anders Tegnell had defended his line of thinking, whilst criticising other countries for the lockdowns they imposed. On Wednesday morning, however, Tegnell declared during an interview on Sveriges Radio that too many people had died in Sweden because of Covid-19.

Sweden has the highest per capita rate of deaths from coronavirus worldwide. Over 4,400 persons have died, whereas the number of deaths in neighbouring Norway, Denmark and Finland did not exceed 600.
