Omikron invaded another European country: tightening measures quickly

Today, Monday, the Swedish government announced the tightening of measures against the spread of the Corona virus. It thus responds to the standard numbers of people infected in recent days, mainly in the meantime the predominant omicron variant. AFP reported that the new restrictions will come into effect on Wednesday.

Bars and restaurants must close no later than 23.00 hectares and there will be a maximum of 500 people in public gatherings. At public events with more than 50 participants inside, a certificate of vaccination against coronavirus will be required. Currently, these affirmations are mandatory at internal events with more than 500 participants. A maximum of 20 people can be held in private internal meetings.

The government recommends adults limit social contact and work from home as much as possible. The measures are expected to remain in effect until mid-February, but will be reviewed every two weeks.

Last week, they set a string of new records in Sweden. Most of them were on January 5 – 23877. According to the government, the health system is also under attack.

Sweden has become known abroad for the fact that, unlike other countries, it has not imposed any school closures or closures since the beginning of the pandemic. The government advised citizens only to limit contacts and maintain a physical distance, while wearing towels remained voluntary. However, visits to nursing homes have been banned. The government also imposed restrictions on the number of participants in public gatherings and shortened the opening hours of bars and restaurants.

Sweden, which has recorded 10 million deaths since the beginning of the pandemic, has recorded 15,300 deaths linked to the virus, which is lower than the European average. However, this is higher than in neighboring countries, which critics attributed to moderate measures.
