As many countries in Europe stand on the cusp of a second wave and heavier lockdown restrictions, Sweden’s ‘light touch’ strategy is regularly cited as an example of a different way to manage the pandemic.
With COVID-19 here to stay, governments are searching for the least disruptive way to keep the virus under control, and with a second wave strategy focused on testing and long-term public compliance, are there lessons to be learned from Sweden’s experience of coronavirus?
Here to discuss with Channel 4 News Health and Social Care Editor Victoria Macdonald will be Sweden’s Deputy State Epidemiologist Anders Wallensten, and The Royal Society of Medicine’s Epidemiology and Public Health President Dr Gabriel Scally.
