Tegnell disagrees with WHO assessment
The increase in the number of cases of coronavirus detection in the country is explained by the increase in the number of tests performed.
The World Health Organization “completely misinterpreted data on the situation with coronavirus in Sweden. This was stated by the chief state epidemiologist of Sweden Anders Tegnell, reports the BBC.
“They did not call to ask us. The number of intensive care visits is very low, and even mortality is starting to decline,” Tegnell said.
According to him, the increase in the number of cases of detection of coronavirus is explained by the increase in the number of tests performed.
Earlier, WHO said that in 30 countries in Europe over the past two weeks the number of new cases has increased. In 11 of them, the rate of spread of coronavirus can “again put the healthcare system on the brink.” These countries included Sweden and Ukraine.
It was reported that on June 11, Sweden announced a record of 1,474 new cases of coronavirus infection per day. The total number of infected reached 48,300, although the public health agency said that the growth in deaths is slowing.
