In its latest approach to the pandemic, Sweden plans to ease coronavirus restrictions for elderly citizens. The country’s state epidemiologist says the situation is less “dramatic” than in the rest of Europe.

With the exception of those over 70, Swedish citizens have faced few restrictions during the pandemic. Now, the government’s “priority” is to return normalcy to the lives of elderly Swedes, according to Anders Tegnell. In contrast to most of Europe, older Swedish residents are now being encouraged to emerge from their isolation and resume their lives. (RT)
