The coronavirus pandemic has become a "wake-up call for how we treat elderly people in Sweden" says one chief medical officer, following a damning report from the health care watchdog IVO.
On Thursday, the government announced that students in upper secondary schools will have to return to remote learning for a month from Monday, to help stop the spread of Covid-19. We also have an update in the story that made international headlines this week, a 70-year-old woman was accused of isolating her son for decades, but now the prosecutor is dropping the criminal investigation. Hospital doctors and physicians in Stockholm are calling for the wider use of face masks, and Melodifestivalen fans are already now gearing up for a different kind of music festival next year.
