3 992 people with confirmed covid-19 have now passed away in Sweden, the daily update from the Public Health Agency shows. This is an increase of 67 people over the past 24 hours.
It can be seen as a relatively high figure for being a weekend, since it has been previously known that the reporting to the authority usually drops during the weekend and creates some backlog in the statistics.
There are uncertain figures this weekend. Thursday was a red day but Friday a weekday, it can record but is a speculation on my part. It is not possible to draw any conclusions based on today’s figure, says the Public Health Authority’s press officer Christer Janson to SVT News.
The number of laboratory-confirmed cases of corona infection is now a total of 33,188, an increase of 379 cases over the past 24 hours.
The number of intensive care workers has risen from 1,906 to 1,929 people in total according to the latest 24-hour report.
