    The total cases in the country now exceeds 9 100, and the hospital system in Stockholm is being overwhelmed with patients and dead bodies. Swedish authorities are storing bodies in Gothenburg and Stockholm in “refrigerated shipping containers, ice rinks, and canteen fridges,” according to RT News.

    Crematoriums cannot keep up with the massive influx of virus-related deaths which has overflowed morgues.

    According to the latest figures released by the Public Health Agency during today’s press conference, the total number of deaths increased by another 106 to a total of 793, which with the backlog in the reporting to the Public Health Authority means that Sweden has counter over 800 Covid-19 deaths.

    By comparison, Sweden has between 500 and 700 deaths linked to influenza per year according to the Public Health Authority.

    Approximately 470 patients are currently being treated for Covid-19 according to the Swedish Intensive Care Register, which means that they make up the majority of all intensive care patients currently. The number of intensive care patients with Covid-19 increases on average daily with between 10 and 30 patients.

    Sweden currently allegedly has around 950 intensive care places, but the exact number of available places remains confidential.

    Men are still the group worst affected by Covid-19. Of the total 719 people who have been, or still are, admitted to intensive care units in Sweden for Covid-19, 545 are men.

    Anders Tegnell, state epidemiologist at the Public Health Authority, said that a study was carried out in the Stockholm area to test the spread of infection in the community. Of the 773 people aged between 2 and 86 in Stockholm, 2,5 percent were infected.

    He further stated that with the spread rate of the Coronavirus, between five and ten percent of the population in Stockholm would be infected with the virus. “We know that there are significantly more people, it is obvious but how many more we do not know.”

    At the same time, he made clear that the figures concern Stockholm which is much worse affected than the rest of the country and that there is no clear data on what it looks like in the rest of Sweden.
