Sweden could have achieved herd immunity in its capital Stockholm by May, the country’s ambassador to the US has claimed.
Karin Ulrika Olofsdotter told the US’s National Public Radio (NPR) that ‘about 30 per cent of people in Stockholm have reached a level of immunity.’
Sweden, whose softer approach to combating coronavirus has gained attention across the world, has now reported 18,926 coronavirus cases, with 2,274 deaths.
On Monday, 286 new cases and 80 deaths were announced, down from 463 cases yesterday, although there were just two deaths on Sunday.
