STOCKHOLM (dpa-AFX) – In Sweden, a whole series of new corona measures have been in place since Wednesday. Pubs and restaurants with a serving license must close by 11 p.m. at the latest from now on. Groups can now be a maximum of eight people there, and they can only be served at the table.
Adults are specifically encouraged to limit their close indoor contact – this means avoiding larger gatherings and celebrations. For indoor public events, among other things, there are now upper limits for participants. All of this applies until further notice and should be checked every 14 days.
Everyone who can do this is also called upon to work in the home office, as Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson underlined when the measures were announced on Monday. The reason for the introduction of the new restrictions as well as the extension of existing ones is the sharp rise in the number of new infections in the country over the holidays. The government and the health authority Folkhälsomyndigheten want to achieve that the increased burden on the health system is reduced again.
During the Corona crisis, Sweden had taken a special path that was closely monitored internationally with comparatively moderate restrictions and stronger appeals to the common sense of the citizens. But even in the Scandinavian EU countries, certain measures and specifications had been introduced again and again./trs/DP/mis
