How many people are ill from COVID-19 in Sweden?
The current number of confirmed cases, in Sweden (in Swedish) and globally, is displayed on our website. The figures change constantly, as more people seek healthcare and are diagnosed with the disease. However, there is a number of unrecorded cases of infected individuals who have not sought healthcare and therefore have not been tested. How large the number of unrecorded cases is depends on the strategy and test capacity of each country. In Sweden the testing has increased substantially during April, May and June, in accordance with the National Strategy. Most of the regions offer and encourage everyone with symptoms to get tested. The more extensive the testing is, the lower the number of unrecorded cases.
