Sweden has significantly milder restrictions than many other countries in Europe.
This has also been noticed in foreign media where experts as well as laymen marvel at Sweden's strategy.
Now, however, the World Health Organization (WHO) is celebrating Sweden's handling of the virus.
Other countries can learn from Sweden
During Wednesday's press conference, WHO got a question about the Swedish model when it comes to the corona virus.
Director-General of the organization Mike Ryan so that Sweden can be a role model for countries that want to open up again after a prolonged shutdown.
“We need to be aware that the virus is present and as individuals and families and communities, we must do as much as we can to limit the spread, and that will include adapting our lives,” says Ryan.
– In Sweden they look at how it is done in real time. I think there may be lessons to be learned from our colleagues in Sweden.
Trust the population
Ryan also says that there is a perception that Sweden is not working to stop the virus, something he does not agree with at all.
– Nothing can be further from the truth. Sweden has a tough policy on social distance. What they have done differently is that they have relied on the relationship between the population and the authorities, Ryan says during the press conference.
