China attacks Swedish virus response

An article in a magazine owned by the Chinese Communist Party has strongly criticised Sweden's response to the corona virus, calling it a "capitulation".

The leader article refers to Sweden as a "black hole" in which the virus could grow and spread to other regions.

Reacting to the article, Sweden's Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson said it could be linked to the current poor relations between the two countries after the recent imprisonment of Swedish citizen, publisher Gui Minhai by the Beijing regime.
