Sweden is not doing enough to slow the spread of the Coronavirus and its public health agency needs to be more open about the data informing its strategy, a diseases expert told Radio Sweden.

Cecilia Söderberg-Nauclér is a microbial pathogenesis professor at Stockholm's Karolinska Institute. She says Sweden was too slow to react when the virus first came into the country, and wants to see tougher measures similar to Norway to try and slow the spread of the disease.

She was also one of over 2,000 academics who signed an open letter to the Swedish government in March calling for tougher measures to try and ease the burden on the healthcare system caused by coronavirus.

Listen to the report to hear what she has to say.
