A Swedish Radio investigation of a Stockholm care home for the elderly shows that a lack of PPE and staff members who are too scared to be in the same room as infected residents are among the biggest concerns when dealing with the coronavirus.

Municipally owned care facility Fruängsgården in southern Stockholm had its first case of the virus in the middle of March, and according to the Swedish population register at least 22 people were registered as having died there in a month. Staff are critical of how the virus has been handled and how care for the elderly during the pandemic has been carried out.
