Care workers from across Sweden say managers didn't take corona infections in elderly care homes seriously when the pandemic was raging at its height.

A Swedish Radio News investigation of hundreds of cases has read witness testimony from workers who say they were forced to work without protection and that their fears were silenced by their bosses.

The agency that regulates care homes in Sweden is called IVO. Since corona came to Sweden it has received 800 warnings, complaints and tip-offs regarding elderly care homes.

Press play to hear the details.
