State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell confirmed on Thursday, that there is a negative development of the Covid-19 epidemic in Sweden, even if the increase in cases is not as dramatic as elsewhere in Europe.

For exhausted doctors, nurses and healthcare staff in hospitals who were almost overwhelmed with infected patients in the spring and early summer, the prospect of a potential second wave of the virus is a worrying prospect.

Radio Sweden spoke to registered nurse, Ebba Gyberg, who works on the infection ward at a Stockholm hospital and asked if she and her colleagues have mentally and physically recovered from the experiences of the past six months. And if they feel ready to do it all again.
