  • The government's Corona Commission has said deaths in elderly care are linked to structural issues ignored by current and previous governments and the general spread of Covid-19 in society.
  • The Public Health Agency was criticised by the corona commission for not knowing enough about the situation in elderly care, and for delays in guidance to the care homes.
  • Sweden's state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell responded in Swedish Radio's P1 Morgon programme by saying that the Public Health Agency has been clear about the risks to the elderly from the start.
