  • In August, 82 per cent of Covid patients in intensive care were not vaccinated against the virus, figures from the Swedish intensive care registry show.
  • During the month just 7 out of the 89 Covid ICU patients nationwide were fully vaccinated.
  • The situation can be an emotional one for ICU staff who have worked hard during the pandemic, says Karin Frisell, a medical doctor in charge at the ICU at Mälarsjukhuset hospital in Eskilstuna.
