  • Sweden still hasn't made any deals to buy new medicines that could be given to people who have Covid-19 and risk getting seriously ill.

  • According to the pharmaceutical companies, a shortage of those medicines could be on the horizon.

  • One chief physician tells Swedish Radio News that he would have liked to see Sweden secure the drugs. But an investigator at the Board of Health and Welfare says that Sweden would prefer a common agreement within the EU.
