Radio Sweden Weekly: Reaction to the Corona Commission's damning report

26 min
The independent corona commission presents its first report into Sweden's handling of the pandemic and it's a damning indictment of what it calls major structural shortcomings in elderly care with authorities proving unprepared and ill-equiped to meet the pandemic.

We summarise the main points, speak to the chair of the commission and have reaction from an expert in the field of elderly care.

Also, news of staff shortages at hospitals this Christmas and we take a look at why a text message to 22 million phones from two authorities involved in Sweden's pandemic response caused mirth and derision.
