Growing concern over shortage of medicines

1:03 min

Temporary shortages of medicines in Sweden are an increasing problem, and other countries in Europe are also being affected.

Last year, 700 medicines were back-ordered in Sweden and this year the number could be about 1000, according to the Swedish Medical Products Agency.

It's unclear when deliveries will return to normal again.
