Anders Tegnell said on Friday that there was “a lot we do not know” about Delta and cautioned against drawing “far-reaching conclusions” about the coronavirus strain. He noted that the variant had been circulating in Sweden “for quite some time” with little effect, particularly in high-risk settings such as nursing homes.
- Editor’s note: Sweden was one of the only countries that did not lock down in the Spring of 2020. This seems too much of a coincidence that they are now not having a problem with the Delta variant. Perhaps the early natural exposure to Covid provided protection to their citizens.
