Swedish News, April 10: 77 new deaths - a total of 870 deceased
A further 77 deaths in covid-19 have been reported over the past 24 hours. The total death toll in Sweden is now 870, the Public Health Agency said at its daily press conference. This is a decrease since yesterday, when 106 new deaths were reported. 544 new cases of infection have been reported in the last 24 hours, and the total number of confirmed cases is now 9,685. 749 people have so far been in intensive care for covid-19 in Sweden. Stockholm still dominates the country in number of cases.

Reduced traffic for Easter
Traffic in the country fell by 15 to 35 percent during the Thursday prior to Easter weekend, according to the Swedish Transport Administration. In the worst virus-affected city Stockholm, it decreased by 18 percent compared to an ordinary Thursday. Last weekend, travel from the Stockholm region went down by 80 to 90 percent compared to the same weekend last year.

5-10 percent have the virus
2.5 percent of the randomly selected 773 Stockholmers tested last week were found to carry the corona virus according to the Public Health Agency. But significantly more than that have at some point been infected. Given the doubling time of six to seven days, between five and ten percent are carriers in Stockholm according to epidemiologist Anders Tegnell.

Restaurants in Stockholm checked
Restaurants and bars in Stockholm will be checked more closely to ensure compliance with the infection protection rules. Crowded circumstances can cause businesses to be closed down.

Digital healthcare visits on the increase
The corona pandemic has prompted Stockholmers to forgo physical doctor visits in favor of digital. During the first three months of the year, the number of digital visits via video at a health center was almost seven times as many as the year before. The number of digital healthcare cases on 1177.se (main Swedish healthcare guide online) increased by 60 percent, according to statistics from the Stockholm region. Digital renewal of recipes also increased substantially by 78 percent.
