Sweden’s way of acting during the corona pandemic may be a model for the future. This is the opinion of WHO crisis management officer Michael J Ryan.

The world’s eyes were once again directed at Sweden during the World Health Organization’s daily press meeting. WHO Chief Michael J Ryan was asked about Sweden’s strategy and whether Sweden can cope better with a second wave of contagion because there have not been as strict measures as many other countries.

“A model for the future”

WHO believes that Sweden’s strategy can be a model for the future.

“I believe that if we are to reach a new normal situation, Sweden can in many ways represent a model for the future,” said Michael J Ryan.

The medical service received praise

During the press conference, healthcare in Sweden was also raised as a positive example.
