Swedish Expressen has accessed detailed information on the spread of the coronavirus in and around Stockholm.

The figures show that there is a big difference between the infection rates in rich and poor areas. In areas such as Rinkeby, Tenstra, Fittja and Hallunda you can see that the infection rates are higher than usual.

“We will continue to look at these groups to see why they are being hit harder than others,” states epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told Expressen.

Unverified cases

The figures show that the virus has infected one to two percent of the population in the most vulnerable areas. The high rates of infection are concentrated in clusters of between four and eight postcodes.

The information that Expressen has accessed was collected before the Stockholm region extended the testing to private individuals. They thus only include people who are confirmed sick, as well as employees in the health sector who have been tested.

If the Public Health Authority’s report of April 23 that there are 75 unconfirmed cases for each person confirmed to be infected, means that the concentration in these areas is very high.

Urban areas exposed

Express’s research shows that the areas severely affected by the coronavirus have been particularly vulnerable.

“There are factors in the spread of infection that cause people who live close and meet many people to be hit more often and harder than people with large homes, who can work more easily at home,” Tegnell told Expressen.

Earlier, the public health authorities denied that the virus was spreading more and more rapidly in areas where people live close.

Gambled and lost

Throughout the corona pandemic, the Swedes have failed to shut down and impose severe restrictions. Doctor Gunnar Hasle told Dagbladet on Saturday that it is now high time that Sweden also changes its corona strategy.

– Sweden gambled and lost when it comes to the corona strategy. We couldn’t know this for sure in March, but now it should be obvious to everyone.

infection Record

Last week, 9094 new cases of the corona virus were registered in Sweden. This is the highest number of new cases that have been registered since the pandemic erupted in March.

– We have an increasing number of infections in Sweden, but that is because we are testing more than before. It is unfortunate that people confuse Sweden with countries that have had no problems whatsoever and which are obviously at the beginning of their epidemic, ”Anders Tegnell told Swedish SVT.

A total of 5,280 people have died as a result of the coronavirus in Sweden and 65,137 cases of infection have been registered.
