Effective Strategy Greatly Worked in Containing Sweden Coronavirus
One of the severely affected countries of the world by the COVID-19, the efficient management of Sweden Coronavirus by the Swedish Public Health Agency greatly helped the country to avert a major crisis.
The national strategy drawn by Folkhälsomyndigheten (FHM) or the Swedish Public Health Agency was designed in such a way that it could most effectively stop the death rate. The country currently is facing the third wave of Sweden Coronavirus.
The quick response of FHM to speedily contain the spread of Sweden Coronavirus helped the nation to stop the galloping spread of COVID-19 and also stop the death rate. In fact, the FHM swung into action to combat Sweden Coronavirus in March 2020.
Break The Chain
The emergency health strategy was also drawn by the FHM intensifying regular tests to trace more cases, promoting isolation of people and lockdowns. Side by side, compulsory use of face mask, use of hand sanitizer, and physical distancing in market places or other spots where a large number of people tends to assemble were implemented very strictly.
The compulsory quarantine was also adopted to stop the spread of the virus.
As a result of the adoption of these measures, the Sweden Coronavirus flattened before assuming formidable form or going out of hands of medical services as happened in many other countries.
The FHM managed the pandemic on a war footing and took all factors into account including such factors as a potential source like asymptomatic spread, aerosol transmission and children.
It carried out regular investigations about the growth graph of COVID-19 and making strategies accordingly to stop the spread of the pandemic.
Sweden, in fact, is one of the European nations where the incidence of death and contamination had been rather on the higher side. As far as death is concerned, altogether 13,700 persons died of COVID-19 in Sweden till April 16, 2021.
Efficient COVID-19 Management
Since the infection rate in Sweden was one the highest in Europe, the efficient management of the FHM played a major role in reducing Sweden Coronavirus and finally flattening it. The remarkable achievement of FHM can be understood from the fact that in Sweden, million new infection rate per day is now 606.
As the new COVID-19 variant has now occurred with the UK SARS-Cov-2 variant found in 75% to 100% of new cases in the UK, the anti-COVID-19 combat strategy has also been further tightened to stop the spread of the virus.
Practically, the management of COVID-19 in Sweden is far better as compared to other countries of Europe. This is one of the reasons that the strictness in lockdowns has been relaxed. However, in other European nations, the Third Wave has resulted in growing cases of lockdowns.
The success in COVID-19 management of Sweden can be gauged from the fact that the high schools in the country were opened on April 1, 2021. Subsequently, other academic institutions also are poised to be opened before long proving the danger of COVID-19 spread showing a downturn.
The Last Word
Globally, it has been viewed that the management of pandemic had been rather unique in Sweden as the results of a sharp downturn in it prove it. The decentralization of pandemic management in Sweden also played a major role in containing the spread of the virus.
The FHM, since 2020, carried out an intensified area-wise survey of COVID-19 thus helping it greatly to find out the hotspots and launching remedial measures quickly. This helped to stop the spread of the virus. In Europe and elsewhere in the world, people now are talking about the Swedish Model of combating the spread of the COVID-19. Sweden is also going to reopen some of its facilities this month.
