Sweden's coronavirus death toll surpassed 2,000 and health officials revised earlier statements about when Stockholm's outbreak peaked. In the capital region alone, more than 70,000-80,000 people believed to be have been infected, while the figure is around 100,000-200,000 nationwide, based on the death rate of 1-2%. Probably Sweden's daily death toll has reached its peak but 2,000 more people will die in the end.
Japan also shied away from complete lockdowns, while citizens are only urged to stay home. Most shops and restaurants are closed down and they have nowhere to go unless they have jobs to do. The total death toll is still around 350 in Japan, which means that up to 35,000 people may have been infected with the coronavirus. 35,000 is more than triple the government's official figure (10,000) but still much lower than European figures. They believe this laissez-faire strategy is only workable in Japan, where people are orderly and law-abiding compared to European standards.
The Public Health Agency of Sweden said it had recorded 16,755 confirmed cases, and 2,021 deaths with the coronavirus.
The agency also corrected a report it published earlier this week on Stockholm, the epicentre of the Swedish epidemic.
The report, based on statistical modelling, initially said the capital region passed the peak of simultaneous infections on April 15th with 86,000 people believed to be have been infected.
But on Thursday it revised the date to April 8th, with some 70,500 believed to have been infected.
