Coronavirus pandemic: Sweden has gone it alone in dealing with Covid-19

Sweden plans to restrict the number of passengers on long-distance trains and buses in an effort to prevent a pick-up in new Covid-19 cases and the spread of mutations of the virus that could be more infectious, the government said on Tuesday. The government has been ratcheting up measures since a second wave of infections hit Sweden toward the end of last year, but the country's response remains less heavy-handed than the full lockdowns adopted in many parts of Europe.
