Sweden has reported a rise in the daily death rate from coronavirus of at least 100 for two days in a row, taking the total number of dead to 792, according to data released by the Swedish Public Health Agency.
The total number of cases across the country has increased to 9,141 with 719 in intensive care.
Stockholm, the capital, is the epicenter of the outbreak.
Sweden has not implemented a nationwide lockdown like other European countries. Instead they are asking those aged 70 and over to stay at home and for other to observe respected levels of social distancing, but public meeting places such as bars and restaurants are open.
