Sweden is now among the top 10 worst affected countries in Europe.

It’s not only Sweden who has had a big surge in the number of coronavirus cases lately.

Norway, with only half the population of Sweden, has more cases of coronavirus than Sweden. There were no less than 56 cases on Wednesday evening, an increase with 23 from Tuesday evening.

Iceland had 26 cases on Wednesday evening – which is by far worst in Northern Europe taking into account the island’s small population.
