Sweden Now #2 Country In COVID Cases Per Capita

Newsweek reports:

Sweden’s total number of coronavirus cases grew by more than 100 overnight Wednesday, making it the second most-infected country per capita in the world.

The Scandinavian country known for its light-touch approach to battling the pandemic reached 54,562 total cases Wednesday, according to covidgraph.com, which compiles current data from multiple government health agencies and universities across the world.

When adjusted to reflect Sweden’s population of over 10 million, the country’s total number of cases currently sits at 5,334 — dangerously close to numbers in the U.S., which currently leads the world in total coronavirus cases and deaths.
