Sweden Calls 'Time' On The Pandemic

Sweden, one of the lightest of the lockdowns, has scrapped what few restrictions it did have.

Sweden's government, which throughout the pandemic has opted against lockdowns in favour of a voluntary approach, announced last week it would scrap the remaining restrictions - effectively declaring the pandemic over - as vaccines and the less severe Omicron variant have cushioned severe cases and deaths.

As I said last night, the pandemic is over.
