The spread of infection in Sweden on Friday was 625 new confirmed infections per day per one million inhabitants and the spread has increased since April 2 when it was 469 per one million inhabitants. The figures are based on an average over the last seven days.

According to Johns Hopkins University’s figures , the average value for the number of infections in Europe right now is 231 new confirmed cases per day and one million inhabitants – in the USA the figure is 205. Sweden’s figures are thus about three times as high.

Only the two small states of San Marino with 711 and Andorra with 630 new confirmed infected per day per million inhabitants have higher numbers.
