Sweden joins the Covid-19 Lockdown Club.
"Sweden is switching from its voluntary lockdowns to a much more aggressive approach that will see public events of more than eight people banned."
"[N]ew restrictions will no longer be a recommendation but enshrined in law as part of Sweden’s Public Order Act, which means there will be harsh penalties for violating them. Lawbreakers could face fines or up to six months in prison."
"Prime Minister Stefan Löfven told citizens: 'It’s going to get worse. Do your duty and take responsibility to stop the spread of infection. There should not be social situations with more than eight people even if they are not formally affected by the law. This is the new norm for the whole society, for all of Sweden. Don’t go to the gym. Don’t go to the library. Don’t have dinners. Don’t have parties. Cancel.'"
