This is a tribute to the victims (of the coronavirus, editor's note), but also to those who have lost their jobs, particularly in the aviation industry, tells Jacob Holländer, one of the two pilots behind the works.

Together with colleague Bengt Andersson, the two professionals, members of an air show team, say they wanted to spread joy in the air.

Zero containment in Sweden

Sweden has chosen an original approach in Europe by not confining its population to fight against Covid-19.

Thursday, the balance sheet of the kingdom reached 5,500 dead for more than 74,000 cases. Compared to its population, the Scandinavian country has the fifth lowest mortality rate per million inhabitants due to Covid-19 in the world, five to twelve times higher than that of its northern neighbors (Norway, Finland, Denmark).
