They argue a “a proper reboot” of the contagion strategy is needed using measures that the Swedish health authorities have so far been skeptical of, including face masks in public spaces and putting travelers from high-risk areas in quarantine even if they show no symptoms.

For now at least state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell remains committed to his country’s policy of sustainable restrictions, which continue to draw scrutiny as countries around the world again impose lockdowns amid new waves of infections.
