Covid-19 Updates: Could the world’s Nightmare be coming to an end?

Covid-19 Updates: Could the world's Nightmare be coming to an end? 1

For the last two years, countries have had strict border measures, demanding negative test results or vaccination certification to combat the spread of the deadly Covid-19. However, less than eight months ago, different countries have been lifting travel bans and restrictions.

Sweden scraps demand for negative COVID test to enter country.

Travelers to Sweden will no longer be required to show a negative COVID test before entering the country, the government said on Tuesday.

Sweden introduced rules for a recent negative COVID test on Dec. 28 last year in a bid to slow the spread of the more contagious Omicron variant. Since then, Sweden has repeatedly set new daily case records with Omicron now the totally dominant variant.

“Travelers are no longer considered to pose a particular risk of affecting the spread of Omicron in Sweden,” the government said in a statement.

Sweden has recorded more than 20,000 new daily cases over the past few days, roughly double the previous record from earlier waves. The number of cases has put a strain on healthcare services but not to the same extent as before the vaccine rollout.
