Validated multiple mutated viruses

Aside from the infection situation in Sweden, Nakstad believes the situation in the Nordic countries is under control.

Finland, Norway and Denmark have all witnessed a decrease in the infection trend since Easter, with less than 1,000 daily cases. Nakstad says the numbers are falling faster in Finland and lowest in Denmark, although measures in both countries are very strict.
