King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden described 2020 as a “terrible” year.

“I think we have failed. We have a large death toll and it is terrible.”

This is how the king of Sweden, Carlos Gustavo, defined the year 2020, marked by the country’s controversial strategy against covid-19.

Sweden has been criticized for its management of the pandemic, in which it never imposed the total confinement that was seen in other European countries, and based, rather than on mandatory rules, on recommendations to the population.

There have been nearly 350,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 7,800 deaths in Sweden.
