The high mortality rate in Swedish housing for the elderly during the corona pandemic is a major failure for Sweden and a betrayal for the elderly. This is how Christian Democrats' party leader Ebba Busch comments SVT's revelation of an excess of 30 percent around the country's elderly housing.

"We have really failed our elderly," she says. I take these numbers seriously.

Criticism against lack of national support

According to Ebba Busch, Sweden's 290 municipalities have been left "wind to wave" during the corona crisis, without national support. Instead, a visitor ban and support for protective equipment should be introduced much earlier.
