More than 3,000 people have died in Sweden, which never locked down

Sweden passes 3,000 coronavirus deaths after lockdown measures deemed more lax than many European neighbours.

The number of coronavirus-related deaths in Sweden is at least 3,040, the country’s Public Health Agency said on Thursday. In total, the country has recorded 24,623 Covid-19 cases since the outbreak began.

Sweden has taken a relatively relaxed approach to social distancing rules compared with other European countries. 

Why Sweden never locked down: Sweden has been an outlier during the coronavirus outbreak. The country has not joined many of its European neighbors in imposing strict limits on citizens' lives, and images of people heading to work on busy streets, or chatting at cafes and bars have raised eyebrows.

While the country's chief epidemiologist explains why Sweden never locked down and the the country says it's coronavirus approach has worked, the numbers suggest a different story.
