According to local media reports on February 3rd, the Swedish government issued a statement saying that the country will lift most of its restrictions imposed on the CCP virus (Covid-19) pandemic on February 9th.
It is reported that the lockdown restrictions to be lifted include no longer requiring bars and restaurants to close at 11pm and limiting the number of people; people will also no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination against the CCP virus when attending indoor activities; and, people will not be required to wear masks when taking public transportation during peak hours.
It is understood that works that require face to face interactions will gradually resume, universities and higher education courses will also resume in-person teaching and learning as soon as possible.
In this regard, the Swedish Minister of Health said the government will always remain vigilant against the CCP virus, and to this end the authorities recommend people with symptoms of the CCP virus continue to abide by the quarantine restriction policy until they recover.
Among other EU countries, Denmark and Norway have also lifted most of the restrictions on the CCP virus pandemic.
