Sweden has made a lot of strides with handling the coronavirus pandemic.
There was a high number of cases in Sweden based on the epidemiological status of infections.
This let to people stating that Sweden was pursuing a “herd immunity” approach to combating the virus.
In the meantime, as other European countries opened up its borders to travel and tourism, Sweden was left out from travel advisories and Swedes were discouraged to travel to other countries.
Since then, there are reports that Sweden has achieved herd immunity although the authorities have stated it was not their aim.
The country’s infection rate has come down and countries across Europe are permitting Swedes to travel.
These measures in the Swedish government permitting nationals to travel are part of the progress Sweden has made.
