Minister of Social Affairs Lena Hallengren believes that the Swedish government has handled the corona pandemic as best it could and says she would not have done anything differently.

“But it is clear that it is quite tough to be accused of having killed 12,000 people,” she said in an interview with Aftonbladet on Saturday.

When asked if she would do something different looking back, she answered “no.”

The Swedish corona strategy has been criticized both in Sweden and abroad, but Hallengren believes that the government’s image is wrong.

I felt instead that we did as much as we could every single day, Hallengren said in the interview.
