Swedish PM Lofven Tests Negative For COVID-19, To End Self-isolation

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has tested negative for COVID19 and will end the period of selfisolating he underwent as a precaution after a contact met with a person who was found to have been infected with the disease, a spokesman said.

STOCKHOLM: Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has tested negative for COVID-19 and will end the period of self-isolating he underwent as a precaution after a contact met with a person who was found to have been infected with the disease, a spokesman said.

“After a negative COVID-19 test and consultation with a doctor, the Prime Minister will end his isolation,” a spokesman for the PM said in a text message to Reuters on Monday.

Sweden, like much of Europe, has seen infections surge recently, and Lofven said last week he would self-isolate after a person close to him had met someone who was later confirmed to have COVID-19.
