Probable causes of coronavirus at the end of last year do not change anything today, according to the chief epidemiologist of Sweden.
Isolated cases of coronavirus could have been in Sweden as far back as last November. This was stated by the State epidemiologist of Sweden Anders Tegnell, reports on Tuesday, May 5, SVT.
Sweden reported its first case of coronavirus in January last year. Then a 20-year-old woman who returned from a trip to Wuhan received a positive test result and was isolated in the hospital.
She was probably not the first virus-infected in Sweden. Anders Tagnell considers it probable that cases of the disease were already in Sweden in November.
“I think that you can find special cases among travelers from Wuhan who were there in November-December last year. This is not at all surprising, but very natural,” Tegnell said.
Separately, Tegnell noted that probable cases of coronavirus at that time did not change anything today. When asked if these cases could have affected the spread of infection in Sweden, he answered in the negative.
Today it became known that in France, the case of COVID-19, was in December last year.
Earlier, the head of WHO said that coronavirus with people will remain for a long time and warned of the possibility of repeated outbreaks.
