STOCKHOLM — Sweden, which has shunned lockdowns throughout the pandemic, has registered 13,812 new coronavirus cases since Friday, health agency statistics showed on Tuesday.

The figure compared with 14,950 cases during the corresponding period last week.

The country of 10 million inhabitants registered 44 new deaths, taking the total to 14,217. The deaths registered have occurred over several days and sometimes weeks.

Sweden’s death rate per capita is many times higher than that of its Nordic neighbors’ but lower than in most European countries that opted for lockdowns. (Reporting by Johan Ahlander; editing by Niklas Pollard)
