Register to join Episode 46 'Sweden and the second wave: how do we live with COVID?' on Zoom here.

As many countries in Europe stand on the cusp of a second wave and heavier lockdown restrictions, Sweden’s ‘light touch’ strategy is regularly cited as an example of a different way to manage the pandemic.

With COVID-19 here to stay, governments are searching for the least disruptive way to keep the virus under control, and with a second wave strategy focused on testing and long-term public compliance, are there lessons to be learned from Sweden’s experience of coronavirus?

Here to discuss with Channel 4 News Health and Social Care Editor Victoria Macdonald will be Sweden’s Deputy State Epidemiologist Anders Wallensten, and President of The Royal Society of Medicine’s Epidemiology and Public Health Section, Dr Gabriel Scally.
