Sweden reports that 2,083 patients are in ICU. The highest numbers of infections (12,208) and fatalities (2,058) are identified in the capital region.
"It is a positive sign that we have had such low numbers for the past few days," Swedish chief epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told a press conference. "In certain regions, the statistics are dropping, some are stable, while in some regions it started to go up, but these are regions with little population."
