Sweden registers 4,831 new COVID-19 cases, 26 deaths on Friday

The country of 10 million inhabitants registered 26 new deaths, taking the total to 13,003. 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 neighbours' but lower than in several European countries that opted for lockdowns.
