Updated: Apr 22, 2020
Sweden has reviewed the results from the contact tracing done on the first cases of coronavirus in the country.
Swedish Radio News reports that the results indicate that the virus was spread mostly to family members, or those in very close contact with those first infected with the virus, many of them coming back from trips abroad.
The contact tracing found the new cases where people lived together, shared a kitchen and maybe a bedroom, or spent a long time time together.
