Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Nordics - Statistics & Facts

As of November 9, 2020, Sweden and Denmark had the highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases out of the Nordic countries. Indeed, Sweden recorded over 162 thousand infections, while Denmark counted roughly 57 thousand. After a first coronavirus wave in early 2020, the Nordics are currently experiencing a second wave. In October and November, daily coronavirus infections have surpassed the previous peaks. For instance, daily cases in Sweden peaked at 4.7 thousand cases in November, whereas the first wave peaked at 1.7 thousand in June. Similarly, daily coronavirus cases in Denmark were twice as high in November as the first wave peaks that took place in April.

In the Nordics, the number of hospitalized people increased due to the coronavirus. Although daily cases were at their highest, the rise of patients was lower than during the first wave. For instance, in November, Danish hospitals were treating roughly 200 patients compared to 500 at the height of the first wave. Sweden is facing an increasing number of intensive care patients, yet admissions remain lower than those registered during the first wave.

To this day, the coronavirus pandemic cost the lives of roughly 7.5 thousand people in the Nordics. Among the deaths which occurred in the Nordics, with over 6 thousand lost lives, Sweden registered the heftiest death toll. Although death tolls increased in November, as for the hospital figures, the second wave was yet less deadly than the first. Nonetheless, figures solely represent the confirmed cases and not the exact number of infected people. Thus, these figures can only provide a limited picture of how the coronavirus spreads. Coronavirus figures inherently depend on the testing capacity and policy of every country. To this day, Denmark had one of the highest test rates in the Nordics. However, Sweden has drawn worldwide attention for the way it handles the pandemic.
