″ The party is over ″. Sweden announces restrictions on restaurants and nightlife venues

Sweden will impose, from 1 November, new restrictions on the operation of restaurants and nightlife spaces due to the increase of new infections by the new coronavirus in that country, it was released this Thursday.

In commenting on the new measures, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that “the party is over”, at a time when the country totals 109,000 cases of infection and 5,929 deaths since the onset of the health crisis caused by the covid-19 disease.

With an incidence of 101.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, according to data from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, Sweden counted, on Wednesday, 1,206 new infections.

According to the head of the Swedish Public Health Agency, Johan Carlson, the new restrictions for the catering sector impose a maximum limit of eight people per table.

The Swedish Prime Minister stressed that the new restrictions also apply to nightlife venues (bars, clubs), stressing that these establishments have not followed the recommended standards for dealing with the pandemic.

Swedish Interior Minister Mikael Damberg clarified that night clubs can only accommodate a maximum of 50 people simultaneously, warning that fines will be imposed on establishments that do not respect the rules.
