Sweden's state epidemiologist has admitted he made the wrong call on the country's coronavirus lockdown for the first time.
Anders Tegnell, who was behind the decision to shun full lockdown in favour of voluntary social distancing measures, now admits that too many people have died under his strategy.
Asked to battle the same disease again with the benefit of hindsight, Tegnell said he would bring in tougher measures to slow the spread.
However, he still believes that full lockdowns of the kind seen in other European countries during the outbreak were unnecessary.
