Freddie Sayers talks to Swedish doctor Soo Aleman about Covid-19.
We hear a lot about Sweden’s experience of Covid-19, with the New York Times declaring this week that that country is now “the world’s cautionary tale.”
But what’s it really like on the ground?
Dr Soo Aleman has been both on the front lines of the Covid-19 epidemic as a senior physician at Stockholm’s leading Karolinska hospital, and on the research side, as Assistant Professor at the Karolinska Institute and one of a group that last week published new data around T-cell immunity.
We talked to her about the findings of that study, and how it matches what she is seeing in her hospital.
