On Wednesday 25 March, The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited Region Stockholm's special healthcare management team.

The team is working together with Stockholm Disease Control to coordinate and lead the entire healthcare system in its efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19.

Many people are working to organise and adapt the healthcare system to be able to care for those affected by COVID-19 and others in need of emergency care.

During their visit, The Crown Princess Couple met regional management representatives, staff members working with COVID-19 and infection control doctors.
