During the meeting, the Director General provided information about the current spread of infection in Sweden and in neighbouring countries, anticipated developments during the summer and autumn, and the planned vaccination passport to facilitate free movement within the EU.

The importance of laying the foundations for good health at an early age was also emphasised, as well as how the pandemic has hit people in vulnerable areas and countries harder.
