Early coronavirus cases likely came to Sweden from UK and USA

Early coronavirus cases likely came to Sweden from UK and USA
New genetic analysis of early corona cases in Sweden suggests that the virus could have come to the country from the UK and USA, Swedish Radio News reports.

But Sweden’s testing strategy at the time only recommended testing travellers from China, Italy, Iran and South Korea, as well as testing patients who had pneumonia with an unclear cause.
 
Pharmacies roll out covid-19 antibody tests across Sweden

Several pharmacy chains in Sweden are now offering covid-19 antibody tests, and they are in high demand, according to Tobias Perdahl, deputy CEO of online healthcare service Doktor 24.

The time slots have disappeared almost instantaneously.

We are running as fast as we can to get more staff to perform the tests and we are also expanding the services to other parts of Sweden",

Perdahl told Radio Sweden.

The rapid blood sample tests do not show whether a patient currently has covid-19 but rather whether they have developed antibodies against SARS COV-2, the virus that causes the disease. 

But just how reliable are the tests, currently being offered by four pharmacy chains, and do health authorities recommend taking them?
