STOCKHOLM: The Swedish government said on Thursday (Jul 2) it had extended temporary restrictions introduced in March on entries to the European Union through Sweden to Aug 31.

The restrictions, aimed at slowing the COVID-19 pandemic, are for unnecessary trips to Sweden from countries other than those in the EU, Britain, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
