”With twice-weekly press conferences we will meet the needs of the media and the general public while also avoiding saturation for everyone involved. Our respective press offices will be reachable by the media as usual, around the clock and every day of the week, and if the situation should change we are prepared to increase the frequency of the press conferences again,” says Marcus Årskog, press officer at MSB.
The three government agencies have held press conferences about the covid-19 epidemic every weekday, except on public holidays, since the beginning of March.
Invitations to the press conferences for journalists, with links to the registration pages, are published at 08.00 on the day in question on the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s website.
The press conferences can always be watched live or afterwards, with Swedish subtitles and sign language interpretation, on the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s YouTube channel.
