Intensive care number of beds in use

This section shows the current intensive care situation. Bars show new Covid-19 patients that day lines show number of beds occupied, by Covid-19 patients as well as in total. The dashed line shows number of IC beds in Sweden right now (a number that has almost doubled in a month). Data on number of beds and total occupation is not complete as it is gathered from what is presented by Socialstyrelsen on daily press conferences so there might be some gaps and/or delays.

The second graph compares number of deaths to number of intensive care patients, cumulatively. If the number of intensive care patients does not increase along with the number of deaths this might indicate that there is now harder prioritization regarding who gets an IC bed.

About this site

Every day new official numbers are presented by Folkhälsomyndigheten and on the news but often without the proper context. On this site I try to present current data on Covid-19 that is interesting from a Swedish perspective, using charts that provide context and gives us an idea about what the current situation actually looks like.

Please carefully read the introductory text of the charts to better understand what I am trying to show and why. Also, note that several of the charts use a logarithmic scale by default, making an exponential increase look like a straight line. So always keep an eye on the y-axis and switch between the linear / logarithmic view to get a better feel for the data. To better understand exponential growth, have a look at the videos at the bottom of the page.
