A large proportion of deaths worldwide have occurred among elderly living in nursing homes. Sweden is no exception with a comparable proportion making up around half of all deaths. The elderly, frail individuals living in nursing homes are among the most vulnerable and with the highest risk to die of covid-19. In spite of that we see almost two-thirds of the infected are still alive with a majority recovering fully after receiving treatment at the nursing home. Of 8?057 residents living in nursing homes in Stockholm, 1?464 (18?%) individuals have so far been diagnosed with covid-19 and 532 have died (6?% of all residents). Importantly, this means that a great majority of the residents are still alive including almost two-thirds (932/1?464) of the infected individuals.
