COVID-19 in Swedish intensive care

The Swedish Intensive Care Registry receives data reported on the cases of Covid-19 ending up in Swedish intensive care units. The speed at which SIR receives data depends on local reporting procedures and local IT systems. Therefore, more patients may be in Swedish intensive care units without being included in this report.

The number of patients differs from the number of care sessions because some patients have been transferred from one intensive care unit to another. The age gap between the youngest and the oldest admitted to the intensive care unit due to Covid-19 is large. At the moment, the majority are men.

  • NOTE that data and reports are cumulative data and show numbers who have or had intensive care.
  • It is NOT clear how many patients with Covid-19 are currently admitted to Swedish intensive care units.
  • We do not have up-to-date/complete information about possible discharges or any deceased as there is a delay in this information from the healthcare providers. If a patient has left intensive care, it is still included in the figure.

We plan to publish daily updates of the table. Updated 2020-04-01 at 14:12
