Swedish king and queen test positive for COVID-19

“The King and Queen, who are fully vaccinated with
three injections, have mild symptoms and are feeling well, given the circumstances,”
the palace said in a statement.

The palace said the King, 75, and the Queen, 78, were
self-isolating and that work to trace those that they had been in contact with
was underway.

The news came as Sweden set a new daily record for COVID-19
cases amid a surge caused by the highly-infectious omicron variant.

The country registered 11,507 cases on Dec 30, health agency
data showed on Tuesday, as a fourth wave of the virus puts healthcare under
renewed pressure.
