- ^ Data on cases and deaths is compiled by Folkhälsomyndigheten on weekdays (except Mondays) at 14:00 (CET). Swedish authorities do not publish data on recoveries. Reports of new cases and deaths to Folkhälsomyndigheten might be delayed by up to several days, possibly introducing delays in reported number of cases for the last few days of data. Reports include deaths with a confirmed Covid-19 diagnosis where the cause of death is not attributed to Covid-19. As of data from the National Board of Health and Welfare from 21 April 2020, this number amounted to 4.5% of cases confirmed in a laboratory. Data includes confirmed cases (ICD-10 U07.1) but excludes non-confirmed cases (ICD-10 U07.2). As this only include cases confirmed in a laboratory, the actual number is believed to be higher due to the number of laboratory-confirmed cases only amounting to 70% (as of 3 May 2020) of an excess mortality observed in Sweden since late March, according to an statistical analysis by the Public Health Agency based on data from the Swedish Tax Agency and the European mortality monitoring activity (EuroMOMO). By late April, there had been approximately 2,800 excess deaths in Sweden.
- ^ On 27 August 2020, Folkhälsomyndigheten announced that the use of faulty test kits made by BGI Biotechnology (Wuhan) Co. Ltd. had led to about 3,700 tests wrongly attributed as positive. As a result, they were removed from the cumulative number of cases. On 2 September 2020, an additional 200 cases were removed for the same reason.
- ^ As of 31 March 2021, 32 deaths have been registered with an unknown date. These deaths have not been included in this table. The total number of deaths (including dated and undated deaths) is 13,498.
