On Thursday 27 August, The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel visited Greater Stockholm Paramedic Care (AISAB).

The visit began with The Crown Princess Couple learning about how the Stockholm region's paramedic care has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Crown Princess Couple were also given a tour of the ambulance station, and had the opportunity to speak with specialist nurses, paramedics and doctors about their experiences.

They were also shown ambulances and one of the three medical intensive care units, which are equipped to transport patients with special care needs between different care units. The vehicles have been adapted to provide the same intensive care as at a hospital intensive care department.

The main aim of the visit was to meet paramedic staff and to find out about their work during the pandemic.

The Royal Family and the COVID-19 pandemic

The Royal Family are keen to show their support for the initiatives being carried out by society to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Royal Family are staying informed about how the pandemic is affecting Sweden via discussions, digital meetings and visits.

These visits are planned based on current recommendations, and every effort is being made not to take up time and resources unnecessarily.
