On Monday 27 April, The King held a video audience with Mikael Tofvesson from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB).
During the digital audience, The King learnt about the work of MSB's unit for countering information influence.
Head of Global Monitoring and Analysis Mikael Tofvesson spoke in particular about how the agency is working to identify various types of information influence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the audience, Mr Tofvesson emphasised the importance of citizens always being critical of sources when researching information online.
Mr Tofvesson concluded by providing a status report on information influence targeted at Sweden and disinformation from foreign powers.
The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) is responsible for supporting society's preparedness for accidents, crises and civil defence, and for ensuring that social disruption is dealt with effectively in order to limit the consequences for society.
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.
