Science Forum Covid-19 is the group of researchers and doctors that together dissimente science-based knowledge about the major issues and challenges that the ongoing pandemic has posed to the world and our country. Our mission is to save lives and prevent all forms of suffering in the Covid-19 pandemic. We aim to provide an unbiased assessment of the ongoing scientific discussion to find the best path to handle the pandemic through scientifically informed and ethical decisions. The overall goal is to minimize the impact of Covid-19.
Folkhälsomyndigheten lade på sin hemsida den 31 augusti 2020 upp en lista med publicerade studier om den smittbegränsande effekten av munskydd, en lista som uppdaterades och utökades den 30 november. Det är en vederhäftig lista, och endast den inbördes ordningen av studierna är lite missvisande. Listan börjar med fyra artiklar som ger relativt svagt stöd för nyttan med munskydd, och följs sedan av cirka fyrtiofem artiklar som relativt samstämmigt ger stöd för munskyddens smittbegränsande effekter vid Covid-19. I Folkhälsomyndighetens lista bifogas här, i gult, ett exakt citat från varje studie, där studiens slutsats framgår

A WEB ARTICLE: In english. This article supplements and expands on the article in Dagens Nyheter 2020/10/01. Sweden’s FHM and the press were stating most of the summer and into early September that our case numbers were going down and were lower than many other countries in Europe. But tests are too easily manipulated and in Sweden the test rate does not match the death rate when we compare to our neighbours in September. Read it here.
This autumn, a second covid-19 wave sweeps across Europe, and many countries have introduced drastic restrictions. In Sweden, we also already appear at the beginning of a major wave of infections. The rapid increase in detected cases, and the increase in the number of intensive care patients indicate this. Therefore, we must act now. The government should first urgently address the immediate threats and not reduce restrictions. We must then begin a constructive discussion to devise a long-term and sustainable strategy. This should apply the principles of the WHO Code of Ethics: transparency, inclusiveness, consistency and accountability. Read the whole Call to action here.

Scientific evidence and studies showing the importance of pre- and asymptomatic transmission.
On this page you will find a list of studies, either scientific studies or government reports on children, schools and the spread of infection. There are now studies that show that children between the ages of 10 and 17 are as contagious as adults, and even younger children, although they may possibly be so to a somewhat lesser degree.there are now studies showing that children between the ages of 10 and 17 are as contagious as adults; even younger children can be contagious, although it might be to a somewhat lesser degree.
There are many questions about mouth protection and face mask in connection with covid-19. Here we try to answer the questions and find out why we in Vetenskapsforum covid-19 recommend the use of mouth guards.
Today, there are over 70 studies that, in an overall assessment, provide convincing scientific support for the use of mouth guards to reduce the spread of society. Here we address some of the most essential.
