Swedish Parents Locked Up Children For Months To Avoid COVID-19

Between March and early July, children, 10 to 17 years old, were kept isolated, and their family prohibited from leaving the apartment.

Their parents detained three children in Sweden for nearly five months, for fear of contracting the Coronavirus. The children were rescued from the home and taken into government care. The Swedish Administrative Court ruled that they would not be returned to their parents.

Between March and early July, children between the ages of 10 and 17 were isolated and the family forbidden to leave the apartment, children’s lawyer Mikael Svejfors told a local radio station.

“It’s an absolute clash between the way people think in different parts of the world,” Svigfors told the radio. “Children got caught up in this, and in fear of a pandemic, we should all be afraid in one way or another.”

The Guardian reported that the children were not allowed to see each other, as they were locked in their separate rooms, and the door appeared to be closed with wood panels. The parents are foreigners in the country.

However, parents deny holding the children against their will, saying that they are being educated at home, and planning to appeal against the mandatory care order.

At first, Sweden did not enforce a strict lockdown and kept schools open for children under 16. Next, the Scandinavian country has one of the highest rates of COVID-19 deaths in the world compared to the population, with 575 deaths per million, media reported.
