Coronavirus Outbreak [COVID-19]

Meanwhile , in Sweden!



While every other country in Europe has been ordered into ever more stringent coronavirus lockdown, Sweden has remained the exception. Schools, kindergartens, bars, restaurants, ski resorts, sports clubs, hairdressers: all remain open, weeks after everything closed down in next door Denmark and Norway.


Universities have been closed, and on Friday, the government tightened the ban on events to limit them to no more than 50 people. But if you develop symptoms, you can still go back to work or school just two days after you feel better. If a parent starts showing symptoms, they’re allowed to continue to send their children to school.


It has only been in the past couple of days that the death toll has started to increase significantly, rising by a third in a single day on Thursday and Friday, with 92 people now dead and 209 in intensive care. As he announced the tighter restrictions on Friday, the prime minister, Stefan Löfven, warned that the coming weeks and months would be tough.

............................

Anders Tegnell, Sweden’s state epidemiologist, believes it is counterproductive to bring in the tightest restrictions at too early a stage. “As long as the Swedish epidemic development stays at this level,” he tells the Observer, “I don’t see any big reason to take measures that you can only keep up for a very limited amount of time.”

His team at the Public Health Agency of Sweden is critical of the Imperial College paper that warned this month that 250,000 people in the UK would die if the government failed to introduce more draconian measures. A week later Johnson ordered the police to implement a partial lockdown to combat the virus, telling people they “must stay at home”.

“We have had a fair amount of people looking at it and they are sceptical,” says Tegnell. “They think Imperial chose a number of variables that gave a prognosis that was quite pessimistic, and that you could just as easily have chosen other variables that gave you another outcome. It’s not a peer-reviewed paper. It might be right, but it might also be terribly wrong. In Sweden, we are a bit surprised that it’s had such an impact.”

Just saw a interview with the CDC head.

25% of the people who get this remain totally asymptomatic yet they can still spread the disease.

So eventually you have a nurse or nurses aid who carries it in to a nursing home and brings in the infection.

It is 3 times as contagious as the flu...

My mom's entire nursing home was closed because old people spread this like crazy. 100 patients infected. My parents and sister got it through them.

Damn it man!
My parents are fine actually. They're 11 days in and my mom just ran 3 miles on her treadmill... Her worst symptoms were muscle pain, she couldn't walk for nearly a week without intense pain, now she can run but it still hurts a bit.

My dad had the worst cough for nearly 10 days, it's finally subsiding. My sister who is also a nurse got it from my mom and she's still a bit sick.

But yea 5 people in my family got it just because of the exact same situation where no one knew.

Okay here’s Pence on stage, he’s waving a card with ‘30 days to stop the spread’.
I am sure he was on stage three days ago saying, ‘we are on day 8 of 15 days to stop the spread’

has Trump officially binned the ‘15 days to stop the spread’ bollocks?

The US figures are pretty awful at the moment but we should bear in mind that it is a massive land mass and population, which when compared against Europe as a block which is a more equal comparison, the EU is closing in on half a million confirmed cases and 30,000 deaths... the US is realistically a good week or two behind the EU but it's not really even hit into 2nd gear on the west coast yet... I'd think 100,000 deaths are low-ball figures personally.

10889

The next 3 weeks aren't going to be pretty for the EU or the USA unfortunately.

Looking at it in terms of geographical blocks is another reason why we know the numbers for China's block of one and half billion people is complete horseshit.

I know you're a conservative guy but have you figured out that Trump is a narcissistic moron who needs to be slow walked carefully by his handlers towards making the correct calls?

Authoritarian dictatorships just immediately have an upper hand in situations like this, interestingly for me, that's why the riots popping up in Wuhan are note-worthy... those fuckers will just flat out kill you for even criticising them and this virus has people out there smashing shit up... not caring about the consequences.

I think they'll be carrying the dead out from their apartments all over Hubei and we'll never hear about it.

The US are probably in the worst position when it comes to locking down, Euros are still fairly subservient and don't mind government taking control of things and telling them what to do... large portions of the US will see this as "the Gub'ment trying to take muh rights n guns away" and you won't keep those people in until half their town are falling around them.
