    Default So Much For Sweden

    Remember when all the COVID-is-a-hoax covidiots were telling us how smart and clever Sweden was for not instituting social distancing, shutdowns of certain businesses, and stay-at-home orders? It turns out that they were dead wrong. They have one of the highest mortality rates in the world, and they did not save their economy either.

    From Johns Hopkins Coronavirus email updates:

    "SWEDEN Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Sweden has stood out as a case study of an alternative approach responding to the virus. In contrast to many other nations, Sweden did not implement strict mandatory social distancing measures. Rather, Sweden encouraged social distancing but largely limited mandatory restrictions to a prohibition of gatherings of greater than 50 people. Sweden has reported COVID-19 mortality among the highest per capita in the world, including compared to other Nordic countries, which have reported significantly fewer deaths. In an interview with Swedish radio, Dr. Anders Tegnell of the Swedish Public Health Agency noted that the Swedish COVID-19 response has room for improvement, particularly with respect to Sweden’s COVID-19 mortality. In a subsequent interview, Dr. Tegnell emphasized that Sweden’s approach was implemented based on available information, and it is unclear at this time how Sweden should have reacted differently. In particularly, Swedish officials officials have acknowledged that the COVID-19 response did not provide adequate protection for high-risk individuals, such as older adults residing in nursing homes. While Sweden’s COVID-19 response permitted stores, restaurants, and other businesses to continue operating, the continued economic activity does not appear to have prevented a financial crisis. Unfortunately, due to the heavy reliance on exports, Sweden’s Minister of Finance Magdelena Andersson notes that Sweden may face its worst recession since World War 2. The Swedish government has committed to establishing a commission to evaluate the nation's strategy for responding to COVID-19."

    I've been saying it for months and will say it some more, there is no future worth living for, no more sunshine to brighten this eternal night. There will be no recovery in our lifetime. Accept it, because anything else is more fantastical than the works of Tolkien.

    What matters is the tally sheet after this Bug Out Of China has run its course, to include the economic damage....not were we are right now....that is how Best must be decided.

    If only we Americans were big enough and smart enough to admit that we did the same thing far too often.

    Consequences play a part in every effort or lack of effort ever known to mankind!

    Sometimes, you can't afford to do something. Sometimes, you can't afford to "not" do something.

    Time decides most consequences.

    As for Sweden, Time has weighed in, and the consequences of "not" doing certain things are "not" looking good!
