And you don’t think the Great British public would have done the same?. You keep harping on about the deaths there’s more to it than that, do you think the Swedes are scared shirtless like our population and the problems that causes. All our health screening programs up the swanny nine months into the year and no annual bowel screening for the over 60s.They give us them every year because it’s that important to catch bowel cancer early. And like BPG points out the Swedish economy has kept the most robust in Europe.
Some would, but those whining about not carrying on as normal probably wouldn’t be the ones being sensible.
Wow. You treat ‘harping on about deaths’ as a bad thing; this disease is killing more in America per week than a singular 9/11 event. These deaths can be reduced if we take mitigatory action.
Protecting human life should be the utmost priority of any strategy we do take, yet you treat it as secondary to something like being able to keep Greggs afloat. Of course the economy is vital, and should be seen as important, but human life should be too; we need to find a suitable circumstance in which we can allow both to function as well as possible without any drawback which can be mitigated against. This means enforcing things like mask wearing, social distance and a workable test and trace scenario, Unfortunately, those who’ve moaned about taking action have shown very little care about pushing forward any mitigatory measure. We might be a little bit more able to keep jobs and the economy flowing if we accepted that we need to behave differently for the foreseeable, which means socially distancing, minimising contact indoors and wearing masks, instead of treating it as some ridiculous attempt to enforce some global tyranny through control of population for whatever reason. The fact that people have whined about such makes me think we wouldn’t have acted like the Swedish public if rules were less strict.
I’d say the Swedes who self-isolated were as ‘scared shitless’ as any Brit who did the same, voluntarily or otherwise.
