The situation in Sweden is the same as earlier in Britain, with the schools open (kindergarten and Years 1-9) and the tubes running. Sweden has adopted the same “pretending-strategy” as Britain , only worse. We have our own “alps” for people that like to go skiing downhill, and at the foot of our mountains there are “apres-skis” with bars: OPEN! Now new reports are coming in that 50% of those infected with coronavirus don´t show any symptoms. This scary information comes from two studies made independently of each other: one from the “Diamond Princess” cruise ship, and one from a little village in the Italian alps. In Umeå, we (the Workers Party group) want a ban on visits to old people’s homes. (Today there are “limitations” which will be interpreted differently in different homes.)
Sweden had 4,300 intensive
care sites with respirators. Today the number is only 526! All those cuts and the
new liberal economic policies have taken away seven out of eight intensive care
sites with respirators. And as a result, people will die unnecessarily.
