Sweden on lockdown: Country to bring in local shutdowns to fight coronavirus crisis

Swedish authorities to bring in local lockdowns as coronavirus cases rise - after country resisted harsh restrictions and relied on social distancing to halt the spread at the peak of the pandemic
  • Local lockdowns mark a new approach in Swedish authorities' handling of covid
  • The Scandinavian country kept restaurants open at the start of the pandemic
  • Coronavirus cases have been gradually increasing since the start of September
  • A seven-day average of 65 per million people per day was reported on Friday
Swedish authorities want to bring in local lockdowns to stem the rapid spread of coronavirus in the country, experts have revealed.

The move marks a new approach in Sweden's handling of the virus - after the country kept bars and restaurants open while the rest of the world shut down in March.

'It's more of a lockdown situation - but a local lockdown,' Johan Nojd, who leads the infectious diseases department in Uppsala, told The Telegraph.

It comes as several European nations put into effect new measures and restrictions in an effort to curb the second wave of the coronavirus rapidly spreading across the continent, with cases skyrocketing.

Coronavirus cases have been gradually increasing since the start of September, dashing Sweden's hopes for immunity.

A seven-day average of 65 per million people per day was reported to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control on Friday. This is compared to 71, 40 and 25 cases per million in Denmark, Finland and Norway.

The new rules, expected to come into force on Monday, will allow regional health authorities to ask citizens to avoid public places such as shopping centres, museums, libraries, swimming pools, concerts and gyms.

Authories could also ask people to stay away from public transport or avoid visiting elderly or at-risk groups. The rules would be offered as guidelines rather than requirements with the country continuing to avoid fines.




Australian expats in Sweden share what life is like under the country's unconventional pandemic approach


Wendy Luttrell lives in Skellefteå, a city of around 32,000 people in the country's north-east, with her Swedish partner and their newborn baby.

Ms Luttrell's only lived in Sweden since December, and said she was initially critical of the country's response, especially after hearing about Australia's approach.

She said she questioned why the country didn't lock down, and why nobody was wearing masks, but said she had since changed her mind.

"I finally saw how it works here because people don't seem to break rules … and people are really good at following guidelines," she said.



Oh dear, looks like the Fake Tards who backed the Swedish model got it wrong.

Much ado about nothing , A Casedemic without deaths .We are being 'played' again by the Fake News Media.
It is winter flu season in the Northern Hemispere, and they are equating seasonal flu symptoms with Cov.
Besides the PCR test is notoriously unreliable in distinguishing between ,colds ,flu and Cov, they are all in the same family of viruses.
This was always on the cards with the Scamdemic creators , an attempt to discredit Sweden as one of the few intelligent Govt's refusing to be panicked into useless draconian restrictions.

Can we start talking about Sweden imposing any lockdown measures if and when Sweden imposes any lockdown measures which as of now they haven't.

I expect that if they do they will bear no resemblance to the lockdowns we have seen implemented in other countries, there will be minor restrictions implemented in small areas and rather than being imposed they will be explained to the population in a clear calm reasonable evidence-based manner with no scare tactics and no Police enforcing rules and regulations which will go to ensure that the population is kept on board meaning they will go along with the measures.

One thing to be certain of is that there will be no "Ireland-like" lockdowns imposed in Sweden.

My theory on Sweden is that being the most marxist/Globalist following country on the planet, they got a free pass.
Now the globalists see that too many plebs are asking questions, so they cant let Sweden away with it anymore.

It's just my opinion, I could also be well off the mark.

Yes it was strange that such a woke country diverged from the party line, I wondered abiut that.

Face masks and vitamin D supplementation are all that's needed.

Until widespread Vitamin D deficiency is addressed, face masks should remain mandatory in public spaces.

They don't stop the spread, but they slow it down and reduce the severity by minimising viral load.

Why aren't they addressing the Vitamin D issue though?

I've never heard anyone from NPHET or the government advising people to boost their immune system with Vit D, C, Zinc and getting fit .

One of the many reasons I'm very dubious about NPHET.
 
Anderson like his sister Bots can't make a statement or present facts without resorting to insults. Funny but I don't have the same inclination.
I wonder if it's anything to do with the fact that I'm dealing in logic while poor old Bots have to rely on rhetoric and emotion to try and get their way.

Just a thought.

But there is no proof of that. The discussion has been had with others on here, loads of studies but nothing irrefutable.

All the mask bullshit should be replaced with a concerted drive to get people fit and their immune systems humming. The government should be sending free Vitamin D to every household.

Would have been cheaper than a bullshit fearmongering leaflet pointing out all the levels of back-of-a-beermat restrictions on your personal freedoms.

That idiot Joe Jacob of FF sent iodine capsules to everyone back around 2001/2002, so why can't NPHET get their finger out.

Maybe its because Holohan and Co love playing God and controlling peoples lives.

It's not about health so why distribute Vit. D? An excellent idea nonetheless.
Covid is a pretext for crashing the global economy, do away with more pesky civil rights, and make concerted resistance very difficult through "lockdowns" and other restrictions.

Why not do both?
Vitamin D levels take a while to build up.

What we should be doing is ending most of the lockdown measures while simultaneously enforcing a zero tolerance policy on mask wearing and heavily promoting the supplementation of Vitamin D.

When Vitamin D deficiency is addressed and the public educated, then we can finally end the madatory mask requirement.
