  1. Good luck to Sweden right now, they’re going to need it.

  2. They have taken minimal preventative measures up until this point. We’re likely going to see a major spike in the coming weeks.

  3. The mistake made was not testing/quarantine *everyone* coming in from abroad. The early days of infections was absolutely ridiculous (when there was < 100).

    It was like oh 10 are infected… 9 of them come from Italy. Then 30 is infected. 28 of them come from Italy. Then 60 is infected. 56 of them come from Italy. Then 100 is infected, 95 of them of come from Italy.

    There was a trend somewhere in there… Yet absolutely nothing was done to mitigate it. I dont even think we would have been at half the numbers we are today if this had been strangled in its infancy. It was also an “unlucky” time for the virus because it happened just for the return of holidays (“sports holiday week” when people go skiing etc). That’s why we got a massive surge of people infected in Italy and all around Europe.

  4. Well we needed a control country and Sweden just kind of volunteered

  5. That peak is going to sting.

  6. So herd immunity not working?

  7. Only 401? Do Ikea do flat pack coffins yet?
