  • Thank you Dr. Anders Tegnell, you and Sweden done it good. It's hard to comment what most of the World done in the last 3 months.

  • Here in Sweden we are chilling though i think Tegnell should have closed the borders when shit started getting out of hand in italy it works fine. Mostly old people who dies which sucks but the facts are a bit bent. It makes it sound like all types of people are dying left and right which is just not true. Even by the latest reports they seem to fail to mention the average age of most people who have died from the virus.

  • As a young woman who is living in Sweden and has been under quarantine with my boyfriend for 2 months who has had a really bad case of Coronavirus even though he is 26 and who has had a close friend here whose Grandpa just died of Coronavirus from going to the hospital for something unrelated i'm not sure how well the system is working to keep people safe. I'm happy that there is still freedom to go places and shop but it feels like unless you keep the most vulnerable people indoors everybody will catch the virus. I myself have most likely caught it but haven't had any symptoms since my boyfriend had it and I never got sick like him. We are about an hour away from Stockholm. So maybe the herd immunity thing is working or I just have a good immune system? idk

  • Sweden is not a example of how to do it. They are a great example of how to do it in Sweden. Higher education, less population, more trust in the government, more responsiblity towards others. It's a very special country in so many ways. What happens in a different country, look at Italy. They first did the same thing Sweden did. Encourage people to behave reasonably. They didn't. So it's proof that encouraging your citizens to behave reasonably has completely different outcomes in practise. Here in Switzerland many people don't think Corona is a big problem, but basically everyone is following the rules. So you have people complaining, but people still follow the rules, with no enforcement necessary. In Italy people had to be forced by police. People and cultures differ so much it's futile to think one approach will work the same everywhere.

New York: 25000 (twenty-five thousand) persons per square mile. All three a total of about 10 million people in total. Don't compare the incomparable.

  • I have read that Sweden's constitution would not allow such a shut down. Ours really doesn't either but no one has stopped governments from doing it. Some believe that health emergency declarations allow elected leaders to allow draconian measures for 28 days but shutdowns for months should be declared unconstitutional.

    • No, but they took it very seriously from an early stage. They jumped on it hard with testing, tracing and quarantining, social distancing and mask wearing, so they didn't need a full lockdown.... "“But citizens have taken it upon ourselves to stay inside. We’re very careful to wash our hands and keep our distance. Almost everybody is wearing masks. If you don’t wear masks, you get looks on the street.” www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/05/whats-south-koreas-secret/611215/

  • Most deaths amongst ALL Scandinavian countries. Most infections amongst Scandinavian countries. And also heading into a recession, anyway. No, Sweden was rather heartless to its own people - many of whom went into voluntary lockdown out of dismay for their government.

    Brent TollmanBrent TollmanDag sedan
  • I’m from Sweden and basically what’s happening is that we will reach immunity faster. The rest of the would is just delaying the spread and therefor the death toll. As long as there are free beds at the hospital we are cool. PS: none of those hospitalized get a bill afterwards

  • It’s because our (Sweden) government don’t know how to handle it. You can see the results of this approach if you look the statistics. Denmark, Germany and Norwegian is doing way better then Sweden. I see the news saying 1/3 of the people in our capital will soon be infected. And the biggest thing is that sweden don’t give testing to everyone. Our government have totally lost it for a long time. And this is just proof of it

  • Supermarkets all over Sweden are really suffering from costumer negligence for the recommended social distancing. People are also starting to get lazy with the regulations and gather in larger groups a lot. This man is a dreamer. I am sure many people in Sweden know that as well as I do. Now, that’s the reason for him claiming that it is difficult for people to trust him.

    Mattias JaakkonenMattias JaakkonenDag sedan
  • These guidelines worked well in the beginning, the first few weeks. Stockholm was more or less empty, like a ghost town. Now people are starting to ignore the guidelines. It's not like before but there are plenty of people in bars and restaurants. If 10% of the population don't follow the guidelines it's enough to ruin the strategy. In my opinion the strategy is not working.

    Amar DAmar DDag sedan
  • I’m a Swede and I think it’s appalling how Tegnell can sit there and say “we’re shocked over the deaths and how poorly equipped the nursing homes were” when he and the government did FUCK ALL about it. A toddler could have understood it months ago, how hard it would hit the nursing homes if no precautions were taken. And what’s really amazing is how they still don’t use face masks or anything at the nursing homes. And they don’t use it at clinics either, nor hospitals (unless they are working with covid patients). I imagine this is what this sad excuse of an epidemiologist was thinking: We have a dangerous disease that’s the most harmful to elderly, what do we do? 1) nothing, and hope the nursing homes just deal with it themselves, lol. Oh and we - as the only country in the world - don’t believe in face masks, not even people working with health care and elderly need those pesky things! 2) make guidelines for the country’s nursing homes, make sure they’re properly equipped and that they understand the risks. Focus and protect the at risk population. Guess which choice he and the government (that by the way has gone awol) chose? Still today, after this idiot has been “shocked” for months, nursing homes and clinics dealing with elderly still only use hand sanitizer at most.. For months have we fought with my almost 90 year old grandfather’s caretaker (it’s like regional ambulant nurses going around to many different people during the day, they visit him about 5 times a day) to please use face masks and to NOT be inches from his face when they’re talking to him. It doesn’t matter that he has a poor hearing, YOU CANT FUCKING BE THAT CLOSE TO HIM RIGHT NOW. Guess what?? We still have to fight for it, and it’s end of May already and almost 4000 people dead. And they’re still not using facemasks. Why? Because the idiot Tegnell says facemasks don’t help 🤪

They claimed that because care home deaths were about 50% of Sweden's total, that this somehow explained the high overall Swedish mortality. It doesn't. Other countries also had high percentages of overall deaths in their care homes eg Norway with 60%.

  • (Updated for May 24.) Annika Linde, Anders Tegnell's predescessor, Sweden's state epidemiologist from 2005-2013, says Sweden has got its COVID-19 reponse wrong. www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/24/sweden-wrong-not-to-shut-down-says-former-state-epidemiologist www.tagesspiegel.de/politik/fast-4000-coronavirus-tote-in-schweden-wir-sind-in-einer-schrecklichen-situation-gelandet/25855760.html It's now May 23, 22 days after Anders Tegnell was interviewed by Trevor Noah. Sweden's official COVID-19 death toll is now 3,925 compared to 2,854 on May 5, an increase of 1,071, a 38% increase. Sweden's COVID-19 fataility rate has increased from 288/million to 396/million. Even the US hasn't exceeded 300/million. Sweden's fatality rate is now the highest in Europe since May 5, and the Swedes are naturally defensive, while Denmark, Norway, Germany, France, South Korea, Taiwan, and the PRC are all reopening with fewer TOTAL new cases, fatalities, and action plans to dealt with outbreaks, even though almost all of them have far greater populations than Sweden. There is opposition to the status quo in Sweden, and the flowers to memorialize the dead stack up. Most respected economists don't believe Sweden will benefit economically from the no lockdown policy. WIth World War II in mind, it seems clear what Sweden's cultural priorities are -- a high value on life isn't at the top. It would be nice to hear what Alfred Nobel would have to say about what's going on in 2020 Sweden. There is no reason why things have to stay the way things are in Sweden except for the Swedes themselves. If that's not their choice, then someone like Tengell will have to say it. Otherwise, Sweden be damned -- just let it keep to itself (to protect the rest of the world), stubborn and deluded.

  • The COVID v flu comparison has been made endlessly for months, mainly by people like Donald Jonah Trump, Boris Johnson in the UK, Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, and Anders Tegnell's mentor, Johan Giesecke, in Sweden. They are directly responsible for the excessively large death tolls in their countries. The flu comparison wasn't valid in January or February or March or April. It's still not valid. It's becoming less valid over time. It's ignorant propaganda rather than science. There weren't lorryloads of coffins/bodies coming out of Italian hospitals in the flu season. There weren't mass graves being dug in Brazil during flu season. The world COVID death toll is already past 340,000 and still rising steeply, even if it has slowed a little. And confirmed cases are still rising steeply, with no slackening. A second wave this year is regarded as being quite possible, even likely. There is no vaccine. There is no treatment. In late February, New York announced "A Record 131,604 Lab-Confirmed Flu Cases Reported This Season". How many confirmed COVID cases has New York had so far? Over 350,000. And lastly, COVID is in addition to flu, not instead of it. Time to retire the "little flu" canard.

  • I am a Swede, thank you for sharing our reality with your viewers. We are not under lock down but we get frustrated with the limitations we have here as well, but at the same time we believe in our government and Anders Tegnell. They have done a great job so far keeping us safe, financially and psychologically. Unfortunately the death toll is mostly related to elderly homes, but they are now doing everything in their power to make sure that it won´t happen again in the future. The society is changing and we are learning a new way of life and together we will make it.

    • Privat och äldrevård hör inte ihop. Girighet har dödat dom äldre. VINSTER till aktieägarna är viktigare så tänker dom. Vänta bara dom ska få sitt straff när corona ebbat ut.

  • Here in Ireland many of the measures the health authorities and government introduced to combat the virus have been followed also, willingly and not by government diktat. No-one has forced older people to stay home but they do so because they trust the authorities. No-one is forcing people to socially distance or wash their hands but we do so. Sweden is not the only country where people can be trusted to do the right thing if given accurate and reliable information.

  • All failed! Economy went bad anyways and we had way more deaths than All the Scandinavian numbers together. Only 8% in Stockholm had corona and a lot of people lost their jobs

    • @Lenin our savior I will explain this to you: The reason why they've decided to keep people at work and Sweden "open" it's because they wanted to keep people at work and the economy running. This said unfortunately not even the people got afraid and start not going to do shopping anymore, bars, streets empty etc, therefore that brought especially Stockholm to have way less economy running anyways. So despite they meant to keep the economy running while focus only on targeting "some" of the issues, data today 23rd of May are showing the facts of a complete disaster. And this is a correct and objective answer at your question. There's plenty of data online you can search if you like. My only hope is that they will bring some other measures, ASAP- Also the gov only gave money to people jobless with high salary's positions. So who was with lowest salary in January cannot access to their "support" as well. It's not equal and not a victory at all. Stay safe x

  • Tegnell is full of bullshit!!! We have the highest death rate in the world even that there just showing the deaths from intensive care and not from people that are dying in old nursing homes or people dying home. The real numbers are above 5000 deaths and if you compare that Sweden is around 10 million, its like having 165000 deaths in the US. So is Tegnell doing a good job as he is saying? I live in Sweden and I must say NO he is not. People are dying and nobody is even doing or telling the public what's really going on.

  • Trevor I'm from Sweden, why don't you ask him what category of people are dying? Why don't you ask him of what they are dying? Why don't you ask him how many of the deaths reported have nothing to do with Covid19. 90% of the dead are all over 70 years old, the other 10% had other health problems. 99% did not die from covid19 they died of old age, or other health problems they had. 99% of the Covid19 cases are marked as covid19 but have very little to do with covid19, they are marked as covid19 do to the order from the top that they must mark them as Covid19 for safety or other reasons. Best greetings from Sweden
