Yes. It's still not real for people. The more the days goes on the more absurd the whole panic shutdown seems for people. And like I said there's other metrics connected to the different approaches to take into consideration that will be interesting, ... more »

If there is no second wave coming now that countries are letting their citizens out again you could argue Sweden's strategy failed (Even though there is more to it). But honestly even if that's the case I think a very big majority of the Swedish population ... more »

This thread made me rewatch Band of Brothers and crap did I appreciate the show and what these guys did even more now compared to 14-15 year old me who maybe lacked the perspective. True heroes, that last line really got me.

Not that I have heard of. Maybe there is such a law but I don't think there would have been a lockdown anyway.

I don't know a single person that I have heard say we should have followed all the other countries. A lot of people, including me, thought it took to long to reach the point where we are today and that they took it way to lightly in the beginning. For ... more »

Oh for sure. Just because something is working here doesn't mean it does all over the world. There are places in the world where more people have their retired parents living at home with the family, places where kids take longer to move out, more densely ... more »

We've been able to flatten the curve while keeping the society as open as possible. The big miss has been that they couldn't keep it out of retirement homes. The goal of the lockdown has never been to kill the virus because that's just not going to happen, ... more »

It was a Swedish power plants alarm system that eventually went off. Crazy

Hasn't it been proven, or is it just a theory, that the virus uses the ACE2 protein to establish itself in the body? And therefore medicin against high blood pressure, ibuprofen etc is said to increase the risk

I'd love to see him go over full time and try, just like I would love someone of the top Americans go over and try MXGP. Always fun when someone does the unexpected like that. What Villopoto did was so rad, unlucky it had to end earlier than intended. ... more »

The virus is out there now, so what's interesting is what will happen when the mandatory restrictions are lifted in other countries and people start to go to work, restaurants, gym, travel etc. Those second and third waves will surely hit those countries ... more »

I'm no doctor, but I know the southern Europeans likes their smokes. One could think that could also have an effect on their fairly high death rate

Same approach in Sweden while our Nordic brothers seem to take a much more strict approach to this whole thing. No more testing for the people neither so on paper it will probably look good

Ouf I remember similiar looking jump faces from the riding days in Holland/Belgium. Never admitted it but always enjoyed quads out on the track flatting them out and making it less scary
