  • False news, Sweden has the highest death rate in terms of population

  • Since every one seems to talk about Sweden as a socialist country, have in mind that Americans pay taxes as well, have to save money in case of emergency, pay for insurence, school and(food), high propert taxes etc in the way i see it, in general, the swedes are coming out of this conversation as a winner as this starts to sound like a competition... Just saying. I have been alot in both countries and I will stand by a real United country > Go Sweden Go!

Great interview btw.I trust in our governmentand we are very lucky that Socialdemocarets are the governing party today. I work at the arbetslöshetskassan which is the employment fund and the experince during the right ruling party for the unmployeds was terrible. Socialdemocrates changed the law the time of few weeks so the employment fund was more available during this time so people got acces to income. The sad thing is that when this shit is over, people will forgett and go back to complain about the government again without knowing how much they have done behind the sheets.

Sweden have twice as many inhabitants as Norway fex (10 mill vs 5 mill) and in Norway 235 people have died of Covid-19 in Sweden its 20 times more deaths almost 4500). We are not loonies in The north just because some guy in Sweden decided a different approach than the rest. So patronizing. We co-operate great with other countries. We in the north, give most to people in need, poor countries etc. Wonder what country you are from (seems jealous for some reason)....and please explain your judgemental comment towards us in the north?

  • Interesting interview,.. I know some are unhappy with the measures Sweden have been doing and some are trusting the health agency advices. I’m not sure myself .. I really haven’t really noticed a huge difference myself. As the sun and warm weather now have arrived here in Sweden, I think some people are starting to forget to keep distance.. but this strategy it better for the mental health.. I think and it’s good that people can keep working. I’m glad I’m not working in an industry that is affected that much by these constraints.. like the tourist and travel industry.

  • The trams and buses are packed so social distancing does not work with stubborn people who think they can't get sick. The city of Gothenburg is thinking about how to save money and yet keep open every facility they have and keep telling the employees to keep social distancing but working with stubborn people it's very hard when the city is open. Sweden is taking a chance that the people will listen.

There was “a strong desire to find a solution with our neighbour, Sweden”, she added, but Denmark and Sweden “are in different places when it comes to the coronavirus, and this affects what we can decide on the border”. www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/29/norway-and-denmark-drop-mutual-border-controls-but-exclude-sweden-coronavirus

      Chris MurrayChris MurrayDag sedan
    • @Anakin Skywalker No, that's simply not true. Lots of others countries also count covid-19 deaths outside of hospitals*. Tegnell and Giesecke have been using this angle to "explain" the very high death toll in Sweden relative to its neighbours. It's a red herring. Norway, for example, has 60% of its deaths in care homes. But because they locked down early and hard, they kept the overall numbers way down compared to Sweden, both in hospitals, care homes, and the wider community. The Swedish numbers are not "quite low", Thousands of unnecessary deaths is not "quite low". Even Tegnell does not argue this. He said weeks ago that the then Swedish total of 3,000 deaths was a "horrifyingly large number". The Swedish total is now almost 4,400. * ltccovid.org/2020/04/12/mortality-associated-with-covid-19-outbreaks-in-care-homes-early-international-evidence/

  • "The death toll in Sweden is catastrophically high..........Sweden has a development that can only be compared to the US. Other countries with high death rates are starting to get a curve that slopes downhill. This is as a result of the strict anti-infection measures implemented in almost all countries. Sweden, on the other hand, has a curve that has flattened out, but remains at a high level day after day.our situation from a global perspective must be considered disastrous. If the Public Health Authority does not address this fact, it is high time that the decision-makers in our country, government and parliament do so."

    • @Anakin Skywalker See my other reply to you "No, that's simply not true. Lots of others countries also count covid-19 deaths outside of hospitals" etc. Also, lockdown is not a magic cure, meant to last forever. It's meant to buy time when other methods of control have failed. Germany (and presumably the other Nordics, and any other country with half-competent leaders) should now be well positioned to withstand any subsequent waves without lockdown. www.dw.com/en/coronavirus-germany-can-avoid-second-wave/a-53621681 Lastly, in most countries which heeded in time what was happening in Italy and took the virus seriously and took early, decisive action, there are currently rapid falls in cases and deaths, enabling those countries to reopen cautiously. with plans in place for any resurgence in the disease. In countries where ignorant, windbag, posturing, macho fools were in charge, the numbers are either still going up (Brazil) or are declining agonisingly slowly after relatively huge death tolls (the UK and US). Sweden seems to be in the latter camp ie new cases are NOT dropping much. And that would seem to be the policy.

      AuuxAuuxDag sedan
  • I think by the date of this interview, Tegnell should have known that the number of infected was only 7.3%, not anywhere the 25% expected. This is disappointing, as, had their strategy been effective, it might have provided a model, to deal with the almost inevitable 'second wave'. Their deaths per million is the highest in Europe. I'm also concerned that the level of responsibility shown by the community minded Swedes would not be replicated in other countries. I'm wondering how this experiment is being factored into the various conspiracy theories doing the rounds. Oh! Hang on... how's about the fact that Saab and other Swedish car makers are largely Chinese owned, um and something about 5G penetration (and I mean PENETRATION!) and the cold, umm, Northern Lights. Hang on, I got it, Trump has been taken over by the Chinese, the perfect Trojan horse, who intends to use 5G to 'bring the light' (mind controlling nanobots, more like.) into the body, using 5G optic fibres. Not that the virus, which was engineered in the USA and taken to China and released by accident deliberately, even exists. FFS Sheeple, catch up. Know why the SpaceX launch 'failed',? Because Trump was there and they couldn't fool him with their pretend launch into fake space.

  • Sweden's "strategy" (or rather lack of any real strategy) has proven to be catastrophic. Anders Tegnell is a slightly autistic madman stuck with old ideas and he's responsible for thousands of deaths that could have been avoided if someone else was in charge.

    • Actually no if you look at the Numbers, most of the deaths comes from earlier ppl home. And that isn’t his fault it’s because we where badly prepared with PPT and that comes from that Sweden haven’t been in war since like 1814 witch is like 206 years ago. So we’ve never needed to stockpile protection and stuff like that like the Norwegians and the Danish and especially the Finnish ppl. That’s a major factor to why our death toll is so high.

  • A few weeks ago Sweden asked for respiratory machines from Denmark and its neighbours. The only reason that these countries were able to help is because they had closed down and didn’t use all of them because of that. Swedens situation could have been compared to Spain and Italy were doctors had to make decisions on who lived and who died. It is the fact that they easily could get more machines that really saved them from that situation.... it’s important to keep in mind.

  • Do keep in mind that Sweden has the highest death toll among the Nordic countries per 100k people. This guy single handedly decided to wager his countrymen's lives on a rumor that herd immunity would spread throughout the people and prevent future infections. Except research has found no correlation in herd immunity having an effect on future infections, as some people who have had Corona have gotten sick from it again. Now what is commendable is the effort some people put into keeping social distance and how Sweden's economy is doing better than others. Sweden's approach is still ethically questionable, and anyone would be right to ask what a human life is truly worth in Sweden. Time will of course eventually tell which approach is best, and Sweden may very well come out on top here. The rest of the Nordic countries are highly critical of Sweden's approach, but in all honesty, the only answer anyone is going to get will be through hindsight. EDIT FOR FACT CHECKING: I stated that there have been cases of reinfection, but those were apparently false positives according to the WHO on May 7th. It's still too early to tell if reinfections will happen. My apologies for having dated information.

The stores are encouraging people to keep a distance as well and it's even written on the floor but people are still very close to each other! I had this lady bump into me because she couldn't wait a few seconds and her kids were coughing and sneezing without covering their mouth. So yes, an early quaratine would've been better to avoid this issue . Instead of encouraging people to stay at home it should have been more of an order for just a period of time.

    • Guildford Suxs Look at the difference between Norway and Sweden fex. 235 dead in Norway with Covid-19 while in Sweden the number is 20 times higher, and you have 10 mill inh, Norway has 5 mill. We had a strict approach early, they even changed some laws temporarily (so its possible). People respected what the authoroties asked of is people and almost everyone did their part.. I have been home more or less for almost 3 months, working from home, only out with the dog and to shop food. They even changed the law temporarily to make it a criminal act to visit your own cabin (if it was in another city/area than where you lived...to stop people from spreading the virus to small mountain villages where they had limited health care resources. Most people respected that and didnt go to the mountains partying in easter fex. They stayed home. Most Norwegians respected what was asked of us to stop the virus and help the elderly and the ones at risk from being sick. You see the difference between Norway and Sweden, right? If your leaders had done the same, maybe you could have saved almost 4000 people.

  • I am from Sweden and our death rate per capita has been the highest in the world for the last two days and the highest in the world seven out of the last fourteen days. My mother is a nurse at an old peoples home and they can't get ahold of protective gear, masks, suits, etc. Because Dr. Anders Tegnell the state epidemiologist has drawn the conclusion that healthcare staff at old peoples homes are not educated enough to be able to use protective gear. He publicly announced this on the news. Which is absolutely not the case! But it has lead to whole old people homes including the medical staff being infected, and allot of them have died. The health care staff is forced to work under these conditions or else they will be fired. Swedens approach to covid-19 is not based on science or common sense, it is based on cost. Money is a resource Sweden don't have right now and the Swedish approach is a reflection of that. They don't force people to go to work and schools because it is "good" for their mental health but because we don't have the recourses to impose a quarantine. They don't refuse medical staff protective gear because they cant use it but because we don't have the recourses. They don't turn to heard immunity because it's the best thing for the citizens but because they don't have the resources for any other approach. A very big chunk of the Swedish population don't trust the government, and a far larger number don't trust Tegnell. He is quite often on tv talking absolute blast which anyone fairly educated on the subject can understand. It is hard to believe because Sweden is a western first world country but there is a lot of lies, propaganda and coverups coming from the Swedish government.

  • You need to understand Demographics and Psychographics of Sweden and America To Understand Why? Being American I can tell you we have very different behavior of our people in our populated areas. Not like Sweden. Understand the difference in Culture.

    • @Leon Degrelleyour comment has some merit. This is a very complex problem. In my opinion, this country has a broken health care system because it has allocated many millions of dollars to take care of people that are not even a legal citizen. Non citizens that are poor which meets our countries definition of poor get free healthcare. We are the only country in the world providing free healthcare to non US citizens. #2) Medicaid has a huge amount of poor people in our country that are able to work which are trapped in a system of welfare that goes from generation to generation ( up to three generations today) that have not worked a day in their life. These people are stuck in a system that has zero incentive to leave when everything is FREE paid for by the working class American. If they go to work they lose their freebies. These are huge dollars waisted ( billions) every year which equate to hundreds of billions that are a huge liability to the system you would like to see for our country. Please understand this needs to be financially cleaned up where these families have a incentive to get off these programs and pay their fair share whatever that may be. I am only talking about the healthcare portion not the other programs that have same issue which include free rent to live, free electric, free water, free gas, free electric, free day care vouchers, free phones, free food, free private school vouchers, college education vouchers and many more that would take to long to list that all add up to about $55,000 to $75,000 per household in Freebies. Until this is fixed and we see incentive for many of the families to get up in the morning and try to get out of this trapped free program, then you are correct medicare and the overall healthcare system shall remain broken. Do you see my friend, this all inter- connects because there is only so many American Taxpayers. We need to fix this broken system. President Trump whether you hate or like him is fixing these complex issues. Please note: 1)a border wall stops illegalls coming in and getting freebies saving many millions of dollars ( not to mention he is eliminating child trafficing, and billions of dollars of drugs coming into our neighborhoods killing many). 2) returning these illegal aliens home opens up new jobs for many poor as described and cleans up are crime index. They now can get out of a broken welfare system where they have no incentive to givenup their freebies. This will save now manybillions of dollars. 3)If you have not noticed unemployment rates were all absorbed by having the lowest unemployment rates (pre covid 19) among all races and genders. Do you see this man is transactional on his approach to making decisions? he is cleaning up the huge mess of fifty years relieving this tax liability on the backs of all working americans. Healthcare will work. He will get it working. Understand this man and pray for this man because he is highly gifted in shifting wealth back to american working Patriots. Healthcare will be what you want it to be in time but all this needs to be fixed because there is only one bag of money ( few trillion dollars) he works with. Watch what he did on global tarriffs. Most americans do not know what a tarrif is. He has made world record on many trillions of dollars being redirected back into our american society. Keep in mind and study the facts who created all these freebie programs that spun out of control? Who and what party is continuing the entrapment of the poor in every major urban city in our country? You be the judge after taking your time researching the facts. God bless this President that took a step back in his own career to fix our country for No pay and all he gets is ridicule by the parties that are entrapping and enslaving good americans for generations. Please study study study! the facts before making a decision. The Fixing of our healthcare is very complex task because of all these taks are interlated issues and there is only one American budget to fix all this. This man is the first business man as commander and chief and he educated by one of the finest schools of economics and finance in the world University of Pennsylvania. Wharton! Understand his Mind. He is Genius! He Is The Only President in my Life that keeps his promises and has Proven to make America First on Every Decision He makes. God Bless.

  • What a great and informing interview! I did not expect that from a US talk show. I live in Denmark (12 miles from Sweden) and certainly follow the Doctor's perspective. Denmark followed the 'lock down' route, and it has worked very well so far, but there are few, if none, critics of the Swedish approach here - Denmark could have easily tried it that way. But the situation is still evolving, and will do for some months or years. Love Denmark, but I also respect Swedish academia and democracy - but as far as using this approach in the US? Not sure, it is very context dependent.

  • Will Swedish people consider this a success or will families who lost their loved ones sue their government representatives with manslaughter? When there are 3000 plus people dead, using the word as "success" by this doctor sounds so inhuman or heartless. It could have been three weeks of a maximum lockdown or about three months of semi-lockdown. Sweden will not spread the virus when other countries would have limited the spread. Pretty lame decision to not have a lockdown, in my opinion as in the second wave, Swedes will be responsible for the next outbreak.

  • Trevor, thank you for this interview. Very interesting. Sweden has national healthcare and their government is supplementing pay if someone needs to stay home to feeling ill. I'm sure they have their freeloaders but the few does not concern the government when it comes to the safety of the many. USA culture and politics is so behind and screwed up.

    • @Shirley HiebertThat is not correct. Norway DOES count COVID deaths in care homes: "On the 15th of April the Norwegian Institute of Public Health published data on the number of deaths linked to COVID-19 that have occurred in institutions/care homes for the first time. This has since been included in their daily report (7,8) published every day at 1pm. The most recent report from the 18th of May shows that, out of 233 confirmed deaths related to COVID19, 89 (38%) occurred in hospitals, 135 (58%) in health institutions (care homes and other institutions) and 3 (1%) in private homes. The Norwegian newspaper VG publishes detailed data on the location of all deaths, including care homes." ltccovid.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Mortality-associated-with-COVID-21-May-6.pdf

    • Norway doesn't count COVID deaths in nursing homes, only COVID deaths in hospitals. Most seniors in nursing homes aren't sent to hospitals for treatment. Many have DNR orders etc. Check out the over age 80 group and see how many are hospital admissions. Sweden counts nursing home deaths as well as hospital deaths. Sweden's nursing homes, which are large, were hit hard.
