Re: It's official, Sweden declare themselves the Covid winners

You mean why am I picking you up on your silly statements and not others? That's your defence? No, as I've said multiple times, it's not the same as a cold.

Not being touched by the IT, RTE etc. It's either churtains for Varadkar, or the magazine.
It's on the Indo and has hit mainstream in terms of Varadkar being called to respond to the comments in the Dail. He's preparing a statement.

Re: It's official, Sweden declare themselves the Covid winners

There are currently around 20k in ICU in Europe. Stopping the spread is more to do with the hospital system not breaking down rather than the IFR. Well that and trying to avoid it getting into care settings.

The hard part is knowing exactly what to do and more importantly when to stop the spread

The outlier, for want of a better word, is the UK in all this and probably as a result of the Brexit polarisation. Northern Europe is generally more 'obedient' with more policing by consent. If you set a more extreme policing method up then it's easier to rail against. Someone mentioned to me today ...

Sorry Mog, forgot to get back to you. I couldn't care less what anyone else is comparing it to. You have compared it to a bad cold. So back that up with comparable figures for ICU and general hospitalisations. I'd be surprised if a bad cold has ever put thousands in ICU in any given year though.
