“the Last days were depressing”: Criticism of Sweden’s Corona strategy

Sweden followed in the pandemic, a different strategy than most of the other European States. There are no output restrictions; schools, Restaurants, and sports are open sites, as before. The government called on the people merely to keep a distance to your fellow man and to work from home. So far, the country has relatively low infection numbers: Monday 7206 people on Coronavirus, 477 died diseased, according to official figures.

The criticism of the Swedish exceptionalism, however, will always be louder. A nurse from the University hospital of Uppsala posted about a call for help on Social Media – the place, since then, a lot of attention, the post has been shared over 40,000 Times. In the post you published on Facebook, complained to Anne Rosendahl, the sudden increase of the Corona-patients and the associated effort. “The last few days have been overwhelming, now the patients with Covid-19 flow really to us, and you are ill, very seriously ill. Of which we currently look after, is a half younger than 50 years. And not everyone has pre-existing conditions.“ To do this, you published a photo of himself, which makes the exhaustion through the strain of the last hours. “We are in an unprecedented Situation.”

Rosendahl also wrote of the human efforts that is causing the Corona location in your hospital. Colleagues would cancel holidays and parental leave, out of retirement to come back to work Overtime, and other departments to the intensive care unit switch. “Staff from other clinics come to us.” Finally, she was still an appeal to their fellow citizens, to keep “the existing rules”. The behavior of today will have an impact on “how things are in two weeks in my Job”.

The Swedish government aims in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, in the meantime, temporarily more powers. “We see the need to act quickly if the Situation requires it. In the end it comes to protecting people’s lives,” said health Minister Lena Hallengren on Monday. In the case of the Opposition, a draft law provoked criticism. Andres Kudacki/AP/dpa

the new rule could restrict the government without the consent of the Parliament, public meetings and shops close. The additional powers would initially apply only for three months. The Parliament must approve the bill.

the head of The Conservative, Ulf Kristersson, acknowledged that there is a need to Act quickly in times of crisis. However, crisis measures would need to be legitimized “democratically,” he said.
