The main epidemiologist of Sweden Anders Tegnell believes that the actions of his country who decided not to quarantine and coercive measures of isolation in the fight against COVID-19 are correct. According to him, fall the second wave of infection, but the Swedes will have a higher level of immunity compared to the inhabitants of those countries who have gone the Chinese way of combating the virus.In an interview with the British Financial Times and CNBC, the main Swedish epidemiologist Anders Tegnell once again defended the tactics of Sweden to combat coronavirus COVID-19. The Swedish authorities chose not prohibitive, and Advisory in approach, advising people not to accumulate, to carefully observe personal hygiene and special protection measures were introduced for people from the area at risk, mostly elderly.By now Sweden has a population of 10 million people officially recorded 23.9 per thousand cases of infection and 2941 death from coronavirus, of which about half occurred in nursing homes. In neighboring Finland, with a population of 5.5 million people recorded 5.6 thousand infections and 255 deaths. In Norway, with 5.4 million population — 8 thousand cases and 217 deaths in Denmark from 5.8 million population, 10.2 thousand cases and 514 deaths.Despite the fact that in neighboring Sweden, the countries that have imposed more stringent measures, while there are lower numbers of cases and deaths, Anders Swedish Tegnell considers tactics more correct in the long run. “Autumn is a second wave (of coronavirus.— “Kommersant”). In Sweden at that time will be a higher level of immunity and the number of infections is likely to be low— said the Swedish doctor FT.— And Finland is the very low level of immunity. And that Finland would again impose strict quarantine?”He believes that Sweden’s approach focuses on “a broader look at public health”, in which the important point is that “people should be able, within reasonable limits, to continue to lead their normal life.”The main Swedish epidemiologist insists that “while there is no scientific justification for the use of hard quarantine”, in particular the closure of schools because there is no exact evidence that the children are carriers of the infection. In his view, many European leaders began to copy Chinese methods of struggle, for fear that the infection would have an unreasonable burden on their health system. In Sweden, according to the doctor, number of hospitalizations has “obviously falls”, as well as the number of deaths.”It is obvious that in Stockholm we have already passed the peak, and our health care system is able to cope with the disease. We had extra space in the hospitals, and all ��WMD needed medical care, receive this care. Even patients who did not have mers received medical care,— said Mr. Tegnell the TV channel CNBC.— We can reasonable measures to keep our society open and do not take much damage”.”We know that in such cases, there are much bigger risks. But we are not sure that if we behaved differently, the situation would have developed differently,” said Swedish chief epidemiologist.He acknowledged that when working with older people in the country could do more. According to him, in Sweden as in other Nordic countries, nursing homes are “very old and very sick” people, and the majority of older people live at home. Mr. Tegnell stated that many nursing homes are managed in Sweden, private companies, and noted that the work of these companies revealed that “problems with quality” service. This has already led to the beginning of some investigations.”We now know that we could do more, of course. But overall, I think we’d have the same tactics,” concluded Mr. Tegnell.Eugene Tail
