approx 4K deaths in Sweden so far - that's way LOWER than many countries - so wtf are u talking about???
Sweden is extremely large with a relatively small population, outside a few urban centers people have been distancing for centuries. Comparing their numbers to densely populated countries is useless.
Please explain Japan then? No lockdown. Old population. Densely populated. 126 million people. 858 deaths. 6.78 per million

Italy & France 126 Million 61,000 deaths 484 deaths per million
I can't. And why do you think I can? All I said is comparing Sweden to for instance the UK is useless. The population density per square KM in Sweden is about 25, in the UK it's around 281. Just in London there are more people living closely together than all people in all urban centers in Sweden.

That makes any comparison useless unless you compensate for the enormous space in Sweden.

Add to that many people in Sweden chose to restrict themselves. There are several data sources showing mobility has decreased a lot during the last 10 weeks. If there's no formal measures from the government it doesn't mean people will go by their daily lives as they used to. They didn't.

Yeah, I know the Swedes took a lot upon themselves. Sensible and intelligent. The modelling used by the UK was simply lockdown or normality - 20k deaths v's Catastrophe. We got both. They never even considered just encouraging people to stay home more and avoid crowded places, like the Swedes. They obviously just didn't trust the public to be sensible and intelligent. Now it has cost more than we can afford and people don't want to go back to work. The worse of both worlds.

French prime minister just spoked.

Restaurants, bars, public gardens, free movement inside France, college, all open starting 2 June.

France is ok to open the borders inside Europe without quarantine, based on reciprocity. Spain proposes the 15 june to start movements beetween EU countries.

As for arrivals in Europe from the rest of the world, the answer should be annonced for the 22 june, which would be also the start of the third part of the French deconfinement.

Unless shit goes down in a hurry.

Patients share beds as coronavirus cases overwhelm Mumbai’s hospitals
As India’s pandemic continues, in some areas the healthcare system is close to collapse
Hannah Ellis-Petersen South Asia correspondent
Fri 29 May 2020 03.00 BST

In Mumbai’s Sion hospital emergency ward there are two people to a bed. Patients, many with coronavirus symptoms and strapped two to a single oxygen tank, were captured lying almost on top of each other, top-to-toe on shared stretchers or just lying on the floor, in footage shared on social media in India this week.

Mumbai, a city of more than 20 million people, is weeks into the pandemic, but with new cases showing no sign of slowing down the city’s already weak healthcare system appears to be on the brink of collapse. State hospitals such as Sion, overcrowded in normal times, are overrun. With frontline doctors and nurses falling sick with the virus in their droves, it is also leading to a shortage of medical staff.

“The volume and density of our population in Mumbai makes it very difficult to see how we will get out of the other side of this peak,” said Manish Shetty, a doctor who works on the Covid-19 ward in Guru Nanak hospital in Mumbai. “Definitely there is a fatigue setting in from all frontline workers, especially because there is a very high chance of healthcare workers getting infected.”

He added: “There is definitely a shortage of beds for critical care. There is a lot of infrastructure and planning which is happening, but the magnitude of the cases is overwhelming us all.”

Coronavirus: Sweeping, strict Manila lockdown ends on June 1, after three months
Metro Manila has been effectively shut off from the rest of the Philippines and the world since March 16, 2020.
May 28, 2020, 5:23 pm SGT
Updated 11 hours ago
MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Thursday (May 28) that he is lifting one of the strictest and longest lockdowns enforced in South-east Asia, as the Philippines pivots to rebuilding an economy devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Let us move to the so-called new normal. Let’s see what develops ahead,” Mr Duterte said at a meeting of his ministers.

He said this as health officials reported earlier in the day the largest number of new cases reported in a single day since the virus was first detected in the country, and experts warned easing the lockdown is premature as it has not led to a "discernible" drop in infections.

The Health Ministry said in a bulletin 539 new infections and 17 more deaths were recorded, bringing total infections to 15,588. Deaths have reached 921. More than half of the new cases were in Metro Manila.

Because the Philippines consists of many islands, in theory ,, it should make it easy to control the spread of the virus, by testing everyone that leaves and arrives from each island.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

when you try and open to soon. This is what every country wants to avoid
Coronavirus: South Korea set to bring back lockdown restrictions after sharp increase in new cases
‘There’s a need to maximise social distancing in areas where the virus is circulating, to force people to avoid public facilities and other crowded spaces,’ say health officials

Health Minister Park Neung-hoo announced on Thursday that strict social distancing rules have been reimposed in Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province until 14 June to contain any further spread of Covid-19.

It comes less than a month since the nationwide lockdown ended on 6 May. South Korea has since lifted some restrictions gradually, but a resurgence of the virus may threaten to put more areas back under lockdown.

No, GG ^^^ we have one case because of the measures taken.
Totalitarian - No, again. These sensible and well executed measures had the overwhelming support from the citizenry.

PS, and the lockdown is quickly ending - causing far less damage to The Ekomony relative to your appallingly executed fuck up.
