Thank you.

I once saw a great cartoon in a bathroom . . . of a man standing smack-dab against a huge tree trunk, which blocked his peripheral vision.

The man was leaning forward, as if to continue on his walk, but was unable to walk any further.

The caption:

"Lost in an impenetrable forest!"

Update, my father is doing very well. As I explained in the first post, he has had some sort of respiratory issue since early January. So he either had coronavirus for a couple months before being diagnosed with it, or he has something else and then caught coronavirus on top of it. Either way, he feels very good but is not quite back to where he was before the whole thing started, at least not yet.

The media has gone to great lengths to condemn Sweden's response to coronavirus. Of course things could still go in either direction, but I wonder if their coverage will continue if Sweden's number continue to look better than nations that imposed strict lock downs.

BTW, the most interesting point to me was how the world has labeled Sweden's approach an "experiment" that may have dire consequences. But the truth is quarantining sick people and isolating those at risk is 100% normal while quarantining whole populations of healthy people is actually wildly experimental.

Has Sweden Found the Right Solution to the Coronavirus?

For those who are not inclined to read the link, the most relevant numbers at this point:


The really good news is that in Sweden’s ICU census, which is updated every 30 minutes nationwide, admissions to every ICU in the country are flat or declining, and they have been for a week. As of this writing (based on currently available data), most of Sweden’s ICU cases today are elderly, and 77 percent have underlying conditions such as heart disease, respiratory disease, kidney disease, and diabetes. Moreover, there hasn’t been a single pediatric ICU case or death in Sweden — so much for the benefits of shutting down schools everywhere else. There are only 25 COVID-19 ICU admissions among all Swedes under the age of 30.

Sweden is developing herd immunity by refusing to panic. By not requiring social isolation, Sweden’s young people spread the virus, mostly asymptomatically, as is supposed to happen in a normal flu season. They will generate protective antibodies that make it harder and harder for the Wuhan virus to reach and infect the frail and elderly who have serious underlying conditions. For perspective, the current COVID-19 death rate in Sweden (40 deaths per million of population) is substantially lower than the Swedish death rate in a normal flu season (in 2018, for instance, about 80 per million of population).
