25 physicians and researchers from Sweden, appeal to US: not the Swedish way

Which is the way into the Corona of a pandemic is the right, respectively, would have been the right thing to do? This is a question many people. Between a hard Lockdown and looser measures, much has been discussed. There is always a stir in the Scandinavian country, Sweden, is provided. The state had taken a more lax stance in the fight against Corona. So shops and restaurants were not opened, subject to conditions, a mask of duty there is. However, affected by the restrictions some areas, since there is Assembly, bans 50 persons.

Sweden has, compared to its neighbouring countries with very high infection and death. Currently 78.763 infections and 5,676 permits Dead by Covid have been reported 19. However, the Numbers have been in decline for a short period of time, the infection relaxed happen.

Sweden’s path will be perceived in the USA as a liberal

Now 25 physicians and researchers have directed researchers to appeal to the Corona pandemic flu hardest-hit country in the world – the USA. In the “USA Today”, it was hoped, the Text of the scientists and medical experts, including epidemiologists and virologists, with the title “Sweden, the herd immunity Covid-would contain 19. Don’t do what we have done. It doesn’t work” published.

The signatories include, among other things, Dr. Leif Bjermer, Professor of respiratory medicine and Allergology at Lund University, Dr. Lena Einhorn, Virologist, and Dr Bo Lundbäck, Professor of epidemiology of respiratory diseases at the University of Gothenburg.

The laxer Anti-Corona measures, the authors write: “This approach was perceived as a liberal, and has been shown to be used on signs and in slogans with ‘Be Like Sweden’ in US protests. Wherever the measures were lenient, have reached mortality rates of its peak. In the United States, reversing an early Lockdown is suffering , and we see this also in other countries.”

Author see herd immunity behind strategy

The Motive for the relaxed approach of the Swedish health authority, a mystery to be. Other countries that used this strategy initially, they would have quickly abandoned, as the death toll began to rise. Instead, they have opted for lock downs, even if delayed. “But Sweden has remained his approach.”

For the authors, the reason is clear: “The attainment of herd immunity, when a large part of the population (preferably Younger) will get infected and thus, immunity developed, was not an official objective of the Swedish health authority. But she has said that immunity could help in the population, the spread of the disease to suppress, and some of the statements made by the authority suggest that this is the secret goal.”

A proof of this is that the government’s authority to insist on a compulsory school for younger children, so elementary schools were not closed. In addition, the importance of Covid be played-Tests and the significance of asymptomatic spread of the Virus has not been recognized. The Test-level in Sweden has been increased. Also, the rejection of a mask of duty is a proof that Sweden is working on the herd immunity, according to the authors. The world health organization have condemned the herd immunity as a strategy.

Health authority: the residents of Stockholm could be 40 per cent immune to Corona

“Swedish mortality rate is disturbing,”

The strategy of herd immunity have developed? Not so good, say the scientists. The share of Sweden, which would carry the anti-body, not-estimated at under ten percent, which corresponds by Far to a herd immunity. In the past few weeks, experts from the Swedish health authority, had spoken of 20 and even 40 per cent herd immunity – but only for the capital, Stockholm.

“And yet the Swedish mortality rate is disturbing. In Sweden, the number of fatalities is higher than in the United States: 556 deaths per Million inhabitants, compared to 425, 20. July.” According to the Johns Hopkins University, more than 3.9 million Corona have been registered in the USA infections and over 143,000 deaths.

Further, it States: “It is possible that the authority for public health is actually of the view that the Swedish approach is the most appropriate and sustainable and that other countries, many of which were in the Lockdown, would be worse off. Perhaps this and not the herd immunity is the main reason why the authorities are clinging desperately to their strategy. Or, perhaps, the unwillingness to play, early to admit mistakes and to take responsibility for thousands of unnecessary deaths, in these resistance to change. Nevertheless, the result is, at this time.”

“Hang in there. And not the Swedish way”

The authors come to the conclusion that the Swedish model could be used, but not in the way it was originally intended. Sweden could serve as a control group and to answer the question of how efficiently the volunteers Standoff and easing measures in Sweden compared to Lockdowns, massive testing, tracing and the use of masks were.

“In Sweden, the strategy has led to death, grief, and Suffering, and, in addition, there is no indication that it is ergegangen of the Swedish economy is better than in many other countries. At the Moment, we have not given the Rest of the world is an example of how to deal with a deadly infectious disease,” say the researchers. You finish your appeal with the words: “Hopefully there is a vaccine. Hang in there until then. And not the Swedish way.”
