Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

Recommended Posts

From Aftonbladet, who I guess are also anti-government. Again though, when compared to their near neighbour Denmark for instance they are lagging way behind

The testing of covid-19 does not work - after eight months

The danger of a second wave has by no means been unknown.

Despite this, the testing of suspected covid-19 patients does not work.

Some call it a crash. It's easy to agree.

The infection control doctor Lars Wesslén in Gävleborg does not hover on the goal. We are in the second wave of the pandemic. The number of infections is skyrocketing, hospital places are filling up at a rapid pace, as are death rates.

Many hoped that Sweden would be spared from a second wave. State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said as recently as September that he did not believe in one in Sweden

Apparently, those responsible hoped so much that this would be the case so that Sweden did not prepare for a second wave. In any case with regard to testing of suspected patients.

Everyone blames everyone. Minister of Social Affairs Lena Hallengren, who will meet the chairmen of the regional boards on Wednesday, places the responsibility on the regions and has done so since last spring when she constantly urged them to expand their test capacity. The regions say they are doing what they can (but that is not enough). The government asks the Swedish Public Health Agency to prepare strategies. But it does not matter as long as they are not implemented.

As early as March, the head of the World Health Organization, WHO, called on the countries of the world; Test, test, test.

In Sweden, no one opposes the tactics. Testing, checking whether you are infected or not, is also considered here to be fundamental in stopping the spread of infection.

Despite this, it does not work optimally. In Stockholm, the home delivery was stopped by tests for suspected patients when there were 16,000 in line a couple of weeks ago.

Now you can order again. But the website states that it is "difficult", which should probably be read as almost impossible. People in nursing homes and care staff go first.

You can also, it is kindly stated, turn to private care providers. But then the test is no longer free.

The large-scale testing under the auspices of society thus does not work as intended. The talk of a crash can possibly be considered too powerful. But failure, on the other hand, is perhaps too weak and soft.

It is the country's 21 regions that take care of health care and thus also testing. They have had eight months to get up to speed.

The government has made valiant efforts to get them to coordinate, buy up private laboratory services and take their share of responsibility for the procurement of tests. But without reaching all the way.

 

In mid-October, the Swedish Public Health Agency was commissioned by the government to present a new strategy for more tests. The goal was "to be able to quickly increase the testing capacity so that everyone with symptoms can be offered PCR testing".

It is possible that there is a strategy. But it has not reached reality. And that is, after all, where we are, infected or not.

The crash, the failure or whatever you want to call it is in some kind of limbo. On paper, the regions have the responsibility. But since they have not managed it, the government, with the help of the Public Health Authority, has intervened. Or tried to help if you want to express yourself a little friendlier.

Suddenly has no responsibility. That's where we are now. Testing, one of the most important weapons against the spread of infection, does not work properly.

But demanding responsibility is difficult, the fog is dense over the decision paths.

It's more than a failure. It's like a crash.

Why is Johnson self isolating ? There are three cases worldwide of someone catching 'covid' twice, and none of them developed any symptoms or illness. His body will be awash with anti-bodies, this makes no sense at all.

He was advised to isolate. It wouldn't have been his choice as he has plenty on his plate which he would prefer to be getting on with.,

No way. He is either attending the court case Dean has been telling us about for weeks, or he has to spend 14 days in jail......the MSM wouldn't tell us though :D

So,,, it appears that Boris is isolating, as per the rules. Good on him, setting an example. :t:

On tonight's briefing there was a lot of talk about covering your bets etc. References to football and hosre racing. There's seems to be a lot of gambling going on. Best be careful as it's a dangerous game.

Strange that he should suddenly have to isolate as rumours of a leadership challenge start to surface, and especially as he's already had COVID... :rolleyes:

They might have. But the infected guy tested positive the following day, so T & T advised him to isolate. Usuals on here reading more things into it, but it's all part of the current crap on here. :rolleyes:
