The company has applied for a so-called state of emergency in the EU.

And according to Moderna, they have a vaccine that is 100 percent effective against severe corona falls. 

A so-called emergency condition means that the vaccine may be used before a formal approval from the authorities. And according to a press release from Moderna - whose vaccine has reached high efficiency figures - the company will do this on Monday next week.

According to the Boston Globe , applications will be submitted to both the US regulators and the EU equivalent. 

"The positive primary analysis confirms the ability of our vaccine to prevent covid-19 by 94.1 percent, and more importantly, the ability to prevent severe covid-19," said Stephane Bancel, CEO of Moderna.   

This means that Moderna's vaccine is the second that can be used before Christmas. If Moderna gets its application through, the elderly can be vaccinated from 21 December

Pfizer has also previously applied for a so-called emergency permit. 

"Change the course of the pandemic"

If Moderna is approved to distribute its vaccine, people in risk groups, healthcare professionals and the elderly will be given priority. 

According to the FDA, Food and Drug Administration, up to twenty million Americans can be vaccinated before the end of the year. The corresponding figure for the UK is five million. 

"We believe that our vaccine will provide new and powerful tools that can change the course of that pandemic and help prevent serious illness, hospitalizations and deaths," said Stephane Bancel. 

Known side effects from the vaccine are nausea, headache and fever - common symptoms when taking the vaccine.

The spread of infection continues and healthcare is increasingly burdened, despite introduced restrictions.

The experts answer - these restrictions can be introduced in Sweden. 

- Do not think that the health service will accept that this curve continues, says Fredrik Elgh, professor of virology at Umeå University.

Several experts believe that mouth protection may be recommended in the near future.

- It is a measure that is very easy to recommend and that would have some effect at least, says Finn Nilson, associate professor of risk management at Karlstad University.

Winter may be crucial in the issue of mouth protection. Air that is heated in our homes when it is cold outside is drier than usual. Dry air means that airborne aerosols with coronavirus are smaller and float around longer in the air, according to a study published in the journal Transboundry and Emerging diseases. 

According to Fredrik Elgh, professor of virology at Umeå University, it makes the benefit of oral protection greater and can make the authorities turn the issue around. 

- It could be a way out for them if they now have to lose face and recommend mouth protection, he says.

Healthcare decides

Fredrik Elgh generally believes that sharper restrictions in the future are likely and that much depends on the pressure on healthcare.

- I would think that it stands and weighs right now. I do not think that the health service will accept that this curve continues, says Elgh.

Ideally, he would like to see more restrictions such as distance learning and closed stores.

- You could say that all restaurants must close for four weeks, but it would have to be paired with the restaurant owners getting paid for it, says Elgh.

The Christmas holidays may open up for travel restrictions

Joacim Rocklöv, professor of sustainable health at Umeå University, believes that we can see more restrictions ahead of the Christmas holidays.

- These holidays, if you look at Easter and autumn holidays, seem to have contributed quite a lot to increasing the spread of infection.

- So there it is certain that you will be more restrictive.

He believes that domestic travel restrictions and the closure of nursing homes may become relevant to counteract the spread of infection. 

Law puts a stop to it

However, some experts believe that there is no legal scope for stricter restrictions. And that the government and the Swedish Public Health Agency will therefore have to continue with soft recommendations rather than mandatory restrictions.

- The problem for the government is that they have very few tools to use, because they do not have a crisis team, says Finn Nilson, associate professor of risk management at Karlstad University.

Nilson believes that what the government can do, however, is to try to raise concerns, like the one many felt this spring before the virus, to get people to follow the recommendations.

- A harder and tougher rhetoric is probably the most effective solution right now, says Finn Nilson.

Fredrik Elgh believes that there is no lack of tools for a shutdown.

- It is a myth that has flourished that we can not do anything. Of course we can decide to close the schools, for example, Anna Ekström could do that this morning, says Elgh.

He also says that the regions also have a mandate to shut down society.

- The 21 local infection control doctors have far-reaching opportunities in a pandemic situation to take, for example, substantial quarantine regulations.

Risk with more restrictions

Emma Frans, PhD in medical epidemiology at Karolinska Institutet, sees it as most likely that they will continue to push for the measures that have already been taken and believes that there is a risk of more restrictions.

- If you start to control people in detail and put on more advice and recommendations, then there is a risk that you start to be careless with the most important things, she says.

Seems even the Swedes are envious of the UK and Boris' optimism !!!

The government's crisis chief: We have to live with the virus throughout 2021

The government's crisis coordinator, Elisabeth Backteman, is now flagging that the Swedish people will have "physical and mental readiness" to live with the corona virus throughout next year. 

The Government Offices is planning for new outbreaks and continued restrictions.

- The pandemic will not disappear just because we get a vaccine, she says to Dagens nyheter

The Government's and the Public Health Agency's restrictions, recommendations and general advice have spread like a wet blanket over the Swedes' everyday lives. 

And the Swedish government seems to have a more pessimistic attitude than other countries. The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson went out on Saturday with a covid plan which means that restrictions can be lifted and life returns to normal already by Easter next year. 

Crisis coordinator: "We take height to continue working"

But the impending mass vaccinations that are expected to start at the beginning of next year do not seem to inspire too much optimism in the Government Offices.  

- The pandemic will not disappear just because we get a vaccine. We take height to continue working with different types of different measures, says the Government Offices' crisis coordinator Elisabeth Backteman, who is also State Secretary to the Minister of the Interior Mikael Damberg (S), to DN. 

She now urges Swedes to have "physical and mental readiness" to live with the virus throughout next year. 

Despite restrictions on crowds, general advice on social distancing and recommendations to the Swedish people, more than 6,500 people have lost their lives as a result of covid-19 Sweden

Elisabeth Backteman: "physical and mental preparedness"

However, the Government Offices seems set for another year with restrictions that prevent people from meeting loved ones, hanging out with friends, working from the workplace and attending various sporting and entertainment events. 

The office expects new outbreaks next year and continued restrictions, reports DN. 

The magazine asks Elisabeth Backteman how far ahead they look, a year or more? 

- I think it is reasonable as Johan Carlson and the Prime Minister said that you need to have both a physical and mental readiness to handle the pandemic throughout 2021 at all levels of society, she answers. 

The pandemic planning extends to spring 2022

However, the Government Offices has a pandemic planning that extends until the spring of 2022, where all ten ministries are involved with the infection scenario. 

- There are very many policy areas that are affected in addition to the most obvious, health care. These are education, the business community's perspective and the Ministry of Finance. We also have different administrative levels with responsibility for county administrative boards and municipalities, says Elisabeth Backteman to DN.

Blimey, this is getting desperate now. South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana, not once but twice :D

How about a graph of cases in Melbourne and put the Mask Mandate arrow on 19th of July......
