Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Sweden made the bold choice to forgo lockdowns and business or school closings. The government instead chose only to suggest it citizens practice social distancing. With this more relaxed policy, Sweden had hoped more of its people would develop antibodies quickly. According to a recent study the city with the largest number of citizens who developed antibodies to the virus was Stockhom, where 7.3 percent of the blood samples collected showed antibodies.

That antibody test was a month ago.

"Asked about the study during a press conference, state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell said he believed that to date "a little more than 20 percent" had probably contracted the virus in Stockholm"where over a third of Sweden's confirmed cases have been recorded."

I went to a Beer Garden last Friday. At 45, I was one of the youngest people out of what I would estimate 80-100 people.

If anyone there, young or old, contracted COVID, who would you claim to be at fault for it?

... The government instead chose only to suggest it citizens practice social distancing. ...

There is also another, and quite significant, aspect about Sweden to understand before the comparison to the United States is made.

In Sweden a suggestion by the government is taken a lot more seriously than here in the United States.

The effect of "suggestions" by the Swedish government is nearly as strong as the similar "orders" from US state governments.

Sweden's general population contains few persons-of-color, no native Americans and doesn't incarcerate 25% of their male breeding population. Sweden, Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. will eventually discover "herd immunity" is more wishful thinking than reality.

If you catch a covid 19 at a bar then it is your fault for going to a bar in the middle of a pandemic.
