    The "Swedish Model" strikes again. They didn't learn from the 1st wave disaster, or the 2nd wave and now they seem to be locking down.

    I think at this point in US we have reached a balance, where (at least here in Florida) businesses require masks and distancing and it is becoming a second nature for people to take simple precautions, and the numbers are going down. This allows for businesses to remain open, even it not in full capacity. Likewise, FL schools have a choice to be open in-person or remotely. If there are European countries like Sweden who are seeing massive spikes, then we need to stop air travel from/to those countries. Many EU countries don't allow travel from US anyway, so it would not be a big difference anyway.

    Stockholm Endures 100% Spike in Covid Cases as Third Wave Hits
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...100-spike-in-virus-infections-in-just-3-weeks
    Swedish health officials said Stockholm has succumbed to a resurgence of the pandemic, after infections soared 100% over the past three weeks.

    “We have a third wave of transmissions -- it’s here now,” Johan Bratt, the acting health and medical care director for the Stockholm region, said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

    The surge in new cases follows a warning from the government of Prime Minister Stefan Lofven that Sweden might need to enforce its first lockdown since the pandemic erupted roughly a year ago. Such a step would mark a dramatic reversal of the country’s earlier skepticism toward such far-reaching restrictions.

    I'm sure this was meant to mean something, but it just didn't come out right.

    Also note the right touted this as a model for America. Thankfully they were ignored.

    As long as they manage to keep their healthcare system within capacity it shouldn't matter much. People seem to forget that whole lockdown thing was part of the strategy to keep the healthcare system from being overwhelmed. If the goal were to truly eliminate it, we would all be banned from going out in public for several weeks until all the people with it had died or recovered.

    Here are Sweden's graphs. Deaths are down to 7 per day on the 7 day average. ZERO deaths yesterday.
    Their cases look pretty normal compared to everywhere else. Notice the last two days on the graph. This OP is fearmongering.

    Wow, calling people trash just based on where they lived. You want millions of people to suffer for what their government decided. Real cool.

    Don't kid yourself. There are plenty of liberals and racial minorities in both "hillbilly" states. Ever been to Austin?

    Where is your liberal compassion?

    BTW, why do you use racially disparaging slurs to refer to poor rural white people? I only lived in Texas for a year, but I don't recall any hills.

    yeah? Maybe what, 40% of the adult population voted. Of that what percentage voted for the current governor? None of the children are included in that vote. But you want to punish everyone based on the decisions of the few. They’re all Americans, so all should be helped as best as they can be, equally to all others.

    Its called facing the consequences of your vote. Maybe only the urban areas and blue areas should get assistance. Since its true they did not support the right wing extremist regime controlling their state.

    here in America we don’t cut off entire states based on how they vote.

    The left seems very selective on who should face consequences in this country.
