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.
