The Chinese president, Mr Xi, said through his politically controlled media that Sweden had given up the fight against the Corona virus. Of course, it was not true then and it is not true today either.
The President of the United States, Mr. Trump, now says that if there is chaos in Sweden and that we are suffering. In addition, if the United States did as little as Sweden, then two million Americans would die in this pandemic.
We have to ask ourselves who we shut down schools, cinemas, restaurants, shopping areas etc. It is clear that it is not for the school children, cinema visitors or the owners of restaurants and shops.
There are two parties that must be protected:
those who belong to a risk group (the elderly
those with underlying illnesses) and those who take care of the sick (doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals)
Sweden has not introduced a complete closure of our society, as has been done in parts of Italy and Spain, for example. Why? Because it is not needed and because when you open up after on lock-down, the spread of the virus will take new momentum in these countries. In Sweden, we have instead been asked to stay at home as much as possible and if it is not possible, we are urged not to go by public transport.
In addition, we have been invited to stay at home and in self-quarantine if we are not completely healthy, whether we have covid-19 or are otherwise ill.
Sweden’s way of solving the problems arising from an overly rapid spread is thus different from the rest of the world. Mr Xi – in Sweden we have not given up. Mr Trump – we are probably suffering less and we are probably doing more right than you expect and only the future can show which country has done the right thing. Mr Trump – we have not yet buried our citizens in mass graves!
According to the reputable news agency Reuters China reports rise in new coronavirus cases due to imported infections. This is of course nothing but bullshit. The COVID-19/Corona situation in China is not under control except in the Communist party controlled media.

Läser i media att en kinesisk statsägd tidning säger att Sverige borde fördömas av EU för vår hantering av Corona-viruset.
Jag säger: Screw you, Xi Jinping!
Man kan inte komma och uttala sig negativt om Sveriges hantering av denna mycket svåra situation när man själv visar sitt diktatoriska ansikte genom att avskeda läkare som talar i klartext om viruset, när man svetsar igen portarna till hyreshus för att invånarna inte ska komma ut och när man griper en svensk medborgare i Thailand och för honom till Kina.
Det senaste utspelet är inget annat än ett drag i schackpartiet där bokförläggaren Gui Minhai står i centrum.
