In his TV, on June 25, " said Anders Tegnell, statsepidemiolog the Folkhälsomyndigheten, that the reason why he did not take the criticism that has been expressed by some researchers (including the us, the signatories of this article) is that we haven't come up with a ”sensible” and ”feasible” alternatives.
Our proposal is based on the scientific evidence and the experience of a large number of countries have gained under the pandemic and, therefore, we would like to repeat them one more time. But before we do that, we want to remind you that the action has been brought to Norway in the week of the 16th to the 22nd of June, reported the six deaths in Denmark, four of the deaths, in Finland, a person's death, and in Sweden 231 in the event of death. As of this writing, about 200 people admitted to the ICU of the covid-19, in Sweden, in Finland only the two of you.
Consistent smittspårning and insulation
now, What has our northern neighbors have done? They were initially, among other things, closed restaurants, and other large centers, they have done a lot of testing, they are carried out consistently smittspårning, and they are isolated and in close contact to the infected system, the measures that have been discussed and advocated in the articles. Anders Tegnell, claiming that our proposal is not ”reasonable” and ”feasible” must be rejected, he at the same time, the operations in Norway, Denmark and Finland in a successful implementation.
There is a lack of flexibility, such as FHM have demonstrated that have led to the death toll in Sweden today, there are more than 5,000
in The past, there was a doubt as to whether the mask can reduce the spread of infection. Over the past few weeks, however, it has been published in a wide range of scientific studies that in no uncertain terms demonstrates the value of the face, especially under the care of the elderly and the confined or densely populated environments, which is why we have made this as one of the important measures.
Listening to the WHO
the WHO is now recommending, also, the use of masks by the public. In our neighbouring countries is the spread of infection is now so low that the current does not need to resort to such a measure. In Sweden, with more than a thousand new cases each and every day, and on the basis of well-conducted scientific studies, that the use of a mouth piece of us-made, which is an important feature of the smittbekämpningen. Such a measure is not ”reasonable”, but also ”doable”.
in Spite of overwhelming scientific evidence to support the above-mentioned steps are Folkhälsomyndigheten largely remained on the recommendations made in the initial stage of the epidemic in the world: keep your distance, wash your hands, stay home if you feel sick at the time.
the Lack of flexibility doesn't make sense
In the meantime, most countries have adopted their own strategies, in accordance with the continuously updated knowledge. There is a lack of flexibility, which is Folkhälsomyndigheten presented, which has led to the death toll in Sweden today, there are over 5, 000 people, and is one of the highest in the world, has seen to the population. It is the high levels of contamination, as many countries closed their borders to us. The lack of flexibility is a great mystery, and that is why we have written in our articles.
In an interview on the 18th of June, in Express TV, " said Anders Tegnell, ”I think we've had a coronastrategi that is, in many ways, has worked very, very well.” In its summer schedule, he added that ”the big failure is that so many people died”. However, you have to ask yourself: Is this something that will be important during a pandemic, other than that, people are going to survive? And how can they be considered to be a strategy otherwise it has worked out very well?the face Mask is a must
But we are asking him to be on the basis of the scientific data and the experiences of other countries, the introduction of masks, and, in addition to the welcome to the extended testing and smittspårning, to impose a quarantine on those who have been in close contact with an infected individual. And if he chooses to use only one of these operations, namely the insertion of the mouth piece, so we are going to see that the number of infections, ICU-cared for and the dead drops dramatically.
after all, this is a statsepidemiologs the most important task.
