Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The response in Sweden has been slow, in particular when it comes to people returing after skiing in Italy late February. This week everything has been happening rapidly.

Following the debate - and to the credit of public service television they have invited researchers in the same field with different points of views for informed discussions - it appears that the relevant authority followed largely the modeling done in Britain which mandated control of the vulnerable, and otherwise letting the disaese run its course. There appears to have been economic modeling involved. And on one hand it is reasonable to include the wider society in models, but on the other economic models are to a large extent crap. So it would be interesting to actually read those models.
