WHO Declares Sweden's COVID Response a Model for the World

Via Schuyler


The World Health Organization (WHO) this week praised Sweden as a potential “model” for battling the COVID-19 virus sweeping nations around the world.

Sweden, unlike most other nations, has avoided the hardline approach to the novel coronavirus pandemic that has resulted in mass economic shutdowns and vast unemployment. Bars, restaurants, libraries, public pools, and most schools remain open in the nation of 10 million, which has drawn fire from critics skeptical of the state’s “laissez-faire” approach.

On Wednesday, however, the WHO’s top emergencies expert said Sweden’s social distancing policies are often misunderstood.


  1. The reputation of the WHO is about the same as the MSM, Adam Schifft4Brains, or Barakus Milhouse Insane Obama. It's in the NEGATIVE Range.

    1. & why I was surprised this came out as it is similar to what South Korea did and workers kept working in both countries.

  2. I'm certainly not one for a reflexive defense of the WHO, but let's understand that decisions are made on a mix of instinct and the information available at the time. There is no such thing as perfect information.

    Most countries, presented with information about communicability, potential lethality, etc., made the decision to lock down which was, realistically, a prudent decision based on what was known at the time.

    Having said that, the toeing of the CCP line was double-plus ungood, and I don't trust the bastards.

    1. Yes, the two doctor video from CA mentioned that Trump's action at the time was correct, since we weren't sure of what it would do, but now all restrictions need to be lifted.
