Denmark was one of the first Euro countries to engage in some kind of lockdown - being quick (e.g Taiwan) appears to have been a crucial variable in containing the virus-  of course it is.  Their measures taken were a lot less stringent than many other countries. But what are the detailed differences and similarities between the Swedish and Danish version?  I would not paint it black and white as you are doing here.  Sweden did shut down schools too!

 

On the issue of consumer spending. Exactly, how spread was it across the economy.   If restaurants were closed in Denmark then I would guess not much consumer spending there - all businesses matter.  Can you provide any sort of breakdown.  As the 'note' points a 4% difference in consumer spending is a big deal.  I wonder how small private businesses made out between the 2 countries?   You provide no information on that at all.  

 

I also do not recall any Swedish officials saying that their policy was based on keeping the economy going - can you provide any evidence that someone involved in the policy decision making  specifically said that economy is our main concern.   There were a lot of very principled reasons for a voluntary lockdown, one namely respecting people's rights and freedoms.  

 

And of course the big monkey in the room is that like Canada most of Sweden's deaths have occurred in care facilities.   That has no connection to allowing cafes to stay open or not.  Of course in Sweden they had the right to decide.

 

 

Great post samurai. It’s good to see.

 

As for the “big monkey in the room”, I have only one question: who did you run away from that you had to move all the way to Japan?
 

It’s about the loved ones of everyone. That is the intangible part of your assessment that just isn’t in your discourse. 
 

The Love.

 Lives for lives.   Now get back to watching CNN and the other mainstream media so you can keep everyone rightly informed on this site.

Honestly, I would be surprised if anyone knew the true answer as to what we should be doing at this point. On one hand, people die. On another hand, people can't afford to eat. It's not exactly a clear cut situation nor is it a good one to be in no matter what.

Somebody I know was getting tested today in one of the drive through testing sites and some guy with Alberta plates yelled from his truck put him in the morgue. It’s idiots like that and the ones in Toronto that ruin it for everyone else. We’re all entitled to an opinion but we have to respect each other.

Interesting apology from the mayor of Toronto. It kind of gets me thinking actually.

 

On one hand, if there are a lot of people in an area, social distancing is tough. That's simply going to be the case. It's also not always as easy as "go find another park". What if all the other nearby parks are the same? I can certainly sympathize with the mayor based on this.

 

On the other hand, people should be practicing social distancing and if we don't put pressure on people to social distance we lose more lives.

 

Perhaps it's important to be understanding of the situation while still putting that pressure on.

I'd wager most of them couldn't find the Ozarks on a map.

 

I'd wager most of them couldn't find the US on a map of North America

Then parks and beaches get shut down again

Got it.

posting wildly wrong inferences is how you roll.  Remember when you predicted weeks and weeks ago that 20% of the world's population was going to die from Corona. In other words the equivalence of one China.   Fair enough for people to buy into the early modeling mistakes that is not their fault, but you took it to a whole new level of absurdity.

Yeah I remember those days.

 

We were so innocent back then.

Actually we are all 'alt's' of Me_.   Though you wonder about a person starting a message board where they just talk to themselves. I am Me_!!!!

 

 

 

Remember, when you see a 'Newbie' post, it's just Me_!!!

Pretty much it.   No one ready knows what will happen in the future.   The politicians are really winging it.   I saw an article the other day saying an effective vaccine will never be developed and covid 19 will be among us forever like the flu.  If that is the case, what next?   You can't have a lockdown forever.

Good thing that some in Canada are taking social distancing more seriously.

The mayor of Toronto is a hypocrite. 

 

Mayor apologizes for own behaviour at Trinity Bellwoods, after city cracked down on 'dangerous' crowds

Trinity Bellwoods Park was much quieter Sunday, after officials in Toronto increased enforcement and condemned the "selfish and dangerous" behaviour of people who flooded the downtown park on Saturday, saying it could cause a spike in COVID-19 cases and undo weeks of collective effort.

Meanwhile, Toronto Mayor John Tory is apologizing for his own failure to properly wear a mask and physically distance while at the park, saying he went there to determine why the situation was happening.

 

Mayor Tory condemned the crowds Saturday night, but faced criticism for images of him at the park apparently standing near other people with his face mask pulled down.
