When the Imperial College came out with its now entirely discredited report, the world reacted fast....well, most of the world. Sweden kept its head and didn't panic....it formulated a resonse that could be endured for a long time, not fooling itself into thinking it could stop the spread and also keep the vital and essential supply chain open.

So much damage has already been done....Sweden won't be immune from the economic consequences of harsh lockdown measures of course, in our highly integrated global economy their export sector is going to be hit hard. I love how they trained laid off hotel and airline staff to work in health care.....basic skills training to free up the highly trained professionals to perform more vital tasks.

Who funds WHO?

The Gates Foundation was the second-largest financier in 2018, contributing nearly $229 million.

On January 14, the WHO in a tweet said there was no human-to-human transmission,
even though a day earlier, the first case outside China was detected in Thailand. source

MSM outlets have terrified so many people that some are too afraid to come out....and that's fine, it should be each individual's choice...same as with so many other things in life. Want to smoke? Think the experts and health professionals are all wrong? Okay...its your call.

WHO’s Programme Budget is financed through a mix of assessed and voluntary contributions. Assessed contributions are the dues countries pay in order to be a member of the Organization. The amount each Member State must pay is calculated relative to the country's wealth and population.

Assessed contributions have declined as an overall percentage of the Programme Budget and have, for several years, accounted for less than one quarter of the Organization’s financing. The balance is mobilized through voluntary contributions.

However, assessed contributions remain a key source of financing for the Organization, providing a level of predictability, helping to minimize dependence on a narrow donor base, and allowing resources to be aligned to the Programme Budget.

and WHO cares?

would be interesting when the top CEOs of airlines go start working at supermarket checkouts to atone for their lax health and safety standards.

Many hospital staff dont seem to know what they are doing though in regards to testing they are saying go see a testing point but they arent even given proper PPE, or doing it in a contactless way online. so when they ned to deal with someone whos infectious, in many ways they make it worse and spread it even further. People arent being screened in workplaces either, so when it gets into a place like a rest home, via staff, who come and go, its devastating.
doctors and nurses often dont have their own separate accomodations. and they dont always work in just one unit. But then doctors and nurses often dont take their own advice either like the worst smokers Ive seen are always student nurses.

Not so sure this is holding true anymore.

WHO has shown a huge lack in leadership.

Sweden is far from herd immunity even still.

sweden is actually a good role model country that others need to take note of as they have very low incidence of child abuse there, they really do look after their children.

why because not only nurses ought to look after children parents actually need to be train to nurse their own too.
Everyone needs to follow basic hygiene measures and not just in hospitals. so when it comes to a virus, and we know from working with children in schools and other places how sick everyone can get if just one person gets infected... that we need to take measures to protect our young and vulnerable.

in nz, the focus has mostly been on the elderly. (I think its becase baby boomers make up the majority of elderly now, and they have always been looked after by the state from cradle to grave...even with govt trying to dismantle their welfare system) . schools in nz were up in arms when children were told they could go back to school and preschool in level 3 when there was no way 2m social distancing could happen.

when you have up to 30 children in one class with just one adult try keeping them apart is impossible. I wonder how it was done in Sweden as you think govt leaders here might have a bit of common sense or realise that hey thats not actually going to work. did they ever work as teachers??? so most parents kept children at home.

Sweden did not do social distancing in schools.
