WHO admits that Sweden is a model of how we should deal with the pandemic.
The Executive Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme, Dr Michael Ryan said, “I think there’s a perception out there that Sweden has not put in place control measures and has just allowed the disease to spread. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sweden has put in place a very strong public health policy around physical distancing, around caring and protecting for people in long-term facilities. And many other things. What it has done differently is that it’s very much relied on its relationship with its citizenry and the ability and willingness of citizens to implement physical distancing and to self-regulate, if you will, if you want to use that word.”
The Executive Director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme, Dr Michael Ryan said, “I think if we are to reach a new normal, I think, I think in many ways Sweden represents a future model, if we wish to get back to a society in which we don’t have lockdowns, then society may need to adapt for a medium, or potentially a longer period of time, in which our physical and social relationships with each other will have to be mother modulating by the presence of the virus. We will have to be aware of the virus is present and we will have to, as individuals and families and communities do everything possible on a day to day basis to reduce the transmission of that virus.”
