It's hugely unfair to call out Sweden, in all fairness it should be called Little Africa !
Only then make those figures sense !
It'll be found that in all countries where COVID-19 is getting a foothold, Africans abound.

Graham,

Given that re-infection may be a distinct possibility, that antibodies protect the immune system for only a relatively short time, is it possible that the notion of herd immunity is a crock ?

Dear Steele,

I for one am very grateful to our government for taking
the precautions that it has. The lock-downs and social
distancing seems to have worked as has the banning of
overseas travel and the isolation of people coming from
overseas. The low rates of infection and deaths speak
for themselves. It could have been very bad for this
country. It hasn't been Thanks to the actions taken
by our government.

Not doing anything would have been an irrational option.
And ignoring the advice of our scientists and medical
experts would have resulted in dire consequences as we
can see from what's happening not only in Sweden, but
Europe in general, and in the US.

We shall come out of this much better than anyone else
and we can Thank our government for that.

As I stated previously - I'm so glad that I live in
Australia.

We will survive this - if our government continues to
take the sensible approach that it has thus far.

Joe, the possibility of reinfection is very very remote.
If you look at the more familiar type of coronavirus (the common cold) you'll see that nobody get the same strain twice.

I disagree. The two previous serious coronavirus outbreaks (SARS and MERS) were stopped.

The big difference with COVID19 is that people become infectious before showing symptoms. And that means we have to rely on testing if we're going to stop it.

Aidan,

Testing people especially those coming from overseas
is crucial. As we saw what happened with the cruise
ship - the Ruby Princess. We can't just stop these
precautionary procedures in the interest of monetary
gain. Saving lives should be our priority.

What's the point of having wealth if people are
dying around you?

Aidan,

So ....... if I get a cold, i won't get another one, not of the same strain ? Strains mutate ? So we get different colds ?

And this Covid-19 can't mutate as fast as the common cold can ?

Gee, let's predicate all of our health policies, our economy, our society, on that principle.

i.e. let's hope like hell.
