Just read this headline in a UK paper:
Lockdown finally looms for Sweden as it suffers more than DOUBLE the number of Covid cases per capita than Britain, Germany or Spain

Don't believe anything you read in that POS newspaper.

They said the same thing about a month ago.

It's unlikely to happen. People would need to be dropping dead in the streets before they would have a lockdown here.

Having any kind of lockdown would completely undermine their whole plan and show that they were wrong to not have more restrictions at the start.

Positive cases. You can achieve high positive cases just by testing more.

I suspect it's just the daily fail trying to distract its readers that boris's oven ready trade deal isn't going to end well for the UK and the typical DM reader.

Yes but that data goes up and down from one week to the next. The overall statistics are better for comparison.

The Daily Mail are great at click bait articles. I just read it and it's almost identical to the article they published over a month ago at the start of the second wave in Sweden.

Those with an agenda will "cherry pick" information/sources that support it...

Why not let this be "our" source???

You can also achieve high positive cases, with high positive cases.

Didn't know you were one of those "it can't be a heat-wave if you don't measure the temperature" types.

But actually all the signs have been evident with your posts for at least a decade. So, not so surprising I suppose.

Why is everyone trying to behave like Trump these days?

Isn't that retard finally over?

You are getting like Tegnell.

Lets just stop doing any testing in Sweden then. We won't have any positive cases then and you can say that Sweden's strategy has been a wonderful success.

Perhaps what they should release is percentage of tests that are positive, its gives a better trend. Because unless you know exactly how many are tested, the figures are meaningless.

The oven ready deal was the withdrawal agreement not the free trade agreement. It is frustrating when people keep misquoting this.

I'm in favour of no deal AKA WTO or Australia style.

It was the nonsense BJ was spouting when he took over as PM. The oven ready deal was referring to the trade deal. The UK didn't need a deal to leave the EU only to carrying on trading without huge disruption.

There never was going to be a trade deal though, at least not a good one.
