If you combine the total deaths resulting from the China CCP Wuhan Virus in Norway, Denmark, and Finland (close to 1100), they don’t even come close to what Sweden experienced (over 4770).
It’s a massacre. Thousands of people have died prematurely as a result of, I claim, serious misjudgments were initially made about the power of this virus. They let it spread.
SD’s party leader on “corona massacre”, self-criticism and text message to Kristersson
That the Swedish Democrats’ party leader Jimmie Åkesson has been critical of Sweden’s corona strategy in recent weeks has hardly escaped anyone.
When he recently demanded the departure of state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell in a debate article, he was met with scornful laughter for misguided criticism. But there were also those who liked his call.
Why did you demand an official’s departure?
– Tegnell is a symbol of Sweden’s corona management, it was for people to understand that the criticism is real and serious, he says as an explanation.
However, the main message was that those responsible must resign, Åkesson believes.
– Ultimately, it is a call for the government to dismiss Director-General Johan Carlson, then a new Director-General may appoint a new state epidemiologist.
That around 4,700 people in Sweden have now died from the corona virus, many of them in the elderly care, sees Åkesson as a major failure.
– It’s a massacre. Thousands of people have died prematurely as a result of, I claim, serious misjudgments were initially made about the power of this virus. They let it spread. It was believed that once we got a general spread of infection we should be able to protect risk groups. But it is clear that it has not worked anywhere, not in Sweden either, he says.
