    Hello Everybody,

    Sweden gave up. It quit fight COVID-19. Just let the pandemic
    run wild. Let it do it's own thing, for as long as it wants.
    No need for a vaccine, as everybody will already be infected
    by the time any vaccine would arrive. And you know what that
    means. No more masks. No more social distancing. No more need
    to wash your hands with soap and water, or use disinfectant.
    With this in mind, Sweden will be the envy of the world ...

    Sweden faces a shortage of health-care workers as the number of
    resignations ticks up after a relentless year of caring for Covid
    patients.

    Sineva Ribeiro, the chairwoman of the Swedish Association of Health Professionals, says the situation is “terrible.”

    Even before the first wave of the pandemic back in March, there was
    “a shortage of specialist nurses, including at ICUs,” she said in a
    phone interview.

    The development shows that even countries with universal health-care
    systems are now struggling to keep up with the Covid crisis. This week, Stockholm’s intensive care capacity hit 99%, sending the city into a
    panic and prompting calls for outside help.

    But even if more ICU beds are provided, the bigger concern now is
    whether Sweden has enough health-care workers with the skills needed
    to look after the country’s sickest patients.
