Another day of 400+ cases and a lack of testing in Ontario. Curve heading back upwards just as we're starting to reopen and the weather is getting better. Uh oh.

Guess we'll have to get used to this. The next couple years will probably be like this....

Watered down version of a lockdown --> curve starts to flatten --> become complacent --> curve veers upwards. Rinse, repeat. It is what it is.

The curve was apparently really only flattening because the longterm care home cases plummeted. The rest of Ontario has been pretty steady throughout.

Every country will "become" Sweden until there's a vaccine, which actually doesn't seem that far away, as they won't survive as we know them if they don't become Sweden. People at higher risk will have to be very careful until then, needless to say.

What does "become sweden" mean to you @Krustchev?

One of the worst death rates in the world?
By far and away the worst death rate in the region?
An economy smashed just as bad as anyone else's?

Even if "becoming Sweden" is a thing. The knowledge, flexibility, etc in preparing for this means that nobody else will really does it as poorly as Sweden.

Sweden also is not as open as people think.

Yeah Sweden will serve as a nice example of what not to do. I mean every strategy is a disaster for the economy but some happen to prevent deaths more than others.

Sweden’s economy is also struggling. The virus is the problem, not the shutdown.

economy is in deep shit until we can deal with the virus.
You dont shut down everything like we did

I can wait 2 hours in line to get into Costco to save a buck but cant buy shoes at Globo in a small strip plaza that maybe has 10 people in it at once

This has gone too far , more propaganda and media shit than anything else

You can't "become" Sweden. To be Sweden you have to **** up more at the start.

But yeah, almost every country will be opened prematurely.
