Yah I feel that way too cuz I got sick last Christmas from a flu brought by my nephew from New York and I have had the flu once in my life. Lots of colds no flus. So I wonder too. A lot of us are.

As for the person whonreliedcdumb to your post how about he show himself and explain why what you said is something to belittle.

My friend living in NYC got COVID a few months ago.  They said it felt like a bad flu.  They're pretty young.  Their spouse got it too but had zero symptoms, only found out they had got it via testing.

Sweden asked its people to do the same things we were asked to do. Maybe they are better listeners. In spite of that, Swedens economy was hit worse than all the other Scandinavian countries.

Complete nonsense.   Sweden had it right from the start and it's time to admit it.  Mitigation without a shutdown.

Sweden has 10 million people. Finland and Norway combined have 10 million people.
6000 people are dead of Covid in Sweden and many thousands more are sick and suffering.
About 600 people died of covid in Finland/Norway. Not only did their actions save thousands of lives, but they saved money in health care and they are better positioned to continue their recovery with the virus being better contained.

Only a Canadian Trumper would look at a death rate being 10x higher and say that's a better outcome.

I am happy to say I have confidence that Canadians have the good sense to adapt as necessary to avoid an outbreak ov Covid here such as they have in the US, and certainly to keep the "Canadian Trumper" bs completely in the doldrums.

Even if you don't care about the extremely high number of infections and the chaos that generates and you are only concerned with the economy, in Q2, Swedenís GDP contracted by 8.6%.

Norwayís fell by 7.4%.

Finlandís fell by 3.2%.

So a worse economic result and 10x the infection and death. Time to spike the football. That won't make you look like an idiot.  :D

Sweden's COVID Policy Didn't Create Herd Immunity

Quote
THURSDAY, Aug. 13, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Diverging from much of the world, Sweden let COVID-19 spread in hopes the population would develop "herd immunity." But the risky strategy failed, a new report finds.

Rather than imposing a hard lockdown in March as other countries did, the Scandinavian nation relied on individual responsibility to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus. This is the idea of "folkvett" -- common sense of the people -- and the approach made headlines at the time.

Gyms, stores and restaurants remained open; schools were open for kids up to age 16; while gatherings of more than 50 people were banned.

Authorities predicted that 40% of the people in Stockholm would get the disease and develop protective antibodies by May. The actual prevalence, however, was around 15%, according to the study published Aug. 11 in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

"It is clear that not only are the rates of viral infection, hospitalization and mortality [per million population] much higher than those seen in neighboring Scandinavian countries, but also that the time-course of the epidemic in Sweden is different, with continued persistence of higher infection and mortality well beyond the few critical weeks period seen in Denmark, Finland and Norway," said researcher Dr. David Goldsmith, a retired physician in London.
