Yup - Sweden also relies quite a lot on exports...
Plus compare the immediate impact over the past couple of weeks VS long term gain / damage. Impossible to do at the moment.1) Comparing Sweden to "the rest of Europe" with a life expectancy of 80+ years without normalising data makes both opinion pieces a bald-faced lie.
2) How in the name of everything cute and furry would the lack of lock-down equate to a sudden economic spurt when all their neighbours went full Forrest Gump?
Talk about spreading FUD and ignorance like it was magic sauce.
It's going to be OK. Our MEC is on the case:
Cyril is meeting with all the Premiers today. I'm guessing an announcement will be made after the meeting is concluded (could take a while, politicians love the sound of their own voice).Just me or is anyone else concerned that it's almost 2pm and there isn't even a murmur of anyone making an announcement of any sort?
You mean the discussions about who did not get their fair share of the loot and how much is still left to loot ?Cyril is meeting with all the Premiers today. I'm guessing an announcement will be made after the meeting is concluded (could take a while, politicians love the sound of their own voice).
from april this year - 4 months ago:
Furious with the Eastern Cape government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic in Nelson Mandela Bay, health minister Zweli Mkhize has taken charge by sending a senior director to lead the tracing, screening and testing teams in the city.
He also read the riot act to health MEC Sindiswa Gomba and her administrative staff in a meeting behind closed doors in Port Elizabeth, according to three insiders.
This followed a presentation by Dr John Black, head of the infectious diseases and HIV unit at Livingstone hospital, who painted a bleak picture of a department that is hopelessly ill-prepared to deal with the virus.
Among the challenges were that hospitals were full, there was a dire shortage of staff and an urgent need for personal protective equipment (PPE) for health staff.
A metro insider said the doctors at the state hospitals often turned to the municipality for help with supplying personal protective equipment because there appeared to be a lack of urgency from the bosses in Bhisho.
