Coming into Oslo from Sweden and from Denmark a few weeks ago, it seemed open enough to me.

Yeah. Not even ID check at Helsingborg ferry terminal last Friday, I walked straight through (although it was 3am).

Even if the last Swedish PM and Tegnell were to take a 3am phone call about the emerging threat of Covid-19 in late 2019 or early 2020, they probably were still going to take no snap decisions at such time .... or any other time unless and until it was about the optics to try to avoid being perceived as extensively in the country for being derelict of duty.

Romeo 3 out.

So it seems like Sweden is saying Tegnell is moving to WHO for a child vaccination program, but WHO says it doesn’t know about such a thing. Is this part of WHO wanting to keep a distance from being associated with a Tegnell’s move up and out from FHM?

It seems ID checks are going to be starting up again for most international ferry routes to Sweden as of the end of this month. If Sweden still has Covid checks of any sort still applicable as of April 1st, it will be interesting to see if there is a sort of repeat of making an issue over Covid-19-related documents in the way that happened at times for passengers coming into Sweden from Denmark — this time for some international ferry arrivals.

Finland and Sweden could soon join NATO, prompted by Russian war in Ukraine

It appears Stockholm is running out of tissues at the moment, they were sold out at several places I've tried yesterday. I'll leave it to certain posters to draw their conclusions from this 😂

I just swung by a paper company with Swedish connections. I’ll let them know that coated paper doesn’t work well for those with Covid-19 diarrhea and sniffles in Sweden.

What’s the news for Covid-19 numbers using the Swedish sewage system?
