As seen in the graph Finland has vaccinated 20% of it’s population with Estonia close by with 19% and then a we see Greenland with 9% in the bottom, who don’t get the same amount of vaccines as the rest of Denmark (could be related with the shorter life span of the Eskimos), surprisingly Sweden is the next last one with less than 15% (Sweden tend to claim to have a well working healthcare and planing, but the pandemic has shown major flaws in Sweden’s capability to plan ahead and that healthcare system is crumbling of the pressure).
For those who has Telia as their ISP, there is a huge problem with incoming traffic, as shown in the screenshot above, while the home network is idle.
Around 1.1MB/s of incoming packages that hasn’t been requested, around 80% of the traffic seems to originate from mainland China, much of port scans and connections tries to typical microsoft windows services.
The bad thing is that Telia do not do anything about it and the default routers they provide are of old type and do not manage this kind of constant traffic that well which causes a slow network for their customers.
If you compare with Bahnhof, one of the best ISP’s, the incoming traffic has been filtered from DDoS like attacks from PRC, which gives you as a customer a lot more responsive network.
If you are in the looks for a new ISP and thinking of Telia, you should maybe pick one of the others.
The communists in Hong Kong are in the move of setting up new laws that will limit peoples freedom and consular help. The interesting question is what will happen after the Covid restrictions are lifted or will Hong Kong keep on having Covid restrictions to stop mass-scale protests?
Hong Kong has now abandon dual citizenship, those who have BN(O) passports will be denied British consular help and those breaking the agreement between UK and PRC, this will also apply for all other dual citizens too, so no help is allowed from your home country.
Hong Kong has also forbidden BBC World to be broadcast in Hong Kong as they have reported what has happen in Sinkiang (North Western China) and as it’s a national secret that PRC is raping female Muslim prisoners, so spreading the news about it breaks the national security law.
The Hong Kong government can ban people from leaving Hong Kong without court order, this to prevent people to get to safety and ensure that they can hold fake trails against Democrats and their supporters.
The question is the day when the Covid restrictions are lifted, what will happen, will we see millions of Hongkongers once again go out on the streets protesting against the local government and will they be just demanding the 5 basic demands or will they now be request full freedom? This can cause big problem for Carrie Lam and the other communists and it can be that they decide to keep the Covid restrictions far longer than any other country, to keep people from showing their dislike to the current masters.
The situation in Hong Kong is getting pretty close to how it was during the Japanese occupation and CCP will be prepared to go far in quieting the Hongkongers and they are the reason why people will be breaking the national security law in this PRC colony that soon will just be a big prison camp.
Sweden hasn’t really had much of restriction during the Covid-19 pandemic which started in Peoples Republic of China in September 2019 and then was allowed to spread over the whole world with Communist Chinese tourists.
Sweden has been against face masks and recommended social distancing, with elderly care that is outsourced much to private companies while it’s neighbor Finland was fast on isolating regions when the number of cases increased and the elderly care is not as outsourced as in Sweden. Both Finland and Sweden are in many ways quite similar when it comes to health care and laws (sure there are differences too) as they have a long common history as been an Union since 1362, which ended in 1809.
Population vise Finland has half the population as Sweden, just to make Sweden look better, we have doubled the Finnish numbers.
As you see the doubled Finnish numbers do not come near the Swedish numbers, deaths are just 10% and the cases are just 16% of what Sweden has. Also we don’t know how many have recovered in Sweden as they don’t keep such information, this makes it difficult to track the number of those with a seriously long term covid-19.
If we look just at those 70+, In Sweden 89% of the dead are in this age group while in Finland it was just 39%, this simply shows that elderly care that is run for profit do not work. To make it simpler to see the difference here are the numbers (keep in mind that the Finnish numbers has been doubled to make the population to be somewhat the same):
What from the economical point of view?
This far there ain’t much difference between Finland and Sweden economically, both countries has suffered around the same amount, so higher restriction in affected areas and less restriction where the spread is low don’t make too much difference compared to having no restriction at all.
What about mental health?
Finland has noticed a raise of mental health issues, but been able to take care of most of the patients with a bit more severe mental illness.
In Sweden the mental care was in a catastrophic state already before the pandemic and no investigation has been done to see how the mental state is in Sweden, maybe an investigation will be done after the pandemic.
So what should we learn from this?
That face masks, distancing, washing hands, and protecting the elderly together with harder restrictions saves a lot of lives. I hope President Biden will look at this and reform the elderly care and health care, so that insurance companies ain’t stealing the money that should have been spend on care giving.
Shocking news was published by HKFP that Andy Chan would resign due of “health reasons” which been claimed to be high blood pressure while he was already on Chinese New Years holidays.
The condition is well treatable and Andy is in a good condition, so there ain’t anything that would prevent him from function as the Under Secretary of the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs. “Health reasons” is the most common reason for resigning in a “communists” country, when you have opposed the leadership behind closed doors. Had Andy criticized PRC/CCP publicly he would have been treated as a criminal and brought to fake legal trail.
