* The Swedish government appears to lack enough support to extend its emergency pandemic law for another four months.
* The legislation expires on January 31st and a majority of Parliament's Heath and Welfare Committee is pushing for a two month extension instead.
* The temporary law was passed a year ago and gives the government more legal powers to introduce measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 without having to going through parliament first.

* Center Party leader Annie Lööf and Per Bolund, one of the two spokespersons for the Green Party, both said on social media that they've tested positive for the coronavirus.
* The news comes after all parliamentary party leaders gathered for their first debate of the year on Wednesday.
* Lööf said she was asymptomatic and both she and Bolund said they were isolating after getting their results.

* The Swedish Public Health Agency says adults who have recovered from a Covid infection should get a booster shot as soon as they're healthy again.
* Experts say vaccine-induced immunity is more reliable than natural immunity caused by an infection.
* Other medical experts disagree, saying waiting a few months could be a good idea, and some other countries recommend a gap between recovery and then getting the booster.

Yes, this is bloody awful. How can they talk about herd immunity when they know how much this virus mutates? And why don't they tell parents how much safer vaccines are than infections - even for children? The number of daily Covid-19 deaths seems to have been forgotten. And long Covid never really seemed to in focus.

Denmark has now surrendered completely to Omicron and covidiocy!

Quote:
En gravsten over corona (DR2.dk on Facebook)
Men så er der jo kommet denne her omikron-varianten, som du snakkede om, før du sagde 'en vaccine sent fra himlen', men det er faktisk også naturen svar på en vaccine sendt fra himlen, fordi når den er så mild og ikke fremkalder sygdom, så vaccinerer den os faktisk de rigtige steder, i lungerne, så vi har et stærkt panser mod de næste varianter, som vil komme.

A tombstone for corona
But then we have this Omicron variant that you talked about before, calling it 'a vaccine sent from heaven', but it is actually also nature's answer to a vaccine sent from heaven, because when it is so mild and does not cause any disease, it actually vaccinates us in the right places, in the lungs, so that we have a strong armor against the next variants that are bound to appear.

Yes, there is not much reason to doubt that the new variants will appear. It would be interesting to know why the covidiot thinks that they won't be able to break through the immunity from vaccinations and infections. Omicron has been pretty good at it, so far.
And the relatives to the 18 Covid-19 deaths registered in Denmark today would probably like to hear more about Omicron being so mild that it doesn't make people sick.

In the meantime
Overlæger i opråb: - Vi kan ikke nå at behandle patienter (TV2.dk, Jan 27, 2022)
Chief physicians warn: - We don't have enough time to treat patients

As it turns out, hospitals are short-staffed because an unprecedented number of doctors and nurses have been infected by the virus that allegedly does not make anybody sick.
