Balancing act 2 5, 2:17pm

I know this is exaggerated for comic effect - but the depiction of brother Sweden is factually wrong.

Swedish authorities didn't underestimate the threat in the beginning, and they're not panicking now.

This is playing out as expected.

People die - they do that in a pandemic.

But the health care services are holding up and (most) people are behaving responsibly.
