You as an average Swede, no. But someone who is a statsepidemiolog should know better.
This is a virus with many asymptomatic carriers. Vårdhems cannot build negative pressure isolation chambers in two days. Or even random isolation units.
So basic logic gives you little chance to protect the elderly if your staff has to commute along with asymptomatic carriers joyfully going to a restaurant.
It has nothing to do with uncareful execution. It has to do with someone telling you "it will work" when he knew it could not work. (Or he did not know because he refused to see the truth?).
Are Swedes all wearing masks like in Taiwan or Korea? No? Then stay home unless you really have to leave.
