Stockholm, Dec. 3(ChinaEurope) — Covid-19 came suddenly. No one knew what it was. But some of the doctors who dealt with SARZ in 2003 remembered what happened then and thought they were similar.

Therefore immediately China took the method of isolation. Many people in the west didn’t understand it, question it and even curse it as violation of human rights.

But through popularization of the knowledge, Chinese people understood that isolation of the virus can prevent the virus from spreading.

Thus from January 23 to April 8, through 76 days of intensive isolation and the efforts of the whole nation, with the great sacrifice of many people of their time and freedom, Wuhan opened up again.

China was very successful in doing this. At the beginning, many people complained about the strict isolation. But after 50 days, China became free again. This was a battle against the virus.

But when the virus took place in Europe, many countries thought they could not wipe it out and will live with it.

With such an idea, you do not have the determination to wipe out the virus, thus after the summer, the virus came back again. Now it is getting worse and worse.

Economy was affected and people are suffering from depression and stress.

Looking back, Chinese idea can be learnt to make up our mind to try to prevent the virus from spreading. And taking masks can help you. Anders Tegnell always refused to say mask is useful actually gave a very bad hint to people. Even WHO suggests people wear mask outside.

I think Sweden should ask people to wear mask and stay at home as many as possible. Meanwhile, mobilize Chinese doctors and medicine to treat people. Hopefully the death rate could decrease.
