10:02 am
could change support. your claim that since we are not an island and have people coming in from other countries we should prepare ourselves for the possibility of exponential growth at any time. sweden's infection rate on the other hand has been surging for 2 months the nordic country never imposed a full lockdown relying instead on voluntary social distancing but with case numbers going up non-essential public facilities like pools and libraries were closed and for the 1st time the government is recommending residents wear masks on public transport yet the measures remain lax compared to germany and austria very serious look look down for example. for the long run because people would not put up with that switzerland too is headed for lockdown as restaurants are set

to close next week the swiss government has urged people to stay inside but his left at least one decision to local authorities whether to open ski lifts this year ski is will have to add covert 19 to the long list of alpine hazards. and for more on this i'm joined by dr claudia hanson an epidemiologist at the carolyn skin's tatoos in stockholm thank you for joining us dr sweden is tightening its restrictions what are the new measures and why the big change. good morning from stuck on the big changes that the country is realizing that the president is trying to cheat that's not really protect the most good ribbon and people so they realize the big that the particularly the promise of interest given in the spring that there wouldn't be a 2nd wave because a reach trying to munity doesn't hoot so and that is changing the public opinion
10:04 am
which is every part i'm not sure whether the present measurements will really bring the case none of this is tremendously down after hearing. the government is our recommending that passengers wear masks on public transport won't make them mandatory will that work. i don't know to have been telling the public 2 months no to do just 6 months that must do not what i'm not sure how one interior measure now can can walk in public for it it may become very difficult. and your country as we heard in the report went it alone at the beginning of the outbreak when other european countries locked down is can we now say that that was the wrong approach i've constantly think it's the wrong approach and it's and it's a wrong discussion to think about locked down and not locked down it is it do not make decease that means if you do something that shot and decisive very fast you
10:05 am
benefit on the long run so it's not about sustained lockdown it's about that very decisive fast measure at the right time which could touch and the public in sweden would work on going into every measure it chaps need to be explained why and that has not been taken place. so is it a failure of communication the government's part and the government has been saying mass do not rock the government hasn't said that they've asked him to mark to transmission that means that you can't in fact from somebody who doesn't know don't you. know the different tracing tests in tracing and isolating if it's not too bad it's not just honest has not been communicated so how can be how we can make informed decision it can't that's my opinion
