Excellent responses from Anne Linde. Strong, determined and well-spoken, despite super-difficult questions. Of course there are reasons to scrutinise and evaluate the Swedish strategy concerning the pandemic, but that people in the comments section are critizising her because of her SwEnglish is just pathetic. Would you have done the same if Donald Tusk had been interviewed, with his very strong Polish accent? I guess you are all doing that because your of your political orientation, and what's funny is that many of you can't even write proper Swedish :-)

@Amy Crunch, nope, I don't work for Linde. And why would I need to study English? It's been one of my working languages for decades. It's just that so many lowlives, whose own English is substandard, complain because Linde makes the occasional is/are-errors. Have a lovely day!

I cringe hearing our Foreign Minister! My ONLY excuse is that I never voted for this government, never have and never will. This just shows clearly how "flat" our own main stream media is. The way Sweden treats the elderly in homes now is a violence to human rights. NO oxygene - NOT allowed hospital care. When they have hard time breath they're given morphine instead! It's inhumane and torture. Imagine to slowly choke to death and you're given morphine so it "doesn't look so bad". And if the first chot doesn't help - they're given more.. To me this is murder under a false mask of humanity. Please. The surrounding world have to mark that this is NOT ok. I want to thank DW for being critical and put out tough and RELEVANT questions!

Deaths per million Population Country Total Deaths Deaths/Million USA 131,503 397 Sweden 5,411 536 worldometer Last updated: July 03, 2020, 12:47 GMT How U.S. city officials responded to the 1918 pandemic played a critical role in how many residents lived-and died. Over the course of two years, the Spanish Influenza of 1918-1919 killed more than 50 million people worldwide. When it was all over, the Spanish flu killed an estimated 675,000 Americans among a staggering 20 to 50 million people worldwide. Certain U.S. cities fared far worse than others, though, and looking back more than a century later there’s evidence that the earliest and most well-organized responses slowed the spread of the disease-at least temporarily-while cities that dragged their feet or let down their guard paid a heavier price.

If anything, the outcome of Sweden's approach cld only benefit the rest of the world with regard to Fighting this pandemic... it's unfortunate that the virus began spreading amongst the vulnerable population..of caz, that will result in a higher death rate...So please at least let's all respect Sweden for it's brave effort... Which other country has taken this approach... And all these is coming from a person from Singapore... We have the lowest covid death per capita rate in the world... I respect Sweden for their bravery. Plz continue and just improve in protecting the more vulnerable...

Sweden didn't want people from old age homes to go to hospitals. At the same time Sweden allowed Ventilators to be exported. Isn't it the duty of a Swedish politician to say "Let the 57 year old Italien die. We have to save the 77 year old Swedish. " ?
Amy Crunch

It's not really down to that. A little 02 would have saved perhaps 1000s of lives, but they're too incompetent to deal with that. Swedes can be notorious for being afraid to make the wrong decision. A pandemic is a time when you have to act decisively and quickly - as Mike Ryan of the WHO said: 'if you hesitate, you don't win'.

About her pronunciation: I’m also from Skåne/Scania and you know, Danish people don’t seem to care too much about their English pronunciation either - and who cares about that? At least not me 😃 as long as you can make yourself understood. In my opinion her grammar is (very) good. Russians, Germans and Italians also talk with heavy accent - nobody says anything about that ... The interviewer has the upper hand because she is English.

Okey so i listened trough the scandalous interview and didn't find it too strange. Though our politicians here in Sweden pays and owns all the media so it's abit of a Syndicate when they run an Agenda. They just aren't used to be questioned harsly so that part was kinda fun. I still don't know though why we have sent abroad all our Defibrillators and they have sentenced the old people to palliative death trough Morphine. They are thinking money, not people. Too france consfiscated over a million protective breathingmasks we was to use in the elderlycare and hospitals for their own greedy use. There is your European friendship. Im all for leaving EU, hope we will Swexit one of theese days.
