Sky News interview about covid-19

I did an interview with Sky News in Australia on the 22nd of August about covid-19, my experiences from working in the Emergency Room during the last few months, and what I think about the Swedish herd immunity strategy. The complete interview can be found here.

For more of my thoughts on covid-19, see my perspective on covid-19 in Sweden and my article about T-cell immunity and what it means for covid-19.

I am rolling out a ton of new science-backed content over the coming months, including:

- Analyses of the benefits and risks of all common supplements and medications
- The keys to a longer, healthier life (possibly quite different from what you may have heard)
- A long-term follow-up of the health consequences of the covid pandemic and global lockdown.

I am a practicing physician in Stockholm, Sweden. I studied medicine at Karolinska Institutet (home of the Nobel prize in medicine). My main interests are evidence based medicine, medical ethics, and medical history. Every day I get asked questions by my patients about health, diet, exercise, supplements, and medications. The purpose of this blog is to try to understand what the science says and to translate the science in to a format that non-scientists can understand.

  1. Very unusal these days with objective fact based information presented in a calm and structual manner, also information coming directly from the emergency room makes it so much more important, well done.

  2. Great work man..Thank you..

  3. The first problem with Australians is that they have a great deal of difficulty coming to terms with death particularly in the 27 – 55 age group. Curiously that age group is fairly comfortable with violent death on the roads, in highly competitive dangerous sports, in the workplace and in military combat but are ‘shit’ scared of dying from a disease. (Apologies for the s word but it best describes their visceral fear of death!) The age group (mine) most at risk of dying from Covid are generally comfortable with the mortality rates among our age group. We know that we are going to die from respiratory/renal/liver/cardiac complications as the normal course of events around a more long standing terminal disease … cancer etc. The second problem is that now Australians have entered a ‘punitive’ stage …. if someone in my community gets a positive Covid test then thousands of people in my community will have to go into lockdown eg. Melbourne! Do take a look at my webpage …. http://www.medlabstats.com/page15.htm where I have made similar scientific and statistical arguments to your own …. but desisted recently because the little science, which featured in the earlier stages of the outbreak, has been pushed out of the debate. The debate has now moved into one where politicians are trying to save face and the business community are crying ‘foul play’. Cheers Tom Hartley, Tasmania, Australia.
