the Covid-19 to put an end to three decades of privatisation and austerity in the western world. The neglected crisis preparedness, and a hard, lean health care is indicative of how ill-prepared, in Sweden and in many other countries in our region have been faced with a major crisis, like the one we are currently experiencing. Let's move on and never repeat the historical mistake has been committed.
One of the ways is to look at the emergency response centre is to be regarded as an insurance, and the cost of it as an insurance policy. It is the negative of the value of a crisis is the possibility that it will occur in a given period of time multiplied by the total cost of the crisis. The maximum insurance premium that is ”profitable” to pay everything that is below this cost. It may sound like ekonomistiskt, however, in principle, of course, that the system has a certain capacity and readiness, in all respects, in order to cope with temporary peaks in production. This applies both to the stock of medications and equipment, staffing, and facilities.
but the over-capacity on a par with what analysts have long been asking for would have meant that, in Sweden, in the day of been much better.
In Spain, the government has opted to take over the control of privately-owned hospitals in Italy to be socialised public transport. France, the meeting of the president of the Emmanuel Macron has called upon the nation and the world, to a re-examination of the market opportunities in the public sector.
today, however, large parts of the health care system is so streamlined that the hospital is not uncommon for the top of the stabsläge an ordinary Thursday, on the grounds that it is difficult to get out of the staff. It is easy to see that there could be a lot worse, at great trauma and crises, like the current one.
In hospitals, usually as a guideline to talk about a more reasonable figure, if the occupancy rate of the beds at 85% to 90%. This means that you should have a surplus capacity of between 10 and 15 per cent, in order to be able to handle the occasional but reasonably frequent event of production stoppages, for example, by the trauma of the past and the recurrence of influensaperioder. Pre-covid-19th century to the outbreak of low intensive care unit in Sweden is already at over 100 per cent occupancy rate.
the Problem is basically a shortage of beds or equipment in and of itself, but to the economies of scale in staffing and in the activities carried out. It bears witness, also, the regular comparison of the out of the world. Sweden ranks at the bottom when it comes to the proportion of the intensivvårdsplatser per 100,000 inhabitants in the EUROPEAN union. From 2011 to 2019 is also reduced intensivvårdsplatserna of from 5.8 to 5.1 per 100,000 residents. This is during a period of increased population growth, accelerating globalisation and the increasing risk of a pandemic.
If we assume that a 10 per cent excess capacity is a reasonable level at all points in the treatment chain, so we are talking about a subsidy of around 50 billion a year in Sweden. It's the equivalent of about one percentage point of gdp and can be compared to the massive payments on the national debt, 250 billion, then in 2006, in conjunction with one of the west's most stringent fiscal policy framework. The value of the ”save the barns”, as it is now called.
and , as a result of the conditions in Sweden in a situation where they are forced to compete on the international markets in order to secure the vaccine for their citizens. When the public health, Morgan Johansson (S) saw the problem in 2006, and far-sought to re-establish the state of the production, it was one of the first decisions mr Fredrik Reinfeldt (M) and rev it up and when he came to power. Instead, the implemented tax cuts in at the equivalent of 140 billion dollars per year.

The public's trust in public institutions, government agencies, and to each other is essential for us to be able to keep the country together. We would therefore like to stress the importance of continuing to listen to the Folkhälsomyndighetens, recommendations, and advice. Together, we are going to do this.
this Option for the system to identify a new way forward. How can you see what a strong community we are talking about look like?
However, this will require a greater effort from politicians in the future. And there will be a need for a reassessment of economic policies, and how best to organise well-being.
. Not only in order to save many of the acute health crisis, but also to get the economic wheels to get us out of the recession and the mass unemployment that is likely to be a very time-consuming. It would be also irresponsible of the Liberal party and the Centre party, to force a deterioration of the labor law and the introduction of market rents at a time when hundreds of thousands of swedes are at risk of losing their jobs.
We can now see a way forward that re-use utensils that have been long forgotten. In Spain, the government has opted to take over the control of privately-owned hospitals in Italy to be socialised public transport. France, the meeting of the president of the Emmanuel Macron has called upon the nation and the world, to a re-examination of the market opportunities in the public sector. It is the Swedish government's co-operation parties, and the conservatives, the bloc be subjected to a hefty soul-searching.
in the Health - care act, which guarantees equal health care needs should also be enforced in practice in all healthcare and healthcare operations. Coronakrisen may not also be a ojämlikhetsbomb, where the well-off are once again allowed to buy their way ahead in the queue.
this Option is for the system to identify a new way forward. How can you see what a strong community we are talking about look like? The time has come for a broad and in-depth review of the policy.
There are now neo-liberalism is faced with the reality of the situation. It does not stand the test.
