12 countries rolled back Covid restrictions

by Alison Ryan

Sweden and Switzerland joined Denmark, Norway, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Italy, Lithuania, France and the UK in announcing they will lift COVID restrictions and open up their countries.

Top Israeli officials also announced this week they are abolishing the country’s “Green Pass” COVID vaccine passport for restaurants, hotels, gyms and theaters.The policy update will take effect Feb. 6, Prime Minister Naftali Bennet’s government said, pending approval by a parliamentary committee. Israel’s proof-of-vaccination policy will remain in effect for events such as parties or weddings.

Sweden will lift all COVID restrictions by Feb. 9, the Swedish government said today.
According to Politico, the Swedish Public Health Agency said it reassessed COVID as “not being socially critical” due to a better understanding of the Omicron variant, which is milder and associated with fewer hospitalizations. “It’s time to open up Sweden,” said Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson. “The pandemic isn’t over, but it is moving into a new phase.” The decision to open Sweden came a day after Switzerland, citing high immunity levels and the milder Omicron variant, announced it will abolish mandatory work-from-home and the quarantine rules beginning today. The government also will lift health measures at the borders and tourists will no longer need to receive Swiss COVID certificates.

The Swiss government said it planned to phase out other restrictions after consulting with 26 cantons, employers, trade unions and parliamentary committees. In two weeks, the government will determine the next steps to relax pandemic measures depending on the health situation, according to an official statement. Options include a staggered exit strategy or an abrupt end to all COVID measures on Feb. 17.

Denmark is to classify COVID as endemic disease. Just days before Sweden and Switzerland’s announcements, Denmark became the first country in the European Union to lift all COVID restrictions, reclassifying COVID as an endemic disease. Danish Health Minister Magnus Heunicke on Feb. 1 wrote a letter to the parliament’s epidemiology committee stating COVID was no longer a “socially critical disease.” Based on the recommendations of the committee, the government decided to scrap COVID restrictions. The “rules will lapse when the illness will no longer be categorized as ‘socially critical’ on 1 February 2022,” Heunicke wrote. The classification of a disease as “socially critical” gave the government authority to implement broad restrictive measures such as shutting businesses and making mask-wearing mandatory. An endemic disease circulates freely but is recognized as posing less of a threat to societies. “No one can know what will happen next December,” Heunicke told CNN on Monday. “But we promised the citizens of Denmark that we will only have restrictions if they are truly necessary and we’ll lift them as soon as we can. That’s what’s happening right now.”
When asked about vaccine mandates, Heunicke said: “Luckily we don’t need that in Denmark … I’m really happy that we don’t need it because it’s a very troubling path to move that way.”
Søren Brostrøm, director-general of Denmark’s Health Authority agreed: “I do not believe in imposed vaccine mandates. It’s a pharmaceutical intervention with possible side effects. You need as an authority, to recognize that. I think if you push too much, you will have a reaction — action generates reaction, especially with vaccines.” Danish authorities will still recommend taking at-home tests when coming into contact with large groups of people and will make PCR tests available to the public. Travelers entering the country will still be tested upon entry.

Other European Companies drop COVID restrictions – Italy, France, Norway, Lithuania, England and Finland also relaxed restrictions, Bloomberg reported.

“We should discuss whether it’s time for us to take a different viewpoint and start unwinding restrictions even with a high number of infections,” Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin told reporters. “I hope that we can be rid of restrictions during February.” At a meeting in Helsinki to discuss the pace of removing restrictions, the government decided to lift all limits on gatherings and ease restrictions on restaurants and bars on Feb.14. Night clubs will remain closed until March 1. Cultural venues, events and sports will be free from restrictions.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s administration met Wednesday to discuss how to curb restrictions. The government will initially focus on quarantine rules for children and plans to cut the 10-day isolation requirement down to five.

France on Wednesday ended mandatory work-from-home rules, eliminated requirements on face masks outdoors and lifted attendance restrictions at stadiums and theaters. France’s looser rules went into effect on Wednesday, ending mandatory work-from-home rules, eliminating requirements on face masks outdoors and lifting attendance limits in stadiums and theaters.

The Lithuanian government is dropping its requirement to present a vaccination certificate in public areas, such as restaurants and sporting events, and unvaccinated workers will no longer be required to undergo weekly testing.

Norway followed suit and lifted restrictions on private gatherings, bars and restaurants and will not require border testing.

England last week announced it was lifting its COVID restrictions. Beginning Jan. 27, face coverings were no longer required by law anywhere in England and the legal requirement for COVID passes to enter large venues and clubs were scrapped. The government also dropped guidance for face-covering in classrooms, advice for people working from home and restrictions for nursing home visitors.

On Jan. 26, the Netherlands reopened restaurants, bars, museums and theaters as part of a broader easing of restrictions. Lockdowns had little-to-no benefit on public health, analysis shows

Few studies, if any, have been carried out to determine whether vaccine passports and COVID restrictions actually lowered COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
However, a recent analysis published by researchers at John Hopkins found COVID lockdown measures implemented in the U.S. and Europe had almost no effect on public health.
“We find little-to-no evidence that mandated lockdowns in Europe and the United States had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality rates,” the researchers wrote. The researchers also examined shelter-in-place orders, finding they reduced COVID mortality only by 2.9%.
Studies assessing only shelter-in-place orders found a mortality reduction of 5.1%, but when combined with other lockdown measures, shelter-in-place orders actually increased COVID mortality by 2.8%.
Researchers found limits on gatherings may have actually increased COVID mortality. They wrote: “[Shelter-in-place orders] may isolate an infected person at home with his/her family where he/she risks infecting family members with a higher viral load, causing more severe illness. But often, lockdowns have limited people’s access to safe (outdoor) places such as beaches, parks and zoos, or included outdoor mask mandates or strict outdoor gathering restrictions, pushing people to meet at less safe (indoor) places.”

COVID lockdown measures also contributed to “reducing economic activity, rising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence and undermining liberal democracy,” the report said.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  2. It’s true I believe, that vaccinated people are dangerous to be around. Three days ago, I suddenly got a bad dose of flu – in the middle of summer! I never get it even in winter!!
    I feel very sick, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, temperature (the sore throat and headache are gone.) I’ve been taking 7 drops of low strength oral iodine in water daily and vitamin C, otherwise I’d be worse I believe.

    It can only mean that being surrounded by double vaxed people is dangerous.
    I’ll hole up for a while until all symptoms are passed.

  3. Poor Wheatley,

    Let’s see now… he did OK until November or December last year when he started getting injections and six to eight weeks later he died with bio-engineering experimental injections.

    We can now see that the vagueness of the idiotic phrase “dying with Covid” also justifies other phrases such as “dying with injections”.

    These days the TRUE cause of death is no longer important. What’s important is that everyone stay “on message” even if it’s BS.

  4. WordPress / Operation Covid Shield strikes again. Whenever I have to make contact with the CoVID Regime via a government office I always take note of the surround. Yesterday, I had to go into a Big Q office of public transport. Met at the door by security in PPE. Everyone masked – behind the desk and waiting in the socially distanced que.

    Where is my mask? I present my exemption document. It is very official looking as I got my techie to make it up for me on my computer. Under a doctor name that I pulled out of a local bulk bill I composed a page of medicalese that stated I am exempt because I breathe oxygen and not CO2. As a mammal, I have a specific respiratory condition.

    The document was scrutinized and confirmed that the doctor did indeed work at the address I stated on my exemption. Okay. So first hurdle. Big frown from a non-cis gender type person at the reception desk wearing a rainbow lanyard. I am offered a complimentary mask to keep us all safe. I decline and am shown to the naughty corner way at the back. As I will be paying cash I am told that my number will be called when the payment station for cash at the customer service desk is attended. That would be No. 5. It is vacant. No one in a rainbow lanyard with a big smiley face looks to be taking cash payments at No 5 anytime soon.

    As there is a seat in front of that station I decide to plonk myself down and wait there instead of the naughty corner. A very unsmiling non-cis gender in a rainbow lanyard comes over to move the masked and socially distanced que a little further away, massage the covid and reassure them they are ‘doing the right thing’ and are all covid safe. I am again offered a mask. ‘I am very covid safe’ I reassure the covid monitor. And I take out my lunch and have it on the counter with my tea from my flask. One covidian in line just can’t stand it – a super Karen on steroids. She comes straight over. ‘How can you live with yourself’ she garbles into her mask. I offer her a cup of tea which she declines. On cue the air conditioner over station 5 begins to drip. Fortunately, I have an umbrella. She is furious. All the rainbow lanyards are furious.

    This is war.

  5. If the Covid Hoaxers running the pandemic can be exposed and put in the one ratbag, they have no platform, no moral high ground ‘in the public interest’ base for the vaxx mandates or vaxx ID totalitarian surveillance state schemes.

    The CoVID Hoax announced March 11 2020 by former Ethiopian Gook Tedros was / is a UN operation of cognitive warfare. The creation of this battlespace in the Western nations designated for Communist Takedown must be across the board total in order to achieve the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These are on the ‘must do’ list before the REAL NWO / JWO can be built from ZOG East.

    The ‘today is the first day of the NWO’ business from the WEF managed CHOs like Hazzard is Globalist script. It is a decoy. But they are piling all in on it in Australia to convince us that CoVID is real and deadly and we need to tank the economy and deploy Police Counter Terrorism against the elderly to keep us safe. (Good one Dutto – this is one goes straight to the Pool Room)

    What a sad and deeply shocking attitude for Glenn Wheatley and John Farnham to have and their blatant disregard for individual rights to informed consent to treatment and individual rights to refuse treatment under Nuremberg principles Nuremberg code.
