I’m acting as an anchor but my eyes are not on camera I am learning swedish and practising my pronounciation by reading a news from local online news about the updates of corona virus in Sweden That was the news in friday, 28th Februari 2020 at 9 pm There are 5 new people that confirmed on infected by corona virus First time were 2 person then become seven and last update 28th February become 11 people are invected I want to share a little bit about corona virus in Sweden especially in Stockholm city I feel like there is no panic from people here even there are many news about it every day always about corona updates in the news In Asia you can see people are starting to wear breathing mask In Sweden I went to Centralen and to central city where many people around I haven’t seen one person wearing breathing mask When I found one, it was an asian person not a swedish What I knew here in Sweden wearing a mask is quite strange maybe they were wondering why we have mask on our face One time before this corona virus come up I got flu But I need to go to school So I wear a mask so I will not spread to people But then someone come over me and ask me in English maybe because he knew I’m not swedish Someone come to me and wonder if he can ask something I thought he was a bad guy But he was just ask ”May I know why you have mask?” and I answer ”I’m sick” And he said thank you and just gone away I was like ”Am I wrong wearing this mask?” I even bought one box of masker since they don’t sell in piece But the next day I don’t dare to wear mask anymore because everyone were strarring at me I feel like they saw me as person who wants to spread sickness since only me who had the masker Thats what I thought Before corona virus become big Swedish people are so aware with influenza As we might know influenza kills more people than corona virus even three times higher but the news is so big about this corona virus So about influenza in Sweden people are so tight to a person who had cold They are not allowed to go to work or school Someone might be mad at you if you still coming And when you healed, its suggested to stay home one day after you feel better Just like a story from a swedish mom who complained When a sick kid return to school and the parents put them to school because the parents need to get back to work But they thought that this kid is supposed to stay home for one more day or the kid will invected to other kids at school Maybe they still have the virus So the other kids become sick too That is how swedish do here If you are sick, you are not allowed to go to work or school I was thinking about when I was still working when I was sick and having a bad cold my boss still call me to come to work because there is no other person can handle my work But here is the opposite, you can not come If you come, they might kick you back home Isn’t that nice And there is one of my frien, Lia She just came back from Indonesia and transit in Singapore before flying to Sweden She told me she’s not allowed to come to her office for a week She must work from home Because she was just travel abroad and Singapore is one of the country who are invected to corona virus So she’s not allowed to come to work for a while So if you are visiting Sweden and you put your masker on people will see you strange You are not supposed to be around other people Last time I saw someone wearing mask and she’s Asian And people on the train are starring at her It didn’t look like you are avoiding viruses, but looks like you are the one who brings viruses Thats what I thought And some of Indonesian friends trying to look for mask and they said But I haven’t check it yet That Apoteks are run out of masker Really? How come? Since I haven’t seen people in Sweden wearing mask Especially in Stockholm So why they don’t have masker? Maybe Maybe Apoteks keep the stocks so there will be no chaos or people panicking then people start to buy alot of masker Maybe Thats just my theory What do you think? Do you experience the same as I am? When people starring at you when you wear mask? Please write in comment section My point is With all the news about corona virus especially there are more people got invected in Sweden Hopefully we”ll not panic Keep ourself healthy our stamina I heard that corona virus become danger when you have other illnes before the invection So if you are healthy, and you got the symptons just rest and stay at home Thats it for my swedish practice today together with some thoughts around corona virus in Stockholm Sweden Thanks for watching write your comment bellow and see you soon
