It seems to me the massive security upgrades at airports although annoying
has saved many lives.

That article is ancient, a lot has happened in the last week. It says 146
have died of COVID-19 in Sweden but as of today at 17:37 GMT 2021 people in
Sweden have died of it and the death doubling time is 12 days. In Denmark
394 have died and the doubling time is 28 days. In Norway 191 have died and
the doubling time is 21 days. I want to move to South Korea, it's far closer to
where it all started and yet only 240 people have died from it and the
doubling time is 92 days, and they acted early and were super
aggressive with testing so unlike the latecomers and magical thinkers they
didn't have to shut down their economy to obtain those wonderful results.
