Sweden’s Covid-19 experiment is over.
After a late autumn surge in infections led to rising hospitalizations and deaths, the government has abandoned its attempt—unique among Western nations—to combat the pandemic through voluntary measures.
Like other Europeans, Swedes are now heading into the winter facing restrictions ranging from a ban on large gatherings to curbs on alcohol sales and school closures—all aimed at preventing the country’s health system from being swamped by patients and capping what is already among the highest per capita death tolls in the world.

COUNTRIES MAJOR TOWNS IN CRISIS,UGANDA POLICE FORCE BOSSES NOWHERE TO BE SEEN.
Human rights lawyers and activists want the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to take interest in the recent acts of violence by agents of security forces, especially the police.
Isaac Semakadde, a human rights lawyer and activist, told The Independent that special attention should focus on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Martins Okoth Ochola and his deputy (DIGP) Maj. Gen. Steven Sabiiti Muzeyi.
He said they are responsible for permitting or failing to take appropriate measures or to exercise due diligence to prevent, punish, investigate or redress the harm caused by election campaign-related extrajudicial killings and election interference witnessed in the last month, especially during protests after presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was arrested.
Ochola and Sabiiti have been conspicuously quiet and missing but Semakadde says the silence of current police top leaders does not give them immunity to prosecution. He says Ochola and Sabiiti are by law directly responsible for the actions of the police force under Articles 20(2) and 221 of the Constitution.
