Swedish A&E Physician Dr. Sebastian Rushworth joins us to help clear up all the Chinese whispers, claims and debates regarding Sweden’s COVID response and their lifestyle, society, country. 

After this 1.5h podcast interview, we will once and for all put all this emotional debate on Sweden to rest.

Sebastian has been speaking up, mostly to help answer overwhelming foreign interest, on the realities of the Swedish response to COVID, what it was like in A&E during the peak period, and way of living during the epidemic and since. He has been featured a couple of times on Dr Malcolm Kendrick’s clinical blog, on Ivor Cummins podcast, and has also written extensively on his own blog. 

You’ll here all the Swedish insight you need regarding their culture, lifestyle and their “population density” as it relates to the COVID-19 response… all in one place, and from the #horsesmouth.

We covered SO MUCH. You’ll love it. After hearing this, you’ll be able to hold your own on Swedish #covid debate with confidence.
