This photo was taken by a Stockholm police officer at 4.58pm on Black Friday. This is the main shopping street in the centre of Stockholm.
What on earth were people thinking? We are in the middle of a pandemic with one of the highest infection and death rates in the world, under recommendations to not go out. Our infection rate is rocketing. Online shopping exists.
My daughter has COVID-19, her fiancé has suspected COVID-19 and so does my best friend. My daughter works as a social worker in a very vulnerable area, her husband drives trains, my best friend works at the police. They all work in essential services. But people like this have jeopardised their health so they can buy a bargain which is probably not a bargain at all. What is wrong with people?
