Authorities Blast Swedish Teens Over 'Deliberately Coughing On Elderly' Virus-Challenge

The 'Covidiots' have struck again. Authorities in the Swedish municipality of Eslov have warned residents that millennials are running around town "coughing, sneezing, and spitting beside the elderly in the so-called 'coronavirus challenge,'" reported RT News.

Eslov authorities have demanded parents in the town give their kids a stern "talk" after a surge in reports of Covidiots targeting the elderly with unsanitary behavior. At the moment, Sweden has defied the lockdown trend that is present across most of Europe, betting that its citizens will act responsibly during the public health crisis.

"Some of our elderly have experienced that youths deliberately cough, sneeze and spit near those that are in the city or in shops. Talk with your youths and especially react if you see that someone obviously is trying to provoke and behave disrespectfully. It is the responsibility of all of us to prevent infection, and make sure that everyone as much as possible can feel safe. Show consideration, take other people's concerns seriously and take care of yourself and others!"- Translated Facebook post from Eslov municipality.
However, public gatherings over 50 are banned, but there are limited restrictions on private meetings, parties, corporate events, libraries, and gyms.



Though standing at a bar is prohibited in the country, restaurants still offer table service, and all students over 16 have been asked to study at home.

With universities and high schools shut, that means some of the youth are running amuck across the country.

The Times of Sweden said the elderly do not feel safe in public with millennials running up to them coughing and yelling "corona."

YouTube account "Alpha & Ali," a couple of pranksters in Sweden, recorded video of them going up to strangers on the street while pretending to cough and claiming they have the virus.

Local Social Democrat politician Maria Hind Alias described Alpha & Ali as a "being general idiots and "pranking" the Corona virus. You think you're cool / cool."

Hej Xaliqasem och Xusseinmatar!

Ni går runt i min stad, skrämmer människor, är allmänna idioter och ”prankar ”på Coronaviruset. Ni tycker ni är häftiga/coola.

Jag noterar att ni spelar in i Eskilstuna. Kan ni vara vänliga och göra denna ”prank” på mig?

We noted on Tuesday that a group of American Covidiots on a spring break trip to Cabo tested positive for the virus after ignoring US government travel warnings.

A new normal is setting in across the world, the virus isn't going away anytime soon, and will likely hit specific countries in waves. The youth, ignoring social distancing measures and lockdowns, and even in an extreme case, knowingly or at least attempting to spread the virus to the elderly, has made containment efforts rather hard for governments.

I don't think many will do that on this side of the pond. Kinda playing the old Play Stupid Games Win Stupid Prizes routine. Sounds like a sure way to end up as a contestant for the nest Darwin Awards.

The covidiots will do that to someone's grandma and they will take exception to it. Probably not going to end well with the covidiots.

It just happened to me - and there's not a thing I can do about it because the two punks were on a 4-wheeler that looks just like all the others around here. I finally got out for a walk, hearing a few 4-wheelers - that's about all driving our winding, hilly road these days; not a whole bunch of them, but they have no license plates and they all look the same.

Was just walking around the bend from my home and heard one roaring up behind me, so I stepped even closer to the left of the road, now hearing loud coughing as they veered right up to me coughing as hard as they could at me, and then roared off. I just stood there trying to see if I could find anything by which to identify them as they disappeared over the hill. They wore heavy coats and helmets so nothing there either, not even an age or race. Went home to change and wash up, then tried to see if anything online talks about anything to do for possible exposure (apparently not, it only says 'do the 5' and do not get exposed).

I did let the police know about it just so it's on record, but there's nothing they can do since I can't identify the jerks or the 4-wheeler. So carrying on as usual with the vitamins, the hand-washing, the elderberry, etc. And after being taken by surprise outdoors (when I thought I was alert enough), I'll ramp up awareness level, and start carrying non-lethal self-defense.

But I can't get my head around the people who do this. They're everywhere, even on a country road in Wasilla. :(

I’ve come across this word a few times in the last week. Only one of the spellings has been correct.

Class is in session. ;)


Running amok, sometimes referred to as simply amok or having gone amok,[1] also spelled amuck or amuk, from the Southeast Asian Austronesian languages (especially Malaysian[2] and Indonesian[3]), is "an episode of sudden mass assault against people or objects usually by a single individual following a period of brooding that has traditionally been regarded as occurring especially in Malay culture but is now increasingly viewed as psychopathological behavior".[4]

Exactly what I have now - ready to go.....it's the kind that can be sprayed while still in the can holder on my belt. :) But I think just walking with my hand on it might be a good idea

If that happened to me, I would consider it attempted murder and shoot to kill.

I live in Texas. No one would bat an eye.
