It looks like freedom is happening in country after country in Europe, with Switzerland now having removed almost all restrictions.

It’s happening. It’s happening here, it’s happening there, it’s happening everywhere. Freedom is beginning to return.

From the 17th of February Switzerland is beginning to go back to normal. Authorities are scrapping the use of covid passports to enter restaurants and other indoor venues and there are no more attendance limits on large gatherings.

Face masks are no longer mandatory in schools, shops or at work, although they are still required in public transport and in healthcare facilities until the end of March.

Travel restrictions.

Switzerland is also removing travel restrictions for those traveling from countries within the EU/EEA, meaning there is no vaccination requirements or any requirements for a negative test to enter Switzerland.

Things are happening fast now.

Denmark removed all restrictions just a few weeks ago, and after that, country after country have been removing restrictions at a fast pace. Sweden have followed Denmark. As I wrote about in my last post on Substack, Iceland will be removing all restrictions shortly. Norway has already removed most restrictions.

But now it’s not just the Nordic countries that are removing restrictions, freedom is spreading to the rest of Europe now as well, with Switzerland removing almost all restrictions.

But not only Switzerland. Just recently Portugal has announced they will be removing many restrictions, including use of covid passports in many public places. And to add on top of that, the Netherlands is also beginning to remove some restrictions.

Scandinavian countries led the way for freedom, and now other European countries are following suit, and it’s happening quickly.

It looks like 15 days to flatten the curve is beginning to come to an end after almost 2 years…

Covid passports are being scrapped left right and center. In Denmark, Sweden and Norway covid passports are not used at all. Switzerland are removing the use of them and Portugal is stopping the use of them for many public places.

Imagine that. Living in a world where you no longer have to show your papers to be allowed to do everyday things. Almost like it is something called freedom. Just like life used to be two years ago.

There are still many countries where covid passports are used however and we will just have to wait and see what they will do. But when more and more countries are opening up, that leaves the countries still locked up, looking like very unattractive holiday destinations...

I want to thank everyone who has subscribed to my Substack newsletter. I’m being censored by Twitter after reporting on freedom. If you haven’t subscribed yet, please do so, so that you can continue hearing from me directly without censorship!

(Prime Minister) Taoiseach Micheàl Martin has confirmed that almost all Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted from 6am on Saturday in his 23rd state of the nation address this evening.

Announcing an end to almost all Covid restrictions, the Taoiseach has said it is now time to "be ourselves again".

Solidarity with each other and trust in science has got this country to a place where the vast majority of restrictions can be lifted, Micheál Martin has said.

He said there have been many twists and turns along the pandemic path but "today is a good day".

On Friday, the Cabinet signed off plans to lift all regulations – except for mask-wearing, self-isolation and Covid passes for international travel – from 6am on Saturday.

A report from the National Public Health Emergency Team (Nphet) has advised Government that Ireland has “weathered the Omicron storm” and that all the key indicators have stabilised and are going in the right direction.

The lifting of restrictions, including an end to social distancing, the scrapping limits on capacity for all indoor events, including weddings and sporting fixtures, as well as dropping the requirement for Covid passes for hospitality will come into force from 6am, Mr Martin added.

"We should all take a moment to appreciate how far we've come, to appreciate the effort and sacrifice of those who put themselves in harm's way to keep us safe to remember and appreciate the lives and contribution of those we lost. We think of all those who died with Covid and indeed, all those who passed away over the course of the last two years who we were not able to mourn as we would have liked or as they deserved," he said.

Pointing to the first Dáil of 1919, Mr Martin said the relationship and trust between the people and the Government of Ireland has always been "very precious and powerful".

"It meant that when our country was hit with this unprecedented health emergency when your government asked extraordinary things of you, introduced previously unimagined restrictions on your lives, you responded, you did what you were asked to do."

Guidance on household visits and restrictions on gatherings at indoor and outdoor events will be lifted.

The Covid-19 pass for international travel will remain, due to the Covid-19 situation in other countries.

Masks will still be needed in all the locations where they are currently required.

Protective measures will also remain in place in primary and secondary schools.

Mr Martin strongly encouraged all parents to talk to their GP about any concerns they may have in getting their children vaccinated.

"Please if you haven't already, get your vaccine, get your booster," he said in his televised address.

Mr Martin told the nation: "Spring is coming and I don't know if I've ever looked forward to one as much as I'm looking forward to this one.

"Humans are social beings and we Irish are more social than most. As we look forward to this Spring, we need to see each other again, we need to see each other smile, we need to sing again."

Arts Minister Catherine Martin confirmed the scale of the lifting of restrictions, saying that the St Patrick's Day parades will go ahead as normal. She said that €2m has been committed to the events.

"The department is funding over €2m in the events for that day and there will also be strong online content as well.

“All of this is being worked on and has been worked on that – we’re doing contingency plans behind the scenes but we’re delighted now that the physical parade will take place and we’ll announce those details soon.”

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said the Government can't rule out a "6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th" wave of Covid, but says that the challenge is surveillance, ensuring that we spot outbreaks and ensuring that the health service was equipped to deal with any further waves.

Chief medical officer, Dr Tony Holohan, said that he was aware that some people would feel worried that the reopening was coming too quickly, but said that the high rate of vaccination, personal behaviour and the less severe effects of the Omicron variant meant it was safe and possible.

However, both he and Mr Martin said that the pandemic is not over.


Definitely worth your time to watch.
