Today’s class is on a quite heavy topic. The 2004 Tsunami in the Indian ocean. It’s focused on the management after the tsunami hit. It’s quite impressive actually. And embarrassing that Swedish government was so slow to respond. Before this year I’ve always thought that people leaving Sweden can’t expect the swedish Government to just swoop in and save them whenever something happen, but what I hadn’t asked myself before was: how many Thai people died because local doctors were busy working on swedes? There’s no answer on that question. But with the hospitality and putting foreigner first here, I can guess. We learned today that by day three many foreigners were evacuated to the private hospitals in Bangkok and the local hospitals could focus on the local people. By new years, five days after the tsunami hit, hospital operations had returned to normal.
