Authorities in the Swedish municipality of Eslov have warned residents that teenage (migrants) are knowingly coughing, sneezing, and spitting beside the elderly in the so-called ‘coronavirus challenge.’
RT Many people online called the behaviour “disgusting” and “absolutely senseless” though some accused the municipality of spreading “fake news” from “racists” and that “young people” was a code word for something entirely different (Muslim invaders).
Parents have been advised to “talk” with their children after a number of reports of targeted unsavory and unsanitary behavior by the local Muslim youth against the elderly. Sweden has opted not to impose restrictions on the freedom of movement of its citizens, contrary to most other countries.
Meanwhile, a migrant duo from Eskilstuna behind the YouTube account “Alpha & Ali” posted a video several days ago in which they approached random people on the street while pretending to cough while claiming they have coronavirus.
