Austrian ski resort spread the virus across Europe and US in January and chose not to report cases
The UK's coronavirus patient zero caught the killer bug at an Austrian ski party'.. He joined three friends there from January 15 to 19, with the others travelling home - two to Denmark and one to Minnesota in the US - sick

Ischgl, dubbed 'Ibiza of the Alps', faces tough questions over how revellers ended up transmitting the illness across Europe. The resort has been linked to hundreds of cases in Austria, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark.

Despite concerns the virus was running rampant there, the slopes and bars were allowed to stay open for weeks. An investigation has been launched over whether an outbreak of the disease was covered up to protect trade around the time of local elections.

At one point Norway had as many infected while on vacation in Austria as Austria had confirmed cases within Austria. We were joking that Norwegians must have had contact with every single person reportedly infected in Austria, and indeed most were infected in Ischgl. We traced over 100 cases to one bar and its after-ski parties alone.

But it got worse since Austria reported low numbers it was initially not labeled a hot zone. So 14 day self quarantining rules did not apply to those who came home from Austria like they did for those who came from Italy. In turn those ski tourists then made up the major portion of person to person transmissions within Norway.

It was the case of Austria that made us realize we had to treat the whole planet as a hot zone and put anyone coming from the outside in self quarantine at home.

Well we still kept Sweden on a pedestal for a while until we realized what strategy they had chosen. The Swedes insisted we chose wrong and they right. They called us the experiment and not them. They had the scientific approach, we were acting crazy for closing schools, borders and eventually businesses. We responded with let's talk about this again next week brother.

Yesterday more people died in Stockholm in one day than all of Norway combined for they entire outbreak. They still point to the numbers of confirmed cases being lower than ours and try to convince themselves that they have it under control, as if that means anything. They test almost no one, while we are top 5 in test per million. Heja Sverige!

Yep, I was there, a part of it, unwittingly.
