When you open your borders to hostile invaders, low blood supply is an obvious consequence, but that’s the least of it. Heretofore known as the capital capital of Europe, Sweden is now competing with the UK for king of knife crime.
Thanks to a wave of knife crime in Gothenburg – Sweden’s second-largest city – healthcare facilities have reported that their blood reserves are running dangerously low.
Last week, healthcare professionals in Gothenburg sent out SMS texts to city residences imploring them to donate blood to alleviate shortages, which according to Sahlgrenska University Hospital’s Stefan Jakobsson, are due to a recent wave of knife attacks in the city, Sveriges Radio reports.
Among the generous Swedes who answered the call to donate was Richard Christofferson.“I got a text message that you should come in if you could. I do it to help others who need blood, but I also have too much iron in my body so I also need to give regularly,” Christofferson said.
Last week, Gothenburg witnessed two fatal stabbings in its city center. One of the stabbings occurred at the famous Nordstan shopping center.
A 21-year-old who allegedly carried the murder out and a 24-year-old who is thought to have assisted him have both been arrested by Gothenburg police.
Recently, Gothenburg locals have started to speak out about the center of the city becoming increasingly dangerous thanks to widespread violence, crime, and drug use.
In an interview with Aftonbladet, Gothenburg taxi driver Imad El-Saneh said, “It has become much worse than in the ’90s. It’s more people, more drugs, and people care less about what they do.”
Mikael Rying, a criminologist at Sweden’s National Operational Department (NOA) has stated that deadly stabbings have increased throughout the country to such an extent that they now rival levels seen during the 1990s
Louis Riddez, the chief physician in the trauma department of the Karolinska University Hospital echoed Ryings sentiments, saying that he’s witnessed an increase in non-lethal knife injuries as well.
“There’s a knife injury every other day on our unit, it was maybe once a week before,” Dr. Riddez said.
