I agree that Norway has a come-together-for-the-good-of-all attitude that does not exist in the US or to the same extent in Sweden. But we also have to remember that Norwegians are much more stationary than are the Swedes and do not feel the need to constantly travel to the rest of the world like Swedes, keeping the risk of exposure to a minimum. They are also much more strict when it comes to immigration policies. And now when the boarders between Sweden and Norway are opening up, Norwegians line up to buy groceries and booze in Sweden like never before. Not good if you ask me, considering Sweden's relaxed approach to the virus. As a Swede living in California, my home country's approach drives me insane.
