Honestly, this is not about what is or not. allowed.

In the current conditions, flying anywhere is just madness, whatever the rules or availaibilty of tests- and puts everyone else at rish. Surely people can wait until Spring?

Families are not allowed to see each other, never mind visit the sick and the dying- people are really suffering and struggling- losing jobs too.
Interesting - perhaps not everyone sees this crisis in the same way as you?
If we'd all carried on working, getting on with life, crying for those who died, burying them and carrying on like people did before the age of Twitter and generalised hysteria, then it would be nearly over now. About 0.5% of the population would have died, nearly all over 75, and hardly anyone would have lost their job or would be threatened with it. (or worse, in poorer countries)
I take it you're not a Swede, neither am I, but this last 10 months I've often wished I was. Death is part of life and cannot be banned, the attempts to do so are doing more damage than the virus. IMO keeping the economic wheels spinning is really important.
