Swedish Junior Team Dealing With Huge Covid Outbreak

The Swedish National Junior Team is slated to fly to Edmonton this weekend and by all accounts there's some uncertainty if they will be doing so. The team has been dealing with a huge Covid outbreak as we have reported this week. It's now being announced a fourth player and their coach have the virus.

Sweden would now be without four of the best players and there's still a very good chance more players are going to be announced ineligible to travel.  

At this point with almost every team being impacted by the virus, is it even smart to host the tournament? That's for the higher-ups to decide, but if more and more teams lose personnel, perhaps they pull the plug.
