Sweden's controversial decision not to impose a strict lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic led to too many deaths, the man behind the policy, Anders Tegnell, has acknowledged.
Sweden has seen a far higher mortality rate than its nearest neighbours and its nationals are being barred from crossing their borders.
Dr Tegnell told Swedish radio more should have been done early on.
"There is quite obviously a potential for improvement in what we have done."
Sweden has counted 4,542 deaths and 40,803 infections in a population of 10 million, while Denmark, Norway and Finland have imposed lockdowns and seen far lower rates.
Denmark has seen 580 deaths, Norway has had 237 deaths and Finland 321. Sweden reported a further 74 deaths on Wednesday.

So many RW'ers were pointing to Sweden and saying, See...it's all right!

The Swedish PM will be played by Homer Simpson: Doh!!

Mad

Sweden currently has a right wing "laissez faire" guvmn't...

As I pointed out a few weeks ago, that dumbfuck political-medico in charge of their response simply didn't have a clue ==

* Claiming a 'herd immunity' would come about when 60% of the population had been exposed and survived (i.e. developed immunity) --  whereas the real world experts on epidemiology have stated that 'herd immunity' would come about when around more like 95% have been exposed..

In other words, waiting for 'herd immunity' to develop would be waiting too long...

Swedish, US and British 'dumb fuck' administrations :  0,  0,  0.

And, as American CDC physicians, who are no longer permitted to go public, warn: immunity is rarely permanent. We can possibly develop a vaccine, but what is the duration? 6 months? 1-year?
