Sweden More FREE than USA: Sweden's OPEN COUNTRY During COVID19 (2020)
Sweden official: Coronavirus strategy of keeping country open seems to be working
Sweden's top epidemiologist believes his country could reach "herd immunity" for COVID-19 in the population by May.
“According to our modelers [at the Public Health Agency of Sweden], we are starting to see so many immune people in the population in Stockholm that it is starting to have an effect on the spread of the infection,” Dr. Anders Tegnell told recently local reporters, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
“Our models point to some time in May.”
While Sweden has canceled large sporting and other events, schools, gyms, bars and restaurants have remained open, relying on citizens to do what is necessary to keep themselves safe.
"The government has banned gatherings of 50 people and barred visits to nursing homes. It also banned non-essential travel to Sweden from outside the EU," the Daily Mail reported.
John Burn-Murdoch of the Financial Times noted in a Monday tweet that Stockholm, Sweden's capital city and largest population center (2.4 million in the metro area), has seen a decline in new hospitalizations.
According to Johns Hopkins, Sweden has 14,777 confirmed cases and 1,580 deaths.
Critics have pointed out that Sweden has had a significantly higher death rate -- at 118 per one million people -- than the surrounding Nordic nations of Norway, Finland and Denmark.
"Sweden’s per-million tally is also significantly higher than the 42 recorded in Germany – but remains lower than the [United Kingdom’s] rate of 182 (as of Tuesday) and far below Italy’s 349 and Spain’s 399," The Guardian reported.
Statista shows Sweden's death rate per million at approximately 151 versus the United States at 124.
