Sweet Sweet Sweden

Sweden is humming along, as David Horowitz observes.

From the Blaze article:

On Tuesday, Sweden reported 0 deaths and just 77 cases. Over the past week, deaths have been no higher than two per day. What is so remarkable is that while there are other countries that have had near-zero deaths for even longer, Sweden has achieved this through herd immunity; prevented the lockdown deaths, emotional abuse, drug deaths, suicides, and financial ruin plaguing other countries; and – most importantly – is more fortified against a resurgence than these other countries that delayed herd immunity.

We are now seeing a resurgence in many countries that were thought to have skated through this with minimal exposure, such as Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Germany, Australia, and Israel. The hallmark of all these countries is that they have had strict mask-wearing regimens for months.

While Sweden has had a higher death rate THAN OTHER SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES it is still below many of the countries that locked down early. And there are reasons for Sweden's higher numbers, including more immigrants, a high percentage of Swedes who visited Italy when this was first breaking, and one of the oldest populations in Europe. Most deaths occurred in nursing homes.

So now Sweden has come through and there will be few if any more deaths. Meanwhile their economy is humming right along. The rest of the Continent, and indeed the World - not so much. They listened to the Chinese World Health Organization and America's CDC.

The Swedes did what we always used to do. And it worked better than this imbecilic policy imposed on everyone.
