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.

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.
