I go over the recent news about the WHO praising Sweden as a model for other nations with respect to how they responded to COVID-19. The mainstream media and public opinion was harsh, giving Sweden the evil eye, saying they blundered and how bad it was. But I've done calculations on death rates for the populations of lockdown US and no-lockdown Sweden, and they were pretty much the same 2 weeks ago, and still are nearly the same now. The media was fooling the public.
The difference is one country is fining and arresting people for being too close, and has closed businesses, putting people out of work, raising poverty and unemployment, increasing depression, domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse and suicides. We haven't felt the full effects of the government's failure to respond to COVID-19 by implementing lockdowns and forced isolation edicts. COVID itself will have done much less damage to Sweden than other western nations and their governments policies.
