1. They didn't beat anything.

Presumably entering a second wave.
"Sweden registered 752 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, the highest daily rise since June, Health Agency statistics showed, the latest in a steady rise in infections in recent weeks after months of limited spread during the summer holiday season."

4. Wow - so they thot they'd beaten it - then got complacent ?

There's just no hope for the dysfunctional species known as hooomons.

12. Nope, they didn't beat anything. Had more deaths than EU countries that had more population.

New cases are on the rise. They lost a lot people. The one thing that set them apart is they didn't really seem to care.

Look at the countries with large populations that actually seemed to beat the virus back by using masks, social distancing and lock downs. China, Japan, S. Korea etc. The Swedish solution seems to be pushed by those who want things to stay open for the economy, get rid of the sickly elders, and believe that they have superior genes. "Herd immunity" by another name is "herd mentality."

On the advice of a terrible health minister. Lots of fascists there too.

11. Seniors were given morphine! to ease their dying

Was a special report on PBS NewsHour that I have been meaning to post here

Denmark and Sweden responded differently to the pandemic. How did they fare?

From the transcript

Malcolm Brabant:

Another professor, Yngve Gustafson, told a newspaper that nursing home deaths amounted to active euthanasia.

General practitioner Jon Tallinger resigned from the Swedish Health Service in protest.

Jon Tallinger:

What I saw in my inner eye, so to speak, was thousands of people suffocating to death with these instructions that came from the very top.

Malcolm Brabant:

For Tallinger, this video was the smoking gun. It issued instructions to Swedish care staff. There was no suggestion of sending patients to hospital. Instead, it prescribed morphine and a sedative used in end-of-life palliative care.



Jon Tallinger:

The Swedish health care system wasn't overwhelmed because they didn't send anyone to the hospital. They died in their homes and the care homes.
