Sweden virus strategist admits measures shouldve been tighter.

Sweden’s top epidemiologist has admitted his strategy to fight Covid-19 resulted in too many deaths, after persuading his country to avoid a strict lockdown.

“If we were to encounter the same illness with the same knowledge that we have today, I think our response would land somewhere in between what Sweden did and what the rest of the world has done,” Anders Tegnell said in an interview with Swedish Radio.

Tegnell is the brains behind Sweden’s controversial approach to fighting the virus, and the government of Stefan Lofven has deferred to the epidemiologist in its official response to the pandemic. Gatherings of more than 50 people continue to be banned, but throughout the crisis Swedes have been able to visit restaurants, go shopping, attend gyms and send children under 16 to school.

But Sweden did reach its goal of only doubling the numbers of their typical flu deaths a year which is 2000 deaths, so it was successful. Sweden prediction was accurate on how many deaths they will have (4000 deaths) even though everyone was telling them it would be higher (100,000 deaths). Norway now wants to do want Sweden did in the next wave and said they overeacted. Long term speaking, what Sweden did is more realistic and practical and people will still have a normal life considering we might live with this virus for years. Their economy also went up which is a plus..

Yea, they said months ago that their strategy didn't work with nurse cares homes, where they had similar measures to the rest of the world. 

However, to this day Sweden did better than other countries with lockdowns. And when u look at the excess deaths, the difference even with its neighbours is almost non existent, which maybe shows the negative effects of lockdowns, given that its neighbours has less official deaths from covid.

And, if there will be a second wave, Sweden will win even bigger with their "failure".

Tell that to the 4000 dead, meanwhile here in Greece with a much worse economy and healthcare system we managed only 180 deaths.

Between Sweden and the rest sounds like the Netherlands

And I think Norwegian officials also admitted that they should have done something closer to what Sweden did.

Now 4468 people have died in Sweden because of corona virus and these numbers keep still rising. Swedish response was obviously a miserable failure and this is an objective fact. People who disagree must be mad or maybe they are just incredibly ignorant. Sweden is also the only Nordic country that failed to handle the corona crisis.

It's a fact that when u look only at covid death numbers, you cant have other opinion.

However, critical thinking should tell u to look at the entire picture. How many more lives could have be saved by throwing the same amount of money on other disease, for example. How many more people will die because of other causes neglected by covid? As I pointed out, sweden excess deaths are similar to Denmark, norway, Finland. How can it be if Sweden has so many covid deaths? :ohwell:
