Re: It's official, Sweden declare themselves the Covid winners

I could be wrong but I don't think Sweden was front line with early infections. Italy, Spain, France, and Belgium were. Sweden should be compared with their own Scandinavian neighbours who were in a similar position. Sweden just stood back and said to the virus, 'come and get me'. It did. No. You n...

New Zealand's Covid response was and still is attacked by 'economy first, health second' pandemic-deniers using Sweden's supposed lockdown-free approach as a weapon.
