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

No. You need to compare their performance against the rest of Europe. Picking a small sub-set of the Scandinavian countries means you avoid analysing what went well and not so well in Sweden. They are ahead of Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the UK in terms of Covid19 stats and we need to ask why...

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.

Of course CFR is falling. Only an idiot would actually use it to point out a drastic difference in the disease.
