Don’t talk about Sweden unless you’ve read more than the headlines. They took an evidence-based approach considering the trade-offs to total shutdown. They made mistakes but it wasn’t political or cynical - it was the scientists calling the shots. For countries that aren’t isolated islands, there i...
