With all the talk about Sweden's approach to handling the Covid-19 pandemic, this makes for compelling reading, the article suggests that they may have accidently stumbled upon herd immunity, it also goes onto claim that those that have been infected with milder Coronaviruses, may have some immunity to covid-19 - https://reason.com/2020/08/14/did-sweden-accidentally-blunder-into-covid-19-herd-immunity/I am really not sure why Sweden's response gets on so many peoples nerves...it seems to me that people just want lock-downs regardless if they are effective or not because they feel safer if "something is being done."
I still think the Swedes probably got it right, aside from not adequately protecting the old early on...but many lock-down countries also messed that up. If you look at the stats in the EU countries it isn't exactly clear that one approach resulted in better results than another. There is still a lot to play out here.
It should be noted again that despite increasing cases, the number of daily deaths in the EU is still very low. This really was a March-April event for them, the number of daily deaths well and truly has fallen away.
