To Swede, Or Not To Swede?
Friends, as every country plagued with this, well, plague struggles with the question of how to manage it, one of the most pressing issues is whether or not we want to emulate the "Swedish model" of fairly relaxed restrictions versus the Italian model of a total lockdown. Today I bring you both sides of the debate. The first article is a criticism of the Swedish approach, which argues that it has created far more deaths than in neighboring Nordic countries. The second article is a frank conversation with a expert pathologist who suggests that the strict quarantine now being applied to everyone may make no sense. He cites Britain's much higher death rate when compared with...Sweden! What's the truth? You decide.
Lastly, building on the article I posted yesterday, here's even more evidence that the spread of COVID-19 may be far wider than previously believed. In one Massachusetts town, one-third of all residents (randomly selected) tested positive for antibodies!
