Sweden’s Very Different Approach to the COVID-19 Pandemic

As European states, including France, are grappling with a rise in coronavirus cases, we are taking a look at the picture in Sweden. The Scandinavian country’s approach to COVID-19 has been controversial. Sweden never imposed a lockdown, although Swedes did respect government advice to social distance. We’re at one of Stockholm’s main markets and the scene here doesn’t look radically different than before the coronavirus pandemic broke out. There are no face masks in sight. There are no personal space barriers or health warnings at any of the stands. Swedish authorities have chosen to try and keep life going as normal as far as possible.

    They are so sensible. I admire what the Government in Sweden have done. I’m in Australia and all the lockdowns have impacted the young and so many people have lost their jobs. Yes we don’t have the deaths but I feel we are spending all this money just to delay the inevitable.

    What I’m hearing from people that I know in Australia, especially the areas of Melbourne and Victoria where there is a tyrannical lockdown, there are many deaths from suicide and pre-existing health issues. The affect on the mental health of the population along with the economic impact, will only increase as the lockdown continues. These deaths will have a far greater impact than a virus that appears to have a 94.6% (70yr+) to a 99.997% (0-19 yr) survival rate (CDC 9/24/2020). Time for those who haven’t, to open their eyes and minds as to what is transpiring by and through our corporate governments and, to take personal responsibility for your health (body and mind) and your medical and individual sovereignty.
