Daily COVID Deaths in Sweden Hit Zero, as Other Nations Brace for More Lockdowns

Daily COVID Deaths in Sweden Hit Zero, as Other Nations Brace for More Lockdowns

Opinion | More than 100,000 people flooded streets in France over the weekend and multiple COVID vaccination centers were vandalized as opposition grew to the government’s most recent pandemic strategy. In President Emmanuel Macron’s latest incarnation of lockdowns, government officials have decreed that unvaccinated individuals will no longer be allowed to enter cafes, restaurants, theaters, public transportation and more.

Needless to say, people were not happy.

France’s approach is unique, but it’s just one of many countries around the world imposing new restrictions as fears grow over a new variant of COVID-19. Australia’s recent restrictions have placed half the country under strict lockdown—even though a record 82,000 tests had identified just 111 new coronavirus cases—while restaurants in Portugal are struggling to survive amid newly imposed restrictions.

One country not making much news is Sweden.

Sweden, of course, was maligned in 2020 for foregoing a strict lockdown. The Guardian called its approach “a catastrophe” in the making, while CBS News said Sweden had become “an example of how not to handle COVID-19.”

Despite these criticisms, Sweden’s laissez-faire approach to the pandemic continues today. In contrast to its European neighbors, Sweden is welcoming tourists. Businesses and schools are open with almost no restrictions. And as far as masks are concerned, not only is there no mandate in place, Swedish health officials are not even recommending them.

What are the results of Sweden’s much-derided laissez-faire policy? Data show the 7-day rolling average for COVID deaths yesterday was zero (see below). As in nada. And it’s been at zero for about a week now.

Even a year ago, it was clear the hyperbolic claims about “the Swedish catastrophe” were false; just ask Elon Musk (also see: herehere, and here). But a year later the evidence is overwhelming that Sweden got the pandemic mostly right. Sweden’s overall mortality rate in 2020 was lower than most of Europe and its economy suffered far less. Meanwhile, today Sweden is freer and healthier than virtually any other country in Europe.

As much of the world remains gripped in fear and nations devise new restrictions to curtail basic freedoms, Sweden remains a vital and shining reminder that there is a better way.

    So the authorities got it wrong all along. Are they going to admit it and change? Of course not. They will continue to arrogantly deny reality.

      Of course everything they did was wrong. But, they were too easily given all they wanted from us, complete compliance to all of their dictates, in most countries. And look where we are today, living in the twilight zone, with soon to be mandated, experimental shots that come with no liability, and are completely useless in protecting from, or stopping covid, and they are anything but safe.

    Articles states 79% of adults have at least one dose of vaccine. It is difficulty for the public to make appropriate conclusions when some facts are omitted. In particular, facts that don’t support the view point of the author. Separately, Sweden, as per the countries published annual report, has a 97% vaccine rate fo childhood disease. The U.S. has about 76%

    Top virologists NOT working for drug companies ,media or government warned that mass vaccinations during a pandemic that only lowered symptoms would create more variants and prolong the misery and danger.

    Meanwhile Iceland is 95% vaccinated and riddled with covid infections as is Israel . They are already giving boosters of unapproved shot to the elderly to finish them off. Makes no sense since there are as many getting sick among the vaccinated as the unvaccinated and they have the same viral loads.

    Been using Sweden as an example for not using lockdowns since the very beginning! If you followed their numbers on worldometer and focus on the deaths per million (that equalizes them with larger populations) you would have seen many other countries with higher death rates and those countries had lock downs. So what does that tell you?? Lockdowns and mandates don’t work. You will see who comes out of this first..it will be Sweden for sure!. Hurd immunity is what you are shooting for and with that people have to get sick..it’s part of life! Running from any virus only prolongs it’s life long enough to allow for a varient, which is exactly what’s going on all over the world right now! Just look at the facts, they are out there if you are willing to pull yourself away from CNN!!!

      Herd immunity.

      Here is an interesting factoid which I believe you will appreciate.

      Within our bodies there are several different immune systems. We have both a system to remember immunity gained innately through being a mammal in a womb and breast feeding, or through exposure. And another system designed for battling illness. The later of course, relies in part on the first.

      We store innate immunity all through our bodies, even our bone marrows. When our bodies sense disease, complex mechanisms pull this memory to the surface, cellular activity alters, and our bodies own immune systems go to work.

      The argument against vaccination is simple, pre programming our bodies with vaccines prohibits passing down of innate immunity and taxes the immune system to a point it may not be able to mount effective defenses, because it’s pre occupied and confused because synthetic immunization process bypasses the bodies natural defenses, confusing the response to other illnesses. The argument against RNMA reprogramming goes a step further, because we’re recoding responses to be fixed on only one thing, (spike protein creation), with self replicating coding which may never wane and never relent, pre occupying our bodies to such a degree we may then experience ADE autoimmune dependent enhancement syndrome which would basically prime us to be more susceptible to other diseases, not less.

      There is also the hypotheses that if your parents were vaccinated, you might have this innate immunity and it may be counter productive and carry risk for your child to also be vaccinated for the same thing. Just because they can’t measure the response to disease as being present, does not mean a human may not have acquired the memory of the response through mammalian reproductive cycles. Some vaccine reactions may actually be because the host did have innate immunity and mounted a rapid response, but the use of adjuvants and high quantity of attenuated or even non attenuated virus load within vaccines, may have caused an excess immune system response. As the vaccine is designed under the premise you do not have innate immunity and would not be able to mount such an effective response, but would rather merely be creating the necessary vaccine memory. The waning immunity argument does not best this argument, because again, the memory may be present, but just in such minute quantity that it’s not readily measurable without something like a bone marrow test. It is why adults do not need vaccination for things they’ve already been vaccinated against.

      Nobody knows for sure but it is estimated each one of us could store hundreds of trillions of protective immunities, passed down through innate immunity going back to humanities beginnings. A protection to the vast majority of every pathogenic illness anyone in our lineage was ever exposed to.

      To make such a big deal about one single virus with such a high survivability rate. Clearly this is not about public health. Since when did every politician on the planet become a health expert? Since when did having a health related position with the government cause that person to be a superior doctor? Logic has left the building and these people are not thinking clearly. We opt out on principal until they can figure it out. Guess what covid fans, we have UNSUBSCRIBED.

    There is zero evidence for locking down healthy people, social distancing, and masks. All about compliance and control. Look at Australia, locking down again and vaccine mandates where 6 elderly with co-morbidities die in the last 6 months and 438 vaccine deaths. There were few actual sick people prior to the vaccine introduction and the hospitals report most cases and almost all severe cases from vaxxed.

    So, wearing masks kill people. There is also a virus inside the mask. No oxygen and your own toxins. Fouchi and Gates have to be hanged.

    I post this in response to the comment about Sweden’s childhood vaccination coverage. Apparently, childhood vaccinations are also VOLUNTARY Sweden, I am assuming that the covid-19 vaccine is also voluntary.

    Wearing masks does not kill you. Healthcare workers who work in the OR wear them every day even outside of this pandemic. They don’t die from wearing the mask. Get your head on straight.

      “I can’t believe you’re afraid of vaccines!” Said the person afraid of the air.

      Now we have to go back to the size of viruses vs the protective ability of the masks, dribble, spittle, and spray? Hard pass. Masks are annoying and do not have as broadly applicable occupational hazard applicability as people presume. Wear a mask and save the world. Science ™ 2020.

      Believe me, if it was that simple, we would still be wearing one. Head on straight, with no mask. It’s not necessary because we have (drumroll…) natural immunity.

    Wearing a mask outside a surgical setting does not stop the transmission of covid. It used to say this at OSHAs website, it’s since been changed to fit the narrative. I wish I would have taken a screenshot. I did take a photo of the box of masks at my workplace, it says “this product is an ear loop mask, this product is not a respirator and will not provide any protection against covid 19 or other viruses or contaminants.”

      Lyn, there may still be an online copy using the ‘WayBackMachine’. Check it out, it’s where you go to see if there may be a page capture from the past. The way back machine is one of the largest internet projects ever, they use automatic bot crawlers to screen image capture every listed, and sometimes delisted websites out there. If a page view is captured, it is saved in their databases, with easy searchability and free public access to research.

    I knew they had it right from day one. Humanity can’t run from viruses in this manner with lockdowns and masks. Death is part of life and all that had to be done was immunize the vulnerable who consented and leave the rest of us alone to make our own personal decisions and use our common sense on staying healthy. But of course, I live in communist Canada, (the land of the compliant), where the government more than overreacts and treats citizens like they are incapable of making decisions for themselves. I won’t be surprised when they set up concentration camps for the unvaccinated to protect us from ourselves. Under the pretense of “staying safe” and “love for others”, blah, blah, blah. Go Sweden! The country of common sense.

    Let’s not jump to conclusions.
    Sweden has it’s share of death.
    Sweden death rate is lower than USA and many industrial countries, but is still much higher the earth’s average.
    New Zealand and Australia have extremely lower covid death with much restrictions
    Yes the masks, lockdown, travel restrictions, ouccupancy limits, didn’t stop the spread,. They never were designed to. They only slow the spread and the death rate remains.
    Keep looking. Does Sweden have better treatment or prevention?
    What did Sweden learn?
    Why do less industrial countries have s lower death rate?

    I can’t figure out why in Illinois you can eat junk in a full theater without a mask, yet you have to ware a mask in school class.

      Still falling for the data manipulation propaganda? Good thing covid cured the flue, those stats are down. The numbers the numbers the deaths the deaths. Yet yearly death averages did not move.

      Just wait until the people figure out the variant is coming from their own bodies, because they took an experimental vaccine. I guess prions disease appears to be up and coming as a popular fad, how else could you explain peoples embracement of voluntarily acquiring something like that?

      It’s never to late to admit you were lied to in a very sophisticated way and believed it. It’s not too late to admit many people were lied to for nefarious purposes, that or it was such a monumental calamity of errors and plain incompetence that we should stop listening to people whom still can’t figure it out. The notion we’re 2 years into this and can’t find a solution, absurd. Ivermectin works. Early treatment saves lives. (because hospital covid treatment programs actually take lives.) It’s never too late to opt out and just say you’d rather unsubscribe from covid land. They’re out there saying niacin works, inhaleable steroids works, plasma treatments, vitamin mega doses, intravenous vitamin C works. That’s what they say on the internet and I believe them.

      We had ‘the variant’. Could not smell for weeks, ran low 02, all these awful symtoms. We consumed a mountain of vitamins, I personally doubled up on alcahol intake since that was out there as a possible solution too. I snorted an entire 10 year old expired bottle of nose spray with a weak steroid in it. Now we’re better and don’t need to worry about it. Natural Immunity acquired. ‘The spread’ stops here baby! It will be over when you let it be over. Just unsubscribe from this nonsense, find something else to occupy your time. Tell the government and syndicated news idiots to leave you alone. That’s what we did.
