Many countries are seeing second waves, both those who had success tamping it down originally and those who didn't.
I wouldn't bet on Sweden being any different.
ANY different? But Sweden had a different curve on its first wave right?
So you claim that Sweden's 2nd wave relative to it's first, will have the same ratio of infections and deaths as the ratio of say Japan's 2nd wave to it's first?
Or do you claim that no, actually they'll be different?
One thing I would say about Sweden having lived there... and this is not scientific... the population density is extremely low and people are socially distancing normally... there's not a lot of cheek kissing. I guess that might have at least some effect. Anyway, I think it's difficult to directly compare different countries. For me, knowing how Swedes behave, the death rate is even more shocking.
The population density of Sweden is 25, Japan 347 per sq.km.
If you want to compare stats, compare the Nordic countries. Sweden is abysmal.
Yes, Norway and Finland each have half the population but a fraction of infections.
And we know that Sweden is 4th in world in per capita deaths. Outstanding!
Now if it were me and I was having such a grand time, I wouldn't be wasting my time digging posts that are a few days old about a place I used to live. Guess we are very different. Have you ever researched internet addiction?
