Despite “advice” from the World Health Organization, Sweden’s government resisted the lockdown shenanigans.

It went instead instead for keeping schools open, not to mention gyms, bars and restaurants. It went too for treating its citizens like responsible adults and relied on them to caution themselves. Essentially, they trusted their people to do what most Brits would have done without having to be bullied into it – helped one another.

The results gave been pretty good. Anders Tegnell, who led the effort to keep Sweden open, told the media.

“According to our modelers, we are starting to see so many immune people in the population in Stockholm that it is starting to have an effect on the spread of the infection,”  and he added, “Our models point to some time in May.”

Tegnell’s comments reflect the concept of  “herd immunity”, in which most of the population is infected with the assumption that those who survive will not be infected again that was floated by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But under pressure from the media and his health “experts”, Johnson eventually wilted and shut down the United Kingdom. he himself got sick soon after.

The WHO has also insisted that there’s no evidence yet that Coronavirus antibodies leave the infected immune but the WHO, a front for the pharmaceutical industry that has no interest in people getting funny ideas that might inhibit the sale of vaccines, is not to be trusted.

So far, 14,385 people in Sweden have tested positive for Coronavirus. Of those, 1,540 have died. With a population of just 10 million, that would be the equivalent of about 9,000 deaths in the UK, whose purported death toll today stands at 20,000. Even  allowing for the unreliability and inflation of the Coronavirus “death” stats, that means Sweden is certainly faring no worse, in fact somewhat better than the UK.

But Tegnell said that the death toll,

“is not a failure for the overall strategy.” and added “It is a failure to protect our elderly who live in care homes.”

On that score at least, Sweden and the UK are on a par.
