While the US and Most of Europe Locked Down and Destroyed Their Economies, Sweden Stayed Open -- and Now Has Herd-Immunity and Only Fourteen People in ICU for Covid

Trust your Elites.

Worship them, even.

Pray to your New Gods of Incompetence and Twitter Snark.


In the global battle against the pandemic, few countries drew as much scrutiny and frequent criticism as Sweden during the early days. While the United States and most of Europe shut down their economies and put everyone on lockdown, the Swedes largely went about their business with no mandates for the wearing of masks or prohibitions on public gatherings. Sweden initially experienced a surge of novel coronavirus cases as compared to its neighbors. And then it felt like we stopped hearing about them quite so much. So what's been going on?

As this report from the Associated Press indicates, what’s been going on has largely been... not much, at least in terms of the virus. Sweden only made slight modifications to its policies after the initial surge, but largely stuck with the herd immunity strategy. And now, just as much of Europe is experiencing a second surge in cases, Sweden has some of the lowest numbers in all of Europe. So did their herd immunity strategy actually work?

..

Among Sweden's population of ten million, they currently have a total of 14 people in ICU beds fighting COVID. In the past two weeks, they have reported 30.3 new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people. By comparison, Spain is at 292.2 and France reports 172.1. That's a rather startling difference.

...

This should leave us to wonder if that wasn’t the ideal solution from the beginning. If we had locked down the nursing homes and provided relief to everyone over the age of 55 so they could stay home, along with anyone with a doctor's note saying they had underlying respiratory or immune system issues, could we have just left the rest of the economy running?

Meanwhile, former (attempted) humor magazine Cracked is now declaring that South Park shouldn't do an episode on covid, because there's just no place for comedy In These Trying Times.

One of the most amazing accomplishment of Trump is turning all of these low-level neurotics and hysterics into absolutely insane melt-brains who effectively all announce, "We're no longer interested in doing our actual jobs, we are converting this corporation into an adjunct of Biden for President."

Now This is Comedy:

Ahaha. Incredible.

So Trump

The difference between France and Spain is startling as well. I am thinking that testing is the problem, not underlying population. These are really huge differences.

47 Sweden as an external example is all well and good, but we don't even need that. When examining COVID outcomes based on time to lockdown by state (e.g., how quickly did they lockdown), aggressiveness of lockdown, time since exiting lockdown and controlling for population, we find ...

No correlation. There is a modest, though probably not statistically relevant, *negative* correlation. Same with masks. Statistically neutral.

In other words, even without the external example, we know from our *own* experience across the states that lockdowns and mask mandates have no positive effects, with potential negative effects (though that one is shaky). It doesn't work, and it doesn't work very clearly.

But it was never about efficacy or honesty, so it doesn't matter.

Oh, for sure. Perhaps I was unclear. I meant evidence for negative effects with regard to the 'Rona itself is shaky. The *other* negative effects are writ large. Unemployment. Isolation. Substance abuse. Suicide. Debt. Economic activity. But those aren't specifically 'Rona spread.

There is no doubt that the cure is worse than the disease. Even if the cure had *worked* - something for which there is no evidence - it would be questionable.

127 Welp. This is not the decision that Trump made.

Why?

Sweden does not equal the United States.

Hell the real world is full of variables and direct comparisons is not possible, IOW this is not a science clean lab where you can control the variables.


The world is a global economy. The two largest economies are the US and China.

Then there is airline travel in the jet age and traffic patterns.

There was also different mutations of COVID which unfortunately the CDC was trying to make their tests capable of differentiating.

IOW Sweden does not have 1/10 of the international airports or international Chinese travel that the US does. Or Chinese students coming to their science and business colleges, English is the dominant language in air traffic, business and science and the Chinese know this. They are not going to Sweden.

And New York and California probably have more immigrants from China that still travel back to see family during the holidays when this pandemic hit than the whole entire population of Sweden.

And New York and California probably have more immigrants from China that still travel back to see family during the holidays when this pandemic hit than the whole entire population of Sweden.

179 In the global battle against the pandemic, few countries drew as much
scrutiny and frequent criticism as Sweden during the early days.
---
They were the only ones that behaved like adults.

As rhomboid (and some others) were pointing out at the beginning, once an easily transmitted disease 'gets out' (around a percent of the population effected), it's too late to stop it getting to as many people as it needs to to be stopped by herd immunity. It's only a question of how long you take to get to that point. Sweden more or less let it go and got their infections up front so they're basically done with the disruption, while the rest of the world is paying the price for foolishly dragging it out.

People don't even seem to remember the theory for dragging it out. 15 days to slow the spread wasn't about preventing when people got sick, it was about spacing them out so anyone who needed a hospital bed could get one (and specifically those who need respirators-which turned out to be the wrong treatment for many of them, and in any case was only saving about 20% of those who went on them). Now people want to pretend if they hide long enough they'll *never* get it.

Which is just not how this works.

253 Diamond Princess was an excellent bit of luck in some respects, it was a good transmission/rate of symptomatics/rate of acute cases data trove, but it didn't provide all the answers.

Sweden dismissed college-level students from returning from their break, and banned large gatherings. Natural decline in social interaction occurred as well.

Sweden failed to ID/counter the heavily skewed threat to the elderly (they acknowledged this pretty quickly); that, and Sweden's two recent mild flu seasons, probably account for their "excess deaths" (actually, a reasonable estimate put the "missing" deaths from last two seasons within a few hundred of current "excess").

The truly astonishing/appalling part of all this, some noted by other commenters: the docility, ignorance, and submission of the public; the incompetence, lack of integrity, and attitude of public health institutions; the nearly-instant evaporation of any sort of constraint on public mandates, whether legal, constitutional, or common sense.

And the damage in the US continues. Several states abusing their citizens as badly as ever, with top-cover from the Beltway, implicit or otherwise. UK, others also showing literally zero learning from the last few months. Israel doing its dumbest, in a futile effort to "flatten the curve" which they should know will flatten itself, inexorably.

264 127 Welp. This is not the decision that Trump made.

Why?

Sweden does not equal the United States.

Hell the real world is full of variables and direct comparisons is not possible, IOW this is not a science clean lab where you can control the variables.


The world is a global economy. The two largest economies are the US and China.

Then there is airline travel in the jet age and traffic patterns.

There was also different mutations of COVID which unfortunately the CDC was trying to make their tests capable of differentiating.

IOW Sweden does not have 1/10 of the international airports or international Chinese travel that the US does. Or Chinese students coming to their science and business colleges, English is the dominant language in air traffic, business and science and the Chinese know this. They are not going to Sweden.

And New York and California probably have more immigrants from China that still travel back to see family during the holidays when this pandemic hit than the whole entire population of Sweden.

Covid and how Trump did everything wrong? Bill Gates HATES publicity.
His entire life.



Yeah, Gates hates publicity. Sure. That's why he's suddenly tasked himself with Curing the World of Disease Using Vaccines. He's Our Technocrat Savior!

/do not pay attention to the fact that the Gates polio vaccine has caused an outbreak of polio in Africa, and is not welcome in India for what his vaccines did there.

Because 70% or more support wearing masks. Look at Trump rallies, even half or more wear masks. Its not him, its the electorate, so he cant afford to push an unpopular position that could cost him the election.

Based on his tweets though subtly alluding to what he really thinks about this scamdemic, Im confident post election he would spend the next 4 years ripping the masks off 300 millions Americans and burning it with napalm.

384 Greetings:

Back around '57, my Mother came into my room and said, "Listen. Your Sister has the flu. Stay out of her room. I'll take care of her. Got it ???"

Mother wasn't given to asking if I had any questions.

Just watched a Kim Klacik commercial that was absolutely fantastic followed by a Kelly Loeffler one that was ridiculous. I don;t know who is producing the Klacik ads but he/she/they/it should be hired by the RNC immediately and made mandatory for every vulnerable senate candidate.
It is deserving of the sidebar.

389 345 A bit early for the Sweden call. Their testing rate is less than half that of ours in the UK yet their death rate is almost the same. This may be the right call if, in a month or two's time, they do not have a second wave (neighbouring Finland and Norway seem to be suffering the start of one).
Posted by: Steve Turner at September 21, 2020 05:35 PM (vHb93)

A point we keep forgetting because of so much gaslighting...

Testing is stupid for people without symptoms. Non-symptomatic people who test positive do *not* pass it on, that's been one of the huge myths. People who cough and sneeze and feel terrible can pass it on.

The "second wave" was caused by the lockdowns. No lockdowns, no "second wave".

They were lying about the number of deaths

They were lying about the treatment

They lied about both

Posted by: Cat Ass Trophy at September 21, 2020 05:40 PM (dNzKv)

Yup.
China's reported numbers were about provoking a response by the rest of the world, which our leaders foolishly (or maliciously) went along with.

398 Sweden may have had slightly higher numbers of deaths earlier, which some attributed to failure to protect their more vulnerable (nursing home types).


The curve can be bent down some, and mild infection (mild amount of initial inoculum) gives the body more time to build antibodies before severe illness ... (so some cautions like avoiding indoor crowds, might help in some cases, especially longer contact in crowds)


AND some protections like HCQ seem to lower risk and lessen severity ... so it is not like we should ignore it completely. But herd immunity has always worked, along with convincing sick people not to run around infecting people. Beyond that, let most of the population develop the herd immunity, and recovery happens soon ... (except when there is a tyrant to remove from office, then a brand new protocol is needed)


I wonder how many in Sweden developed antibodies by being exposed to C19, and how many had "natural immunity" from previous covids. Some supposition says we may only need 15-20% to get new immunity, since many are already covid resistant. Real Science has to speak from the shadows, or they get fired and censored.

399 This article seems apropos -
mcgill.ca/oss/article/covid-19-health/which-sweden-do-you-want-believe

Sweden *did not* promote Herd Immunity like Boris Johnson did for the UK, when it got hit. Sweden *did* suffer a higher death rate than its Scandinavian neighbours - which I notice Ace doesn't mention here. But I'll mention it - 5500, against 10,000,000 total.

The economy suffered, along the lines of Denmark's and Norway's. -4.5% contraction.

To the extent Sweden has Herd Immunity now - despite not asking for it - that's because it has a smarter herd than we have.

Sweden had the advantage, if you will, of a communitarian society which its government could trust to play it safe. It did not, in short, have a population of American Conservatives.

That "Democrats For Life" letter in Tim Pool's video is really something else.

Every argument they make is an electoral one. No question of morality, not once.
