Thanks to in for this piece on the Swedish experiment and its failures. #COVID19 #HerdImmunity .

Very, very sobering reading for anyone stubbornly arguing for the Swedish Covid model. Watch Stockholm carefully over the next 8 weeks.
And read this piece on what really happened in Sweden
Sweden's response described in Science magazine 1/
Excellent article on the 'Swedish approach' by in Science.
If you're ever going to read anything about the Swedish strategy - here is an article - the best summary of the last 10 months. I highly recommend this to anyone thinking herd immunity or lax measures are going to save you from the virus. #covid19
This is a very rich description in Science Magazine of some of the things that have baffled critics of the Swedish corona response. Surreal to say the least.
It's very interesting that I'm seeing no noise from the usual "academic silencing" group about this
A comprehensive piece that will help you English speakers understand what on earth has been happening in Corona Sweden TY for good scientific journalism
“Agnieszka Howoruszko, an ophthalmologist at a regional hospital in Landskrona, began to wear a mask in March when she examined patients. “My manager reprimanded me twice” Howoruszko held her ground. “I said, ‘I’m sorry, if I can’t wear it, I cannot work.”
" the impact of Sweden’s approach is unmistakable. The country has seen roughly 590 deaths per million—on par with 591 per million in the United States and 600 in Italy, but many times the 50 per million in Norway, 108 in Denmark, and 113 in Germany.
Excellent report on the Swedish response to #COVID19

3/ "...better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection." This Great Barrington Declaration is close to the Swedish #COVID19 strategy, which has proven deadly. I agree w/ assessment of this Berkshires lunacy.
Facing criticism for doing your job as a scientist or expert. Surreal examples from Sweden. That said, happens all the time everywhere. Make sure the science backs you, be clear about the unknowns and possible risks. Science flourishes on conversation.
A terrific look by at Sweden's outlier COVID-19 response and the backlash against Swedes who complained that the country has been too lax.
this is quite a read.

Interesting piece re: COVID in Sweden. Depressingly, their debate has also been marred by conformism and intolerance—just with the positions reversed relative to the US and UK. Seems like we need treatments for group-think as well as treatments for COVID.
