Sweden has followed a different Covid-19 strategy. Instead of imposing quarantines and lockdowns, it had a “common sense” policy of voluntary social distancing, border closures, and limits on crowds. Although it didn't mention the phrase “herd immunity”, that was essentially its goal.
However, something went very wrong with its policy for nursing homes. As in other countries, residents were treated as second-class citizens and often did not receive adequate treatment. Thousands have died. Why?
BioEdge's editor is going on holidays this week, so there will be no newsletter next weekend. We'll be back in mid-July.
Why have so many died?
